Hilton has signed an agreement to extend its partnership with real estate and private equity company Dominvs Group to four new hotels in London and Bath, including the first property under Hilton's Motto brand.

“London was a natural choice for one of our first Motto by Hilton hotels,” said Tripp McLaughlin, global head, Motto by Hilton last year. “In prime central London space is at a premium and Motto’s competitive advantage includes efficient build costs; highly engineered, flexible guestrooms and multiple revenue opportunities in the public spaces, making it a compelling brand for owners seeking premium returns.”

The first Motto is expected to open next year.
