Hilton Group’s Conceptual Hotels near Nigeria’s International Airport

With less than 1,000 rooms and 2 hotels at the end of 2019, the Hilton Group has a relatively limited presence within Nigeria. According to the W Hospitality Group 2019 Hotel Pipeline Study, Hilton was planning over 55 hotels and 11,209 rooms across the African continent. The only other hotel groups with a larger pipeline of African rooms at the time were Marriott International and Accor, with 6,905 rooms and 13,543 rooms respectively. This leaderboard, however, shuffles significantly when considered on a national level.

Two hotels within the Hilton’s pipeline are the Lagos Airport Hilton Hotel and the Hilton Hotel Lagos, which might no longer be branded as a Hilton due to the amount of time it has taken for it to come on stream. In our experience, these two hotels are often mistaken for one another. See below for a brief factsheet differentiating the two.
