DoubleTree by Hilton Moors Up to the Italian Port of Trieste
December 05, 2019 // Franchising.com // LONDON - Tucked beside the Slovenian border on the coast of the Adriatic Sea is the northeastern Italian city of Trieste, where the restored 20th century palazzo that is DoubleTree by Hilton Trieste has opened its doors.
Boasting original architectural features from the late European Eclectic period, the hotel is protected by the Italian Cultural Heritage department. Additionally, throughout DoubleTree by Hilton Trieste, guests will find an array of unique décor, including a monumental fountain, statues, restored fireplaces, stained-glass windows and mosaics.
More so, the hotel features 100 comfortable guest rooms, all of which spaciously present a walk-in shower and include complimentary Wi-Fi, tea- and coffee-making facilities and an HDTV. Additionally, there are 25 suites that offer further space, a separate living area and, in some, restored historic pieces - truly underlining the building’s unique heritage.
The history of Trieste has been influenced by its location at the crossroads of Latin, Slavic and Germanic cultures, producing a unique Triestine cuisine. This is authentically brought to life in the hotel’s café and bar, Berlam Coffee Tea & Cocktail Bar, marking the perfect place to indulge in a menu of elegant cocktails, craft beers, Italian coffee, traditional pastries, small plates of Cicchetti and sharing platters.
Alongside this, the main restaurant, Novecento Restaurant Trieste, allows guests to savour innovative yet traditional dishes. From sea bass paired with corn cream and artichoke and octopus with tomato confit and red onion to tortelli of faraona topped with hazelnuts and Parmesan cheese, all dishes can be expertly matched with locally sourced wines.
“Trieste is a city presenting historical and architectural splendour and will be home to Italy’s fifth DoubleTree by Hilton,” said Simon Vincent, President, EMEA Hilton. “Boasting early 20th century characteristics against dramatic bay views, it is no surprise that Trieste continues to grow as a popular destination.”
“As DoubleTree by Hilton celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, we are excited to welcome the brand’s renowned hospitality to the charming city of Trieste - bringing to life new opportunities and a destination for travellers and the people of Italy alike,” said Tito Di Benedetto, general manager, DoubleTree by Hilton Trieste. “Guests will be welcomed with our signature, warm DoubleTree chocolate chip cookie, exemplary facilities and our caring service.”
“We are very satisfied to see this ambitious project, which we believed in from the start, become a reality,” commented Luca Boccato, CEO of HNH Hospitality, which runs the structure. “For us Trieste is a strategic city with both business and leisure demand and great growth potential. We cannot wait to offer our hospitality to its citizens and visitors. In this sense, the DoubleTree by Hilton brand will be a guarantee of quality and a clear reference for international guests, increasingly present in the city.”
DoubleTree by Hilton Trieste is set within the narrow, paved streets of Old Town, which is lined with tall, sorbet-coloured buildings. The Allianz Group, owner of the historic building, fully refurbished it. The hotel is also the perfect base to explore one of Europe’s largest synagogues, the ancient Riccardo Arch, which is said to have been built in 33 B.C., or to taste the finest coffee in Italy from one of many Viennese-style coffeehouses.
Keeping in mind the Italian Eclectic and Renaissance architectural styles, the hotel offers six meeting rooms that span a total of 299 square meters - making the hotel’s meetings and events space excellent for any conferences, weddings or cocktail receptions. All meetings and events rooms also allow natural daylight and feature floor-to-ceiling windows.
