Hilton has signed a deal with Wessal Capital to return to the Moroccan capital city of Rabat in 2022 to manage the 150-room Hilton Rabat. The property will be part of the city's Wessal Bouregreg project, which contains a range of high-end residential, entertainment and cultural attractions on the banks of the river Bouregreg.

Guests at Hilton Rabat will enjoy close proximity to a range of facilities including a shopping mall, the Zaha Hadid-designed Grand Theatre of Rabat and several new cultural components. The hotel itself will offer a number of food and beverage options, an outdoor swimming pool, a spa, a salon and ample meetings space.

Hilton was home to a property in Rabat in the 1960s, one that eventually became a Sofitel.
