Italian hotel group H.n.h. Hotels & Resorts has agreed to manage the DoubleTree by Hilton Trieste. The hotel, the group’s 11th property in Northern Italy, will be located in the Piazza della Repubblica in the historic former headquarters of Ras Insurance, now owned by Allianz Italia.

H.n.h. Hotels & Resorts is leasing the building from Allianz Italia and has signed a franchising agreement with Hilton. The hotel will be added to a portfolio of more than 25 Hilton properties trading or in development in Italy and will be the first Hilton property in Trieste. ”This will be the second property which H.n.h. Hotels & Resorts will manage through a franchise agreement with Hilton, and is an important milestone in the growth of this partnership,” Luca Boccato, CEO of H.n.h. Hotels & Resorts said in a statement.

The CBRE Hotel Department, led by Francesco Calia, advised Allianz Italia on research and operator selection.
