Hilton Worldwide on Wednesday announced the signing of a management agreement with Universal Management Group to open the mid-market Hilton Garden Inn Doha C Ring Road.

Set to open in 2018, the hotel is located in Qatar's capital, Doha and once open will join Hilton Garden Inn hotels already operating in the UAE and Saudi Arabia, Hilton said in a statement.

"As one of the world's commercial capitals, Doha is a key market for our growing presence in the Middle East, with its continuously evolving visitor offering and infrastructure," said Carlos Khneisser, vice president, development, Middle East & North Africa, Hilton Worldwide.

Hilton Garden Inn Doha C Ring Road will feature 138 guest rooms, a health club and outdoor swimming pool. Dining options include an all-day dining restaurant, a lobby cafe, a bar and 24-hour Pavilion Pantry.

With the Qatar tourism industry expected to reach $7.2 billion by 2025, Qatar's capital city has recently seen a huge investment in its transportation network, with the opening of a new international airport and the development of a metro rail system.

Hilton Worldwide currently has two hotels operating in Qatar, with a further seven hotels under development, including AlRayyan Hotel Doha, a part of the Curio collection, which is due to open in late 2016.
