Hilton Worldwide is opening Poland’s first DoubleTree by Hilton, part of Hilton Worldwide’s upscale brand which features more than 350 hotels globally.
Opening at the site of the Lodz Film Studio, the newly built DoubleTree by Hilton Lodz pays homage to the golden age of Polish cinema. Its towering 8,000 m² glass façade depicts a scene from one of the many Polish film masterpieces to have emanated from Lodz’s famous ‘Dream Factory’ studios. Once inside, guests continue their journey through cinematic history with guest rooms featuring film motifs, whilst its swimming pool forms a visual tribute to the works of Oscar winning director, Roman Polanski.
Simon Vincent, president of EMEA for Hilton Worldwide, said, “Hilton Worldwide has a long history of association with the film industry and DoubleTree by Hilton Lodz builds on this heritage in an important European market. Over the last six years, we have expanded our Polish portfolio with openings in some of the country’s most visited cities including Gdansk, Krakow and Warsaw; with increasing interest in destinations across the country the new hotel in Lodz marks a superb debut for DoubleTree by Hilton.”
