Hilton opens Heliopolis property, schedules Waldorf Astoria for later this year

The new 593-room Hilton Cairo Heliopolis began welcoming guests yesterday as part of Hilton Worldwide’s plan to expand in Egypt with 1,000 hotel rooms in 2018, Al Shorouk reports. The company has also confirmed plans to re-open the currently-standing 247-room Towers Luxury Hotel as Africa’s first Waldorf Astoria later this year. Hilton has signed two management agreements with Gulf-Egypt for Hotels & Tourism to operate both hotels under two different brands. Hilton Worldwide said its revenue per available room (RevPAR) in the Middle East and Africa has grown thanks to “continued strength in Egypt,” according to Reuters.
