Hilton has signed a management agreement with the Al Marwan Group to debut a new DoubleTree hotel in Sharjah.
The hotel, which includes an all-day dining restaurant, lobby café, indoor pool, two gyms and treatment rooms, will be Hilton’s second property in the emirate following the Hilton Sharjah, which opened in 2011.
“Although less well known than its neighbors, the Emirate of Sharjah is a well frequented destination for industrial and GCC tourists,” said Carlos Khneisser, vice president of development, Middle East & North Africa, Hilton.
“Responsible for nearly half of the UAE’s oil output, the Emirate is a buzz with international trade and traffic. Coupled with burgeoning demand from cultural GCC tourists, Sharjah is a prominent location to introduce our DoubleTree by Hilton brand.”
DoubleTree by Hilton Sharjah Waterfront Hotel & Suites is located in the city centre, opposite Al Majaz Waterfront. The waterfront area is one of the Emirate’s major tourist attractions.
“From thoughtful touches and friendly service to our warm DoubleTree Cookie welcome, DoubleTree by Hilton offers the finest hospitality in the world,” said Dianna Vaughan, senior vice president and global head, DoubleTree by Hilton.
“Coupled with the hotel’s terrific facilities, this will be one of Sharjah city centre’s finest properties.”
