The news follows the conclusion of a landmark year for Hilton in Morocco which saw it re-establish a presence in the country in March 2016, with the opening of Hilton Garden Inn Tanger City Center.
The mid-scale Hilton Garden Inn brand will now be soon represented in Morocco’s largest city, with construction set to begin this year.
Hilton Garden Inn Casablanca Sidi Maarouf will consist of an initial 118 guest rooms with space available on site for further expansion. The hotel forms part of a mixed use development with a 550 suare metre ballroom and Moroccan-oriental restaurant also to be built in the vicinity.
The Hilton Garden Inn will contain three dining options on property, in addition to another 300 square metres of event space to the complex. It is forecast that the hotel may welcome its first guests in 2021.
“Casablanca is a market we’ve been looking at for some time and we’re confident that we’ve now identified the right partner and the right location for our debut property,” comments Carlos Khneisser, VP, Development, MENA, Hilton Worldwide.
“Sidi Maarouf is rapidly establishing itself as not only the gateway to the city center, with the construction of its new suspension bridge, but as a significant business district in its own right.”
