AUSTIN - The Hotel Granduca Austin will be designated as a member of The Leading Hotels of the World organization. The only other hotel in Texas to receive that recognition is the original Hotel Granduca Houston.
The organization includes about 420 hotels in 80 countries and was established in 1928 by European hoteliers who were interested in creating an exclusive brand of high-end hotels and resorts.
The Hotel Granduca Austin is under construction near Westlake on the northwest corner of Capital of Texas Hwy. and Bee Cave Rd.
The Italian inspired hotel is the brainchild of Giorgio Borlenghi, founder of Interfin Cos. LP and a native of Milan, Italy. The 194-room hotel is scheduled to open fall 2015.
It will include the upscale Ristorante Visconti, which will feature Northern Italian cuisine.
