ABU DHABI - Hilton Abu Dhabi has been selected as one of the Top 10 Hotels in the Middle East by the Condé Nast Traveler as part of its Readers Choice Awards 2012. The annual list, established in 1988, is one of the industry's most trusted yardsticks of guests experience at hotels in various markets.

With 327 elegant rooms and suites overlooking the Arabian Gulf, Hilton Abu Dhabi is one of the cornerstones of the Abu Dhabi hotel industry. The hotel, a landmark on Abu Dhabi Corniche, scored high with guests for its high service standards as well as its location.

This is a great honour and I want to congratulate Wolfgang Maier and his team at Hilton Abu Dhabi for their great work," said Rudi Jagersbacher, president, Hilton Worldwide, Middle East & Africa.

Hilton Abu Dhabi is home to over 15 restaurants, lounges and bars including the famed trio - Hemingway's, Vasco's and BOCCA - which has attracted a loyal client base of local and regional patrons. The hotel also offers modern business and MICE facilities and can cater to conventions, social gatherings and weddings for two to 2,000 people in a choice of 14 versatile indoor and outdoor function rooms and venues. The Hiltonia Beach Club features a white sandy beach, three swimming pools and water slides, a luxurious spa, a modern fitness center and a range of activities including tennis, yoga and water sports with sailing, surfing, island tours and fishing trips.

The central location of the hotel also positions it in close proximity to popular tourist attractions such as Marina Mall, Heritage Village, the Abu Dhabi Formula One racecourse and Ferrari World as well as the stunning Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.

"It's an honor and a delight to be voted as one of the Middle East's top 10 hotels by readers of Conde Nast Traveler. This recognition speaks for the effort and enthusiasm that the staff of Hilton Abu Dhabi put into making sure that each and every guest who walk in our door, has a satisfactory experience," said Wolfgang Maier, general manager, Hilton Abu Dhabi.
