Today Grand Hotel Vilnius, Curio Collection by Hilton celebrates its highly anticipated opening.

Boasting timeless elegance, rich heritage and iconic living, the 93-room hotel is set in the heart of a historical UNESCO World Heritage Site in Vilnius Old Town and is the latest addition to the growing Curio Collection by Hilton portfolio.

Exuding elegance throughout its every corner, the hotel proudly showcases carefully curated artwork from the owner’s collection, which includes fragments of the 16th-century Vilnius defence wall, and other intriguing details and furnishings.

The exquisite lobby seamlessly extends to the dining area, boasting large windows and beautiful marble floors.

Each of its 93 high-end rooms and suites offer timeless accommodation paired with impeccable service, featuring custom-made furniture, lounge areas, and large work desks.

Passionate about creating unique experiences, guests will be greeted by the hotel’s dedicated hosts dressed in a distinctive yellow uniform – Iconists – whose role is to create a thoroughly personalised stay through distinctive touches and tailored experiences.

The hotel's conference centre boasts 600 square meters of exclusive meeting and banqueting spaces, ideal for high-profile events, sophisticated celebrations, and weddings.

Decadent Dining

Guests are invited to experience the elegant atmosphere and go on a gastronomical journey at the hotel restaurant Telegrafas, which offers an elevated fine-dining experience serving modern European cuisine crafted with special attention to freshness and seasonal ingredients, complemented by panoramic views of the picturesque Vilnius Cathedral Square.

Those looking for a slightly more laid-back option will find Dukes Lounge & Bar to be the perfect choice, as it’s famous for its rich selection of wines and signature world-class cocktails and offers a relaxing atmosphere for socialising throughout the day.

In the morning guests can indulge in a hearty breakfast, which includes homemade artisanal baked delicacies, local culinary specialties, and freshly brewed coffee.

Curated Wellness

An oasis of relaxation, the Grand Hotel Vilnius Spa provides guests with a vast choice of signature spa rituals, massages, and beauty treatments.

Spa lovers can indulge in authentic treatments, featuring four seasons, which will leave them feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. Spa facilities feature soothing treatment rooms, a relaxation space, an indoor pool, as well as Finnish and steam saunas.

Historical Presence

Having played an important role in the country’s history – from being a telegraph station to serving as the Treasury – Grand Hotel Vilnius remains one of the city's timeless icons - elegant, historic, and unapologetically unique.

Located directly across from Cathedral Square, the hotel offers magnificent views of the city's Old Town, with major tourist attractions such as the Grand Dukes Palace, the Presidential Palace, numerous cultural institutions, and shopping areas within walking distance.

David Kelly, senior vice president, Continental Europe, Hilton, said, “In line with our exciting expansion plans across Continental Europe, we are pleased to partner with Apex Alliance Hotel Management to open our first Curio Collection property in the Baltics – Grand Hotel Vilnius, Curio Collection by Hilton.
