Hilton has opened its largest Hampton hotel to date, with a 420-room property located close to Dubai International airport.

The Hampton by Hilton Dubai Airport is the first under the brand in the Middle East, and features an outdoor infinity pool, rooftop gym, free wifi and hot breakfast, Digital Key-enabled rooms, and flexible work and social zones in the lobby area.

The hotel is situated on Damascus Street, around 15 minutes’ drive north east of Dubai International airport.

The property is now the largest under the Hampton brand, taking over the mantle from the 357-room Hampton by Hilton London Stansted Airport which opened in 2017.

It is also the first Hilton hotel in the Arabian Peninsula to employ a female general manager, with Nayla Chowdhury commenting:

“I’m excited to be bringing Hampton by Hilton’s globally recognised, authentic approach to hospitality to the Middle East and driving its success with our very first regional property debuting right here in the UAE.

“Hilton has played an instrumental role in my career journey and I hope to inspire other young women who dream about pursuing a career path in hospitality to make the most of the opportunities available to them in the industry,” said Chowdhury.

“Located just a few kilometres away from the airport, next to the bustling DAFZA business district, and backed by the seal of quality that the Hilton name represents, Hampton by Hilton Dubai Airport will redefine the mid-market hospitality experience.”
