Curio Collection by Hilton - Why We Love Them

We love Hilton and Hilton Honors (it's no secret). Hilton has over a dozen brands of hotels in their portfolio including Hilton Hotels, Conrad Hotels, Hampton Inns, etc. One of their newer brands is a soft collection of four and five star independent/boutique hotels that have joined Hilton's "Curio Collection". The properties in the Curio Collection by Hilton are upscale hotels that have a much more local and boutique feel and often have historical significance in their communities. We've stayed at several Curio Collection by Hilton properties and are now at the point that we almost always choose a Curio Collection hotel over other Hilton hotels if available.

Two of our favorite recent Curio Collection stays included the El San Juan Hotel in Puerto Rico and The Renwick Hotel in New York City.

The Curio Collection by Hilton currently has 49 hotels in it's portfolio with several new hotels being added to the collection in the upcoming months. Those new hotels include the Porter Hotel in Portland, Oregon (currently under construction), Martinique New York located on Broadway in New York City, The Charter Seattle in Seattle (currently under construction) and The Cincinnatian Hotel in Cincinnati (picture below).

And don't forget, being a Gold or Diamond member with Hilton Honors comes with great benefits including free breakfast, upgraded rooms, early check-in, late check-out and more (you can get Hilton Honors Gold Status with the American Express Hilton Surpass Card).
