SEVILLE, Spain - Hilton Worldwide is today celebrating the introduction of a third member of its portfolio of brands to Spain, as the 140 guestroom, mid-market Hilton Garden Inn Sevilla opens its doors. It follows the recent opening of Spain's first DoubleTree by Hilton and now sees Hilton Worldwide operating seven hotels in the country.

Hilton Garden Inn's debut Spanish property has been newly built in contemporary urban style as part of the Parque Empresarial Torneo complex, the largest private business park in Spain.  The hotel's highly accessible location sees it just 4.5km from central Sevilla and 10km from its airport, offering a convenient base from which to explore the treasures of one of Spain's most picturesque and vibrant cities, which itself benefits from high speed rail links across the country.

Simon Vincent, area president, EMEA, Hilton Worldwide said, "There has been a resurgence of visitors to Spain in recent years, with the outlook for growth and the competitiveness of the country's tourism sector looking very positive. So while the economic environment may have its challenges, we are confident in Spain's future as a tourism destination. As testament to this we are delighted to be introducing Hilton Garden Inn, a mid-market brand which is proving tremendously popular right across Europe, which will be well suited to its first Spanish location in Sevilla."

Set on the glistening banks of the Guadalquivir River, Sevilla's rich history and culture ensures its place as Southern Spain's premier tourist destination.  Home to architecture with strong Moorish and Gothic influences, its charm has over the years inspired works such as Carmen, Don Juan and Figaro.  Whether taking in the landmark sights of the royal palace Alcázar de Sevilla and La Giralda minaret, or experiencing its exquisite cuisine and passion for music and dance, the city continues to captivate its visitors. 

Business is also integral to the lifeblood of the city, with the cutting edge facilities and eye catching design of Parque Empresarial Torneo becoming home to hundreds of corporate offices.  Its continued growth has seen a range of restaurants, bars and retail outlets locate in the area and the addition of Spain's first Hilton Garden Inn underlines its position as a regional success story.

Befitting its excellent location for meetings and events, the property offers approximately 300   square metres of meeting space.  Each of the five state-of-the-art meetings rooms are open to natural daylight with options to cater for groups of up to 200 delegates. A spacious outdoor terrace provides an excellent additional location for business or social functions as well as for guests soaking up the Andalusian sunshine.  All guests are granted access to a 24 hour business centre and provided complimentary high speed Wi-Fi internet access. 

Mark Nogal, regional head of Hilton Garden Inn, EMEA, said, "We are excited to be welcoming our first guests to Spain at Hilton Garden Inn Sevilla.  As a brand we pride ourselves on catering to the needs of the busy modern traveller and in Parque Empresarial Torneo we have a hotel which pays tribute to the rich heritage of Sevilla while offering our style of warm and personal hospitality."

Hilton Garden Inn Sevilla features all-day dining at its Grill restaurant serving an exciting blend of international and Spanish dishes, all prepared from the finest local ingredients.  Guests will be able to savour authentic Andalusian hospitality at the hotel's lobby bar, with its patterns reminiscent of the city's iconic cathedral.  An extensive bar menu includes the local sherry, sourced from the famous bodegas of Jerez de la Frontera.  For those in need of a quick bite, the 24 hour Pavilion Pantry offers guests light snacks and refreshments throughout the day and night.

Guests will also have the opportunity to embrace the lifestyle of a region famed for its warm climate and outdoor culture.  A range of leisure facilities including a fitness centre, paddle tennis court and outdoor swimming pool are available on site, whilst Seville's quality golf courses and a variety of water sports along the scenic Guadalquivir River are also on the hotel's doorstep.

Following December's opening of Spain's maiden DoubleTree by Hilton hotel in Emporda, Catalonia, Hilton Garden Inn becomes the second new brand introduced to the Spanish market in a matter of months.
