With plans to welcome guests to the largest of Mexico's four "Salamanca" locations, Hilton Garden Inn Salamanca will offer 120 guest rooms, all featuring comfortable beds with fresh, white, cozy duvets and crisp linens to help guests sleep deep.  Rooms will also be outfitted with an ergonomic desk chair and oversized work desk, high-definition flat-screen television, and a "hospitality center" that features a mini refrigerator and coffee maker.
