Hilton has signed an agreement with Signo Hospitality to develop 10 new hotels in Germany under its Hilton Garden Inn, Hampton by Hilton and Motto by Hilton brands.
The agreement signed with Signo Hospitality – which also extends to Austria and Switzerland – will see these new hotels in the next 5 years.
This will be the 1st time that a Hilton branded property will open in the cities of Herne and Bottrop.
Hilton Garden Inn Herne, located in Shamrock Park, a growing business park close to the city centre, will be a 154 room hotel and will feature a full-service lobby restaurant and bar, a shop, a gym and 3 meeting rooms.
Hampton by Hilton Bottrop will consist of 108 rooms on the city’s Berlin Square, and will form part of a shopping centre redevelopment, including retail outlets and a cinema complex.
In Germany, Hilton currently operates 33 hotels, making the country the group’s second-largest market in Continental Europe. A further 7 properties are expected to open in 2021.
“We are excited to partner with Signo Hospitality to support the next phase of our development in Germany, where Hilton is growing rapidly with nearly 50 hotels trading or under development. Rising demand for our focused service brands has underpinned this growth – particularly Hampton by Hilton, which has doubled its footprint in the past few years. There remains a tremendous opportunity for Hampton, Hilton Garden Inn and Motto by Hilton in cities across Germany, from airports to regional business hubs. Working with partners like Signo will allow us to continue this momentum and unleash pent up demand for quality branded accommodation.”said Patrick Fitzgibbon, Senior Vice President, Development, EMEA, Hilton.
