Hilton Worldwide announced it will build two new properties in Egypt, which will represent the 19th and 20th Hilton hotels to open in the country — the largest of any hospitality provider.

The new Hilton Giza Pyramids, set to open in 2016, will command panoramic views of the Pyramids and the Sphinx. The hotel's 390 rooms include 18 suites, and other amenities include a large function room, two boardrooms, four meeting rooms, a business center, large health club, spa and an outdoor swimming pool. It will be located in an exclusive residential and commercial district South of Cairo.

A 195-room Hilton Alexandria King's Ranch Resort, 40 kilometers West of Alexandria, is expected to open at the end of 2013. It will be near Borg Al Arab International Airport and cater to both business and leisure travelers in Egypt's second largest city. Amenities at this property will include a large function room, four meeting rooms, a business center, executive lounge, and both an outdoor and indoor pool.

Hilton's other properties in Egypt are located in Hurghada, Luxor, Sharm El Sheikh, Taba, Marsa Alam, Dahab and Nuweiba. They also have a luxury Conrad Hotel in the capital city of Cairo.
