Hilton Worldwide Opens New Hilton Barra Hotel in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil

Hilton Worldwide announced the opening of the new 298-room Hilton Barra hotel in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Developed by Carvalho Hosken S/A, the nine-story Hilton Barra Rio de Janeiro displays a unique visual identity that blends a contemporary architecture and design, with the style and feel of the local Brazilian culture, all while contributing to the reduction of energy and water consumption. Top architects, interior designers and landscape artists played a pivotal role in creating a space where guests are embraced by their surroundings, including their entrance to a lobby of monumental scale with 37 meter height that when illuminated in the evening, acts as a gigantic glass box shining light throughout the property. Local artists contributed with exquisite works, and a key design element present throughout the property -a hollow form -creates a balance between light and the separation of space that allows a consistent flow through all ambiances. An outdoor garden rich in colors and textures completes the exclusive design. Ideal for both business and leisure travelers, the upscale Hilton Barra Rio de Janeiro features 298 guest rooms, including executive floor rooms and suites all outfitted with comfortable and luxurious bedding, smart LED TVs, radio clock with Bluetooth technology, wireless Internet access, Nespresso coffee makers with complimentary capsules and exclusive Malin+Goetz amenities found in no other hotel in the area. Rooms are also equipped with sensors providing an automated system that combines guest comfort with energy efficiency. Guests staying in an executive room or suite enjoy the added benefit of the hotel’s executive floor service and executive lounge, offering light snacks and beverages with spectacular views of the Barra lagoons. The Hilton hotel in Rio de Janeiro provides approximately 14,000 square feet of flexible meeting space including 10 meeting rooms and two ballrooms, with total capacity for up to 950 guests. All rooms feature modern audiovisual equipment, soundproof walls, wireless Internet access and all the amenities and services needed for productive and stress-free event planning, including access to Meetings Simplified – a bundled events program for smaller meetings. Hilton Barra Rio de Janeiro offers a dining experience with a signature restaurant for 140 guests, where the interior connects with the outdoor environment. A breakfast, lunch and dinner menu features culinary specialties and regional fare.
