Hilton Worldwide has unveiled plans to open the country’s debut Hampton by Hilton hotel in Glasgow city centre this summer. Under a franchise agreement with SCOT Sheridan and Curo West Campbell LLP, £11m has been invested in the redevelopment of the former Currie & Brown offices on the corner of Bath Street and West Campbell Street (a short walk from Glasgow Central Rail Station). The building will undergo an extensive renovation, which will see the structure converted into an 88 guest room hotel with additional features including a 24 hour fitness centre.
Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president, development, Europe and Africa, Hilton Worldwide, said, “Hilton Worldwide has a strong presence in Glasgow, led by our flagship Hilton Glasgow. Visitor numbers to the city are expected to grow by up to one million a year until 2016 so the time is right to expand our portfolio here.”
Phil Cordell, global head, Hampton by Hilton, said, “The eyes of the world will be on Scotland in 2014 as it hosts both the Ryder Cup and Commonwealth Games. As a result there can be no better time for us to introduce our own gold medal winning brand to the country.”
Hampton by Hilton Glasgow Central will offer the brand’s full range of signature services. These include free high speed internet access, a daily hot breakfast included in the room rate and a round the clock snack bar. Guestrooms will be equipped with the Clean and Fresh Hampton Bed, contemporary bathrooms, 32-inch TVs and secure safes as standard. Every stay is underpinned by Hampton’s 100% Satisfaction Guarantee – whereby if a guest is not satisfied with their stay, they do not have to pay. Hampton is now a leader in its segment and one of the fastest growing hotel brands worldwide.
