When it comes to Croatia and tourism over the past few years, good news has become a common thing. The latest news comes from one of the largest hotel brands in the world, in the next two years, the tourist offer of the country will be enriched with two more hotels that will operate under the Hilton brand.
The Zagreb City Hotels company, which runs the Double Tree Hotel by Hilton in the Croatian capital, confirmed this announcement a few days ago.
The Canopy by Hilton Hotel is to be opened in Zagreb in the middle of next year, (after the first one opened in Reykjavik), whilst the opening of Garden Inn is scheduled for the second half of 2019.
The Hilton company will invest 10 million Euros in equipping of the future four-star hotels, confirmed Josipa Jutt Ferlan, the director of the Zagreb City Hotels and the cluster general manager for all three Hilton hotels in Zagreb.

The Canopy by Hilton is an upscale lifestyle brand with a high-level design featuring a fusion of international standards and local features. It targets the market that is more demanding and is positioned right behind luxury brands such as Waldorf Astoria and Conrad. Thus, Zagreb will be the second European city to get the Canopy by Hilton Hotel, right after Reykjavik, and before London, Paris and Madrid.
The Hilton Garden Inn is a focus service brand intended for a wider population of guests. Within the hotel in Zagreb, there will be a congress-banquet centre with five halls, out of which the largest one will have a capacity for 400 visitors with a terrace and a view over the Upper city. Thus, Zagreb will get a new state-of-the-art congress hall with built-in boots for simultaneous interpretation and translation, as well as a new attractive venue for organizing weddings and other events.
