Hilton has launched its Home2 Suites by Hilton brand in Asia Pacific, the global hospitality company’s 12th in the region.

The company says Home2 Suites caters to the extended-stay market, as travellers increasingly seek travel and living experiences.

The first property, Home2 Suites by Hilton Shenzhen Bao’an, is located in the heart of the Bao’an district in Shenzhen, China, with convenient access to major transportation hubs.

“Having just opened our 500th hotel in Asia Pacific, we are thrilled to introduce this award-winning brand that builds on our position as the region’s fastest-growing global hospitality company,” said Hilton’s President of Asia Pacific, Alan Watts.

“China is a strategic growth market for us, and with the robust demand for upper midscale hotels across the country, the launch of Home2 Suites by Hilton demonstrates our resilience and our commitment in introducing the right brands to meet our guests’ expectations.

“We look forward to working closely with our partners at Funyard to realize our shared vision of providing travelers an extended-stay experience backed by Hilton in top-tier and emerging cities in China in the coming years.”

He said Home2 Suites is a dynamic brand that offers savvy travellers the freedom to maintain their lifestyles while travelling, with an innovative extended-stay concept that features stylish accommodation with flexible room configurations and home-like amenities at a great value.
