All Suites Brands by Hilton Close Year with 30th Canadian Hotel Opening and Nearly 600 Properties in the Pipeline Worldwide

Brand Category Reached 1,000th Property
Milestone in 2018

MCLEAN, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–For the All Suites brands by Hilton, consisting of Embassy Suites by
Hilton, Homewood Suites by Hilton, and Home2 Suites by Hilton, 2018 was
a successful year marked by growth domestically and abroad. All three
brands achieved major milestones, including the opening of the
category’s 30th Canadian property and 1,000th
property overall.

The All Suites brands will continue their international expansion
throughout 2019, with more than 25 properties in the pipeline throughout
the Americas and Asia, and more than 580 properties in the pipeline in
total. All three brands are focused on growing their presence in Canada,
with Homewood Suites by Hilton continuing its dedicated effort in Latin
America and Embassy Suites by Hilton making forays in the Middle East.

Last year, the All Suites brands made significant headway in Canada,
tapping into the country’s record-setting tourism boom. In addition to
reaching 30 opened All Suites hotels, the stage has already been set for
future growth as over 20% of all Hilton properties in the Canadian
pipeline are in the All Suites category.

“The All Suites brands by Hilton had a banner year in 2018 thanks to the
incredible support we received from both team members and owners,” said
Dianna Vaughan, global head and senior vice president, All Suites brands
by Hilton. “From the opening of the category’s 1,000th
property and international expansion, to taking part in unique projects
like Hilton’s first tri-branded property and Home2 Suites by Hilton’s
first modular build hotel, collaboration with our owners and teams was
and will continue to be the secret to our success as we capitalize on
opportunities this year.”

Brand Achievements and Upcoming Milestones

In addition to the All Suites brands collective accomplishments, each
individual brand reached notable milestones in 2018, executing ambitious
initiatives ranging from state-of-the-art construction techniques to
operational enhancements.

Embassy Suites by Hilton:

  • Embassy Suites by Hilton is in the midst of a brand renaissance as it
    adapts to meet the changing needs of today’s travelers. Last year, the
    brand successfully completed its 100th Atrium Refresh
    renovation, an innovative program aimed at driving new revenue
    opportunities and transforming Embassy Suites by Hilton’s signature,
    open-air atriums into intimate social lobbies. As part of these design
    initiatives the brand opened the 17th of its new dining
    concepts– E’Terie Bar & Grill, a fast-casual dining concept with a
    menu of light bites, and Brickstones Kitchen & Bar, a contemporary
    full-service restaurant.

Homewood Suites by Hilton:

  • Last year, Homewood Suites by Hilton continued to grow its
    international footprint throughout the Americas with property openings
    in Mexico and Canada. In 2018, more than 50 hotels participated in the
    brand’s Take Flight design program to retrofit legacy properties with
    updated public spaces, bringing the total number of properties that
    have participated in the design initiative to over 250. In addition to
    the shared space improvements, the suite portion of the Take Flight
    program will be completed by the end of 2020. Looking ahead to 2019,
    the brand is ready to celebrate its 30th anniversary and
    thirty years of being an extended-stay favorite amongst owners.

Home2 Suites by Hilton:

  • Home2 Suites by Hilton made major strides last year with 86 property
    openings throughout North America. Innovative development tactics
    played a key role in the brand’s growth strategy and reaching
    milestones such as the staging of Home2 Suites by Hilton’s first-ever
    modular build and the opening of Hilton’s first-ever tri-brand.
