Hampton by Hilton Arrives in the Pink City
Hampton by Hilton Toulouse Airport opens as the brand’s second property in France, conveniently located next to the passenger terminal
TOULOUSE, France - Today, Hampton by Hilton Toulouse Airport opens its doors in Toulouse, a city known to locals as La Ville Rose, or “The Pink City” after the distinctive pink stone used to construct many of its buildings.
Located by Toulouse-Blagnac Airport, the 126-room hotel is the latest addition to the growing Hampton by Hilton portfolio. The global value hotel brand known for its commitment to providing high-quality accommodations, value-added amenities and thoughtful service is one of Hilton’s (NYSE: HLT) 17 market-leading brands. The new location joins Hampton by Hilton Paris Clichy, which opened earlier this year in France.
Set to help meet the city’s growing demand1 for high-quality airport accommodation and authentic hospitality, Hampton by Hilton Toulouse Airport is just 600m from the airport terminal. For convenience, the hotel also offers a free shuttle to the terminal and surrounding businesses, making it a perfect base for passengers traveling through Toulouse.
A short 20-minutes away from the city centre, Toulouse has a vibrant art scene that features many murals and street art throughout the town. Travelers can spend a cultural afternoon at Les Abattoirs, which was once the city’s main slaughterhouse, but now an impressive gallery for exhibitions of modern and contemporary art. Bringing that sense of creativity to this hotel has been important, so much so, that Hampton by Hilton Toulouse Airport has commissioned graffiti artist Loïc Mondé to inject colour and energy throughout the property.
“Hampton by Hilton Toulouse Airport is a welcome addition to our growing portfolio in France, where we are set to almost double our number of hotels in the next three to five years,” said Simon Vincent, EVP & President, EMEA, Hilton. “With its two UNESCO heritage sites, glorious architecture and fine food, it is no surprise that tourism is increasing to the spectacular and varied city of Toulouse.”
The hotel offers the choice of Queen and Queen Family rooms, all equipped with a HDTV, free Wi-Fi, tea and coffee making facilities, along with a free hot breakfast. In addition, guests have access to the hotel’s fitness center, business center and sunlit boardroom.
“The opening of our second property in France, Hampton by Hilton Toulouse Airport, demonstrates our continued growth in Europe and adds to our strong global presence in nearly 30 countries,” said Shruti Gandhi Buckley, global head, Hampton by Hilton. “The property provides guests with a modern design, high-quality amenities and unmatched, friendly customer service that Hampton is known for throughout the world.”
Nicolas Andrieu, NT Hotel Gallery, said: "We are pleased to bring Hampton by Hilton to the city of Toulouse for the very first time. As a leading international hospitality brand, Hampton by Hilton connects us to an audience of seasoned travellers and in particular a loyalty base of more than 71 million Hilton Honors guests. We look forward to welcoming these visitors to Toulouse."
