Hilton’s Hampton by Hilton and wasl Asset Management Group, the Dubai-based real estate company, have celebrated the hotel brand’s Middle East debut with the opening of Hampton by Hilton Dubai Airport.

The 420-room hotel is the world’s largest Hampton by Hilton to date and brings Hampton by Hilton’s signature value-added services and amenities for the first time to the region including a free breakfast, a 24/7 business centre and complimentary Wi-Fi.

Hampton by Hilton Dubai Airport also boasts a large infinity pool and a rooftop gym, a statement said.

“This new launch is a testament of our continuous partnership with Hilton. The new development will add to our existing portfolio of hospitality projects across Dubai which will also help diversify the city’s hospitality landscape in line with the Government of Dubai’s vision of increasing the number of affordable offerings for guests,” said Hesham Al Qassim, CEO of wasl Asset Management Group.

Rudi Jagersbacher, area president – Middle East, Africa, and Turkey, added: “With Dubai’s vision of welcoming 20 million tourists annually to the emirate by 2020, diversifying its hospitality offering has become a major priority for the travel and tourism sector.

"Today’s travellers are increasingly looking for affordable hospitality without compromising on quality. They want a hotel in a well-connected location, with clean and modern rooms, free Wi-Fi, and friendly, reliable, quality service. This is precisely what the Hampton by Hilton brand offers.”

Hampton by Hilton Dubai Airport also welcomes Nayla Chowdhury, the first appointed Hilton female general manager in the Arabian Peninsula.
