IHG Hotels Opens First Vignette Collection Hotel in Europe

IHG Hotels & Resort has announced the first Vignette Collection hotel in Europe as Casa da Companhia opens in the centre of Porto, Portugal.

Situated in the heart of Porto, Casa da Companhia embraces the cultural vibe of one of Portugal’s most majestic cities, enticing guests to soak up the atmosphere of the city.

Casa da Companhia, like all Vignette Collection hotels, offers a unique travel experience with a distinct outlook and story to tell. This new hotel is in the prestigious and picturesque Clérigos district of Porto, ideal for guests looking to enjoy the serene ambience and historical roots of the city.

With its high-end boutique feel, the hotel has 40 rooms including three suites, a luxurious spa featuring treatments from Holiclinica, a fitness suite, heated indoor and outdoor pools and an outdoor terrace.

This truly unique property offers timeless design in one of the city’s most emblematic houses. It is located just five minutes walking distance from São Bento Station, and on the doorstep of the main city attractions such as the medieval architecture of the city’s buildings, the plentiful gardens boasting a myriad of colourful flowers or the cosmopolitan port area filled with cafes, bars and eateries.

Porto is known for its gastronomic experiences. Casa da Companhia carries on the trend with its restaurant and bar located on vibrant Flower Street. The Executive Chef has created an authentic Mediterranean gastronomic experience, with dishes inspired by his childhood memories, his roots and experience acquired over the years.

In an atmosphere of refinement and sophistication, the restaurant presents a menu with nuances of spices from the routes of India, through a range of dishes based on international trends, with a focus on local produce from the Porto coast, plains and Trás-os-Montes mountains.

Vignette Collection hotels infuse unexpected moments into the stay experience, known as ‘Memorable Rituals’, which add a special something to remember every stay. Guests can experience the tradition of ‘fire opening’ a bottle of Port, while enjoying a glass paired with a chocolate truffle, every Wednesday and Saturday from 6pm to 7pm.

Guests will also have access to a best-in-class loyalty programme, IHG One Rewards, which is centred around its guests – giving them richer benefits tailored to their needs and more ways to earn than ever before, all powered by leading technology on its new mobile app.

Vignette Collection, the newest brand in IHG’s fast-growing luxury and lifestyle portfolio, is a family of distinct luxury hotels connected by a shared vision that travel can benefit local people and places.

Casa da Companhia is Vignette Collection’s 5th hotel to open. Others are Yours Truly DC in the U.S., Hotel X Brisbane Fortitude Valley in Australia and Sindhorn Midtown Hotel Bangkok in Thailand.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.
