MCLEAN, Va. - From America's largest city, to one of Texas' liveliest destinations, and across the desert Southwest, travelers throughout the U.S. have a variety of new lodging options debuting just in time for the busy holiday travel season, thanks to several new Hilton Garden Inn openings.

In 2016, 150 million Americans traveled over the Thanksgiving and year-end holiday seasons*, and many travel experts predict that number will rise even more this year. Hilton Garden Inn offers these travelers upscale yet affordable accommodations no matter where their holiday travel takes them.

"Our Hilton Garden Inn guests deserve to enjoy each and every moment of their stay, whether that be with a handcrafted cocktail from the bar or warm smile from one of our dedicated Team Members," said John Greenleaf, global head, Hilton Garden Inn. "Now, more travelers have the opportunity to enjoy the bright and satisfying hospitality experience we take such great pride in offering -- throughout the holidays, and every day."

Part of the Hilton (NYSE: HLT) family of hotels, Hilton Garden Inn announces seven new U.S. properties in October and early November, with three of the hotels debuting in locations named by Travel + Leisure magazine's Top 25 List of Best Places for Winter Travel:

Iconic & Cosmopolitan: New York City
Hilton Garden Inn Times Square South is in the heart of a city known for its vibrant holiday displays and tree lightings. The hotel is just a short stroll to holiday ice-skating at the iconic Rockefeller Center and walking distance from The Bryant Park Winter Village, featuring a holiday market with more than 125 shopping kiosks and local food vendors.

A Desert Oasis: Phoenix
Hilton Garden Inn Phoenix-Tempe ASU Research Park is close to the holiday magic of the expansive outdoor Tempe Marketplace, featuring 100 shops and restaurants. Other not-to-miss holiday hotspots near the hotel include the annual Las Noches de las Luminarias festival at the Desert Botanical Gardens and Zoolights at the Phoenix Zoo.

Deep in the Heart of Texas: Austin
Hilton Garden Inn Austin Airport is just five miles from the heart of downtown Austin and near the best holiday festivities Hill Country offers. This includes the popular Austin Trail of Lights in Zilker Park and the Armadillo Christmas Bazaar - an art fair and music festival with an exciting community feeling.

Additional recent Hilton Garden Inn openings include these U.S. and international destinations:

Each of these new hotels features the brand's inviting food and beverage options, which address consumers' changing dining preferences with healthier and more on-trend menu choices, small plates, premium varietal wines, national and local craft beers, and handcrafted cocktails**.

Now with more than 760 hotels worldwide, Hilton Garden Inn offers business, leisure and holiday travelers the "Simple Things on Another Level" that its millions of guests expect and appreciate - including light and airy properties, award-winning food and beverage selections, and comfortable amenities that make any stay a delight.
