A contract has been signed for the opening of DoubleTree by Hilton Sharjah Tilal Mall at Cityscape Global.
The hotel, which is DoubleTree by Hilton’s second property in the emirate, was revealed at a management agreement signing ceremony between Hilton and Tilal Properties at the event in DWTC.
Carlos Khneisser, Hilton vice-president for development in the Middle East, North Africa and Turkey, said: “Initiatives such as Sharjah’s Tourism Vision 2021, which aims to attract more than 10 million tourists by 2021, are drawing ever more visitors to Sharjah.
“The emirate’s reputation as a centre for Emirati culture, as well as the city’s importance to the economy of the UAE, make Sharjah a prosperous market to welcome DoubleTree by Hilton.”
The property will open in Tilal Mall in Sharjah in 2021, with the hotel offering 200 guest rooms. The new hotel will adjoin Tilal Mall, set to become one of Sharjah’s largest shopping complexes when it opens before the end of 2020.
The mall is part of the wider Tilal City project – a mixed-use community located on the Emirates Road, includes some 2,000 residential plots, offices, retail stores, open parks, educational institutions and community facilities.
Sheikh Sultan bin Ahmed Al Qasimi, chairman of Tilal Properties, said: “Since it was launched in 2014, Tilal City has received large-scale responses from investors and strategic business partners, making our recent unveil and partnership with a global brand such as Hilton, a testament to our continuity and sustainability of this growth.
“The DoubeTree by Hilton Tilal Mall, as well as the unveiling of Tilal Mall during Cityscape Global Dubai 2016, all fall within our mission to address the growing demand in Sharjah’s upscale property and tourism sectors.”
