Hilton Worldwide has announced plans for the first hotel in Africa from its boutique Curio Collection of hotels. The Legend Hotel is expected to open in mid-2016 at Lagos Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Nigeria.
The Legend Hotel, which will be within the airport boundaries, will have 54 guest rooms, including eight suites. In addition to close proximity to the international airport terminal, guests will also benefit from exclusive facilities for private jet and corporate jet passengers of ExecuJet – which will allow passengers same-building access to the arrivals and departures services of the private aviation company.
The Legend Hotel's interiors will be designed to reflect the unique personality of Nigeria's capital city. There will also be three upscale dining options, including VIP dining facilities and two bars, as well as approximately 1,700 square feet of event space across three meeting rooms.
