Hilton is to open its first Doubletree hotel outside the US next October, when the luxury full-service brand comes to Milan, Italy.
”This marks a historic occasion for us at Hilton, with the debut of our first-ever Doubletree by Hilton development in Europe,” said Hilton Hotels Europe president, Wolfgang Neumann.
”As an established and highly popular upscale hotel brand in the United States, this latest Doubletree by Hilton hotel in one of Europe”s finest cities underscores our strategy to integrate our successful Hilton Family of Hotels brands into growth markets throughout Europe.
Located to the northwest of the city, the Doubletree by Hilton Milan is within easy reach of Malpensa International Airport in a business district that is currently undergoing major redevelopment.
Adding to the company”s existing Hilton Milan Hotel in the heart of the city and offering 240 guestrooms, a 225-seat restaurant and covered terrace with capacity for 250, the new hotel aims to cater for business travellers with 450sq m (1,476sq ft) of flexible meeting space and excellent connections to both of Milan”s main trade fair venues.
”The strength and appeal of the Doubletree by Hilton product lies in their versatility,” added Neumann. ”This is enabling us to take advantage of a number of different development opportunities as we look to grow in primary and secondary cities across Italy and respond to the growing demand among corporate and leisure travellers for quality accommodations across Europe.”
Doubletree operates some 175 properties throughout the US and three in Canada, which predominantly cater to the business traveller with high speed internet connection in all rooms, wi-fi access in public areas, a remote wireless printing function allowing guests to print from their laptop direct to a central printer and alarm clocks with MP3 and CD-player connection.
