The growing business hub of Torreon, Coahuila, will be home to the first Homewood Suites hotel in Mexico. The international brand, by Hilton, features upscale, all-suite, residential-style hotels that cater to both business travelers and tourists alike.

The new five-story property will be located at the growing Intermall Laguna entertainment complex, a 26,000-square-meter facility that features a small amusement park, ice rink, IMAX theater and dozens of retail shops. Torreon, where the complex and Homewood Suites are located, is one of the most important industrial areas in the country, populated by more than 1,500 enterprises in 13 industrial sectors. Near the hotel are 19 universities, professional soccer, baseball and basketball teams and several golf courses.

The new Homewood Suites, a brand launched in 1989, will offer 102 guest suites, including 97 two-room suites, four two-bedroom suites and one Presidential Suite. It will also feature an exercise facility, putting green, outdoor pool with sand and Homewood Suite’s first poolside bar. Additionally, the hotel will continue the traditional homelike amenities of the chain, such as Suite Start breakfast, Welcome Home reception, complimentary grocery shopping and high-speed internet.

With more than 210 hotels open and another 125 in development, Rebecca Wyatt, senior vice president of brand management said, “Homewood Suites by Hilton Torreon is another major development milestone, marking the first of several Homewood Suites properties planned for Mexico, as well as continuing the brand’s movement towards international growth.”
