Hilton is launching two hotels in Portugal under its Curio Collection by Hilton brand. The collection of upper upscale hotels and resorts will be joined by The Emerald House Lisbon, which will open in the Portuguese capital in summer 2020, and Boeira Garden Hotel Porto Gaia in Porto, which has been welcoming guests since December 2019, with the hotel fully operational from spring 2020.
The landmark openings will mark significant milestones for Hilton as it delivers on its global growth goals and expands into key European destinations. Hilton, which currently offers 17 world-class hospitality brands, operates a multi-brand strategy offering choice to investors, owners and guests through its range of hospitality options and brand experiences.
Curio Collection by Hilton hotels and resorts are united in their individuality, with each property carefully selected for its unique character and personality. With a global portfolio of more than 80 one-of-a-kind hotels and resorts, 17 properties currently trading in Europe and a further 19 under development, the collection boasts properties in destinations such as London, Rome and Paris.
Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president, development, EMEA, Hilton said: “We are delivering on our European expansion strategy and pleased to introduce the Curio Collection by Hilton experience to Portugal, which saw foreign visitor numbers increase to nearly three million in 2018, up 7.5% compared to 2017. We are confident that having the choice to stay with Curio Collection will enhance the hospitality markets in both Lisbon and Porto, both exceptional cities that have increasing appeal as a tourist destination.”
The Emerald House Lisbon
Located in the heart of the capital, The Emerald House Lisbon is steps away from many of Lisbon’s top attractions and the historical districts of Chiado and Baixa, known for its vibrant restaurant scene, boutique shops and local culture. The 67-room hotel will offer a fitness centre, restaurant and bar for guests and local residents to enjoy.
The property will open following a multi-million-euro renovation with interiors styled to reflect the city and the hotel’s elegant neighbourhood. The Emerald House Lisbon, Curio Collection by Hilton will be located at Rua das Janelas/Travessa Dom Brás/Rua do Olival.
Boeira Garden Hotel Porto Gaia
Located within three hectares of historic gardens and next to one of Porto’s oldest wineries, the Boeira Garden Hotel Porto Gaia offers an authentic Porto experience. The hotel, which is undergoing a renovation as part of its conversion, will open in two stages.
Since December, the hotel has been offering 44 guest rooms, as well as meeting rooms, a lobby bar and a spa and fitness centre for in-house guests. In spring 2020, a further 80 rooms will open, as well as a restaurant, rooftop bar, Garden rooms for weddings and social events, and a business centre.
External guests can also make use of the spa, fitness centre and swimming pool from spring onwards.
Boeira Garden Hotel Porto Gaia is located at Rua Teixeira Lopes 114, Vila Nova de Gaia.
Hilton has three other hotels in Portugal. The Emerald House Lisbon and Boeira Garden Hotel Porto Gaia will join Conrad Algarve, Hilton Vilamoura As Cascatas Golf Resort & Spa and Double Tree by Hilton Lisbon Fontana Park.
