New Hilton hotel opening near Costa Rica’s Liberia airport

November 14, 2008

A new five-story Hilton Garden Inn will open Dec. 1 near the Daniel Oduber International Airport in Liberia, in the northwestern province of Guanacaste.

It will be the first airport hotel to open, though several others remain under construction, said José Cañas, spokesman for the Hilton Garden Inn.

“The strategic location of our Hilton Garden Inn Liberia Airport is directed to business and pleasure travelers who are looking for quality accommodations,” said Adrian Kurre, senior vice president of the Hilton Corp.

The new Hilton Garden Inn, which cost $19.7 million, will have 169 rooms consisting of standard rooms and eight suites in addition to accessible rooms available for people with disabilities. The hotel will offer an introductory price of $79 a night for rooms of double occupancy.

Although this project would be the fourth Hilton hotel to be built in Costa Rica this year alone, it would be the first Hilton Garden Inn, which offers mid-range prices, in all of Central America.
