Al Habtoor City hotels rebranded as Hilton properties

Al Habtoor City hotels, three properties set in a complex in the heart of Dubai, are now all part of the global Hilton Hotels and Resorts brand. These were formerly run by Marriott.

In line with this Habtoor-Hilton agreement, which took effect in the beginning of August 2018, the three hotels will be rebranded as follows:

1. The St. Regis Dubai is now Habtoor Palace, LXR Hotels & Resorts

A 234-guest room luxury hotel will operate as an independent property as it joins the upcoming ultra-luxury collection brand from Hilton, LXR Hotels & Resorts. Ideally located on Sheikh Zayed Road and just steps from the Dubai Water Canal, the elegant Habtoor Palace features beaux-arts architecture throughout all guest rooms and public spaces.

2. W Dubai Al Habtoor City is now V Hotel, Curio Collection by Hilton

The first hotel in the UAE to join Curio Collection by Hilton, a global upper upscale portfolio of more than 50 hotels and resorts lauded for their distinct culture and spirit, V Hotel joins 10 pipeline and trading properties in the region. Featuring 356 guest rooms, the property represents next generation art and design and is also the location for Dubai’s first resident show, La Perle by Dragone.

3. The Westin Dubai Al Habtoor City is now HHilton Dubai Al Habtoor City

Centrally situated on both Sheikh Zayed Road and the Dubai Water Canal featuring 1,004 guest rooms, including 142 suites, this hotel under the flagship Hilton Hotels & Resorts brand becomes the largest in Hilton’s Middle East & Africa portfolio. Hilton Dubai Al Habtoor City builds on the heritage of Hilton Hotels & Resorts in the country since the brand’s first property opened in 1971, and joins nine properties open across the UAE and nearly 50 in the pipeline across the region.

“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,” said Mohammed Al Habtoor, Vice Chairman and CEO of the Al Habtoor Group.

He continued, “The announcement increases our partnership with Hilton from five hotels to eight hotels around the world.”
