TBILISI, Georgia & MCLEAN, Va. – Hilton plans to introduce its Hilton Hotels & Resorts brand to the capital of Georgia with the signing of a management agreement with Granat LLC, it was announced last month.
In early 2019, the 206-room Hilton Tbilisi is set to open. As part of the design, the building’s historic façade will be preserved, while a glass roof will be built on top of the building and will house the hotel’s rooftop bar and spa.
In addition to the rooftop bar, the hotel will include an all-day dining restaurant, lobby bar and street-facing café. For business and events visitors, the hotel will offer more than 10,760 square feet of function and meeting space, in addition to an executive lounge and business centre.
“Tbilisi’s diverse economy, with substantial international infrastructure investment, a burgeoning events calendar and leisure growth, makes the city a promising market to be introducing our flagship brand,” said Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice-president of development, EMEA, Hilton.
Located on Kostrova Street, Hilton Tbilisi will be close to two of the city’s most vibrant districts, Tbilisi’s main thoroughfare, Rustavelli Avenue, and the main train station, and 15 kilometres from Tbilisi International Airport.
Hilton Hotels & Resorts has 18 properties currently under development across Europe, with two hotels in Georgia: Hilton Batumi on the Black Sea coast, which opened in the summer of 2015, and Hilton Garden Inn Tbilisi Chavchavadze, which is currently under construction and set to open in 2018 in Tbilisi’s financial district.
