Annexum recently acquired the two properties on the city’s Leuvehaven waterfront, and they shall continue trading as Hilton-affiliated hotels during the renovation period. They will join Hilton’s portfolio of 15 trading properties in the Netherlands.
Hilton has a proud legacy in Netherlands dating back more than 60 years, and we’re actively growing our portfolio to cater to customer demand, with 18 hotels now trading or under development. Rotterdam is a dynamic city with a vibrant cultural scene, and the arrival of Curio Collection by Hilton and DoubleTree by Hilton will add to its appeal as a destination. With this partnership with Annexum, we will enhance Hilton’s presence in Rotterdam, serving an even greater variety of traveller needs.
Patrick Fitzgibbon, Senior Vice-President, Development, Europe, Middle East and Africa at Hilton
Rotterdam’s popularity with business and leisure travellers is only getting stronger and, in partnership with Hilton, we’re confident these hotels, that we have just acquired, will be hugely popular with guests. Their superior location in central Rotterdam makes the properties ideal for conversion and we couldn’t be more pleased to elevate their offering with the DoubleTree by Hilton and Curio Collection by Hilton brands. We’re looking forward to welcoming guests to these fantastic hotels following their renovations.
