Hilton Worldwide is offering visitors to the city of Lodz a unique voyage through Poland’s cinematic history thanks to the opening on July 22, 2013 of the country’s first DoubleTree by Hilton, part of the chain’s upscale brand, which features more than 350 hotels globally. Opening at the site of the Lodz Film Studio, the newly built DoubleTree by Hilton Lodz pays homage to the golden age of Polish cinema. Its towering 86,000 square feet glass facade depicts a scene from one of the many Polish film masterpieces to have emanated from Lodz’s famous “Dream Factory” studios. Once inside, guests continue their journey through cinematic history with guest rooms featuring film motifs, while the hotel’s swimming pool forms a visual tribute to the works of Oscar winning director, Roman Polanski.
