Hilton is expanding its presence in Spain, after signing a franchise agreement with Urbano Rural Hotelera SL to open its first DoubleTree by Hilton hotel in the country.
Set to convert by the end of the year, DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Spa Emporda will be an upscale, 87-guestroom property located on the site of Emporda Golf Club. The site has two 18-hole golf courses created by Robert von Hagge, and is a five-minute drive to the nearest beach on the Costa Brava.
DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Spa Emporda is located near the city of Girona, the capital of the province of the same name. Transport links from Girona include the International Girona-Costa Brava Airport and Girona Rail Station. Regular trains and buses connect Girona to the Catalan capital city of Barcelona, whose principal airport of El Prat sees 34 million visitors pass through its doors each year.
