This surge in development is set to make Saudi Arabia Hilton's largest pipeline market within the MENA region. It will also further strengthen Hilton’s position as a key player in the MENA hospitality sector.
Hilton's plans include introducing new brands like LXR Hotels & Resorts, Canopy by Hilton, Embassy Suites by Hilton, and Hampton by Hilton.
