A gathering of original, upscale hotels, offering travelers
independent hotel experiences combined with value and reliability

MCLEAN, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Hilton (NYSE: HLT) today announced the launch of a vibrant new brand
that offers guests a refreshing choice for an independent hotel stay: Tapestry
Collection by Hilton
. Tapestry Collection by Hilton marks the 14th
brand and second collection brand
for Hilton, the world’s
fastest-growing hospitality company
on an organic net unit growth
percentage basis.


Tapestry Collection by Hilton was curated due to customer and owner
demand for original upscale hotels that cater to guests seeking
reliability and value in their independent hotel choices. Each hotel
will maintain its individual spirit, offering guests an experience that
is approachable and familiar as well as different from other hotels. In
addition, each stay is backed by the reassurance of the Hilton name as
well as its unmatched commercial engine and award-winning Hilton HHonors
program.

The launch of Tapestry Collection by Hilton extends Hilton’s proven
growth strategy, which focuses on developing clearly-defined brands
organically to grow our global footprint, create more hotel options for
existing guests and attract new guests,” said Christopher J. Nassetta,
president and CEO, Hilton. “Tapestry Collection by Hilton will enable us
to provide the best of both worlds to travelers who are looking for an
independent hotel experience but also want the consistency and
reassurance they expect from Hilton.”

Seven hotels have signed letters of intent with the collection in the
following cities: Syracuse, N.Y.; Chicago, Ill.; Nashville, Tenn.;
Warren, N.J.; Hampton, Va., and two in Indianapolis, Ind. The collection
has an additional 35 deals in process, with the first property expected
to convert to Tapestry Collection by Q3 2017. Further additions to the
collection will be announced in the coming months.

The Tapestry Collection by Hilton is positioned in the upscale segment
just below Curio – A Collection by Hilton, which has been highly
successful since launching in 2014. Curio today operates more than 30
upper upscale hotels in seven countries with another 45 in the global
development pipeline.

According to Bobby Bowers, Senior Vice President, Operations, for
industry research firm STR, the supply of independent properties in the
upscale market is estimated to be more than 15,000 hotels globally.
Considering the size of the market, Tapestry Collection by Hilton
should find ample opportunity for conversions well into the future,”
Bowers said. “This move is consistent with Hilton’s strategy of creating
and developing original brands that fuel organic growth.”

Hilton’s Organic Growth Strategy

While numerous brands compete in the luxury and upper upscale segments,
Hilton’s extensive consumer feedback and competitive data analysis have
revealed a white space opportunity in the upscale market segment,
especially for a collection brand.

Hilton has launched several brands in the past decade including Home2
Suites by Hilton in 2009, Curio – A Collection by Hilton in 2014, Canopy
by Hilton in 2014 and Tru by Hilton in 2016. Combined, they have added
20,000 rooms to the Hilton footprint, with another 66,000 in the
pipeline.

With Tapestry Collection by Hilton we are responding to our guests’ and
owners’ desire for a compelling new choice for an upscale collection
brand,” said Mark Nogal, global head, Curio – A Collection by Hilton and
Tapestry Collection by Hilton. “A ‘tapestry’ is a one-of-a-kind, woven
piece of art, making it the ideal name for our new collection of hotels
that are dedicated to being different.”

Tapestry Collection by Hilton guests will be able to benefit from Hilton
HHonors, the award-winning guest-loyalty program for Hilton’s 14
distinct hotel brands that serve an ever-growing footprint of 60 million
members in 104 countries. Hilton HHonors members who book directly with
Hilton save time and money and gain instant access to the benefits they

industry-leading Hilton HHonors mobile app.
