Hilton Expands Further In Italy With Signing Of Hilton Garden Inn Venice
Hilton Worldwide has today announced the signing of a franchise agreement with VENEZIA CAPITOL Srl to open a Hilton Garden Inn hotel in Venice, Italy. Scheduled to open by summer 2010, the Hilton Garden Inn Venice/ Mestre San Giuliano will be a welcome addition to Venice Mestre, providing quality branded hotel accommodation and a second hotel for Hilton Worldwide, in this landmark European city.
When it opens, the Hilton Garden Inn Venice / Mestre San Giuliano will offer 136 bedrooms, all featuring the brand’s key signature offerings, including, the Garden Sleep System® bed, ergonomic Mirra® chair by Herman Miller, a 24-hour business centre and complimentary high speed Wi-Fi Internet access. A stylish lobby and reception area will feature a lounge area and bar, as well as the Hilton Garden Inn 24-hour Pavilion Pantry® which provides a selection of food and beverage options. A contemporary restaurant will also offer made-to-order breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as evening room service. The Hilton Garden Inn Venice / Mestre San Giuliano will have two flexible meetings rooms and 24 hour business centre facilities, an outdoor swimming pool and fitness facilities – appealing to both business and leisure guests.
The signing of the Hilton Garden Inn Venice / Mestre San Giuliano marks Hilton’s continued growth in Italy, with 16 hotels already open, ranging from the ultra luxurious Waldorf Astoria Collection brand, to the full service Doubletree by Hilton brand and the mid-market Hilton Garden Inn.
With a history spanning over 1500 years, Venice is an internationally renowned centre of history, culture and magnificent beauty. Venice is also a significant business destination and is one of the most economically vibrant cities in Italy. The new Hilton Garden Inn Venice / Mestre San Giuliano is well located for easy access to the famous Venice lagoon, and for the commercial and business districts of the city. The hotel will provide a quality mid-market hotel option for leisure visitors looking for good value during their trip to Venice and for business visitors demanding close proximity to the commercial areas of the Venetian mainland.
The Hilton Garden Inn Venice / Mestre San Giuliano will be conveniently located in the Mestre area of Venice, near the Park of San Giuliano and overlooking the main SS14 road which connects the airport with the city centre. The hotel will be located 4 miles from the recently renovated Marco Polo International Airport, which is fast becoming a major gateway to South East Europe, and 6 miles from Piazzle Roma – where the water taxis depart for Venice lagoon.
Adrian Kurre, Senior Vice President for the Hilton Garden Inn brand, said: “We are delighted to be signing our first hotel in Venice, and our ninth Hilton Garden Inn brand hotel in Italy; we firmly believe that we can continue to establish this brand as the leading mid-market hotel choice for both domestic and international travellers in Italy.”
