Hilton Garden Inn Harlingen Convention Center the First Full Service Convention Center Hotel to Open in the Rio Grande Valley

The Hilton Garden Inn Harlingen Convention Center offers 149 guest rooms/suites connected to the Harlingen Convention Center and convenient access to I-69E.

Harlingen, TX — November 13, 2020 — Hilton Garden Inn Harlingen Convention Center https://www.hilton.com/en/hotels/hrlnogi a 5-story, 149-room state-of-the-art, full-service hotel just minutes from major markets including McAllen, Brownsville, and Mission is the latest addition to the Hilton Garden Inn Group, one of Hilton’s 14 market-leading brands.

Scheduled to open on Friday, November 20th, the modern hotel features soft urban glamour with contemporary touches and captures the spirit of the Rio Grande Valley. The soft blue and grey palate and the tropical-inspired pool are reminiscent of the beaches in the Gulf of Mexico and South Padre Island. Earthy wooden tones in the guestrooms set the stage for travelers to bask in the rich history of the region. Intricate tile throughout the hotel is inspired by Talavera Mexican tile to celebrate the profuse trading history with Mexico. Handcrafted signature cocktails at the Garden Bar will enliven the palate and honor the largest commodity of the region, citrus.

Harlingen’s strategic location within the Rio Grande Valley allows for it to be a hub for distribution, shipping, and healthcare as well as home to many government offices. Due to its warmer temperatures, the Rio Grande Valley is known as the fruit capital of Texas and is well known by birdwatchers worldwide. The location was strategically selected by developers due to the convenient access to all cities within the Rio Grande Valley and direct access to the Harlingen Convention Center. With the public-private partnership among the City of Harlingen, Provident Resources Group Inc., Preston Hollow Capital, and BC Lynd Hospitality, the Hilton Garden Inn Harlingen will be the first attached convention center hotel in the Rio Grande Valley. With the strategic location to Valley International Airport, it will become home to the region’s business travelers, leisure guests, and large conventions.
