Hilton will operate a new hotel in the commercial city of Al Khobar in Saudi Arabi, due to open by the end of 2014.

The hospitality company signed a management agreement with Saudi based Hamad Abdulaziz Almousa Trading Group to build the new 158-room hotel in the country’s Eastern Province, making it the third Hilton hotel planned for Al Khobar, and the 17th planned across Saudi Arabia.

The new hotel will make the kingdom Hilton Worldwide’s largest development market in the Middle East.

The hotel, under the operator's DoubleTree brand, will be located downtown on the city’s corniche, and will feature meeting facilities, two boardrooms, a conference hall, two meeting rooms, a health club, swimming pool, two restaurants and a lounge.

Rudi Jagersbacher, president of Hilton Worldwide Middle East & Africa, said: “Saudi Arabia is a powerhouse of activity for Hilton Worldwide. We are opening 17 new hotels over the next three years and working to solidify our position as the leading hospitality company in the Kingdom.

“Al Khobar is a growing, vibrant community and I am delighted we are expanding our presence in a city which offers so much potential.”
