Hilton today announced the opening of three hotels at Al Seef in Dubai under three of its industry-leading brands. In partnership with Dubai-based holding company Meraas and under the terms of the agreement, Hilton will operate Hampton by Hilton Dubai Al Seef, Canopy by Hilton Dubai Al Seef and Al Seef Heritage Hotel Dubai, Curio Collection by Hilton.

Owned by Meraas, the three hotels, which originally opened in 2018, are located at Al Seef, the bustling waterfront destination by Meraas, along the shore of Dubai Creek, and are now open under these Hilton brands.

Hampton by Hilton Dubai Al Seef offers thoroughly contemporary hotel spaces featuring modern artwork in the lobby and public areas, a stylish restaurant featuring free hot breakfast and a bright aesthetic that provides a place to relax and recharge with comfortable spaces.

The 200-room Canopy by Hilton Dubai Al Seef is located in the heart of old Dubai and is home to a Mediterranean restaurant and rooftop bar. The property will undergo minor changes to its public space in Q1 2020 to create the brand’s signature Canopy Central lobby experience.


Representing the very best of the traditions of Dubai, Al Seef Heritage Hotel Dubai, Curio Collection by Hilton reflects traditional Arabian style, design and detailing with contemporary service and facilities, along the banks of the Dubai Creek. Al Seef Heritage Hotel Dubai, Curio Collection by Hilton will offer 190 guest rooms, with Hampton by Hilton Dubai Al Seef hosting 150 rooms, while the Canopy by Hilton Dubai Al Seef will have 200 rooms.

Commenting on the opening of these hotels, Rudi Jagersbacher, Hilton’s President for the Middle East, Africa and Turkey said: “We are delighted to be adding these three spectacular hotels to our portfolio here in Dubai. Reflecting the best of both old and new Dubai, they are perfectly suited to our brand portfolio and are great additions to our existing properties in the city.”

Mukesh Sodani, Deputy CEO of Meraas, said: “To be collaborating with three Hilton brands is a testament to the diversity of the hospitality portfolio that we have developed and delivered over the past decade in Dubai. It’s also another example of how we continue to enhance the hospitality sector in Dubai and contribute to achieving the Emirate’s Tourism Vision 2020.”

“We are delighted to have Hilton as the new operator of our hotels and have every confidence their contribution will strengthen not only the services that we offer but also the overall performance of the business.”

The addition of these hotels to Hilton’s portfolio represents a milestone in Hilton’s continued growth and commitment to Dubai, as the company expects to operate some 50 hotels in UAE in the next five years or so, with more than half of these in Dubai.
