Hilton expands in Saudi Arabia

A new Hilton Garden Inn in Saudi Arabia’s Yanbu City will join the six properties of Hilton Worldwide’s mid-scale brand already under development in the kingdom.

Expected to open in early 2017, the new-build hotel is to be developed in the Red Sea port city, known for its history as a hub for trade, industry and commerce.

The mid-market property will feature 239 guest rooms, situated in a mixed-use development of leisure, residential and retail units and will be located in the harbour village part of Yanbu’s waterfront.

The hotel will also have 1,100 square metres of meeting space, as well as leisure facilities including fitness centres, an outdoor swimming pool and retail outlets.

Hilton Worldwide is expanding its mid-market Hilton Garden Inn brand across the GCC, said Rudi Jagersbacher, President, Middle East and Africa for Hilton Worldwide. “Saudi Arabia has our largest pipeline anywhere in the Middle East with 23 hotels under development across the brand portfolio,” he added.
