Florence’s historic Anglo American Hotel rebrands to Hilton’s Curio Collection  

Tuesday, 01 February 2022 10:24

At the end of the year the Anglo American Hotel in Florence will rebrand as part of Hilton’s Curio Collection. The former Nh was acquired last April by the Star II fund, managed by Castello Sgr with Unicredit as the main financing bank. The accord saw Hilton enter into partnership with the Westmont Hospitality Group and the fund headed by Oaktree Capital Management. Located in the historic center of Florence the 115-room hotel will undergo a complete renovation ahead of its opening.

Welcoming guests to the historic centre of Florence

"Across the continent we have seen a growing interest in our brand collections which allow properties to maintain their identity, and at the same time enjoy the benefits offered by our commercial networks. We now look forward to welcoming guests to the historic centre of Florence,” comments Hilton's Senior Vice President Development EMEA, Patrick Fitzgibbon.  A note from Westmont Hospitality said the group is delighted to further strengthen their partnership with Hilton, after successful collaborations both in Italy and in the rest of the world. 

One of Florence’s first hotels

Originally built in 1792 as one of the first hotels in Florence, with guests including Lev Tolstoy and Maria Callas, the renovated Anglo American Florence will maintain its historic grandeur and elegance, while benefitting from the prestige of an international brand like Curio Collection.

A sustainable renovation 

The focus of the hotel’s renovation will be on preserving its architecture, while fully respecting its history, and the  refurbishment and reuse of existing materials will be key features of the sustainability strategy. The hotel will have an internal courtyard, a restaurant with a menu inspired by local flavours and traditions, a bar, a gym and three meeting rooms for up to 90 people.
