Hilton (NYSE:HLT) today announced the opening of Legend Hotel Lagos Airport, Curio Collection by Hilton, which marks Hilton’s 500th hotel to open across Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA).

“Having recently celebrated the addition of our 60th Curio Collection hotel, we are excited to debut in Africa with Legend Hotel Lagos Airport, a contemporary property with close proximity to a major financial center in Nigeria,” said Mark Nogal, global head, Curio Collection by Hilton. “Whether it’s taking in the views of the airfield from De Bull restaurant and bar or enjoying the beautiful Art Deco style interiors, Legend Hotel Lagos Airport offers travelers a distinctive and unexpected experience in a growing tourist destination.”

Hilton is committed to growth and opportunity across Africa and has had a continuous presence on the continent since 1959. Hilton currently operates 41 hotels in Africa with 53 in its development pipeline, and expects to double its portfolio of hotels on the continent during the next five years as it continues to grow and enter new markets. In the next five years alone, the company will open hotels in 13 countries where it does not currently operate, including Botswana, Ghana, Swaziland, Uganda, Malawi and Rwanda.
