Hilton Expands its Lifestyle Category

The future is bright for Hilton’s lifestyle brands as the leading global hospitality company announces 10 new Canopy by Hilton, Tempo by Hilton and Motto by Hilton signings in the United States, Latin America and Europe.

The new signings boost an already impressive development pipeline and continue an era of enormous growth for the design-forward, centrally located hotels that have redefined the traditional hotel stay by delivering a more distinctive and compelling guest experience at a variety of price points. With key signings in Nashville, Sioux Falls, Sao Paulo and Cannes, the pipeline for Hilton’s trio of lifestyle brands is expected to more than double over the next 10 years with expansion into at least 15 new countries and territories.

The latest Canopy by Hilton, Tempo by Hilton and Motto by Hilton signings make up nearly 20% of the category’s total pipeline of 55 hotels, 55% of which are U.S. properties. Internationally, growth is strongest in Europe, with 1,000 anticipated hotel rooms, followed by the Caribbean & Latin America, and Asia-Pacific regions.

"The continued growth of Hilton’s Lifestyle category is a testament to the strength of these brands and the way in which they continue to resonate with guests and owners alike.” said Matthew Schuyler Chief Brand Officer, Hilton.

“We’re excited to expand our Lifestyle footprint in dynamic cities across the globe and welcome a new generation of travelers who appreciates a locally-minded, elevated experience that feels thoughtful and uplifting in service and design”.
