H.n.h. Hotels and Resorts opens the first DoubleTree by Hilton in Rome

In 2019, the DoubleTree by Hilton Roma Monti will be the brand’s first hotel in the city

H.n.h. Hotels and Resorts and Hilton announced the signing of a franchising agreement for the opening of the DoubleTree by Hilton Roma Monti, a newly built Upscale Hotel located in Piazza dell'Esquilino, in the Monti district.

For H.n.h. Hotels and Resorts, one of the leading independent Italian operators in the Hospitality industry, this will be the second franchising agreement with Hilton following the opening of the DoubleTree by Hilton in Trieste.

Reale Immobili S.p.A., owner of the property, has already set up the construction site for the renovation and restructuring of the facility, to allow for the opening scheduled for the second half of 2019.

132 rooms, a restaurant on the ground floor, a multi-purpose conference space and a large bar-restaurant on the top floor, with spectacular views of the city’s skyline.

THDP studio, a London-based firm with international roots, has been appointed interior designer for the refurbishment project, which involves complete redesigning of the interiors and of the entryways, as a way of creating evocative communication gaps between the Hotel and the views of Piazza dell'Esquilino and Via Urbana.

The concept aims to create a narrative inspired by the micro locality of the Monti district, with artisanal shops and monumental glimpses towards the Colosseum. The project intention envisages a dialogue with the city through the creation of catering services, in addition to common spaces for meetings, work and social interactions both indoors and outdoors. A large sky lounge on the eighth floor will create a perspective dimension of the Piazza di Santa Maria Maggiore.

Luca Boccato, CEO of H.n.h. Hotels & Resorts SpA, says: "DoubleTree by Hilton Roma Monti is our second DoubleTree by Hilton brand affiliation in Italy following the one in Trieste, in Piazza della Repubblica We strongly believe in the value of working alongside an international brand such as Hilton. DoubleTree by Hilton's identity, standards and values blend perfectly with the project and our management philosophy. "

"We are fully satisfied with this real estate development and partnership operation between H.n.h. Hotels and Resorts and a leading global brand such as Hilton - says Alberto Ramella, General Manager of Reale Immobili –For Reale Immobili, contributing to the restructuring and reconversion of this building into a prestigious hotel, which stands in a strategic location, means becoming one of the key players in a profound transformation capable of generating a significant impact on the urban economic context and of strengthening its position in the capital's hospitality industry ".

This opening in the capital is an important milestone for Hilton, too. Patrick Fitzgibbon, Senior Vice President of Development EMEA emphasizes:

“Rome’s enduring appeal saw it welcome 11 million visitors in the first nine months of 2017, this hotel, and our first DoubleTree by Hilton hotel in the Eternal City, is a welcome addition to our growing Italian portfolio.
