LIMA, Peru and MCLEAN, Va. - Hilton Worldwide has announced that it has signed a management agreement with J.G.J. Proyectistas S.A.C. for the 207-room new-build Hilton Lima Miraflores.  The project, originally planned as a franchise agreement and now to be managed by Hilton Worldwide, is on track to debut by the end of 2012 as the company's first managed property in Peru and the brand's first Hilton Hotels & Resorts hotel in the country.   The full-service Hilton Lima Miraflores is expected to bring 170 employment opportunities to the city's residents and support the demand for upscale accommodation in the flourishing destination. 

Christopher J. Nassetta, President and Chief Executive Officer, Hilton Worldwide, joined the company's regional team in Lima, Peru to officially announce the deal.

"Hilton Worldwide is experiencing a period of remarkable global growth - with the highest growth rate of any major lodging company, the largest pipeline in the industry, and the largest Latin America expansion in our history," said Nassetta.  "Peru, with its stable economy and continued growth, is a prime market for international travel, and we are delighted to be working with J.G.J. Proyectistas on bringing this exceptional property to one of Latin America's most important cities."

Currently under construction, Hilton Lima Miraflores is located 13 miles from the international airport in an upscale area of Lima known for its shopping areas, gardens, flower-filled parks, beaches and fine dining.  The hotel, which forms part of the Miracorp Complex, is also near a thriving culinary scene making it ideal for both business and leisure travelers.  

Featuring 207 rooms, including 45 executive rooms, nine suites and a presidential suite, Hilton Lima Miraflores will reflect a sophisticated, modern Peruvian aesthetic.  All guest rooms will feature the Hilton Serenity CollectionTM of amenities, while guests staying in an executive room or suite will enjoy the added benefit of the hotel's concierge service and executive lounge, offering light snacks and beverages throughout the day.

The hotel will provide a great base for events and business travelers, with nine meeting rooms, a business center and a grand ballroom that will accommodate 350 people.  Guests will also enjoy a full service restaurant, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, lobby bar, and a sky terrace with a heated outdoor swimming pool, spa and fitness center by Precor®.

Hilton Lima Miraflores will participate in Hilton HHonors®, the only guest rewards program that allows members to earn Points & Miles® for the same stay and redeem points for free nights with No Blackout Dates at more than 3,800 hotels worldwide.
