DoubleTree by Hilton to Debut in Morocco – Hotel Magazine

Hilton has signed an agreement with Marina Agadir to open DoubleTree by Hilton Marina Agadir Hotel & Residences – marking the DoubleTree by Hilton brand’s entry into the Moroccan market.

“Hilton’s hospitality has a wonderful legacy in Morocco. We are proud to be growing our portfolio here with nine hotels trading or under development,” said Patrick Fitzgibbon, Senior Vice President, Development, EMEA, Hilton. “The Moroccan debut of DoubleTree by Hilton in Agadir demonstrates the potential for branded hotels in destinations across the country – as we partner with investors to expand our portfolio and international visitor arrivals continue to increase.”

DoubleTree by Hilton Marina Agadir Hotel & Residences will be part of the Marina Agadir project offering direct access to the beach. Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, the hotel will feature 228 guestrooms, suites, and serviced apartments. Nearby, in the marina area, are a plethora of shops, restaurants, and cafes. The hotel is also close to the historic Oufella Ruins, where travellers can witness the city’s rich heritage.

As the tourism industry flourishes in Morocco, Marina Agadir is thrilled to partner with Hilton to open a DoubleTree by Hilton hotel in Agadir. 

“The hotel is in a prime location in Marina Agadir and will enhance the overall visitor experience with the world-renowned DoubleTree by Hilton brand and great dining, events, and leisure facilities,” said Zaid Ali, Chairman of Marina Agadir. 

DoubleTree by Hilton Marina Agadir Hotel & Residences will include an all-day dining restaurant with an outdoor terrace, a grab-and-go outlet, and four lounges/bars. The hotel will also offer meeting space across four rooms, a fitness centre, a kids club and a full-service spa.

“It is a delight to see DoubleTree by Hilton meet Moroccan hospitality as we sign our first hotel in Morocco,” added Shawn McAteer, Global Head, DoubleTree by Hilton. “For more than 50 years, DoubleTree by Hilton has been renowned for delivering a warm welcome to guests worldwide, and we look forward to extending that welcome to even more business and leisure travellers with this new property in Marina Agadir.”

The upcoming hotel will be located 27 kilometres from Agadir Al Massira Airport and roughly ten kilometres from the famous coastal destination of Taghazout.
