First Curio hotel signed in South America
The 50-room Anselmo Buenos Aires joins Curio ? A Collection by Hilton, becoming the first Curio hotel in South America when it opens in July. The hotel was converted from an historic mansion built in 1906, rumored to have been owned by Anselmo Aieta, a famous tango musician and composer. It maintains its original facade complemented by a modern design comprised of spacious rooms and upscale restaurant and bar concepts.
?The Anselmo Buenos Aires is not just the first Curio hotel in South America, but also our first in the Curio collection to bring to life a piece of history that was never before part of the hotel industry,? said Ted Middleton, senior vice president, development ? Latin America, Hilton Worldwide. ?This gives us the chance to further shape the brand with new, independent properties that are meaningful in their respective destinations.?
Dianna Vaughan, global head, Curio – A Collection by Hilton said: ?The eight opened hotels currently in the Curio collection are defined by the independent properties themselves, and there’s no question the rich history of Argentina as embodied in the original architecture of the Anselmo mansion will make a memorable impact on visitors.?
As members of the Hilton Worldwide portfolio, all Curio hotels participate in Hilton HHonors.
