Hilton Hotels has signed an agreement with Beijing Macau Development Company Limited to manage the Hilton Wangfujing Beijing. Scheduled to open before the Olympic Games in 2008, it will be the one of the newest deluxe hotel offerings in the renowned Wangfujing district, home to World Heritage Site, the Forbidden City and historic landmark, Tiananmen Square.

With its prime location, the Hilton Wangfujing Beijing will be a premier hotel for Hilton Hotels Corporation in China and a symbol of our goal to build a nationwide presence in China, across all market segments, said Koos Klein, president Asia Pacific Hilton Hotels Corporation.

Hilton Hotels Corporation will be well-positioned to serve its guests through our existing Hilton Beijing, located on the Third Ring Road, as well as two new hotels, the Hilton Wangfujing Beijing and Doubletree Beijing.

Comprising 266 guest rooms, the Hilton Wangfujing Beijing will offer a variety of all-day dining and speciality restaurants, bars and lounges.
