Hilton has announced its first property to join soon-to-launch luxury collection LXR Hotels & Resorts. The 234-room Habtoor Palace in Dubai will operate as an independent property within the collection when the new brand launches.
The hotel was part of deal Hilton struck with Dubai-based Al Habtoor Group to rebrand three hotels via a new franchise agreement. The other two properties include the 356-room V Hotel Dubai, Curio Collection by Hilton, which is the first hotel for the collection in United Arab Emirates; and the 1,004-room Hilton Dubai Al Habtoor City.
“We are very happy to welcome three top hotels in Dubai to the Hilton family, and to announce that Habtoor Palace will be one of the first properties to join Hilton’s new luxury collection brand, LXR Hotels & Resorts and look forward to unveiling additional details about this exciting brand in the coming months,” a Hilton spokesperson said in an email to Boutique Design.
Habtoor Palace, LXR Hotels & Resorts, is located along the banks of the Dubai Water Canal and features impressive Beaux-Arts architecture with a grand staircase, stylish chandeliers and curated artwork. The hotel also includes multiple food and beverage outlets including a steakhouse; a wellness spa; fitness center; ample meeting space with ballroom; and a garden.
