LIMA, PERU—The Hilton Lima Miraflores is expected to open later this year; it is the first Hilton Worldwide-managed hotel in Lima.
The hotel, currently under construction, features a design that pays tribute to the country’s history and architecture. The carpets in public areas features a pattern representative of the country’s colonial era and handmade tiles evoke different areas of the city. It offers 207 rooms, including 44 executive rooms, 17 suites and a presidential suite. All guestrooms and corridors feature individually created lattice woodwork.
The property offers more than 12,000 sq. ft. of meeting space including nine meeting rooms, a business center and a nearly 3,700-sq.-ft. ballroom. It also features a rooftop terrace, a heated outdoor swimming pool, two whirlpools and a fitness center by Precor.
