Hilton expands brands in Nigeria

Hilton Tuesday announced the expansion of two of its global brands – Canopy by Hilton and Hilton Garden Inn – into Nigeria.

Hilton has signed an agreement with Hotel Signature Limited to open Canopy by Hilton Lagos Victoria Island, bringing the Canopy brand’s locally inspired hospitality to the country.

The global hospitality company has also signed an agreement with FIT Hospitality & Entertainment Limited, a subsidiary of FIT Group, for the affordable and upscale Hilton Garden Inn Enugu.

Carlos Khneisser, vice president, Development, Middle East and Africa, Hilton, said: “We are excited to announce the signing of Canopy by Hilton Lagos Victoria Island and Hilton Garden Inn Enugu.

“These new signings reaffirm Hilton’s commitment to Africa’s hospitality sector and confidence in Nigeria as a dynamic and growing market.

“Through our partnerships with Hotel Signature Limited and FIT Group, we will offer guests more choices and a differentiated experience, whilst ensuring reliable and friendly stays across the country.”

Canopy by Hilton Lagos Victoria Island will feature 176 beautifully designed guest rooms and suites, including executive and presidential suites, offering panoramic views and a locally inspired stay, a statement by the company said.

“Guests will enjoy an elevated, boutique experience with sophisticated design and bespoke food and beverage, including a café and a rooftop bar that promises breathtaking city and ocean vistas.

“For business and events, the hotel will offer 10 meeting rooms and a spacious 300-square-metre conference room. Leisure facilities include a state-of-the-art fitness centre and an outdoor swimming pool.

Canopy by Hilton Lagos Victoria Island will be situated in the heart of the most vibrant district of Lagos State, Victoria Island. Located on Ahmadu Bello Way, a prime arterial road offering stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean with direct access to the Eko Atlantic development, the hotel is designed to become a landmark destination for both leisure and business travellers alike,” it said.

Domingo Obende, CEO Hotel Signature Limited & Owner, Canopy by Hilton Lagos Victoria Island, said: “We are thrilled to partner with Hilton to bring the Canopy by Hilton brand to Nigeria. With its prime location, stunning views, and an array of amenities, we are confident that this hotel will deliver a locally inspired, high-end, and welcoming stay for guests while they experience the best of the neighbourhood.”

Hilton Garden Inn Enugu will house 150 guest rooms and suites, a lobby bar, a shop, an all-day dining restaurant, three flexible meeting rooms, a gym, and an outdoor pool. The hotel’s location in “Coal City” – known for its scenic views, cultural diversity, and cinematic backdrop as a preferred location for Nigerian filmmakers – makes it an ideal choice for guests seeking to experience the true essence of Nigeria.

Loretta Aniagolu, CEO FIT Group & Owner, Hilton Garden Inn Enugu, said: “Once open, Hilton Garden Inn Enugu will offer guests a unique hospitality experience. With its strategic location, state-of-the-art facilities, and close proximity to key attractions and transportation hubs, the hotel will provide guests with memorable and brighter stays that capture the essence of Nigeria’s vibrant culture and heritage.”

Canopy by Hilton Lagos Victoria Island and Hilton Garden Inn Enugu will join Hilton’s trading properties in Nigeria – Transcorp Hilton Abuja and Legend Hotel Lagos Airport, Curio Collection by Hilton, as well as the recently announced Koko Beach Resort Ilashe Lagos, Curio Collection by Hilton currently under development.
