Hilton Worldwide Opens New Dual-Brand Property in Downtown Houston
Debut of Hampton Inn by Hilton and Homewood Suites by Hilton Continues Brands’ Expansion in Urban Markets
HOUSTON, Texas and MCLEAN, Va. - Hilton Worldwide (NYSE: HLT) today announced the opening of its newest hotel, the dual-branded Hampton Inn by Hilton Houston Downtown and Homewood Suites by Hilton Houston Downtown bringing a total of 300 new rooms to the heart of downtown Houston. The opening further establishes Hilton Worldwide's strong presence in this market and continues the company's growth in urban markets.
"This latest opening adds to the growing Hilton Worldwide portfolio and continues to provide unique lodging options for travelers," said Phil Cordell, global head, Focused Service and Hampton Brand Management, Hilton Worldwide. "Opening in one of America's largest cities, the dual-branded Hampton Inn & Suites and Homewood Suites welcomes business and leisure travelers alike."
Developed and owned by American Liberty Hospitality, Hampton Inn by Hilton and Homewood Suites by Hilton Houston Downtown complement the city's vibrant tourism market and increased meetings and conventions.
Both properties are located at 710 Crawford Street, offering guests a central location and convenient access to local attractions like the Houston Museum of Natural Science, Minute Maid Park, the Museum of Fine Arts and the Space Center Houston, just a short drive away. The hotel is also within walking distance from Houston's top Fortune 500 corporations such as Hess, Waste Management, Chevron, Shell, Chase, Center Point Energy, Wells Fargo, Deloitte, Ernst & Young and PricewaterhouseCoopers, among others.
The dual-brand concept creates enhanced and larger communal areas than what would be standard at a stand-alone property, benefitting both business and leisure travelers. The hotel has two distinct lobbies and dining areas - each catering to the needs of their respective guests - while sharing one registration desk, fitness center, and roof-top pool. The hotel also offers 5,000 square feet of flexible meeting space that can accommodate up to 225 people.
Hampton by Hilton provides guests a fresh start to each day with On the House hot breakfast which includes eggs, oatmeal and waffles. In addition, the hotel provides Hampton's On the RunTM Breakfast Bags, available Monday through Friday. Also, other amenities include free Wi-Fi, a 24-hour business center with complimentary printing and a 24-hour fitness center. Each guestroom includes the brand's signature Clean and fresh Hampton bed®, HDTV, refrigerator and coffeemaker.
