MCLEAN, Va.–(hospitalitybusinessnews.com)–Hampton Hotels, the international brand of nearly 1,900 mid-priced Hampton Inn, Hampton Inn & Suites and Hampton by Hilton hotels, today announced the results of a strong first quarter, with the opening of 22 new properties and the addition of 2,134 new guestrooms. This follows a strong 2012, which saw more than 70 new hotel openings and numerous accolades for the brand, including being named the top franchise for the third year in a row in Entrepreneur magazine’s annual Franchise 500® and Travel Weekly’s 2012 mid-priced hotel chain Reader’s Choice Awards winner for the fifth year in a row. Collectively in 2013, nearly 90 new properties are expected to open, adding to the brand’s current guestroom count of more than 186,000 rooms globally.

“Capping 2012 with 70-plus openings, we look forward to a sustained period of growth in 2013 with nearly 90 new Hampton Hotel properties,” said Phil Cordell, global head, focused service and Hampton brand management, Hilton Worldwide. “We plan to continue aggressively recruiting new franchise owners and forge ahead in desirable and emerging markets.”

Openings in the first three months of 2013 included ten Hampton Inn, ten Hampton Inn & Suites and two Hampton by Hilton properties. Most notably, two hotels in Colombia opened during the first quarter, supporting the brand’s growth strategy in emerging markets such as South America. The 125-room Hampton by Hilton Barranquilla, which is centrally located near Puerto Colombia’s white-sand beaches and the Buenavista shopping mall, opened in February. The 135-room Hampton by Hilton Cartagena, set in the bustling Bocagrande district, opened in March. Both hotels are already attracting leisure and business travelers, showcasing Hampton by Hilton’s signature brand offerings including a free hot breakfast, a Clean and Fresh Hampton bed™ and free Wi-Fi.

In Q1 2013, Hampton Hotels opened domestic properties in Georgia, Missouri, North Carolina and Texas. For the first time, two Hilton Worldwide brands, Hampton Inn & Suites and Home2 Suites, partnered for a combined property in Huntsville, Alabama. The 175-room property – which features shared meeting and function space, pool facilities, fitness centers and other amenities – includes 98 Hampton Inn & Suites guestrooms.
