Hilton Hotels & Resorts selected San Francisco as the location for the global launch of Hilton Huanying as the city has long been recognized as a leading global destination for Chinese travelers and is home to one of the largest Chinese communities in the U.S. San Francisco sees a significant number of Chinese travelers to the U.S. annually, and the exponential growth of the Chinese tourism segment is projected to make a significant impact on San Francisco’s economy over the next few years. Four Bay Area properties are currently enrolled in Hilton Huanying, including: Hilton San Francisco Financial District, Hilton San Francisco Union Square, Hilton San Francisco Airport Bayfront and Hilton Santa Clara.

“As the gateway to the Pacific, receiving hundreds of thousands of Chinese visitors annually, San Francisco is honored to be at the center of the launch for Hilton Huanying,” said San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee. “The Hilton Huanying program will bring tourists from Asia to showcase our world class city and support tourism, jobs and the local economy.”
