The 297-bedroom Hampton by Hilton London Waterloo is to be officially launched today. Located on Waterloo Road, it will be the limited service brand's first property in central London.
The hotel, which employs 75 staff, serves a hot breakfast as part of the room rate, while guests can eat other meals in the adjacent Asado restaurant, operated by Cyrus Todiwala.
Phil Cordell, global head for focused service and Hampton brand management, Hilton Worldwide, said: "The opening of our first Hampton by Hilton in central London is a key milestone for the brand as we continue our expansion in the UK."
Launched into the UK in Corby, Northamptonshire in 2009, the Hampton by Hilton brand now has 14 hotels across the UK, primarily in airport and city centre locations. A further 14 Hamptons are in the pipeline in the UK, including hotels in Woolwich, London, and Glasgow, which are due to open next year.
Worldwide, there are more than 1,900 Hampton hotels in 14 countries.
