Hilton Debuts in Colombia


Hilton opened its 20th property in Colombia, Hilton Bogotá Corferias. The property is the first full-service hotel in the fair and convention district. It offers 410 guestrooms and more than 13,000 square feet of meeting and event space, including the largest terrace event space in the area.

Each guestroom includes floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the city and Monserrate Hill. On-site dining includes three options: OKA Grill House and Four Eleven Bar for authentic Colombian cuisine and Bon Market and Bar for grab-and-go items. The fitness center includes an indoor heated swimming pool, hydro-massage pool and steam bath. If the hotel’s ballroom, breakout rooms and terrace do not provide enough event and meeting space, the hotel is just a short walk from the new Agora Convention Center.

“Colombia’s tourism industry continues to set records with a 9 percent growth in visitor arrivals last year, maintaining a positive year over year momentum,” said Jorge Giannattasio, senior vice president and head of operations, Caribbean and Latin America, Hilton. “The market’s consistent growth paves the way for further tourism development and we are proud to play a significant role in this boom with the opening of our 20th hotel in the destination — Hilton Bogottá Corferias. Hilton has been welcoming guests for nearly 100 years and we are thrilled to continue extending our mission to be the world’s most hospitable company throughout this incredible country.”

“Transformed into a global business hub, Bogota has been a key market in our brand’s expansion plans due to the rise in tourism,” added Vera Manoukian, senior vice president and global head, Hilton Hotels & Resorts. “With the debut of Hilton Bogotá Corferias as the Fairs & Conventions district’s first full-service hotel, our goal is to introduce guests to the brand’s intuitive service and world-class amenities while providing them with a memorable travel experience.”
