New Tórshavn-based hotel will be part of Hilton Chain

Atlantic Airways yesterday revealed that its new 130-room four-star hotel in Tórshavn will be part of the global Hilton Chain, reports Kringvarp Føroya.

The national airline also revealed that the hotel, which is currently under construction, will be named Hilton Garden Inn Faroe Islands.

Hilton is an American multinational hospitality company that manages and franchises a broad portfolio of hotels and resorts. As of December 2017, its portfolio included more than 5.200 properties (including timeshare properties) with over 856.000 rooms in 105 countries and territories.

In February, Faroese insurance company Lív and Atlantic Airways announced that they had begun the process of establishing a mortgage company with the aim of building a new hotel with around 130 rooms at Staravegur in East Tórshavn.

Atlantic Airways and Lív stated at the time that the main aim of the project was to develop the Faroese tourism industry.

Atlantic Airways will run the hotel which is expected to cost DKK 120 million.

The hotel is set to open in the first half of 2020. What is more, Martin Restorff has been appointed as the CEO of the new hotel.
