“We’re excited to bring Hilton’s renowned approach to hospitality to one of Turkey’s busiest business districts, where work, leisure, and culture come together to offer visitors a truly immersive experience,” said Ozkan Alkan, general manager, Hilton Istanbul Maslak. “Our hotel offers the perfect environment where guests can truly connect with fellow travellers, business leaders or co-workers and develop meaningful connections. Guests will enjoy the hotel’s spacious, contemporary rooms and exceptional amenities for hosting meetings and events, including an exquisite starlit rooftop venue with sweeping views of the city.”
Home to offices of some of the world’s largest multinational companies, as well as sports arenas, music halls, and designer brands, Maslak offers visitors the perfect combination of business, leisure, and entertainment. The booming Istanbul district is one of the busiest commercial hubs in Turkey, which continues to be a sought-after destination by both holiday-seekers and business travellers because of its immersive culture, beautiful land and seascapes, and role as a global business hub.
Hilton’s continuous expansion in Turkey is a reflection of the country’s bolstering tourism sector growth, which in turn has driven the demand for quality accommodation. According to Turkey’s state news agency, Anadolu, the country hosted 32.4 million foreign visitors in 2017, a 28 per cent increase from the previous year, and is expected to see a record high of 40 million tourists in 2018, with its tourism generated income climbing over USD $30 billion by end of the year.(1) Both the country and the city of Istanbul have been ranked among the world’s top MICE destinations because of their place on the map as a bridge between East and West.(2),(3)
