BERLIN-As part of its global expansion efforts, Hilton Worldwide will open its first Hampton by Hilton hotel in Berlin. The 214-key development will go up near the Kaiser Wilhem Church in the middle of Berlin West.

“The introduction of the ‘Hampton by Hilton’ brand in Europe is an important aspect of our strategic development ambition – one that we believe has huge growth potential in Germany,” says Patrick Fitzgibbon, SVP of development for Europe and Africa at Hilton Worldwide.

“Berlin is an important destination for business and leisure travelers and our Hampton by Hilton hotel will be a great addition to the city. We see significant opportunity for the economy hotel segment in Germany and are excited about the opportunities for our brands to develop.”

Curator Hotelbetriebsgesellschaft mbH Berlin entered into the franchise deal. The eight-floor hotel is expected to open towards the end of 2010. Plans call for the creation of four meeting rooms, a fitness center, a breakfast room and 214 bedrooms.

Hilton is also in the process of building a 242-key, 31-story Waldorf Astoria Berlin, which is slated to open in 2011.

Globally there are more than 1,700 Hampton hotels, accounting for more than 170,000 rooms. The Hilton Worldwide brand has more than 3,400 hotels throughout 79 countries. Its portfolio includes Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, Conrad Hotels & Resorts, Hilton, Doubletree, Embassy Suites Hotels, Hilton Garden Inn, Hampton Inn & Suites, Homewood Suites by Hilton, Home2 Suites by Hilton andHilton Grand Vacations.
