Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, a brand of Hilton Worldwide, has debuted in Kuwait with the opening of Waldorf Astoria Kuwait.

The hotel is located alongside The Avenues, a retail, entertainment, and luxury lifestyle destination.

It is an 11km away from Kuwait International Airport.

The hotel provides easy access to local attractions such as the Kuwait Opera House, Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmad Cultural Centre and the Grand Mosque.
