The Hilton Group has earmarked the Region of Valencia as a destination for the corporate tourism of business, conferences and meetings by opening the Hilton Valencia. This great international 5-star hotel is located opposite the Palacio de Congresos conference centre, in one of the city’s new areas of expansion.
The luxury hotel boasts 304 rooms; 35 of which are suites and 10 of which are relaxation rooms, which have their own jacuzzi and are fully devoted to rest and relaxation. Floors 28 and 29 house two presidential suites, with one per floor, and the hotel also features 16 meating rooms, a large ballroom and a ceremonial hall.
The Hilton Valencia opened its doors in May 2007 with the intention of becoming the clear leader of the cify’s hotel industry — aspirations aided by the fact that the hotel is the city’s tallest skyscraper, towering over one of the Regional capital’s largest areas of expansion. Built from glass and composite materials, and occupying two buildings — one of 29 storeys and the other of 14 — the hotel has been praised by architects and town planners alike.
Inside the Valencia Hilton is the Restaurante BICE, which is directly accessible from street level and is only the second of its kind in Spain, following the opening of the Madrid restaurant. Like BICE restaurants the world over, it is a youthful establishment, with an elegant and warm atmosphere. The menu is dominated by top-of-the-range Italian specialities, featuring great pasta dishes, exquisite meats, salads and other Italian delights. The décor has bean tailored to blend well with the Hilton’s modern setting, enjoying the warmth of wood and Art Deco elements.
