Hilton to Open 636 Room Conrad Hotel in Macau

Hilton Worldwide and Sands China announced their franchise agreement in opening a Conrad Hotel at Cotai Central, Macau.

Scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2012, the Conrad Macau will have 636 rooms and joins the other Conrad hotels that are under construction in Guangzhou, Dalian, Beijing, Tianjin, Suzhou, Qingdao, and Xiamen. There are a total of 18 Conrad Hotels & Resorts scheduled to open within the next four years.

Hilton Worldwide Senior VP for Development in Middle East and Asia Pacific Andrew Clough said,

“This is a key project for us as it marks the entry of the Conrad brand, one of Hilton Worldwide’s luxury segment brands, into an exciting new market like Macau. To be able to do this on this with a well-respected hospitality company such as Sands China Ltd. which has a deep understanding of the luxury segment, is indeed beneficial to the brand and we believe the partnership will deliver mutual benefits to both corporations.”

Edward Tracy, President and CEO of Sands China, also expressed their excitement at this partnership and on bringing the very first Conrad hotel to Macau. Tracy believes the partnership will further cement Macau’s reputation as a premier tourist destination in the region.
