New Hilton to Open in Bratislava, Slovakia

February 25, 2011 By: Jena Tesse Fox

In another sign of the growing popularity of Central (or Eastern) Europe as a destination, Hilton Worldwide will be signing a franchise license agreement with Tehelne Pole a.s for a DoubleTree by Hilton hotel in Bratislava, Slovakia. The newly-built property, already under development, is anticipated to open in Q2, 2011 and will be the second Hilton Worldwide property in the country.

The 120-guestroom DoubleTree by Hilton Bratislava will be located in the commercial district of the capital city. The hotel will be close to the city center and adjacent to the city’s new, multi-functional 9,000-capacity event center—a key venue for the Ice Hockey World Championship in Bratislava and Kosice in April and May. The event center will also be home to the local ice hockey team.

DoubleTree by Hilton Bratislava will join DoubleTree by Hilton Kosice, which has been operating in Slovakia since early 2009.

Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president, development, Hilton Worldwide in Europe and Africa, said, “Our growing presence in Slovakia demonstrates the increasing demand by investors and guests for the Hilton Worldwide portfolio of brands, particularly in Eastern Europe and in capital city locations.”

Hilton Worldwide continues to grow its presence in Eastern Europe, with development resources dedicated to countries in the region including Romania, Hungary, Turkey and Russia. Slovakia has reportedly attracted the interest of Hilton Worldwide due to its strong business and leisure demand in both city locations and resort destinations.
