The decision to rebrand these properties as Habtoor Palace, LXR Hotels & Resorts, V Hotel, Curio Collection by Hilton and Hilton Dubai Al Habtoor City was unveiled at a ceremony held at Al Habtoor City, today. The announcement of the deal comes after a recent statement that the Al Habtoor Group plans to expand its Habtoor Hospitality-management portfolio.

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.”

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

Ian Carter said, “The addition of these three properties is great news for Hilton and strengthens a strategic partnership with Al Habtoor Group which spans across several markets internationally. Our portfolio will now see more than 5,000 rooms open by the end of the year in Dubai, a destination that ranks alongside global powerhouses such as London, Paris and New York in terms of annual visitor numbers.”

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.

V Hotel, Curio Collection by Hilton

Khalaf Ahmad Al Habtoor, Founding Chairman of Al Habtoor Group concluded: “Dubai is a safe haven for tourism and investment. The decision of Hilton to choose Dubai as one of the first locations for its upcoming luxury collection brand is a confirmation of Dubai and the UAE's robustness and appeal.”
