Hilton will open its first property in the northern French city of Lille in 2024, following a fully rebranding under Hilton Hotels & Resorts.
The former Crowne Plaza Lille Euralille will becoming the Hilton Lille in summer 2024 following renovations. Located in the city centre, it is a perfect spot for the first opening of a Hilton hotel in this area.
The 124-guest-room Hilton Lille will feature Europa, the hotel’s restaurant complete with mezzanine seating area, the COOPER bar, and a fully-equipped fitness centre. The hotel will also include a new executive lounge area, and 360 square meters of meeting space set across seven meeting rooms.
Furthermore, the property is located next to Gare de Lille-Europe, with its Eurostar and TGV connections, appealing to both business and leisure travellers, notably from Amsterdam, London and Brussels.
Hilton’s portfolio in France is on a steep growth trajectory, and we now have more than 45 hotels trading or under development. This growth is fuelled by demand for our brands, allowing us to develop our portfolio of properties in a number of important destinations. Lille is a thriving market, and Hilton Lille will be an exciting arrival when it welcomes guests next year.
