|Embassy Suites by Hilton Valencia-Downtown Opens its Doors
MCLEAN, VA – August 10, 2010 – Embassy Suites Hotels today announced the opening of its second location in Venezuela, the Embassy Suites by Hilton Valencia-Downtown. The upscale, all-suites brand, known for its complimentary, cooked-to-order breakfasts and evening Manager’s Reception, also has a location in the country’s capital of Caracas which opened in December 2000. The new property features 203 suites and a prime location in “El Viñedo,” a cosmopolitan area in the heart of the financial and commercial center of North Valencia.
The new hotel joins the brand’s Latin American portfolio, which includes hotels in Bogotá, Colombia; Juan Dolio, Dominican Republic; Mexico City, Mexico; Dorado and San Juan, Puerto Rico; and Caracas.
“We are pleased to showcase the flexibility and value of the Embassy Suites brand to hotel developers in Latin America,” commented Jim Holthouser, global head - Embassy Suites Hotels and Full Service Brands, Hilton Worldwide. “Our portfolio of design options allows developers to choose the prototype that best fits their market, whether urban, secondary or suburban. We will be further strengthening the brand’s presence throughout Latin America, with plans to open hotels in San Jose, Costa Rica, and Panama City, Panama, over the next few years,” Holthouser continued.
Business travelers to Valencia will appreciate the hotel’s close proximity to major corporations, including a number of vehicle, food service and pharmaceutical companies: Goodyear, Bridgestone Firestone, Shell, Novartis, Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, Kraft Foods, and Coca-Cola all have operations in the area.
The hotel’s close location to beautiful beaches and historical and cultural sites will be a huge draw for leisure and business travelers looking for ways to explore the local culture in their down time. Some of the major nearby attractions include the Parque Nacional Morrocoy, Forum de Valencia, Sambil and Metropolis shopping centers and Parque Negra Hipolita.
The Embassy Suites by Hilton Valencia – Downtown is owned and managed by Golden Inn Hotel. Located at the intersection of Av. Monseñor Adam and Av. Andrés Eloy Blanco in El Viñedo, the hotel is a short distance from both downtown Valencia and Arturo Michelena International Airport.
