Hanoi (VNA) - Hotel chain Hilton and Vietnam’s BRG Group Jsc recently signed two hotel management agreements in Ho Chi Minh City and Vung Tau city.

The two new facilities are branded Hilton Garden Inn and DoubleTree by Hilton, respectively.

With these additions, Hilton now has 11 hotels in operation or under construction in Vietnam, eight of which are owned by the BRG Group.

Guy Phillips, Senior Vice President Development - Asia & Australasia at Hilton Worldwide, stated that both hotels should play an important role in marking the continued expansion of the Hilton chain in Vietnam.

In the past three months, the company has signed three hotel management contracts in Vietnam, showing the country’s potential for hotel business development.

Nguyen Thi Nga, Chairwoman of BRG Group, agreed with Phillips, saying that both the DoubleTree by Hilton in Vung Tau city and the Hilton Garden Inn in HCM City are the result of a long-term partnership between the two companies.

She hoped that the new hotels entering the market would attract a large number of domestic and foreign tourists to Vietnam.

The Hilton Garden Inn is situated in District 1, HCM City, where most of the administrative offices, embassies and multinational companies are located.

The DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Vung Tau city is located in the heart of an already popular tourist destination with coastal stretches and natural hot springs.

By initial estimation, the two hotels will officially open in the first quarter of 2022.

The agreements between Hilton Worldwide Holdings Inc. and BRG Group were signed during a visit to Vietnam by the former’s representative during the 2017 Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Economic Leaders’ Week in the central city of Da Nang from November 6-11.-VNA
