Hilton (NYSE: HLT) today announced an agreement to open Sé Catedral Hotel Porto, Tapestry Collection by Hilton - a unique 77-room property that will bring an exciting new guest experience to Portugal's second-largest city. The hotel is owned by Referência Arrojada SA, a subsidiary of Mercan Group of Companies, and will operate under a franchise agreement with Hilton, with the opening planned for early summer 2021. It will be Portugal's first Tapestry Collection property.

Sé Catedral Hotel Porto, Tapestry Collection by Hilton will join a fast-growing global collection. Every property within the portfolio has its own unique style and personality, which embraces local culture and exploration, all while providing the reassurance associated with the Hilton name, in addition to the benefits of the award-winning Hilton Honors program.

There will be plenty for the hotel's adventure-seeking guests to discover in the local neighbourhood - a UNESCO World Heritage Site steeped in rich heritage with a vibrant nightlife. Some of Porto's main tourist attractions, including the 12th century Sé Cathedral, Clérigos Tower and Livraria Lello, are within 10 minutes' walk away from the hotel. Guests will also enjoy easy access to major transport hubs, including the decorative São Bento Train Station, located a few minutes' walk from the hotel, and Francisco Sá Carneiro International Airport, a 20km drive away.

The hotel will feature an on-site bar and restaurant, as well as nearby parking.

The city of Porto, made famous by the production of Port Wine, continues to be one of the most popular destinations for travellers in Western Europe. A city of thrilling contrasts, it offers both centuries of history as well as an energetic leisure and entertainment scene, framed by the dramatic vistas of its many green spaces.
