When the Waldorf Astoria in Ras Al Khaimah opens in August, it will be the brand's new flagship hotel. Formerly, the New York location was referred to as the flagship hotel. "We're looking at the Ras Al Khaimah Waldorf to be the flagship, that's why it has a lot of focus from the brand," said Mohab Ghali, Hilton's RAK country manager. "The Waldorf has a very strong name generally for luxury, even the richer part of the high class of Europe would know what is a Waldorf. This is our target (guest)."
