Hilton Garden Inn Brand Expanding to Lithuania and Latvia
Hilton Worldwide will be welcoming guests in each of the Baltic nations by 2018 following plans unveiled today to bring its midscale Hilton Garden Inn brand to Lithuania and Latvia. The announcement, made at a press conference in Vilnius attended by the mayor of the city, follows last month’s opening of Hilton Tallinn Park, Estonia, the company’s first hotel in the Baltic region.
Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president, development, EMEA, Hilton Worldwide, said: “The Baltic states are amongst some the most attractive destinations in Europe for doing business and the WTTC forecasts each area is set to benefit from increased government investment in travel and tourism – with Lithuania alone looking at an increase of over 60% by 2026. The success of last month’s opening of Hilton Tallinn Park makes this the opportune moment to demonstrate our commitment to the wider Baltic region by announcing our entry to both Lithuania and Latvia.”
