Hilton has signed four new hotels in Turkey under its DoubleTree by Hilton and Hampton by Hilton brands, bringing the group to 90 hotels open and under development in the market. 

The additions also push Hilton's current development pipeline totals to 4,000 guestrooms in the country on top of the 11,000 currently operating. The new Hilton properties will also expand the hotel stocks of Gaziantep, Antalya, Afyonkarahisar and Sakarya. Here are the new hotels coming to Turkey by 2020. 

DoubleTree by Hilton Gaziantep

The 108-room DoubleTree by Hilton Gaziantep is the first on the list slated to open in the first half of 2018. The new DoubleTree will operate as a franchise by owner Ak_A Yatirim Turizm Otelcilik on behalf of Hilton. The hotel is not only near the city center, but also one of Gaziantep's organized industrial zones.  It is also close to major hospitals, office blocks and government offices, such as the Gaziantep Chamber of Commerce and the Gaziantep Directorate of Public Health, and leisure attractions, such as Forum Gaziantep Mall and the Zeugma Mosaic Museum.
