    Hilton Worldwide has reached an agreement to introduce its upscale Hilton Garden Inn brand to Spreitenbach, a growing commercial zone located within the greater Zurich area. The new build hotel is expected to welcome its first guests in 2016 and joins Hilton Zurich Airport, which has been trading for more than 40 years.Hilton Worldwide has signed a franchise agreement with HRMP AG, which will manage the hotel on behalf of real estate owners Immo Invest Partners AG, the company responsible for the Kreuzäcker Master Plan. The project was agreed on 29th May, at a singing event attended by HRMP AG, Hilton Worldwide, and ImmoInvest. Hilton Garden Inn Zurich Limmattal will include 120 guest rooms, underground parking, a round-the-clock fitness centre, restaurant and bar. Business guests can take advantage of flexible meetings and board room space. Hilton Garden Inn is well loved by guests around the globe for its upscale amenities, which enable guests to work in comfort, stay fit and relax during their stay.

    Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president, development, Europe & Africa, Hilton Worldwide, said, “With more than one Hilton Garden Inn hotel due to open every month in Europe, Middle East and Africa this year, our mid-market brand is growing rapidly across the region. Mixed-use developments such as this, which combine commercial, retail, residential and hotel accommodation support growing business hubs and we’re looking forward to contributing to Spreitenbach’s growth as an important commercial destination.”

    Adrian Kurre, global head, Hilton Garden Inn, said: “Hilton Garden Inn has an existing presence in Switzerland with our Davos hotel – and this latest agreement paves the way for further growth. Hilton Garden Inn is a perfect match for the compelling corporate demand from the many businesses located in Spreitenbach. The hotel’s upscale business and leisure amenities, with productive meeting spaces and relaxing public areas, are designed with our guest experience at the forefront and we look forward to opening our doors in 2016.”

    Hilton Garden Inn Zurich Limmattal will be located less than 20 kilometers from Zurich’s exhibition centre, and within 25 kilometers of Zurich Airport, Switzerland’s largest transport centre. The hotel will benefit from the planned introduction of the Limmattalbahn – the public train which will include a stop in front of the hotel.
