ROME, and McLEAN, Va. - Hilton (NYSE: HLT) announced the signing of a franchise agreement with G&W Invest Srl to open Cosmopolita Rome, Tapestry Collection by Hilton in Italy’s capital. The new hotel will include 76 stylish guest rooms and will be the first hotel in Italy under Hilton’s newest European brand when it opens early next year.
Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president, development, Europe, Middle East and Africa, Hilton said, “In the coming years, we are due to open eight new hotels in Italy, significantly expanding our footprint in key cities and resorts. Italy, like many of its European neighbours, has a large number of independent hotels that would benefit from visibility from Hilton’s 118 million Hilton Honors members, and as a result we’re seeing growing interest in Hilton’s Collection Brands. We’re looking forward to working with our partners at G&W Invest Srl to welcome guests at our first Tapestry Collection by Hilton in the heart of Rome.”
Walter Pecoraro, owner and CEO of G&W Invest Srl said, “Cosmopolita Rome will be our second hotel in partnership with Hilton and the first in Rome. Having welcomed guests for over a century, we are proud to have owned and managed the hotel for the past 25 of those years. This hotel is the perfect location to open Rome’s first Tapestry Collection by Hilton hotel, and we are confident that now is the right time to build on our relationship with Hilton.”
Once refurbishments are complete, the Cosmopolita Rome will have 76 tastefully decorated rooms, designed to help guests immerse themselves in the architecture of Rome, and will boast a scenic rooftop overlooking the historic city, where guests can enjoy their breakfast surrounded by the stunning architecture. With a newly renovated gym and meeting space for small business meetings, this unique hotel will be the ideal location to explore Rome.
Located in the centre of Rome, guests will be within a 10-minute walk of some of Rome’s most popular sights, including the Pantheon, Trevi Fountain and Colosseum. Rome’s many renowned galleries, museums and landscaped parks make it the perfect destination for international guests looking to explore some of Europe’s most celebrated attractions. By night, guests can explore Rome’s 54 Michelin star restaurants or visit nearby bars and cocktail hotspots.
The new hotel is the latest addition to Tapestry Collection by Hilton, which is expanding rapidly in Europe. The continent’s first Tapestry Collection hotel opened in Spain this year, with four more due to open in France, the UK and Portugal. Known for their vibrant and unique styles, each Tapestry Collection by Hilton hotel encourages guests to immerse themselves in the local area, creating authentic connections with destinations while offering an upscale and comfortable hotel experience.
