Hilton to take over operations of the three hotels in Al Habtoor City
All three hotels are getting brand new names…
After it was announced that hotel chain Marriott would no longer operate the three hotels in Habtoor City, speculation rose as to who would take over. However at a press conference today, the Al Habtoor Group have confirmed that Hilton will take over operations at all three venues.
The St Regis Dubai, The W and The Westin will all be renamed. The St Regis will be renamed Habtoor Palace – LXR Hotels and Resorts, The W will become the V Hotel – Curio Collection by Hotel, and The Westin will be renamed as Hilton Dubai Al Habtoor City.
It is understood that the restaurants, bars and clubs within all three hotels will remain the same, and guests at each of the three properties will be able to earn Hilton Honors points for their stays from August 2018 onwards.
Mohammed Al Habtoor said: “We are pleased to extend our partnership with Hilton to three additional hotel properties at Al Habtoor City, our flagship hospitality, leisure and residential development located in the heart of Dubai. This is a record transition into a new portfolio of brands, a testament to the strong relationship and trust between Al Habtoor Group and Hilton. The announcement today increases our partnership with Hilton from five hotels to eight hotels around the world.”
Meanwhile Marriott already has one Westin hotel in Dubai’s Mina Seyahi, and is set to open W Dubai The Palm this September. No indication as to whether another St Regis will be added to the portfolio has been given.
