Formerly the Prague Renaissance, the 305-room property has undergone a multi million dollar transformation, overseen by celebrated interior designer Alexandra Champalimaud, recognised for her work at The Boca Raton Resort & Club and New York’s Carlyle Hotel.

The project also included a complete refit of all guest rooms, including the addition of 15 new suites and a luxurious Presidential Suite.

our commitment to enhancing and developing Hilton’s presence in Eastern
Europe. With two properties now located in the historic Czech capital -

to expand its meeting facilities in 2008.”
