Hilton is poised to become the first international hotel brand to operate in the Faroe Islands, following a franchise agreement with P/F Hotel Atlantic, a subsidiary of the National Airline, Atlantic Airways. The Hilton Garden Inn Faroe Islands is currently under construction and is set to open in the capital city, Torshavn, in 2020.
“For a century, Hilton has opened up new destinations to international travelers, creating a meaningful economic impact in the communities in which we operate,” said Patrick Fitzgibbon, Senior Vice President, Development, Europe, Middle East and Africa, Hilton. “The arrival of Hilton Garden Inn to the Faroe Islands is an important example of how careful tourism development can help create a sustainable destination which can be enjoyed by international visitors for generations to come.”
The hotel is located within walking distance of the harbor, the center of Torshavn and near the national stadium, arena and conference center – a prime destination for leisure travelers and the Islands’ growing business travel sector. Boasting uninterrupted sea views, Hilton Garden Inn Faroe Islands will be an ideal setting for those seeking extraordinary experiences and unique food & beverage offerings.
“This project is an exciting opportunity to bring the first ever internationally-branded hotel to the Faroe Islands,” said Niels Mortensen, Chairman of P/F Hotel Atlantic. “Working with a prestigious partner and renowned brand such as Hilton provides a fantastic platform to showcase Torshavn as a flourishing business and leisure destination for global travelers.”
Situated between Norway, Iceland and the North Atlantic Ocean, the Faroe Islands include 18 islands featuring dramatic volcanic scenery, stunning wildlife, and atmospheric seascapes. A magnet for nature enthusiasts, the self-governing archipelago is one of the most remote destinations in the world and is focused on attracting sustainable, responsible tourism to its protected shores.
Once open, the hotel will feature 131 guest rooms, a restaurant and shop, a fitness center, spa and flexible meeting space.
Hilton Garden Inn Faroe Islands will be located at Staravegur 13, 100, Torshavn.
The new hotel is one of more than 100 Hilton Garden Inn hotels currently open or under development in Europe, Middle East & Africa.
