Hilton Worldwide plans two further Dubai properties

Hilton Worldwide is to open two hotels in Dubai, with both expected to debut in early 2019.

Hilton Garden Inn Bur Dubai, to be located in Dubai Creek, will offer 292 rooms and will house a large multi-functional meeting room alongside a health club and swimming pool. 

The 206-room Hampton by Hilton Dubai Al Mina will be located near Dubai International Airport, Dubai Creek and Port Rashid and will also have fitness facilities, including a gym and swimming pool. 

Rudi Jagersbacher, president, Middle East and Africa at 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. Travellers to the UAE are increasingly looking for a diverse range of accommodation options, be it luxury, upscale or mid-market."
