Hilton invests $50 million into African expansion

Hilton has committed a total of $50m (£37.8m) over the next five years towards the Hilton Africa Growth Initiative to support the continued expansion of its Sub-Saharan African portfolio.

These funds are intended to support the conversion of around 100 hotels (roughly 20,000 rooms) in multiple African markets into Hilton branded properties, focusing mainly on its flagship Hilton Hotels & Resorts brand, DoubleTree by Hilton and the recently launched Curio Collection by Hilton.

Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president, development, Europe, Middle East and Africa, Hilton said: “Hilton remains committed to growth in Africa having been present on the continent for more than 50 years.

“The range of brands we have at our disposal allows owners the flexibility to pick the right fit for their property.”

He added: “We have already deployed this initiative in the signing of two hotels – our first DoubleTree by Hilton property in Kenya, and our first hotel in Rwanda, and expect to be able to announce further additions before the end of this year.”
