SAO PAULO, Brazil and MCLEAN, Va. – May 3, 2018 – Hilton (NYSE: HLT) and Hotelaria Brasil today announced the signing of a strategic development agreement for Hotelaria Brasil to initially develop five franchised Hampton by Hilton hotels in Brazil – marking the brand’s debut in the country. The announcement underscores Hilton’s commitment to expand throughout the Caribbean and Latin America, and reinforces the upper-midscale brand’s momentum with 139 openings worldwide in 2017, including Hampton hotels in the Dominican Republic, Colombia, Mexico and Uruguay. As part of the agreement, the companies have confirmed the first hotel is scheduled to open in 2019 at Guarulhos Airport in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Expected to open in early 2019, the 160-room Hampton by Hilton Guarulhos Airport is located less than two miles from the airport. In addition to Hampton’s global commitment to delivering unprecedented guest service in its category, the hotel will feature a three-meal-a-day restaurant with local and international menu; bar/lounge; fitness center; event space for up to 300 guests; and complimentary airport shuttle. Locally inspired contemporary design and functional guest rooms combined with activated public areas will uniquely differentiate Hampton from other hotel brands.
