Yerevan, the capital of Armenia, will soon be home to a world-famous Hilton Hotel – one of an international chain of full-service hotels and resorts owned by the Hilton Hotels Corporation. As of 2008, there were 533 Hilton-branded hotels across the world. The 534th will be constructed in Yerevan.
“Hilton Garden Inn, a three-star hotel and an exhibition center will cover two hectares of land and will have 202 hotel and 40 apartment rooms. The cost of the rooms will vary between US$150-200 during [the] high season and US$120-150 during [the] off season,” said a California-based Armenian businessman Gary Bedian, the founder and president of Bedian International Company, who will be in charge of the Hilton Garden Inn construction work in Armenia.
The construction of the hotel and exhibition center will start next year and will last 3 years. The hotel will be located on the main highway to Yerevan’s Zvartnots international airport.
Attracting a prestigious global brand like Hilton Garden Inn to Armenia only adds testimony to the increasing interest in Armenia as a tourism destination. This new hotel and exhibition center will create a highly-visible gateway to Armenia with international conferences, meetings, incentives, and events.
