Today, there are nearly 100 Curio Collection properties in almost 30 countries worldwide, demonstrating its global mark in the hospitality industry and its position in Hilton’s portfolio. The Curio Collection is a soft brand, meaning its hotels are supported by Hilton, and were carefully handpicked for their unique character and personality, retaining their own individual branding.
