Hilton is partnering with Gulf-Egypt for Hotels & Tourism to manage the Heliopis Hotel and the Towers Luxury Hotel in Cairo. The 593-room Heliopis Hotel now operates as the Hilton Cairo Heliopis.

The hotel group also plans to rebrand and renovate the 247-room Towers Luxury Hotel as the Waldorf Astoria Cairo—the first of the brand in Africa. The guestroom and the lobby renovations are scheduled to be completed at the end of 2018, along with the addition of a spa. The dual-branded complex is near Cairo's airport and New Cairo.

Hilton has had a presence in Egypt for 60 years, and the new hotel is the group's sixth property in Cairo. Meanwhile, the upcoming Waldorf Astoria will join the brand's 30-hotel portfolio. 
 
The dual-branded property is part of Hilton Worldwide's plans to further expand its presence in Egypt with a development pipeline of seven hotels in the next five years. The new properties will add 2,500 guestrooms to Hilton's portfolio. The hotel group currently operates 17 hotels in the country, with a presence in 6th of October City, Hurghada, Sharm El Sheikh, Alexandria, Luxor, Cairo and Marsa Alam. Hilton’s new hotels are set to expand this portfolio 40 percent by the end of 2022.
