Hilton Expands to Africa With a New Hotel in Ghana

Hilton will make its debut in Ghana with the opening of the brand new Hilton Accra Cantonments. The announcement of a new hotel in Ghana came before this week’s Africa Hotel Investment Forum (AHIF) in Nairobi. Cantonments, an affluent suburb, is home to numerous embassies and high commissions and will serve as the hotel’s location.

The Hilton Accra Cantonments will be less than six miles from Kotoka International Airport. Hilton Accra Cantonments expects to start welcoming guests in December 2023.

“With the signing of Hilton Accra Cantonments, we are delighted to be growing our pipeline in Ghana and adding momentum to our plans to more than double our portfolio in Africa in the coming years,” said Carlos Khneisser, who is Hilton’s vice president of development in the Middle East and Africa. “The opening of the hotel later this year will mark our entry into Ghana — one of the world’s largest producers of gold and cocoa and a burgeoning tourist destination. We look forward to this exciting milestone which will highlight our continued expansion in Africa.” 

All-day Dining Restaurant, Lobby Lounge and Pool Bar

The 145-room Hilton Accra Cantonments will bring this hospitality to life once it opens. The hotel will feature a swimming pool, spa and fitness center for guests’ enjoyment. 

More than 900 square meters of event space also is available in this hotel in Ghana. 

“We are delighted to partner with Hilton to open this world-class hotel which will soon grace Ghana’s capital city,” said Charles Mensa, the owner and High Street Development Company Limited. “We are confident that once open, the hotel will be an attractive option for travellers to Accra, offering high-quality accommodations and globally renowned service standards.” 

Including the Hilton Garden Inn Accra Liberation Road, Hilton is planning to build three hotels in Ghana. Across Africa, the hotel chain has 43 properties open or under construction and another 65 are in the planning stages.

Ghana quickly is regaining pre-pandemic tourism levels in 2022. The country’s latest tourism report shows that it received 914,892 international tourists and earned over $2.5 billion last year, almost returning to pre-COVID-19 levels. VoyageAfriq reported a 47 percent increase from 2021’s 623,523. International arrivals revenue also increased exponentially by over 107 percent.
