Further expansion in Poland has been announced by the Hilton Worldwide group with two new Hampton by Hilton hotels scheduled to open in Gdansk and Lubin in 2017 and the arrival of a DoubleTree by Hilton property in Wroclaw. They join more than 20 Hilton properties trading or under development throughout Poland.
Regional senior vice-president Patrick Fitzgibbon said: “Travel is one of the fastest-growing contributors to Poland's economy, and is forecast to generate nearly US$5bn per year by 2025.
“Hilton's focused service portfolio in Central Europe continues to play a key role in attracting international business and leisure travellers.”
The Lublin hotel will have 121 guestrooms and will be Hilton's first in the city, an important commercial hub which next year is celebrating the 700th anniversary of its foundation.
Offering 100 guestrooms, Hampton by Hilton Gdansk Oliwa will join two existing Hilton Worldwide properties in the city, with a further example of the brand currently under construction in Gdansk main town.
The DoubleTree property near Slowacki Park in Wroclaw has 189 guestrooms and with facilities including a contemporary Executive Lounge will be aimed at corporate travellers.
