Hospitality company Hilton has entered a franchise agreement with Groupe Bertout to open its first property in Monaco, called the Columbus Hotel Monte-Carlo, Curio Collection by Hilton.
Located at 23 Av des Papalins, the hotel is scheduled to be rebranded before the end of 2023.
It will target both leisure and business travellers looking for an authentic Monaco lifestyle experience.
This announcement comes after the company entered a partnership to open a Curio Collection-branded hotel in Melbourne, Australia, last month.
Hilton senior vice-president of development for Europe, the Middle East and Africa Patrick Fitzgibbon said: “The Principality of Monaco is an iconic destination and the Columbus Hotel Monte-Carlo, Curio Collection by Hilton will be an incredible addition to our portfolio marking our first hotel in Monaco.
“Groupe Bertout are incredible partners with a unique vision for this hotel and we’re proud to partner with them on this important project.”
