BOURNEMOUTH, UK and MCLEAN, Va. - Today, Hampton by Hilton, Hilton Worldwide's global brand with more than 2,000 mid-priced hotels announced the official opening of its newest property, Hampton by Hilton Bournemouth, located on Upper Terrace Road. The property, offering 120 contemporary guest rooms, is owned by London-based developer THAT Group, and managed by Hilton Worldwide.
Phil Cordell, global head, focused service and Hampton brand management, Hilton Worldwide, said, "The opening of Hampton by Hilton Bournemouth marks the beginning of the British summer for Hilton Worldwide. The property joins more than 30 Hampton by Hilton hotels already operating and under development across the country. What makes this property particularly special, is that it represents the first of two hotels to open under our brands in the same location, and will be followed by Hilton Bournemouth, which is due to open its doors in winter 2015."
In addition to the newly opened five storey 120-bedroom Hampton by Hilton, upon completion, the development will incorporate a 8 storey, 172 bedroom upscale Hilton hotel with 15 exclusive residential apartments above. The ambitious project aims to bring an increase in business and tourism to the area, and is set to boost the thriving local economy.

"Our guests will experience the warmth of our service along with the fun and friendly vibe of the town all year round," said Jason Davies, hotel manager, Hampton by Hilton Bournemouth. "We are situated less than 500 metres away from the Bournemouth International Centre, which hosts a variety of conferences, exhibitions and performances, and the hotel is the same distance from the town's beautiful gardens, which hark back to the Victorian era of horticulture.
