When the renovation is completed, the iconic Transcorp Hilton Abuja will offer guests a brand new and ultramodern furnishing concept to rival other five- star hotels worldwide. All 670 guest rooms and suites have been redesigned by award-winning Swedish interior design company, Living Design, who has added an extra touch of luxury to the exquisite finish and furnishing. The complete renovation, when finalised, will include refurbishing of the Executive Lounge, elevators and

The hotel will remain open during the renovation. Disruptions will be minimal, as no more than three floors will be closed at any given time. Selected services and facilities are to be relocated in order to ensure guest comfort and satisfaction, as the hotel remains operational and committed to exceeding expectations during the improvement period. Transcorp Hilton assures all guests that customer satisfaction is of utmost importance. “We are excited to unveil the on-going renovations to our guests and community as another stride towards maintaining our position as one of Africa’s leading hotels,” said Etienne Gailliez, General Manager. The full renovation will be completed in 18 months. In addition to the upgrade of Transcorp Hilton, Transcorp Hotels Plc has also embarked on two major hotel projects, Transcorp Hilton Ikoyi Lagos and Transcorp Hilton Port Harcourt to extend its luxury accommodation and conferencing facilities to guests beyond Abuja and Calabar. A major multi-purpose conferencing facility with a seating capacity of 5,000 is also being developed in Abuja to help transform the capital city to a major conference hub in Africa. Finally, as part of the expansion in Transcorp Hilton Abuja, Transcorp Hotels Plc intends to develop a 200-unit luxury apartment that will rival the best of residential experiences anywhere in the world.
