Hilton has signed a management agreement with Cape Sierra Hotel Company to develop the first Hilton Hotels & Resorts property in Sierra Leone.

The new property will be prominently located in Aberdeen, Freetown, overlooking the local coastline, which includes one of the largest natural harbours in the world.

The hotel will have 200 rooms, including 60 executive standard rooms and 20 suites and feature a business centre, health club, outdoor pool and five restaurants and bars. The hotel is scheduled to open in 2014.

Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president, development, Europe and Africa, Hilton Worldwide said, "Hilton Worldwide has enjoyed a presence in Africa for more than 50 years and our commitment to the continent remains as solid as ever. We have opened five hotels in Africa already this year and we're confident Hilton Freetown Cape Sierra will prove to be an important addition to our growing portfolio."

Sierra Leone's emerging market economy is experiencing year-on-year growth as investment in the minerals and energy sectors drives business confidence.

The signing of Hilton Freetown Cape Sierra is the second signing Hilton has made in Africa this month, following the Hilton D'Njamena, Chad.

Hilton Worldwide currently has 34 hotels across the continent of Africa with another eight in the development pipeline. So far this year, Hilton has opened eight hotels and signed 14 management agreements across the Middle East and Africa.
