Hilton Worldwide signed a management agreement to open an upper upscale Hilton hotel and conference center in Istanbul ’s Sisli district.

The property will be adjacent to the former Bomonti Beer Factory, an iconic building of significant heritage in the city center, which is currently undergoing restoration to become the focal point of a new visitor hub with extensive entertainment, dining and retail facilities; as well as a museum and arts center.

The hotel and conference center will be located in a striking newly built tower, spanning 35 floors and offering spectacular views across the European side to Asia. Located approximately three kilometres from Taksim Square, Hilton Istanbul Bomonti Hotel & Conference Center will be an ideal base for both corporate guests as well as the significant numbers of tourists visiting the city for its wealth of history, culture, art and entertainment.

Dave Horton, global head, Hilton Hotels & Resorts, said, “Hilton has a wonderful history in Istanbul, having operated here for more than 57 years. This new Hilton will be a shining example of striking design and functionality, coupled with a world-class conference center which will attract travellers from across the world.”

Featuring 829 bedrooms and suites, guests will be able to enjoy the upscale facilities of the executive lounge, as well as spa and fitness facilities including an indoor and outdoor swimming pool. A number of boutique stores will also feature in the hotel as well as iconic destination food and beverage options including an all day dining restaurant, lobby bar and spectacular roof top bar – set to become a destination for locals and guests alike. The highly regarded hospitality designer, GA Design of London , will be charged with providing and delivering the vision and design of the hotel’s interior.

This latest Turkish hotel signing adds to the significant momentum achieved by Hilton Worldwide in Istanbul, which now features six hotels across four brands, including the historic Hilton Istanbul which opened its doors in 1955 and the luxury Conrad Istanbul which is currently undergoing an extensive programme of refurbishment.
