Work at three of Dubai's major hotels is in full swing just one day after the announcement that Al Habtoor Group will rebrand three of its Dubai properties as Hilton hotels.
The St Regis Dubai, W Dubai Habtoor City and The Westin Dubai Al Habtoor City have all received new names and signage - in fact, even the street signs have been changed.
The move comes after US hospitality major Marriott International, the largest international hotel operator in the Middle East and Africa (MEA), ceased working with the Al Habtoor Group properties, a move that was only announced on July 9.
