Following a record-breaking year of growth, Hilton underscored its commitment to the Caribbean and Latin America during a visit by President and CEO Chris Nassetta in which he met with industry leaders, ownership groups, partners, and team members across Argentina, Peru, Colombia and Costa Rica.

In 2023, Hilton opened nearly 20 new hotels and ended the year with 4,000 rooms added in the market, more than in any other year in the company’s history. Sustained positive momentum is expected as Hilton continues to implement its growth strategy and aggressively expands across the region with the goal of surpassing 300 open hotels in the next three years.
