Hilton Garden Inn Hotels Offer Travel Agents an Incentive to Book Travel for Themselves: 50% Off Best Available Hotel Rates During 2002

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb. 4, 2002–After planning business and leisure guest itineraries all day long, isn't it about time that travel agents get away from the day-to-day and travel too? Through December 30, 2002, participating Hilton Garden Inn hotels are offering a 50% discount off their best available rates for the day to travel agents so they can experience a Hilton Garden Inn hotel for themselves.
With more than 125 Hilton Garden Inn properties in convenient business city-centers, airport and leisure locations across North America, we felt it was the right time to offer the Hilton Garden Inn experience at a discount for travel agents. We want to show our appreciation for the significant business they book into our hotels, explained Adrian Kurre, senior vice president Hilton Garden Inn Brand Management. We invite travel agents to stay with us for their next personal trip, to experience the friendly service and focused-service amenities that have made Hilton Garden Inn one of the most highly regarded hotel brands in the upper mid-market segment.
Each hotel's standard amenities both in-room and throughout the property, create a home-like environment. Guestrooms feature an in-room hospitality center, with microwave oven, coffee maker and mini-refrigerator. For those travelers who prefer a midnight snack, that's where the Pavilion Pantry(R) comes in. It's a 24-hour mini-market right off the front desk that offers sundries, microwaveable meals and snacks. A casual dining restaurant, guest laundry facility, fitness center and swimming pool round out the services that every Hilton Garden Inn hotel provides.
Hilton Garden Inn developments represent one of the cornerstones of Hilton's franchise growth strategy. More than 225 Hilton Garden Inn properties are currently open or under development in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
