Hilton has announced plans to add its first Curio Collection property in Monaco.

The existing Columbus Hotel Monte-Carlo will join the brand before the end of the year, under a franchise agreement with owners Groupe Bertout.

According to the hotel’s website the property was last refurbished in 2018, and features 181 rooms – two thirds of which have terraces – as well as 13 serviced residences, Mediterranean restaurant Tavolo, and a seasonal heated outdoor swimming pool with sea views.

The hotel is situated in Monaco’s residential Port de Fontvieille district, opposite the Princess Grace Rose Garden and close to the Stade Louis II stadium.

Hilton’s Curio brand launched just under a decade ago, and currently has a portfolio of around 145 properties worldwide, with recent openings including The Morrow Hotel in Washington DC’s NoMa district.
