Hilton aims to boost investments in Turkey

Hurriyet Daily News - Hilton is planning to boost its investments in Turkey with new hotels in the Central Anatolian province of Konya, as well as in other locations, according to a top company official.

“There will be five DoubleTree hotels under the Hilton brand open in Turkey within the next year,” said DoubleTree by Hilton Vice President Gary Steffen recently during a visit to the chain's IstanbuI-Moda location. “The Istanbul-Moda Doubletree by Hilton is the first hotel to be opened by any brand within the Hilton Worldwide organization on the Asian side of the city of Istanbul. So, this opening is extremely important for us, along with our network of other DoubleTree by Hilton hotels that are open or will soon open," said Steffen. Hilton Worldwide has had a presence in Turkey since 1955, with the iconic Hilton Istanbul.
