The hospitality group is continuing its European expansion with the addition of these newly announced properties.
Continued brand growth
Hilton’s six newly announced hotels are to open under the group’s focused service brands across Germany, Italy, the UK and Poland. These openings in Berlin, Potsdam, Venice, Bologna, Plymouth and Szczecin will join over 60 Hilton Garden Inn and Hampton by Hilton operating properties in Europe.
Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president, development, EMEA, Hilton said: “Hilton Garden Inn and Hampton by Hilton are two of Hilton’s fastest growing brands, with more than half of our European development pipeline by hotel under these two brands.”
“Hilton has established one of the most successful and sought after franchise support models in European hospitality, with over 350 hotels now operating with our established partners and a further 170 new hotels in our pipeline. Hilton Garden Inn and Hampton by Hilton are popular with guests, and have a proven track record in a range of locations, from regional towns to major capitals, airports to sporting stadiums, making them an attractive opportunity for investors.”
“Now operating in 23 European countries and with plans to open in seven new markets in the next five years, value-conscious guests will be able to experience Hilton’s industry-leading hospitality in a growing number of places.”
