Hilton has added two US hotels to its Curio Collection brand in Atlanta and Pittsburgh.
The Starling Atlanta Midtown, Curio Collection by Hilton is a rebrand of the former W Atlanta Midtown, which itself carried out a full renovation programme in 2019.
As part of the rebrand the hotel has undergone a refresh of its spa facilities and lobby bar, which is now known as Lantana.
Located at 188 14th Street next to Colony Square, the hotel offers 466 rooms, a seasonal outdoor terrace pool, fitness centre, and 4,200 sqm of meeting space including a top-floor events space with views of the city.
Meanwhile the Joinery Hotel Pittsburgh, Curio Collection by Hilton is housed within a building which formerly operated as the Distrikt Hotel Pittsburgh in the city’s downtown Golden Triangle neighbourhood.
The 185-room hotel features a revamped lobby space with library, bike shop, coffee by local roaster Nicholas Coffee and beer by Voodoo Brewery.
Other facilities include a fitness centre with Star Trac equipment, and a 10th floor outdoor terrace for events, and the hotel is also running the Steel City Artist-In-Residency Series, exhibiting works by local artists starting with multidisciplinary sculptor Blaine Siegel, who has created an abstract work using Polaroid photography.
Commenting on the Pittsburgh opening Donato Coluccio, general manager and local resident, said:
“Like the joining of the Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers with the Ohio River that gives the Golden Triangle its name, Joinery Hotel represents a natural coming together of community to create a new ‘place to be’ for locals in Steel City.
“We’re thrilled to debut as the ideal Downtown launch pad for leisure and business travellers to explore the best of Pittsburgh from a local’s point-of-view, as well as offer unique moments of discovery within our hotel that provide guests with an authentic sense of place.”
Hilton’s Curio brand launched in 2014, and last year passed the milestone of 100 properties worldwide.
Notable forthcoming Curio hotels include Lost Property St Paul’s London, which is housed behind the Grade II listed Creed Court building on the corner of Ludgate Hill and Creed Lane, and is scheduled to open later this month.
