Hilton completes dual-brand signing in Cairo


Hilton has announced the opening of the Hilton Cairo Heliopolis.

The hospitality company has also confirmed plans for the debut of its luxury brand Waldorf Astoria in Egypt later this year – once rebranded, this will be the company’s first Waldorf Astoria hotel in Africa. Hilton in addition has signed two management agreements with Gulf-Egypt for Hotels & Tourism (S.A.E) to operate Heliopolis Hotel & Towers Luxury Hotel under two distinct brands.

A 593-room upscale Hilton property is now welcoming guests alongside the 247-room Towers Luxury Hotel, which will rebrand as Waldorf Astoria Cairo following a renovation programme.

It is scheduled to be completed before the end of 2018 after a redesign of all 247 guestrooms and suites, a renovation of the spacious atrium lobby area, and the addition of a refined destination spa.

The hotel facilities include two ballrooms totaling 3000 square metres, an amphitheatre with built-in conference technology, 12 meeting rooms varying from 50 to 120 square metres, pre-function areas and a business centre.

The site’s location is just eight kilometres from New Cairo, a new city expected to host Egypt’s capital along with presidential HQ and ministries.

Both properties will become part of Hilton Honors.
