Hilton Hotels and Resorts has opened its first hotel at Munich Airport in Germany following a partnership with Allresto Flughafen München Hotel und Gaststätten, a wholly owned subsidiary of the airport operator Flughafen München.
The Hilton at Munich Airport has 389 rooms and is the only hotel to boast direct terminal access for passengers. It features a full height glass atrium that adds to the grandeur of the experience, and business travelers can take advantage of the state of the art conference and business facilities spread over 20 meeting rooms. The hotel’s facilities also include a fitness area with a 55-foot swimming pool, whirlpool, sauna and steam bath.
Guests have access to a range of dining options including international cuisine from Charles Lindbergh restaurant, and cocktails and snacks from the stylish Nightflight Bar located in the palm garden atrium.
Simon Vincent, president and executive vice president, EMEA, Hilton Worldwide, said, “The opening of Hilton Munich Airport follows new Hilton Worldwide airport hotels at London’s Heathrow and Gatwick as well as Krakow in Poland. With nearly 40 million passengers travelling through Munich Airport in 2014, we are uniquely positioned to give guests direct and convenient access to the terminal building. This addition to our portfolio in Germany marks more than 20 hotels trading and in the pipeline in key locations throughout the country.”
Rob Palleschi, global head, full service brands, Hilton Worldwide, said, “This year will see us increase our presence
at key transport hubs around the world, and this hotel is an incredible example
of our signature Hilton brand. Hilton Munich Airport continues our heritage of opening at prime locations internationally, including our award winning Hilton Frankfurt Airport and upcoming opening at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport in the Netherlands. We are proud to bring our Hilton values and service to guests traveling to Europe’s top airports.”
Flughafen München originally developed the hotel in 1994 and has approved plans for an extension which will see 160 guest rooms added to the building in 2017.
