HIGH WYCOMBE, UK and MCLEAN, Va. - Hilton (NYSE: HLT) has announced a partnership with Handy Cross Dev Co Limited to bring a 150-guest room Hampton by Hilton to High Wycombe, United Kingdom. The hotel is planned for the site to the west of the park and with easy access to the M40 motorway. The project is an integral part of the council’s consented masterplan for the hub.
“We are delighted to bring our global brand to High Wycombe alongside the local authority’s £150m Handy Cross Hub, mixed use development,” said Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president, development, EMEA, Hilton.

Following on from this latest success we hope to capitalise on this and progress with development of another piece of the HXH jigsaw.”
