HILTON Worldwide opened its first hotel in Egypt in 1959 when it was the first international hotel company to have a presence in the country. More than 50 years later, the company is the largest hotel chain in Egypt with 18 properties, approximately 7,000 bedrooms and over 8,000 team members. Hilton Worldwide has more hotels in Egypt than any other country in the Middle East and Africa region.
As the pre-eminent hospitality provider in the region, the Hilton Worldwide portfolio of properties in Egypt incorporates many styles and offerings but all share the well-defined, company hallmarks of top quality facilities and high standards of service. The properties properties include styles and features to suit every preference and taste.

As testament to the quality and universal appeal of Hilton Worldwide hotels in Egypt, a trio of properties have been recognised and awarded with notable accolades. Conrad Cairo and Hilton Sharm El Sheikh Farouz were honoured with TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards for 2012. Meanwhile, Hilton Luxor Resort & Spa was proud to also be honoured with seven TripAdvisor awards including Relaxation and Best Service.
