Hilton Is Bringing a New Waldorf Astoria to San Miguel de Allendeby Daniel McCarthy /
Hilton on Thursday announced plans to bring a new Waldorf Astoria to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, a colonial-era city in Mexico’s central highlands.
The hotel, the third Waldorf Astoria in Mexico, is expected to open in early 2024, offering 120 rooms and 24 residences right in the heart of the city, within walking distance to Parroquia de San Miguel Arcángel in the city’s main central plaza.
Plans call for the hotel to include a fitness center with yoga and meditation areas, a destination-inspired spa, a rooftop space with pools, an on-site art gallery along with three restaurants, two bars, and a coffee shop.
“San Miguel de Allende has been recognized as one of the most enchanting cities in the world in recent years, and we are thrilled to marry that appeal with the iconic Waldorf Astoria brand, which is known for its sense of place and community for guests,” said Dino Michael, senior vice president, and global head, luxury brands, Hilton.
“Hilton’s growing luxury portfolio in Mexico, including two Conrad Hotels & Resorts properties and two Waldorf Astoria Resorts, has been met with incredible guest satisfaction, and we look forward to creating even more opportunities for travelers to discover the destination through unforgettable experiences at Waldorf Astoria San Miguel de Allende.”
The new property will add to the big plans Hilton has for the Caribbean and Latin America—the company currently operates 200 hotels throughout the region, with another 100 in the pipeline.
When the new hotel does open, Waldorf Astoria on its own will have more than 30 hotels and 18 residences worldwide.
