FURTHER EXPANSION IN GERMANY FOR HILTON WITH MAJOR CONVERSION OF LUXURIOUS HEIDELBERG HOTEL
Opening next year, Hilton Heidelberg is set to become Hilton’s latest upscale conversion in Germany. The 244-room property, owned by Invesco Real Estate, will undergo a major refurbishment before welcoming guests in Summer 2022.
Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president, development, EMEA, Hilton said, “Hilton Heidelberg is an exciting addition to our growing portfolio in Germany and builds on the significant momentum in conversion demand for our brands. More and more owners are choosing to affiliate with our upscale and collection brands, a testament to the strength of Hilton’s commercial systems and international brand awareness.”
Hans-Peter Hermann, senior director – Hotel Asset Management at Invesco Real Estate adds: “Invesco Real Estate is investing in refurbishing and repositioning the hotel into a market leader benefiting from the Hilton brand.”
Guests to the hotel will be a short walk from Heidelberg’s baroque old town and the historic Heidelberg Castle. Heidelberg University, founded in the fourteenth century and the oldest university in Germany, is three kilometres away. Once refurbished, the hotel will offer 244 stylish guest rooms and suites, as well as a restaurant, bar and executive lounge. Guests will also benefit from access to the hotel’s gym. Meetings and events will be held in the hotel’s seven conference rooms, which will provide more than 550 square metres of modern meeting space.
Hilton’s burgeoning European portfolio will welcome around 40 new hotels this year, including new hotels in Dusseldorf, Stuttgart and Konstanz. Hilton recently opened its first DoubleTree by Hilton hotel in Germany in Frankfurt, and plans to open Wasserturm Hotel Cologne, under Curio Collection by Hilton, in September.
The hotel will be located at Kurfuersten-Anlage 1, Heidelberg, 69115, Germany.
