Hilton (NYSE: HLT) today celebrates the opening of The Emerald House Lisbon, Curio Collection by Hilton, marking the debut of Curio Collection by Hilton in the Portuguese capital. The 67-room property is nestled among historic palaces and charming churches, with rooms looking out to stunning views of the Tagus River and the city itself, perched on the seven hills that make up Lisbon.
The hotel is named after the street where it is located, Rua das Janelas Verdes, which translates to “Green Windows Street.” Set in a restored building in a prime location steeped in history and favored by 18th-century nobility, accents of the property’s cultural heritage resonate throughout the interiors. The ground floor, which used to be a bakery, serves a variety of delicious breads and pastries. Several objects that belonged to the former occupants of the building, such as an old bathtub, tiles and a sink, have been preserved and used as unique decorative pieces in the hotel. The region’s art and antiques underpin the sleek modern décor, creating a distinctive ambience perfect for those looking to experience authentic Lisbon.
When you’re not exploring the best the city has to offer, you can sip and sample drinks and contemporary Portuguese dishes at the hotel’s restaurant, A Mesa, or unwind with a glass of Vinho Verde at the Five O’Clock Bar. A state-of-the-art 24-hour fitness center is also available for those who want to stay active.
Emerald House Lisbon is located next to the National Museum of Ancient Art, where you can learn about the cultural history that surrounds them. A short stroll will take you to the nearby upscale neighborhoods of Chiado and Baixa, where travelers can marvel at impressive palaces, browse independent boutiques, and explore the bustling restaurant scene. For those looking for a digestive, the iconic Cais Do Sodre – known as “Pink Street” – due to the unusual and charming color of its sidewalk – is a short walk from the hotel.
