Hilton has signed two management agreements with Gulf-Egypt for Hotels & Tourism (S.A.E) to operate Heliopolis Hotel & Towers Luxury Hotel under two distinct brands, Hilton and Waldorf Astoria.

The dual-brand property is located in Heliopolis, one of Cairo’s prime residential areas and home to Egypt’s diplomatic and presidential offices. A 593-room Hilton Cairo Heliopolis is now welcoming guests. The 247-room Towers Luxury Hotel will rebrand as Waldorf Astoria Cairo, the first Waldorf Astoria hotel in Africa. The renovation is scheduled to be completed before the end of 2018.

Hilton declares to have a continuous presence in Egypt for more than 60 years and expects to strengthen its current presence across the country with seven more hotels in the next five years.
