MCLEAN, Va.–Hampton by Hilton kicked off 2018 by adding seven new hotels to its portfolio of more than 2,330 properties worldwide, including Hampton Inn & Suites by Hilton Knightdale Raleigh and Hampton Inn & Suites by Hilton Sacramento at CSUS. The upper-midscale brand announced that it has more than 580 additional hotels in the global pipeline—a 17.7 percent increase year-over-year.
In 2017, the brand opened an average of two hotels per week globally and eclipsed the 100 new hotel milestone for the third consecutive year. “Following a strong year, we are building upon that momentum by capitalizing on the demand for upper-midscale hotels around the world,” says Shruti Gandhi Buckley, global head, Hampton by Hilton. “Hampton remains the category killer. It’s truly everywhere our guests want and need to be. Pairing that accessibility with our longstanding commitment to guest satisfaction, makes Hampton the ideal choice for travelers.”
