Hilton is to open its largest Hampton hotel to date, with the launch of a 420-room property near Dubai International airport.

The Hampton by Hilton Dubai Airport will be the brand’s first property in the Middle East.

The hospitality company said that it reinforces the brand’s commitment to international growth, driven by growings its efforts in China and Latin America while strengthening its reach in the US and Europe.


“With Dubai’s vision of welcoming 20 million tourists annually to the emirate by 2020, diversifying its hospitality offering has become a major priority for the travel and tourism sector,” said Rudi Jagersbacher, Area President – Middle East, Africa, and Turkey.

“Today’s travellers are increasingly looking for affordable hospitality without compromising on quality. They want a hotel in a well-connected location, with clean and modern rooms, free Wi-Fi, and a friendly, reliable, quality service. This is precisely what the Hampton by Hilton brand offers.”

The Hilton hotel will also be the first in the Arabian Peninsula to employ a female general manager, Nayla Chowdhury.

She said: “I’m excited to be bringing Hampton by Hilton’s globally recognised, authentic approach to hospitality to the Middle East and driving its success with our very first regional property debuting right here in the UAE.

“Hilton has played an instrumental role in my career journey and I hope to inspire other young women who dream about pursuing a career path in hospitality to make the most of the opportunities available to them in the industry.”

The hotel will feature a state-of-the-art rooftop gym with panoramic views of the Dubai skyline, a large infinity pool and a fully licensed bar.
