Curio Collection by Hilton Hotel in a 14th Century Castle
Hilton has revealed that it will soon open its first Dutch Curio Collection by Hilton hotel as part of a franchise agreement. This will be a unique property in a 14th century castle. Kasteel Gemert Eindhoven will be located in the charming town of Gemert, a short drive from Eindhoven. The hotel is set to open in 2024.
Kasteel Gemert Eindhoven, Curio Collection by Hilton, will offer at least 56 upscale guest rooms designed to provide a modern aesthetic while reflecting the property’s historic character.
Led by award-winning designer Piet Boon, the hotel’s interior will be carefully renovated to offer contemporary accommodations and public spaces with all the authenticity and originality the Curio Collection by Hilton brand is known for. The hotel will feature two restaurants and a bar, along with spa and wellness facilities featuring an indoor swimming pool.
The castle hotel will be flanked by trees and the castle’s moat, where guests will be able to enjoy a relaxing rowboat experience along the still waters.
The hotel will cater to business travelers with an indoor meeting room and a large outdoor event space. Underground and outdoor parking means the hotel will also be well prepared to welcome both domestic and international guests looking to take advantage of the hotel’s proximity to key cities like Eindhoven, or explore the many parks and castles in the North Brabant province.
As the home of more than 5,000 technology and IT companies, nearby Eindhoven has built a reputation as a European tech hub and is the leading producer of patents in the country. While this reputation attracts strong business travel demand, the city also welcomes leisure travelers for events like the GLOW Festival, a citywide festival of light sculptures that takes place each year.
Eindhoven also features several museums, a vibrant urban culture and many shopping outlets.
