(October 24, 2005 - Burbank, CA) – Warner Bros. Consumer Products (WBCP) and Hilton Buenos Aires, the contemporary five-star hotel in Puerto Madero Argentina, announced today that they are teaming up to create several themed rooms inspired by such iconic and beloved characters as Scooby-Doo, Looney Tunes, Baby Looney Tunes, Tom and Jerry, and the Dark Knight himself, Batman. Fans of these much-loved properties will be enchanted by their favorite characters while also enjoying the accommodations of a five star hotel. These characters will inspire several elements of the fine accommodations at the Hilton Buenos Aires, including the design and the ambiance. For approximately $140 USD, guests will be able to stay in one of these character themed rooms; kids will enjoy the fun amenities, while their parents relax close by in an adjoining luxury room. “We are pleased to partner with Hilton Buenos Aires on this unique project,” said Jordan Sollitto, Executive Vice President, Worldwide Marketing and International Licensing, Warner Bros. Consumer Products. “This partnership fits well into our overall strategy of bringing entertainment to families across the globe in a wide variety of ways.” Patricio Alvarez, General Manager, Hilton Buenos Aires adds, “Teaming up with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, a company so well established in the entertainment industry, is an excellent way for us to continue offering our guests fun and innovative options during their stay at our hotels.” The first themed room to open in the Hilton Buenos Aires is based on everyone’s favorite Caped Crusader, the mysterious and revered Batman. Transformed into a Batcave for kids, the room is connected to a regular deluxe room for their parents. Decorated with Batman sheets, towels, posters, toys, pictures, comics, and other accessories, the Batcave is the perfect place for kids to have the experience of a lifetime. To further delight kids and parents, this unique experience will not end at checkout and will continue even beyond their stay. During checkout, children will be given a surprise gift and a Batman certificate to help remember their stay at the Batcave. In addition to the Batcave, there will be a special Batman-themed menu available for guests at the Hilton Buenos Aires El Faro restaurant. The Batcave is now open for business. About Warner Bros.
