The hotel is planned for the site to the west of the park and with “easy access” to the M40 motorway. The project is an integral part of the council’s consented plan for the hub.
Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president at Hilton, said: “We are delighted to bring our global brand to High Wycombe alongside the local authority’s £150m Handy Cross Hub, mixed use development.”
Andy Townsend, director of Handy Cross Dev Co and CEO of Legacy Hotels & Resorts added: “Hampton by Hilton High Wycombe will be a landmark building enjoying significant visibility from passing traffic on the M40 motorway. This is a continuation of our partnership with Hilton and this exciting project will meet the growing demand for quality accommodation in the area.
“Hampton by Hilton is a globally-recognized hotel brand, and we are delighted that there will be a quality offer at Handy Cross Hub,” said Cllr Steve Broadbent, cabinet member for economic development and regeneration at Wycombe District Council. “Handy Cross Hub is a prime location with great potential for investors to continue to improve the ‘town offer’. Following on from this latest success we hope to capitalise on this and progress with development of another piece of the HXH jigsaw.”
Wycombe District Council sold the designated hotel site to Legacy Hotels & Resorts, in partnership with global hotel investors Frank Truman Asset Management, in November.
