SEVILLE, Spain - Hilton Garden Inn today celebrates the official opening of the award-winning brand's first hotel in Spain: Hilton Garden Inn Sevilla. More than 200 guests enjoyed an evening filled with unique entertainment and local dishes prepared by the hotel's executive chef.

At the exclusive event, attended by Excmo. Sr Don Juan Ignacio Zoido, Seville's Mayor and guests from leading local businesses, the brand demonstrated its refreshing, modern feel with an innovative garden theme, including a maze in the hotel lobby and costumed entertainers welcoming guests on the hotel's outdoor terrace.

Mark Nogal, regional head, focused service brand management, EMEA, said, "This fantastic event has been the perfect way to celebrate the brand's first hotel in Spain and to introduce Hilton Garden Inn Sevilla to the city of Seville and to the wider country, with our signature style and hospitality. We look forward to inviting more guests to experience all the hotel has to offer."

The evening started with a performance from one of Seville's most popular music groups, Los Escarabajos, and afterwards guests danced to the rhythms played by DJ Álvaro Vacas accompanied by a saxophone player. A stunning light display from a garden-themed stage was reflected on to the surface of the swimming pool and the striking architecture of the building. Traditional Andalucian dishes, including cod in orange sauce and ox tail with pistachio crumbs were served throughout the evening on the hotel's terrace, along with cocktails provided by Botanic Gin and Bacardi Rum.

Alejandro Casamor, general manager, Hilton Garden Inn Sevilla, said, "We are proud to showcase our new hotel to all of the guests at this thrilling opening event, and to all future guests who are looking for unparalleled service and hospitality."

The 140 room hotel opened its doors in March this year and guests have been enjoying the Hilton Garden Inn brand's essential service and amenities, which include a 24 hour business centre with complimentary high speed Wi-Fi internet access, and the 24 hour Pavilion Pantry offering light snacks and refreshments throughout the day and night.

Located in the Parque Empresarial Torneo, Hilton Garden Inn Sevilla is just 4.5km from central Sevilla, and features a range of leisure facilities including a fitness centre, paddle tennis court and outdoor swimming pool, while Seville's quality golf courses and a variety of water sports along the scenic Guadalquivir River are also on the hotel's doorstep.
