    Hilton Worldwide announced the opening of the new-build 103-room Hilton Garden Inn Tucuman, the brand’s first hotel in Argentina. The company also announced the official appointment of Agustin Maddocks, former rooms division manager at Hilton Buenos Aires, as general manager of the upscale Hilton Garden Inn Tucuman in Northern Argentina.Known as The Garden of the Republic due to its vast natural beauty, Tucuman is less than a two hour flight from Argentina’s capital city of Buenos Aires and the Hilton Garden Inn Tucuman is approximately 25 minutes from the international airport.

    The Hilton Garden Inn Tucuman features 103 guest rooms, all decorated with local culture and history in mind. Each room features unique decorative pots, specially designed by artisans from Calchaquies Valley, as well as original prints with themes depicting the different indigenous groups of the area. Rooms also offer calming and comfortable bedding, LCD high-definition Smart TV, easy-to-set alarm clock with MP3 connectivity, a spacious work desk, and a “hospitality centre” that features a mini refrigerator and coffee maker.

    Before heading to their rooms, guests are welcomed to a lobby featuring a Green Wall made of expired Palo Santo trees, native to Northern Argentina. In an effort to protect the region’s natural resources, no live trees were used when creating the decorative wall that invites nature into the interior of this new Hilton Garden Inn hotel in Tucuman.

    Dining options include a contemporary full service restaurant overlooking the pool and offering freshly prepared breakfast, lunch and dinner. The hotel also features a bar and the 24-hour Pavilion Pantry® shop with a selection of delicious readymade meals, beverages and snacks.
