Hilton opens second Italy hotel

Hilton Portorosa, the only five star leisure and conference hotel in the north east region of the legendary island of Sicily, opened its doors, becoming the second Hilton hotel in Sicily and the second Hilton Worldwide Resort in Italy. The nine-storey new hotel is framed by a private sandy beach on one side and Sicily’s premier tourist port, the Portorosa Marina, on the other. The 263-room hotel boasts one of the largest conference facilities in Sicily.

Welcoming the new addition to the Hilton family, President for Hilton Hotels Europe, Mr Wolfgang M. Neumann said, “This is an important hotel for us. Hilton Portorosa provides yet another exciting step in a growing network of 11 Hilton family of brand hotels in this country and it signals our second Hilton in Sicily, a destination that is fast becoming the newest getaway for seasoned travellers to Europe.”

Hotel General Manager, Luigi Sorge, adds that Sicilian hospitality combined with the power of the Hilton brand will attract new travellers to the corner of the island. “This is the real Sicily. The hotel’s proximity to Mount Etna, the Aeolian Islands, the Sanctuary, the Greek Theatre of Tindari and Taormina makes it a destination where culture and work can go hand in hand with fun and relaxation. Portorosa is an ideal alternative for the Riviera and the Amalfi coast.”
