Hilton in talks with Al Habtoor to build more hotels in Dubai
Tuesday, Mar 06, 2012
Dubai: Hilton Worldwide is currently in talks with Al Habtoor Group for a number of hotel projects in Dubai, according to a senior executive at the US-based group.
Al Habtoor earlier this year said it would demolish one of Dubai’s oldest hotels — the Metropolitan — to redevelop the area as a tourism complex under a plan that will cost an estimated $1.3 billion.
“We are in discussions with Al Habtoor Group for elements of that project as it’s a massive one. Undoubtedly, we will be interested in pursuing the hotel elements of that, but nothing has been signed up as yet,” Ian Carter, Hilton Worldwide’s president for global operations, told Gulf News in an interview.
