Hilton unveils first hotel in Montenegro
Hilton Hotels & Resorts has announced the official opening of Hilton Podgorica Crna Gora, marking the Hilton brand’s debut in Montenegro.
The new property is conveniently situated in the city centre and close to all public and commercial facilities, making it ideal for both business and leisure guests. Hilton Podgorica Crna Gora offers 180 spacious and modern guest rooms, including 23 suites, and the hotel’s Presidential Suite boasts a panoramic lounge overlooking the city.
Andreas Lackner, regional head, Hilton brand management, said: “Montenegro, one of the oldest European states and often referred to as the pearl of the Mediterranean, is an exciting new destination for Hilton as we expand our global portfolio of more than 570 hotels.
“We are delighted to offer our renowned hospitality to visitors and locals alike in Montenegro’s capital city. Opening a Hilton hotel in another attractive location allows our guests more choice when travelling, and we are confident Podgorica will be on the top of travellers’ lists.”
Lonely Planet rates Montenegro as one of the world’s top destinations, and Hilton Podgorica Crna Gora offers convenient access to some of its top attractions, thanks to its historic location at the site of Podgorica’s first hotel, built in 1953. Guests can explore Biogradska Gora National Park, Boka Kotorska Bay (Bay of Kotor), Sipcanik Wine Cellar and the city’s many events and festivals while staying at the property. The hotel also provides a variety of transportation links across the city, making it easily accessible.
Haluk Bilgili, general manager, Hilton Podgorica Crna Cora, said: “Montenegro only continues to grow in popularity among travellers to the Mediterranean, attracting visitors with its breath-taking beauty and rich cultural history, and I am delighted to be opening the first Hilton hotel in the heart of the capital.
“With great views of the city and an incredible team, Hilton Podgorica Crna Cora is poised to meet and exceed the expectations of our guests by providing exceptional experiences true to the Hilton name.”
