Hilton Worldwide announced the signing of a management agreement with the Swaziland Public Service Pensions Fund to open a Hilton Garden Inn hotel in Mbabane, Swaziland. The new build 130 guest room hotel will be located in the centre of Mbabane, the adminstrative capital and largest city in Swaziland. Located on Mhlambanyatsi Road, the main arterial route serving the city centre, the hotel will be situated in the CBD and ideally positioned for local and international travellers. The hotel will also feature some 245 square meters of dedicated event space with 105 square meters of pre-function space, as well as a large fitness centre and outdoor swimming pool.

"It is always exciting to have an opportunity to bring our brands into a country for the first time, and we are delighted to be introducing Hilton Garden Inn to Swaziland," said Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president of development, Europe and Africa, for Hilton Worldwide. "Globally, Hilton Worldwide welcomed more guests than any other hospitality company in the first quarter of 2015 - and with our portfolio fast approaching 20,000* rooms in Africa - growth is being realized across the continent as we welcome more and more guests to our hotels."
