MCLEAN, Va. -- With the New Year on the horizon, Hilton Garden Inn is wrapping up 2017 with gusto. The award-winning, upscale brand from Hilton (NYSE: HLT) will end 2017 with more than 750 hotels worldwide, with properties in 35 countries and territories. Six of those openings, in four countries, have occurred in the past month, including: Hilton Garden Inn Newtown Square Radnor, Hilton Garden Inn Boulder, Hilton Garden Inn Edmond/Oklahoma City North, Hilton Garden Inn Kuala Lumpur Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman North in Malaysia, Hilton Garden Inn Aguascalientes in Mexico, and Hilton Garden Inn Lucknow in India.
