Hilton Worldwide has inked a deal for three properties in Portuguese capital Lisbon across three different brands.

The management agreement with Feuring Asset Management comprises developing Canopy by Hilton Lisbon Praça Sao Paulo, Duo Hotel Lisbon, Curio Collection by Hilton and Hampton by Hilton Lisbon Baixa.

Canopy debut

The first Canopy by Hilton hotel in Portugal will be located in the heart of central Lisbon, within walking distance from the famous Time Out Market. The property will offer 84 spacious guestrooms featuring Canopy by Hilton’s signature canopy bed frame and amenities including Canopy socks and Nespresso machines.

The hotel’s hub will be complete with a café and bar for guests to work, relax and socialise with friends, and also onsite will be 120 sq m of meeting space, a fully-equipped fitness centre and parking facilities. Canopy by Hilton Lisbon Praça Sao Paulo will open to guests in 2026.

Traditional and new Duo

Set to open in spring 2024, Duo Hotel Lisbon, Curio Collection by Hilton will join Hilton’s portfolio of one-of-a-kind hotels handpicked for their unique character under the Curio Collection by Hilton brand. The property will couple a traditional 19th century building with a secondary new development, linked together by a landscaped interior courtyard.

It will feature 75 guestrooms, an all-day dining outlet, café, bar, meeting space and a Portuguese pasteleria, offering local cakes and pastries. In the evening, the hotel’s restaurant will spill out into the courtyard, allowing guests to enjoy meals al fresco. The site will be located in the bustling west-downtown area of the city, close to many of the key tourist attractions, restaurants and shopping areas.

Hampton entry

Also marking a brand debut in Lisbon, Hampton by Hilton Lisbon Baixa is set to open its doors in 2025. The property will also be located in the centre of Lisbon, minutes away from the key sights.

Encapsulating the line’s modern design, the 157-key property will feature a rooftop space with outdoor pool, a fully-equipped fitness centre, parking facilities and 250 square metres of open-concept social spaces where guests can come together to mingle and relax any time of the day. 

Diversifying portfolio

Commenting on the three new signings, Carlos Miró, MD, development, Spain and Portugal, Hilton, said: “Lisbon is an incredibly exciting destination, with ample opportunity for development, and our increased presence in the capital is key to our wider Portuguese growth.

“In recent years we’ve made great strides to diversify our portfolio, introducing new brands including Hilton Garden Inn, Tapestry Collection by Hilton and Curio Collection by Hilton to the Portuguese market. Now, as we plan to further develop Curio Collection by Hilton in the Iberian Peninsula and introduce Portugal’s first Hampton by Hilton and Canopy by Hilton hotels, we’re excited to serve an even greater range of traveller needs.”

Modern and upscale

Matthias Lowin, managing partner at Feuring Asset Management, added:¨We are delighted to join forces with Hilton to bring three new properties to Lisbon.

“These modern, upscale hotels will serve some of the many visitors to the bustling capital, either those taking in the sights of the beautiful city and surrounding areas or in town on a business trip, and we look forward to welcoming guests with our world-class service and amenities.”

Portuguese pipeline

Hilton currently has nine trading hotels and 11 pipeline hotels in Portugal, with upcoming additions including Legacy Hotel Cascais, Curio Collection by Hilton, DoubleTree by Hilton Lagoa Azores and Hilton Garden Inn Lagos Marina.

The group has opened approximately 20 hotels in Europe this year, with around 200 new hotels planned in the next three – five years.
