Hilton Worldwide and UAE-based wasl hospitality and leisure has announced agreements to open a further two mid-market hotels in Dubai - Hampton by Hilton Dubai Al Mina and Hilton Garden Inn Bur Dubai.
The deal follows the recent announcement of the arrival of Hampton by Hilton to the Middle East with the signing of the region's first hotel for the mid-market brand in Dubai's Al Qusais.
Rudi Jagersbacher, president, Middle East and Africa for Hilton Worldwide, said: "These latest signings will add to our rapidly increasing footprint in Dubai, which is expected to more than double in the next few years with primarily mid-market hotels.
"Travellers to the UAE are increasingly looking for a diverse range of accommodation options, be it luxury, upscale or mid-market - and with the opening of Hilton Garden Inn in Dubai this year, we are delighted to be offering yet more options."
Hilton Garden Inn Bur Dubai will feature 292 guest rooms and be located in a prime area of Dubai Creek. The hotel will feature two food and beverage outlets; a large multi-functional meeting room; 24-hour business centre and Pavilion Pantry; as well as a swimming pool and health club.
Hampton by Hilton Dubai Al Mina, the second Hampton by Hilton to be agreed for Dubai, will feature 206 guest rooms, with breakfast area, a bar and gathering zone, agym and swimming pool.
"With the arrival of Hilton Garden Inn this year in Al Mina and Al Muraqabat, we are delighted to be adding a further two properties to our growing portfolio with Hilton Worldwide," said Hesham Al Qassim, CEO, wasl Asset Management Group, parent company of wasl hospitality and leisure.
"We believe there is significant opportunity for the growth of the mid-market segment in Dubai and by working with Hilton, a leader in the industry, more and more travellers will be able to experience award winning Hilton Garden Inn and Hampton by Hilton hospitality."
Hilton Garden Inn Bur Dubai and Hampton by Hilton Dubai Al Mina are both expected to open in early 2019, adding almost 500 additional rooms to Dubai's mid-market inventory.For all the latest travel news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
