Hilton has signed a franchise agreement with Palazzo Caracciolo S.P.A. to open its first hotel in the Southern Italian city of Naples. The Britannique Hotel, located along the distinguished Corso Vittorio Emanuele, will join Curio Collection by Hilton, a global portfolio of more than 50 one-of-a-kind hotels and resorts handpicked for their unique character.
The hotel will be known as The Britannique Naples, Curio Collection by Hilton and will undergo a €25M restoration before welcoming its first guests in the second half of 2019. The restoration will re-establish the property, which first opened in 1870, as a one-of-a-kind destination within the city and revive its glory days as a symbol of 19th century charm. Once the restoration is complete, the hotel will boast 72 guest rooms and a refreshed rooftop restaurant and bar with unrivalled views over the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius.
The Britannique Hotel will be part of Hilton Honors, the award-winning guest-loyalty program for Hilton’s 14 distinct hotel brands. Members who book directly have access to instant benefits, including a flexible payment slider that allows members to choose nearly any combination of Points and money to book a stay, an exclusive member discount, free standard Wi-Fi and the Hilton Honors mobile app.
