MCLEAN, Va. - Hilton Worldwide announced that it has signed a management agreement for a 260-room new-build Hilton hotel in the Santa Fe area of Mexico City, Mexico. The hotel will form part of Samara - one of the five largest mixed-use complexes in the country, featuring more than 3.8 million square feet of space combining corporate offices, a shopping center and the upscale Hilton Santa Fe Mexico City. Currently under construction, Hilton Santa Fe Mexico City is expected to open in March 2014.

"This is an exciting development for us as we expand our portfolio in Mexico and across Latin America," Rob Palleschi, global head, Hilton Hotels & Resorts, said. "Hilton Santa Fe
Mexico City will feature stylish design and bring our signature hospitality to one of Mexico City's major business districts."

With contemporary and dynamic architecture, designed by Diametro Arquitectos, the hotel makes a statement in this vibrant and modern area of Mexico City. Hilton Santa Fe Mexico City delivers a distinctive design that fuses the contrasting elements of a crystal building with open, manicured gardens. Strategically located on a prominent intersection of the Santa Fe business district, this Hilton hotel in Mexico City not only connects guests with offices, retail center and entertainment, it also invites visitors to a world-class arrival experience. The interior, designed by award-winning HBA / Hirsch Bedner Associates in San Francisco, welcomes guests to a grand and sophisticated lobby featuring double height ceilings, rich materials and natural light, as well as access to a coffee bar, lounge and signature restaurant - a perfect place for travelers to socialize, perform business or find relaxation.

Danny Hughes, senior vice president, Caribbean, Mexico and Latin America, Hilton Worldwide said, "Mexico continues to afford great opportunities for tourism, with its diverse destinations, developed infrastructure and growing economy. Because of this, our development efforts in the country stay strong, and the signing of this latest management agreement for a Hilton in Santa Fe, Mexico City is a welcome addition and complement to our growing portfolio of hotels in the country."

Ideal for both business and leisure travelers, the upscale Hilton Santa Fe Mexico City will feature 260 guest rooms including executive floor rooms and suites, all outfitted with the Hilton Serenity CollectionTM of amenities boasting plush bedding, high-definition flat screen television, alarm clock with MP3 player connection, wireless Internet access and more. Guests staying in an executive room or suite will enjoy the added benefit of the hotel's executive floor service and executive lounge, which will offer light snacks and beverages in a relaxed and scholarly ambiance similar to a library feel.

A great base for events and business travelers, the Hilton hotel in Mexico City's Santa Fe area will provide more than 8,000 square feet of flexible meeting space including a mezzanine level ballroom elegantly designed with warm textured wood feature walls and contemporary chandeliers. A business center boasting cutting edge work spaces and seamlessly integrated technology will also be available for guests to work with efficiency and style.

Guests of Hilton Santa Fe Mexico City will also enjoy dining and recreational amenities. The rooftop level - a jewel and oasis in the city, features rooftop pool, bar and fitness center, while acting as a flexible space perfectly designed for private events. Dining selections will include a signature restaurant, lobby lounge and coffee bar - all conveniently accessible in the lobby area. A 2,500 space parking lot - part of the Samara development - completes the facilities.

Hilton Santa Fe Mexico City will participate in Hilton HHonors®, the only guest rewards program that allows members to earn Points & Miles® for the same stay and redeem points for free nights with No Blackout Dates at more than 3,800 hotels worldwide.

Hilton Worldwide currently has a portfolio of 30 hotels and resorts open and welcoming travelers in Mexico. The company is actively pursuing additional Latin America growth opportunities with a robust development pipeline that includes properties in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico, Panama and Uruguay.
