Hilton signs deal to take over Abu Dhabi hotel

Hilton Worldwide wil rebrand the 281-room Abu Dhabi Al Maqta as the Hilton Abu Dhabi Capital Grand later this summer. The hotel will undergo a series of brand changes before joining the Hilton Hotels & Resorts portfolio. It already has a 700-capacity grand ballroom with a separate 500-capacity function room, five large meeting rooms, two boardrooms and a VIP Majlis with private entrance.

Rudi Jagersbacher, president, Hilton Worldwide Middle East & Africa said: "We are delighted to have signed such a prestigious deal for this unique, quality hotel in Abu Dhabi and in an emerging business community."

The hotel also features two pools and seven restaurants and bars.

Rob Palleschi, global head, Hilton Hotels & Resorts said: "Hilton Hotels & Resorts is one of the longest serving international hotel brands in UAE and our proud heritage has served us well in Abu Dhabi since 1973.

"This latest signing is a worthy addition to our large Middle East portfolio and we look forward to welcoming the growing number of visitors to the UAE's capital city."
