Hilton signed a management agreement with an investment vehicle managed by Yamed Capital, one of Morocco’s leading real estate groups, to open a hotel under its lifestyle Canopy by Hilton brand.
The project will bring 158 room property to Casablanca. It will be part of ‘Metropolitan’, a brand-new mixed-use residential, retail and hotel project under development. Forming a central part of this development, Canopy by Hilton Casablanca Les Arènes will house three food and beverage outlets, four meeting rooms and one large function room, in addition to a gym, a spa and an outdoor pool.
The hotel is expected to start welcoming guests by 2024 and is the brand’s first property in Morocco and North Africa.
“Casablanca is Morocco’s financial and business capital, located at the heart of the country’s intercity road network. As such, choosing it to unveil Canopy by Hilton comes as an important step in Hilton’s plan to expand in Morocco,” said Carlos Khneisser, vice president of Development, Middle East and Africa, Hilton. “I am delighted that we have reached this agreement with Yamed Capital, a market leader in the real estate sector, to bring a brand-new hotel to the heart of the Metropolitan project in Les Arènes, Casablanca.”
Canopy by Hilton was launched in 2014 to appeal to travellers seeking locally inspired stays and wishing to immerse themselves in the culture and history of local neighborhoods. There are 13 Canopy hotels open around the globe and more than 41 under development across 14 countries and territories. Aiming to guarantee travelers unique and authentic experiences, Canopy by Hilton was first introduced in the Middle East and Africa region in late 2019, with the opening of Canopy by Hilton Dubai Al Seef.Add to Favorites
