Hampton by Hilton opens its first NI hotel


With 2,346 properties in 21 countries across the globe, Hampton is one of Hilton’s most successful brands. Being Hilton’s ‘focussed service’ brand, Hampton offers free WiFi for all guests, a well-appointed bedroom and a complimentary cooked breakfast. A 24-hour food and dinner service is also available in its open plan lobby concept. It’s no surprise Hampton by Hilton’s service is backed by an unconditional satisfaction promise- the 100% Hampton Guarantee.

Located just off Great Victoria Street in Belfast city centre, the nine-storey, 178-bedroom hotel will be owned and operated by Andras Hotels. Director of Andras Hotels, Rajesh Rana said: “This is our first opening with Hilton and we are very excited to be bringing Hampton by Hilton to Ireland. Hilton see Belfast as a key market and they are delighted to be placing their flag on our great city”

“The hotel will serve the very strong and growing mid-market range, for both the business and leisure traveller – and will give a real boost to the tourism offering of the city. Visit Belfast and Tourism NI have been very supportive as they recognise the importance of well known and loved brands opening in the city.

“We have a great team at the hotel, who really embody and embrace the ‘Hamptonality ’ brand personality. They have worked extremely hard to get the hotel open and they are really excited to be welcoming their first guests.

“I am proud to be investing £25million across three hotel projects in Belfast, bring a total of 270 additional bedrooms to the city. I would like to thank Danske Bank for their continuing support and encouragement.

Head of Corporate Relationship Danske Bank, Lewis McCallan, stated: “I must congratulate Andras Hotels on their new opening. This is yet another milestone for the Group and for the City, as it brings a new and exciting brand to Belfast’s hospitality market at a time when this sector is arguably at its most vibrant.
