The world-renowned Hilton Hotels and Resorts brand announced on Thursday, November 9 an agreement with Groupe Bertout to open the ‘Columbus Hotel Monte-Carlo, Curio Collection by Hilton.’ The boutique 181-guest room hotel located in Fontvieille is expected to rebrand before the end of the year when it will mark Hilton’s debut in the Principality.

“The Principality of Monaco is an iconic destination, and the Columbus Hotel Monte-Carlo, Curio Collection by Hilton will be an incredible addition to our portfolio marking our first hotel in Monaco,” said Hilton Senior Vice President of Development Patrick Fitzgibbon.

While this is the first foray into Monaco for Hilton, the brand has already established itself on the Riviera with the opening of Canopy by Hilton Cannes in August 2023. The takeover of the Columbus Hotel should only enhance the current establishment, whose guests enjoy views of the Princess Grace Rose Garden and the big blue Mediterranean.

The managing director of Groupe Bertout, Dimitri Bertout, said: “We are thrilled to embark on our first project with Hilton, bringing the characterful Curio Collection by Hilton brand to the iconic city of Monaco. The intimate and cosy Columbus Hotel Monte-Carlo, Curio Collection by Hilton, is a beacon for those looking for a stylish yet comfortable accommodation, be it for business or leisure. Monaco is an always changing destination, and we look forward to welcoming guests later in the year.”
