Hilton to Open Rangoon Hotel
1 March 2013
The Hilton is coming to Burma’s commercial capital Rangoon, the Financial Times reports. The prestigious international hotel chain has plans to occupy 300 rooms in the city’s tallest building Centrepoint Towers, a skyscraper that has been under construction in the heart of Rangoon for several years. Hilton executives would not comment on the plans, but Burmese government officials confirmed that Hilton Yangon was scheduled to open in early 2014 as part of a management deal between Hilton Worldwide and the Thai-Burmese firm that owns Centrepoint Towers, according to the Times.
