Visitor increase

Hilton now has a total of 16 hotels open or under development in Russia. The most recent additions include Russia's first Hampton by Hilton hotel.

Hilton Worldwide senior vice president of development in Europe and Africa Patrick Fitzgibbon said: "Russia's appointment as host for the 2018 World Cup provides further opportunities for expansion in a country that remains a key focus for our business growth. With forthcoming infrastructure improvements and much needed amendments to visa restrictions, we anticipate further increases in investment and sustained increases in visitor numbers to the country going forward."
