Hilton Garden Inn Blossoms in the UAE
Arrival of the Hilton Garden Inn Brand into UAE Celebrated with the Creation of an Edible Dubai Skyline, Made From 1,500 of the Brand’s Signature Waffles
DUBAI, UAE - Hilton Worldwide (NYSE: HLT) today celebrated the arrival of its award winning, mid-scale brand - Hilton Garden Inn into the UAE, with the unveiling of an edible Dubai skyline - created using the brand's signature breakfast waffles.
The sculpture, created from 1,500 waffles and measuring three by four metres, took Dubai-based food artist Mark Ranasinghe almost 40 hours to construct and imitates eight iconic landmarks in the city, including the Burj Khalifa.
The first of three new hotels to the Emirate's burgeoning hospitality market - the 183-room Hilton Garden Inn Dubai Al Muraqabat - officially opened in the busy heart of Deira on 22 October. Hilton Garden Inn will add an additional 552 new rooms over the next two months with the opening of the 182-room Hilton Garden Inn Dubai Al Mina, located between the well-known districts of Bur Dubai and Jumeirah; and the 370-room Hilton Garden Inn Mall of the Emirates.
Today, with more than 650 hotels across the world, the brand offers quality services and amenities for smart, value-conscious travellers, enabling them to sleep deep, stay fit, eat well and work smart while on the road.
Mark Nogal, regional head, Hilton Garden Inn EMEA said, "We are excited to introduce the Hilton Garden Inn brand into the UAE for the first time, with three impressive Dubai properties due to open in the next two months and another six in the pipeline. With mounting demand for mid-scale accommodation following Dubai's naming as the Expo 2020 host city, we believe the arrival of Hilton Garden Inn will play an essential role in the changing face of the city's hospitality infrastructure."
All Hilton Garden Inn guests will see why Life's Better at the GardenTM through amenities offered at each Hilton Garden Inn location, including complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, 24-hour business center, a state-of-the-art fitness center, and an outdoor pool. All three hotels also offer flexible meeting spaces with state of the art facilities.
Guests will be able to choose from The Garden Grille & Bar ®, which offers a full cooked-to-order breakfast, lunch, dinner and room service, The Garden Café - serving snacks and drinks - as well as The Pavilion Pantry®, which is open 24 hours and features a complete selection of salty snacks, sweet treats, cold beverages, and frozen, microwaveable packaged items.
Each guest room will boast the brand's signature bedding featuring fresh, white duvets and crisp linens; a spacious and clutter-free work desk with an ergonomic desk chair; and an in-room "hospitality center" complete with a mini fridge including complimentary water, as well as tea and coffee maker.
