NEW DELHI and JAIPUR, India and MCLEAN, Va. - Hilton Worldwide today announced the signing of a management agreement with Fruitful Buildcon Private Limited for a Hilton brand hotel in Jaipur.  The launch of Hilton Jaipur later this year will mark Hilton Worldwide's entry into the city, one of the most popular tourist destinations in India. 

Located in the heart of the city, Hilton Jaipur will offer the ideal base for leisure as well as business travellers. In addition to being minutes from popular tourist attractions that include Hawa Mahal, City Palace and Albert Hall Museum, the hotel will be in close proximity to shopping and entertainment hubs including Johari and Bapu Bazaar. The hotel's location near government establishments in Civil Lines, and business and commercial districts in Gopalpura Industrial Area and M.I. Road will also make it well-suited for business travellers.

"Hilton prides itself in providing guests with high quality accommodations and services, and the addition of our Hilton Jaipur property will be no exception. With a prime location in the heart of the city, spacious guest accommodations fully equipped with signature Hilton touches and a full range of upscale facilities and services for leisure and business, we are confident our new location will become the hotel of choice for travellers visiting the city," said Rob Palleschi, global head, Hilton Hotels & Resorts. "We are thrilled Hilton Jaipur will be our fifth Hilton brand hotel in India, which is one of our most important growth markets."

Owned by Fruitful Buildcon Private Limited and managed by Hilton Worldwide, Hilton Jaipur will feature 179 rooms and suites that range in size from 360 square feet to 650 square feet. Each equipped with the complete range of facilities and services, hotel guests will enjoy signature Hilton Serenity Beds, ergonomic workstations and four-fixture baths.  The hotel will also feature four trendy and exciting dining outlets, a round-the-clock business centre, outdoor swimming pool and 24-hour fitness centre.  With 10,000 square feet of state-of-the-art conference and event space that includes an open-air patio and a 3,300 square foot ballroom with a 21-foot high ceiling, the hotel will also present the ideal setting for exclusive mid-sized and intimate business meetings and social gatherings.

"We are very excited with this opportunity to extend our hotel network to include Jaipur.  Recently, Hilton Worldwide also signed an agreement for a hotel in Agra.  With the opening of these fine hotels, we will be able to offer our guests the great option of experiencing the famous Golden Triangle with us," said Martin Rinck, president, Asia Pacific, Hilton Worldwide.  "Over the last two months, we entered Trivandrum and Bangalore with the opening of Hilton Garden Inn Trivandrum and DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Bangalore.  With this exciting growth, we currently manage and franchise hotels and resorts in Delhi, Gurgaon, Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai, Trivandrum, Vadodara, Pune, Goa and Shillim."

"We are delighted to enter into an agreement with Hilton Worldwide, a leading global hospitality company, for our foray into the hospitality industry," said Ritesh Derewala, Managing Director, Fruitful Buildcon Private Limited.  "We are also very excited with the opportunity to bring Hilton, the most recognized hotel brand in the world, to our home town."
