Northern Italy's Lake Como is home to blue skies, rolling hills, and crystalline waters. Now, it's also home to a Hilton hotel, according to Hilton Worldwide, which today announced the opening of Hilton Lake Como, Lake Como's first Hilton and its largest hotel property.

"We are delighted to introduce travelers in Lake Como to Hilton's world-renowned hospitality through our inspired accommodations and exceptional service," said General Manager Giorgio Borgonovo. "Whether guests are visiting to explore the many unique attractions on our doorstep, host their wedding or other special celebration, or to simply spend time enjoying our stylish hotel and its many outstanding amenities, Hilton Lake Como is poised to set the benchmark for meaningful experiences for every type of traveler."

Located in Lake Como's residential center, between central Como and the Italian-Swiss border, the new hotel is situated just 45 minutes from Milan and steps from numerous cultural and outdoor attractions, including museums, churches, parks, palaces, and golf courses, not to mention water activities on the lake itself, like boat trips and sailing lessons.

The property has 170 guest rooms -- including 21 suites, three of which have private terraces with lake views, private whirlpools, and sunbeds -- as well as three restaurants, the largest of which, Satin, boasts a wine library and cheese room. Other highlights include a rooftop infinity pool and whirlpool, an indoor pool, a solarium, a spa, a 24-hour fitness center, and six meeting spaces -- including a pillar-less ballroom -- for groups of up to 300.

"The opening of Hilton's first property in Lake Como exemplifies the brand's commitment to expanding its presence in iconic and exciting destinations that matter most to travelers from all over the world," said Andreas Lackner, regional head, full service brand management, Hilton. "This new charming hotel, with its remarkable rooftop and impressive lake views, serves as the perfect addition to our expanding portfolio of hotels and resorts. We are excited to offer guests an unforgettable stay, as well as our trusted service and hospitality."
