MUNICH, Germany and McLEAN, Va. - Hilton Hotels & Resorts has opened its first hotel at Munich Airport in Germany.

The 389 guest room property is the only hotel to provide direct access to the terminal building and establishes a Hilton Worldwide presence at more than 35 major airports across Europe.

Simon Vincent, president and executive vice president, EMEA, Hilton Worldwide, said, "The opening of Hilton Munich Airport follows new Hilton Worldwide airport hotels at London's Heathrow and Gatwick as well as Krakow in Poland.
