Hilton Plans Landmark New Hotel in Rome
Scheduled for 2020 – 439 Rooms
Construction is underway on the new build hotel, which includes 439 guest rooms within an architecturally distinctive structure known as “La Lama” (The Blade).
Hilton Rome Eur – La Lama is in Rome’s Eur district, in the south of the city. The neighbourhood has undergone extensive redevelopment in recent years and is a vibrant business hub with large corporate headquarters situated in the area, such as Poste Italiane, Eni and ACEA.
The hotel will have direct access via a concourse to Rome’s foremost conference venue. Named La Nuvola (The Cloud) after the unique shape of the property – which was designed by Italian architect Massimiliano Fuksas – the Roma Convention Centre is the largest in Rome and can host events of nearly 8,000 delegates in its main ballroom.
An all-day dining restaurant and lobby bar will be situated on the hotel’s ground floor, while a destination restaurant is set to be the area’s leading eatery when it opens on the property’s 15th floor. The hotel will also include an executive lounge and business and fitness centres.
