Largest Hampton by Hilton hotel in Europe to open at Stansted

The largest Hampton by Hilton in Europe is to open at Stansted in summer 2017.

Hilton Worldwide has signed a franchise agreement to bring the 357-room property to the airport after developers secured planning permission to build the hotel at a cost of £45 million.

The hotel will be built on a two-acre site and provide direct access to the airport’s terminal.

The project is part of Stansted owner Manchester Airport Group’s £260 million plan to attract more passengers, airlines and long-haul services to the airport.

Work is due to start on the hotel by the end of the year. Features will include free Wi-Fi and hot breakfast.

Hilton Worldwide development senior vice president, Patrick Fitzgibbon, said: “The introduction of Hampton by Hilton to London Stansted airport is consistent with our strategy of developing focused service properties sufficiently close to the airport that guests can access the terminal without a shuttle bus.

“This strategy has proven successful for our hotels in a number of locations, including properties at airports in Gatwick, Exeter and Liverpool, and is integral to our developments in Bristol airport and in Stansted.

“With more scheduled European destinations than any other UK airport, Stansted is an ideal location at which to develop our economy brand.”
