History[edit]

The Hilton Garden Inn brand began in the late 1980s under the name CrestHill by Hilton. Due to a slow real estate phase, only four of 25 proposed hotels were built. Of these four original hotels, three are still part of the chain today. They are located in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Southfield, Michigan, and Valencia, California. The other hotel, located in Buffalo Grove, Illinois, is now a Four Points. The brand was reintroduced in 1990 as Hilton Garden Inn and has grown from four hotels to more than 720 properties in about 25 years.

In 2012, the first Hilton Garden Inn outside of North America was opened in Netherlands—the Hilton Garden Inn Leiden. It is located on the Old Rhine River, featuring 173 guestrooms and providing all of the brand's signature features.[2]

Future developments[edit]

The Hilton Garden Inn brand plans to open properties in Albania, Argentina, Armenia, Busselton, Faroe Islands, Hong Kong, Saudi Arabia, Thailand, Turkey, India, Kenya, Ireland, and additional locations throughout the United States, Canada, UK, Italy, Germany, Romania, Namibia,[3] Colombia, Panama, Costa Rica, and Poland.

Hilton Garden Inn announced the opening of one of its hotels in the port city of Santa Marta, Colombia, by 2016.[4]
