After months of anticipation and 35 years of development, Hilton's upper-midscale Hampton brand has opened its 2,500th hotel: The Hampton by Hilton Lima San Isidro, which also marks the brand's debut in Peru.
As of the end of June, Hilton’s largest brand now has nearly 260,000 rooms across 27 countries and territories, with a pipeline of more than 700 properties and 93,000 rooms, reportedly the largest ever in brand history and within the Hilton enterprise.
Additionally, Hampton by Hilton is entering new markets in the Caribbean and Latin America, with four first-in-country openings in the region this year.
Earlier this year, the brand made its debut in Chile with the Hampton by Hilton Antofagasta and in Brazil with the Hampton by Hilton Guarulhos Airport near São Paulo’s busiest airport. Hampton by Hilton Bariloche is set to become Hampton’s first property in Argentina in Q3.
Hampton now has more than 50 properties and nearly 7,000 rooms across nine countries and territories in the Caribbean and Latin America and aims to add nearly 15 properties and more than 1,750 rooms by 2022, including a first-in-country location in El Salvador, set to open in 2021. Hampton’s growth in the region supports the company’s larger expansion strategy across the Caribbean and Latin America, where Hilton has nearly 150 open properties across 23 countries and more than 90 projects in the development pipeline.
In Europe, the brand has nearly 90 open properties and recently expanded into Belgium with Hampton by Hilton Antwerp Central Station and France with Hampton by Hilton Paris Clichy.
Hampton also just announced a partnership with Alshaya Group, where the international franchise operator will develop 70 Hampton properties in nine countries across the Middle East, North Africa and Russia. With the first hotel expected to open in 2021, the Alshaya Group will deliver 50 hotels in the next eight years, with another 20 in the pipeline.
The brand has achieved 180 percent year-over-year growth in the Asia Pacific region with China in the lead, including the recently opened Hampton by Hilton Changsha South Station and Hampton by Hilton Guangzhou Dongxiaonan.
Hampton, which opened its first Chinese property in 2015, reportedly is now the number-one, fastest-growing international hotel brand in the country just four years later and is set to open its 100th hotel later this year. The brand has a strong pipeline of more than 260 signed hotels and 40,000 rooms in China.
Hampton by Hilton has more than 2,250 hotels in all 50 U.S. states, D.C., and Puerto Rico, as well as nine Canadian provinces and territories. The pipeline has more than 300 properties and 32,000 rooms. The newest properties include Hampton Inn & Suites by Hilton in Beauport Quebec, Atlanta Decatur/Emory, San Diego Airport Liberty Station and in Snoqualmie, Wash.
