Hilton Worldwide recently announced signing of a management agreement with Ward Holdings to open a Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts property in Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC).

Waldorf Astoria Dubai International Financial Centre is expected to welcome guests in Autumn of 2017.

“Sound fundamentals underpin our story in the Middle East, where we have seen exceptional growth in locations tailored for both leisure and business travellers,” said Carlos Khneisser, vice president of development, Middle East and North Africa for Hilton Worldwide.

Forming part of a mixed-use residential, retail and office-space development, Waldorf Astoria Dubai International Financial Centre will feature 247 guest rooms, as well as a range of upscale dining options, spa and wellness facilities.  There will also be space for MICE events with a grand ballroom and a further four meeting rooms.

Across the Middle East, Hilton Worldwide is rapidly expanding its portfolio of mid-market, upscale and luxury properties.  In 2015, milestones included opening of three Hilton Garden Inn hotels in Dubai, signing of an agreement for the first Hampton by Hilton in the Middle East; as well as confirmation of the first Curio with The Rosemont Hotel & Residences.
