Hilton has signed 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. Additionally, the hotel 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.
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 commented: “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.”
