Hilton’s ‘Curio Collection‘ of independent hotels has added Grand Tirolia Hotel Kitzbuhel.

This looks very interesting because there are a real lack of ski and alpine hotels in Europe where you can redeem points

Grand Tirolia Hotel Hilton Curio Collection

Grand Tirolia is an existing hotel which came under new ownership this year and has now linked with Curio.  The hotel spa includes indoor and outdoor heated pools, 11 treatment rooms and six saunas and adjacent to the 18-hole Eichenheim golf course.  It would work well for either a ski holiday or a summer hiking break.

It is on the Hilton website here.
