MCLEAN, Va.—Coming off the heels of its five-year milestone as a brand, Curio Collection by Hilton is expanding its presence in the western United States with the addition of five hotels in Washington, New Mexico, California, and Utah. This expansion brings Curio Collection’s portfolio to more than half of all U.S. states.

“For those looking for relaxing desert getaways at the historic Hotel Andaluz Albuquerque or for rigorous adventures while hiking and rock climbing in the surrounding national parks at Hoodoo Moab, these additions offer a mix of local culture, food, and the chance to explore the great outdoors,” said Mark Nogal, global head, Curio Collection by Hilton. “Over the past five years, we’ve delivered unique experiences to curious travelers in unexpected, emerging destinations, and with more than 60 hotels in our global pipeline, we’re just getting started.”

The new western hotels will offer experiences and amenities curated with each curiosity type’s interest in mind, whether epicureans indulging in top-notch local cuisine, spiritualists finding tranquility in nearby deserts, or pathfinders hiking mountains in the Pacific Northwest.
