Hampton by Hilton opens at Bristol airport

Hilton’s Hampton by Hilton brand has opened a new 201-bedroom hotel at Bristol airport.

The property features a 24-hour ‘convenience hub’ with a selection of snacks and drinks, free hot breakfast with each booking, complimentary WiFi,  two meeting rooms, a 24-hour fitness centre and a business centre.

Simon Vincent, executive vice-president and president, Europe, Middle East and Africa, at Hilton, said: “More than seven and a half million passengers pass through the doors of Bristol airport every year, and we’re now offering travellers a convenient and great value accommodation option on its doorstep.

“This opening also marks an important landmark for us as one of the first hotels in our portfolio globally to be completed using an innovative modular construction technique – paving the way for further expansion in the UK and internationally.”

The construction technique was designed and manufactured by CIMC Modular Building Systems, whereby segments of the hotel were built in a factory in China.

The developers used steel modular units as the building blocks for the hotel, before shipping them over to the UK and assembling the airport hotel on site.

Hilton now has more than 400 airport hotels across the world.
