LONDON, BUCHAREST and BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. -  Hilton Hotels Corporation has today announced the arrival of its second hotel in Romania with the opening of Hilton Sibiu. Formerly known as the Palace Resort & Spa, the property has recently completed an extensive refurbishment and renovation programme in preparation for its launch under the flagship Hilton brand. The hotel is operated as part of a franchise agreement with SC Palace Dumbrava SRL.

Commenting on the opening Simon Vincent, Area President Hilton - Europe, said: "Hilton Sibiu is a welcome addition to our Romania portfolio, joining our Hilton Athenee Palace in Bucharest. Having had a presence in the country since 1997 we are delighted to be adding such a great property, and are very much looking forward to welcoming international and domestic travellers to experience Hilton's famous brand of hospitality."

He adds: "Sibiu is a fascinating destination - it was named Europe's Capital of Culture in 2007 and offers one the best preserved medieval city centres on the continent. Its strategic location in the heart of the Transylvania makes it an important tourist and business hub, and we believe our flagship Hilton brand will prove to be a very successful fit for this market."

Nicolae Minea, the owner of SC Palace Dumbrava SRL, commented: "Today marks a new chapter in the history of this fantastic property and we are delighted to be partnering with one of the world's most recognised hotel brands. With Hilton's global presence and experience, combined with our expertise and knowledge of operating in the local market, we are confident that Hilton Sibiu will continue to be the hotel of choice in the city".

Rooms have been designed to showcase the building's rich history, combining a blend of classic design and furniture with some of the latest in-room technology, such as high speed internet access and flat screen televisions. As part of the renovation programme, the hotel's impressive lobby and public areas have been restored to their former glory, providing an atmospheric setting for guests checking in.

With three full service restaurants to choose from guests can enjoy a selection of dining options, ranging from fresh local Romanian cuisine and gourmet French fine dining to popular international dishes. The hotel's charming lobby bar offers a cosy setting to relax and enjoy a section of refreshing beverages.
