DoubleTree by Hilton Debuts in the Historic Port City of A Coruña
Elegant new property brings world-class hospitality and dining experiences to the heart of Spain’s prominent cultural and business destination
A CORUÑA, Spain - DoubleTree by Hilton A Coruña today opens its doors to guests in the heart of the historic city. The upscale hotel – which offers DoubleTree by Hilton’s signature warm hospitality, spacious guest rooms and exciting dining options – joins four DoubleTree by Hilton properties already open in Spain.
The elegant new property is situated just 50 metres from A Coruña’s beautiful beach promenade – one of the longest in Europe. Stretching from Castillo de San Anton to El Portino, the 13-kilometre promenade provides a picturesque place for a leisurely stroll.
The contemporary hotel is also home to Hünico, an exciting new restaurant concept by award-winning Spanish chef Adrian Felípez, who is known for his ability to reinvent tradition by giving classic Galician dishes a modern twist. A rising star in the culinary world, Felípez has already received a number of recognitions for his work, including Michelin’s Bib Gourmand award, the Q award issued by the Institute for Spanish Tourism Quality, and the Distinction Galicia Calidade. Meaning ‘unique’ in Spanish and serving delectable Atlantic cuisine against the beautiful backdrop of the historic port city, Hünico brings Felípez’ culinary expertise to DoulbleTree by Hilton A Coruña and promises diners a memorable gastronomic experience.
A Coruña’s range of cultural attractions are easily accessible from the hotel, and bike rentals are available for guests who wish to explore the city. Travellers can marvel at the Roman Tower of Hercules, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the world’s oldest working lighthouse. At A Coruña’s Old Town, visitors can find Maria Pita Square, which houses the City Hall and a statue of Maria Pita, a local heroine known for having warned the town of an invasion in the late 1500s. A Coruña is also home to a number of established international companies – and for those visiting the city on business, the hotel is ideally situated just one kilometre from the Maria Pita square.
“We are pleased to be bringing Hilton’s world-renowned hospitality to A Coruña for the first time,” said Simon Vincent, EVP and President, EMEA, Hilton. “Spain’s enduring appeal as a leisure destination and business hub has made it an important growth market for Hilton in recent years, and DoubleTree by Hilton A Coruña is an excellent addition to our portfolio.”
A modern, contemporary design is evident throughout the hotel, with each of the 59 spacious guest rooms accessible via Digital Key – Hilton’s state-of-the-art technology that allows guests to open their room door with their mobile device via the Hilton Honors app. Each room also offers a king-size bed, tea and coffee making facilities, and a 55-inch TV. In addition, superior and deluxe rooms offer sofa beds.
Guests looking to keep fit can take advantage of the hotel’s 24/7 state-of-the-art gym or relax and unwind at the sauna. For those looking to plan small group meetings, the hotel offers an intimate 35-square-metre meeting room with a private terrace. Meanwhile, the hotel’s conveniently located beauty salon makes it easy for guests to quickly polish up before their next meeting or day out in the city.
A range of dining options are also available at the hotel, including:
- Hünico Restaurant, meaning ‘unique’ in Spanish and created by celebrated Spanish chef Adrian Felípez, serves mouth-watering Atlantic cuisine made with handpicked, locally sourced ingredients. Presenting Felípez’ award-winning culinary technique, which entails deliciously blending the old with the new, Hünico promises diners a memorable gastronomic journey against the beautiful backdrop of the historic port city.
- Connected to Hünico Restaurant, Hünico Terrace and Lounge is the perfect spot to enjoy a refreshing cocktail while overlooking glittering views of the A Coruña coastline.
- Guests can also savour light bites and sip on delicious drinks at the conveniently located Lobby Bar.
“DoubleTree by Hilton A Coruña provides visitors with the welcoming comforts and hospitality common to all DoubleTree by Hilton hotels, starting with a warm chocolate chip cookie at check-in and continuing with excellent service throughout a guest’s stay,” said Shawn McAteer, Senior Vice President and Global Head, DoubleTree by Hilton. “We look forward to welcoming travellers and are certain they will enjoy the hotel’s modern and spacious guest rooms, great dining options, and prime location.”
