First Hilton Garden Inn Debuts in Middle East, Africa
The first Hilton Garden Inn property in the Middle East and Africa, the Hilton Garden Inn Riyadh Olaya in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, was unveiled this week by Christopher J. Nassetta, president and CEO of Hilton Worldwide, at a media roundtable.
The Hilton Garden Inn Riyadh Olaya is the first of many openings within the Strategic Development Agreement signed between Hilton and the Al Hokair Group, and is set to provide Hilton Worldwide with a significant presence across the key development market of Saudi Arabia.
Over the next five years, Hilton Worldwide and the Al Hokair Group plan to introduce Hilton Garden Inn hotels across the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, in locations such as Riyadh, Al Khobar, Dammam, Jubail, King Abdullah Economic City, Taif, Abha, Tabuk, Hail/ Buraydah and Yanbu.
The second Hilton Garden Inn is set to open in Riyadh (Al Muroj) in the fourth quarter of 2010. Hilton Garden Inn has made its foray into the Middle East in tandem with the business sector’s growth in demand.
