Al Habtoor City’s newly rebranded hotels are seeing a “very healthy increase in business” compared to last year, the company announced.
Al Habtoor Group ended its agreement with the Marriott Group from the end of July this year, and rebranded the hotels as Hilton.
Under a franchise agreement signed with Hilton, effective from August 1, the three hotels in Habtoor City were renamed as Habtoor Palace, LXR Hotels & Resorts, V Hotel, Curio Collection by Hilton and Hilton Dubai Al Habtoor City.
The group retained management of the properties under its Habtoor Hospitality arm.
In the months since the rebranding, the group said Al Habtoor City Hotel Collection has enjoyed “considerable growth in its results and a positive forecast compared to the same period last year”.
“As the year end nears, Al Habtoor City’s hotels are witnessing a very healthy increase in the business ahead of the upcoming holiday season and the first half of 2019 in comparison with the same period of last year, with a double-digit growth in the occupancy rates,” Al Habtoor Group said in a statement.
Khalaf Ahmad Al Habtoor, founding chairman of Al Habtoor Group said: “Al Habtoor City, Hotel Collection is the crown jewel of the hotel offering in Dubai. There is nothing like it in the world. I am pleased to see that the five-star complex is on the right trajectory to finding its place as the ultimate luxury destination in the region.”
Rahim Abu Omar, newly appointed chief operating officer - Hospitality Division, added: “Our partnership with Hilton, the most recognised name in hospitality worldwide, has provided us with a platform to the world, allowing our teams to access more than 82 million Global Hilton Honors Members who now get to enjoy our Habtoor Hospitality home-grown experience enhanced with Hilton standards,” concluded Abu Omar.
Collectively, the three hotels offer nearly 1,600 rooms, 18 restaurants and lounges, two spas, 34 meeting and banqueting spaces and three ballrooms.
The heart of the multi-use development features a permanent state-of-the-art, high-tech theatre housing the region’s first resident show – La Perle by Dragone, created by director Franco Dragone.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.
