Hilton Worldwide announces line-up of hotel firsts for Africa

Hilton Worldwide has announced new properties and extensions in three African countries at the African Hotel Investment Forum (AHIF), continuing its commitment to expanding across the continent and doubling its footprint from 39 hotel to more than 80 in the next 3-5 years.

Among the new hotels agreed is Africa’s first modular build hotel, the 280 guestroom Hilton Garden Inn in the Ghanaian capital of Accra, a concept that Hilton first premiered in 2014 through a partnership with CIMC Modular Building Systems. Other deals see the creation of Africa’s tallest hotel in Nairobi, while Hilton builds on its industry leading airport hotel legacy with an extension to the recently signed Legend Curio at Lagos Airport. Hilton will manage all three properties as it continues to expand its managed hotel portfolio.
