Have you ever stayed at one of the hotels owned by Hampton? They’re a mid-market hotel brand owned by Hilton and they are looking to expand outside of their regular market.
Hilton Worldwide has gotten an agreement signed already and they’re planning to build the biggest Hampton in the world — in Dubai.
Dubai is known for its extravagance and its insanely number of billionaires. We are not surprised that they chose to pick that location, because the number of tourists to Dubai yearly exceed 5 million. The agreement also includes opening Hilton Garden Inn Dubai Al Garhoud, and that’s expected to open this year.
There are some already big chains in Dubai — including ones owned by the Hilton already (Hilton Garden Inn Dubai Al Mina and Hilton Garden Inn Dubai Al Muragabat). They are both expect to be built by 2017.
The goal for these mid-range hotel chains is to attract more and more tourists to come and visit. They want to meet at least 20 million tourists per year by 2020, and we think that’s a do-able goal.
This will be the first Hampton by Hilton. It will have more than 420 guest rooms, comparable to the Hilton Garden Inn at 550 rooms. It will feature all the benefits of a more luxurious hotel including fitness rooms, a swimming pool, sauna, and a huge banquet hall.
There are a lot more hotels expected to be built from now until 2020 for their huge Millennial expo.
So who’s up for going to Dubai, one of the richest cities in the world?
