Hilton Hotels has announced plans to open its first Hilton Garden Hotel in Turkey in 2009.
The 150-room hotel in Diyarbakir, in the country’s southeast, will be owned by Amplio Gayrimenkul Yatirim ve Gelistirme Anonim Sirketi (Amplio), and will be the first of 15 Garden Hotels Hilton expects to manage in the country.
Hilton Hotels Europe president Wolfgang Neumann says Turkey is a key market for the brand’s growth.
“We have identified Turkey as a key development market where we believe there exists significant growth opportunities for the hotel sector across the country for our family of hotels,” he says.
“With eight hotels in Turkey already – seven Hilton hotels and one Conrad Hotel – the introduction of the Hilton Garden Inn brand will be the perfect fit to fulfil demand for quality mid-market accommodation in this sector.”
Hilton has plans to open Garden Inn’s across Italy, Poland, Germany and Russia over the next 24 months.
