Hampton Hotels reveals ‘TREATS’ shop concept

Hampton Hotels announced a new design update to increase food and beverage retail options within current and future Hampton Hotels. The new concept, called TREATS, has a walk-up or walk-in shop filled with snacks, toiletries, local merchandise and drinks, including water, soda, single-serve beer and wine, for purchase.

The concept includes two separate designs: a walk-in solution for hotels with an existing Suite Shop space, and a walk-up solution for hotels without an existing food and beverage retail offering. Both options will be located within the lobby of each hotel.

The walk-in TREATS shop will be reconfigured from current shop space near the front desk. To increase visibility to guests, a graphic mural will be the focal point of the shop. Entering the space, natural wood-toned shelves packed with sundries and local merchandise will line the walls from floor to ceiling.

For properties without an existing food and beverage offering, a walk-up TREATS concept will be implemented within Hampton's Perfect Mix Lobby. One or two shelves of items will line walls within the lobby for a grab-n-go experience. With the new walk-up TREATS concept, visitors will have the ability to browse and to purchase the things they need.

Beginning in 2015, all new hotels will offer Hampton TREATS. Existing Hampton properties in North America will implement the new offerings on a rolling basis.
