Hilton Worldwide to open second Waldorf Astoria hotel in Dubai International Financial Centre

Hilton Worldwide will add a second Waldorf Astoria hotel to its collection in the Middle East, after it signed a management agreement with Ward Holdings. The hotel group will open this second hotel in Dubai with the launch of the Waldorf Astoria DIFC in autumn, 2017.

Located in the Dubai International Financial Centre on Al Saada Street, the new hotel will be part of a mixed-use residential, retail and office-space complex, and will have 247 guest rooms.

“I have long admired the role DIFC plays in the world of international investment, benefitting from its east meets west location and world-class trading framework.”

Explained Carlos Khneisser, Hilton Worldwide’s Vice President of development for the Middle East and North Africa. Mr Khneisser also commented:

"As an iconic luxury brand originating from New York, another centre of global finance, I am delighted that we will welcome Waldorf Astoria to this international hub.”

Waldorf Astoria DIFC will have facilities including restaurants, a spa and wellness centre, a grand ballroom, and four meeting rooms. The Dubai hotel will be the third Waldorf Astoria-branded hotel to open in the United Arab Emirates, after the opening of Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah, and Waldorf Astoria Palm Jumeirah in Dubai. The hotel will join a network of the brand’s properties in destinations including Amsterdam, New York and Beijing.

Hilton Worldwide operates more than 3,750 luxury hotels throughout 84 countries across the world under 13 brands including Conrad Hotels & Resorts, Canopy by Hilton, Curio – A Collection by Hilton, Hilton Hotels & Resorts, DoubleTree by Hilton, Embassy Suites Hotels, Hilton Garden Inn, Hampton Inn, Homewood Suites by Hilton, Home2 Suites by Hilton, Hilton Grand Vacations, and Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts.

Dubai is one of seven United Arab Emirates in the Middle East and vibrant destination for business and leisure travellers due to its all-year-round sunshine and soaring temperatures, unique architecture and manmade attractions, and its diverse attractions including huge malls, theme parks and sports centres.

The emirate is home to the three artificial Palm Islands that stretch into the Persian Gulf off the sandy shoreline, as well as the Dubai Marina, Dubai Creek, Jumeirah Mosque.
