Venice Hilton set for mid 2007 opening

Molino Stucky Venice hopes to emerge as a premier, top-tier luxury property in one the
world’s main tourist destinations following a 2007 opening.In mid-2007, Hilton Molino Stucky Venice will
debut with previously unseen views of Venice’s islands, a private landing jetty,
rooftop pool and bar, a variety of food and beverage venues, one hotel shop, central
access to Venice’s attractions, and a rich architectural history of its own.

The 380-room hotel has been noted as the most significant architectural project in
Venice in recent years. The project has spanned more than four years, transforming
the 13 buildings of Molino Stucky, a 19th-Century flour mill, into Hilton Molino
Stucky Venice. The mill, Venice’s first neo-gothic revival building, has been
restored without any alterations to its fa├žade or industrial structure. When the
hotel opens, it will mark the first time this unique waterfront landmark has been
occupied in more than 50 years.

The hotel’s waterfront location is on Canale Giudecca, which was once an island
reserved for banished ‘giudicati,’ or noblemen. One of its most famous residents,
Michelangelo, lived there in the 16th Century. The Giudecca are a gondola-shaped
group of islands perfectly positioned to offer the new sweeping views of Venice that
Hilton Molino Stucky Venice will provide.

Hilton Molino Stucky Venice features 380 guest rooms, including 100 executive rooms
and 50 suites. An executive lounge will offer private check-in and check-out and
complimentary breakfast, beverages and refreshments throughout the day.

Hilton Molino Stucky Venice will open with five restaurants and bar venues,
including the Skyline Bar with dramatic views of city. The views are also a backdrop
for the hotel’s rooftop, outdoor swimming pool. Hilton Molino Stucky Venice is also
home to a 6,400-square-foot spa and Turkish bath.


The hotel has its own landing jetty ensuring a quick, easy transport for guests to
Venice’s main attractions. Hilton Molino Stucky Venice is located 10 minutes south
of Piazza San Marco by boat.

Paolo Biscioni, general manager of the Hilton Molino Stucky Venice, commented: “This
is a truly unique architectural project for Venice, and the level of excitement
associated with our opening continues to grow. Building on its long tradition of
hospitality, we are proud that the Hilton flag will shortly be flying over this new
luxury hotel and are confident that it will become an integral part of the tourism
landscape in Venice.”
