Hampton by Hilton celebrated its Middle East debut with the opening of Hampton by Hilton Dubai Airport, marking the largest property in Hampton’s global portfolio. The opening of Hampton by Hilton Dubai Airport reinforces the brand’s commitment to international growth, driven by concerted efforts in China and Latin America, while deepening its reach in the U.S. and Europe.
The opening bolsters Hampton’s international footprint of more than 2,380 hotels in 22 countries and territories. With the largest pipeline in the brand’s history and in the Hilton enterprise with 620 planned hotels, Hampton is positioned for growth in its target markets. Hampton recently opened its first hotel in Kazakhstan, and soon will enter into Argentina, Chile and France, with continued expansion in China, where it is the fastest growing international hospitality brand in the country.
“Hampton continues to bring quality accommodations, strong value, and outstanding service everywhere travelers need and want to be,” Shruti Gandhi Buckley, global head, Hampton by Hilton, said in a statement. “Hampton has a long legacy of delivering an incomparable guest experience, which will be led by General Manager Nayla Chowdhury at Hampton by Hilton Dubai Airport, whose appointment signifies Hilton’s growing international female leadership representation.”
The contemporary 420-room hotel is located near the Dubai International Airport and the Dubai Airport Freezone Authority. Hampton by Hilton Dubai Airport also has a rooftop gym with panoramic views of the Dubai skyline, an infinity pool and a fully licensed bar.
The property brings Hampton’s services and amenities for the first time to the region, offering a free breakfast, spacious rooms, complimentary Wi-Fi and a 24/7 business center.
“With Dubai’s vision of welcoming 20 million tourists annually to the emirate by 2020, diversifying its hospitality offering has become a major priority for the travel and tourism sector,” Rudi Jagersbacher, area president – Middle East, Africa and Turkey for Hilton, said in a statement. “Today’s travelers are increasingly looking for affordable hospitality without compromising on quality. They want a hotel in a well-connected location, with clean and modern rooms, free Wi-Fi, and friendly, reliable, quality service. This is precisely what the Hampton by Hilton brand offers.”
