Hilton Worldwide and Schiphol Real Estate, Schiphol Group’s real estate subsidiary, have today signed an agreement to introduce a new landmark 433 guest room Hilton Hotels & Resorts hotel to Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, to be designed by prominent Dutch architects, Mecanoo. The new cube-shaped building, which will feature rounded edges and a diamond-shaped façade with diagonal lines, has been designed with a view to it becoming an airport landmark. More images and architects’ description after the break.

Plans for the hotel, a development and investment by Schiphol Real Estate and managed by Hilton, were drawn up to meet increasing market demand and match the high quality standards of Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. Facilities are set to include a ballroom and 23 meeting rooms, speciality restaurant and bar, executive lounge, spa and fitness center, light-filled atrium lobby and underground parking offering 138 parking spaces. A new sheltered walkway will also connect hotel guests directly to the international airport terminal.

The new hotel, which will replace the current Hilton property, will be situated in a prominent location alongside the access roads to the international airport terminal, near to the existing Hilton hotel which remain in operation until the opening of the new hotel, and demolished upon the new opening. It is expected to open in 2015, with construction scheduled to start later in 2012.
