Hilton Garden Inn Arrives In UAE At The Double

The brace of hotels will meet the growing need for affordable accommodation in the run-up to Expo 2020

Dubai and the UAE have waited a while for their first Hilton Garden Inn – and now two are set to come at once.

Hilton Worldwide today announced a deal with wasl Hospitality which will see one open on Al Mina Road, close to Port Rashid, and the other on Al Muraqabat in Deira, by 2015. The mid-priced hotels will be almost identical in size, with Al Mina set to have 182 rooms, and Al Muraqabat 183 rooms.

Hesham Al Qassim, CEO, Wasl Asset Management Group, parent company of wasl Hospitality, said the mid-priced sector of the market will become increasingly important following Dubai’s naming as host city for Expo 2020.

“We anticipate greater demand for four-star accommodation across the city once the countdown to the global exhibition begins and hotels, such as those announced today, will play an increasingly important role in the city’s future hospitality infrastructure,” he said.

Both properties will contain a range of amenities including a health club, outdoor pool, a business centre, meeting space and free hi-speed internet. F&B options will include an all-day dining option and lobby lounge.

Rudi Jagersbacher, president, Hilton Worldwide Middle East & Africa said today’s deal means Hilton has the prospect of operating five brands in the UAE by 2015.

He said it underlines Hilton’s desire to support all sectors of the UAE tourism market, from the up-market Waldorf Astoria and Conrad hotels to the more-affordable Garden Inn brand.
