The first Hampton by Hilton in London is to be developed on a site adjacent to Waterloo Station.
It is being built on a 1.5-acre site by Rising Star in association with Shiva Hotels.
The 300-bedroom hotel will be one of the largest Hampton by Hilton hotels - Hilton Worldwide's three-star, value brand - outside of the USA. There are currently eight Hampton by Hilton hotels in the UK.
Due to open on 2012, the hotel will be operated by Shiva Hotels.
