Tursa, a Sabancı Holding subsidiary, is the owner of Adana Hiltonsa and Mersin Hiltonsa, while Ankara Enternasyonal Otelcilik owns Ankara Hiltonsa. The Group entered the tourism industry with the Adana Erciyes Hotel many years ago. The Group first gained traction in the form of a founding partnership with the inauguration of the Ankara Hiltonsa Hotel in 1988. The Group’s tourism business expanded further with Mersin Hiltonsa hotel in 1990 and reached its current state with the opening of Adana Hiltonsa in early 2001. As of year-end 2019, the Hiltonsa chain of hotels had a 790-room capacity in total: 309 rooms at Ankara Hiltonsa, 295 rooms at Adana Hiltonsa, and 186 rooms at Mersin Hiltonsa. The hotels are operated by the Hilton Group.
In 2019, 95% of the hotel was renovated with Ankara Hiltonsa’s room/floor modernization. With the new face of the hotel, an increase has been recorded both in terms of occupancy as well as in terms of income and profitability in 2019.
With the “Riverside” project of Adana Hiltonsa completed in 2019, it has become the largest and most prestigious pool and banquet area in the region.
