Hilton Worldwide Opens DoubleTree by Hilton Zanzibar - Stone Town, Tanzania
Hotel Marks Brand’s Third Hotel in Tanzania
The island of Zanzibar is known as 'Spice Island' for its long-standing association with the spice industry. Stone Town, the oldest section of Zanzibar, is made up of ancient stone houses, palaces from the Omani days, carved wooden doors and a treasure trove of bazaars and galleries. The design of DoubleTree by Hilton Zanzibar - Stone Town reflects the rich architecture and influences of the travelers and settlers who traded with the Islanders.

The hotel's vibrant oceanfront location marks the perfect setting for everything from leisure getaways to conferences and social events for up to 200 guests. The hotel's exotic Stone City location marks the perfect setting for the conference center that offers eight versatile meeting rooms and breakout spaces, a complimentary business center, A/V resources and full catering services. The top floor of the conference center is a tranquil, open space, flooded with natural light and offering magnificent views over the city. Complimentary WiFi is available in guest rooms.
