Hilton Worldwide and Schiphol Group’s real estate subsidiary Schiphol Real Estate have signed an agreement to introduce a new Hilton Hotels & Resorts hotel to Amsterdam Airport Schiphol in the Netherlands.

Construction of the new 433-room Hilton Amsterdam Airport Schiphol will start later in 2012.

The hotel is expected to open in 2015 and will replace the current Hilton property at the airport; Hilton said it would manage the facilities at the new Hilton Hotels & Resorts hotel.

The facilities will include a ballroom and 23 meeting rooms, a restaurant and a bar, a spa and fitness centre, a lobby, underground parking with 138 parking spaces and an atrium with a 35m high glass ceiling that will form the heart of the hotel and meeting area.

Hilton Worldwide senior vice president development, Europe & Africa Patrick Fitzgibbon said the company recently announced the introduction of three further brands to the Netherlands.

The hotel will join the recently opened Hilton Frankfurt Airport and Hilton London Heathrow Airport Terminal 5 as the latest addition to Hilton Worldwide’s collection of airport hotels in Europe.

Recently, Hilton Worldwide opened the sixth hotel in its Dutch portfolio, the DoubleTree by Hilton Amsterdam Centraal Station in the Netherlands.

By 2014 Hilton plans to open the first Waldorf Astoria and Hilton Garden Inn properties in the Netherlands.
