Hampton by Hilton, the global hotel brand known for its commitment to authentic service and great value, celebrated its Middle East debut last month with the opening of Hampton by Hilton Dubai Airport, marking the largest property in Hampton’s global portfolio. The opening bolsters Hampton’s international footprint of more than 2,380 hotels in 22 countries and territories.

“Hampton continues to bring quality accommodations, strong value, and outstanding service everywhere travelers need and want to be,” said Shruti Gandhi Buckley, global head, Hampton by Hilton. She added, “Hampton by Hilton Dubai Airport will be led by General Manager Nayla Chowdhury, whose appointment signifies Hilton’s growing international female leadership representation.”

The contemporary 420-room hotel is located near the Dubai International Airport and the Dubai Airport Freezone Authority (DAFZA). The hotel features a state-of-the-art rooftop gym with panoramic views of the Dubai skyline, a large infinity pool and a fully licensed bar. Guests will immediately feel at home with the property’s warm and modern interiors, flowing with natural light and complemented by touches of lavender, gold, and locally inspired artwork that adorn the hotel walls and corridors.

The highly anticipated property brings Hampton’s signature value-added services and amenities for the first time to the region, offering free, hot breakfast with healthy options, spacious rooms, complimentary Wi-Fi, and a 24/7 business center.

Globally recognized for its unmatched approach to hospitality and friendly, caring service culture known as ‘Hamptonality’, Hampton aims to serve the region’s growing demand for mid-market hotels – particularly among millennial travelers, who are increasingly prioritizing value in their search for accommodation. A recent survey of just over 1,000 respondents conducted by Hilton in partnership with YouGov found that when choosing between two destinations, almost half (44%) of UAE travelers were likely to base their decision on overall travel cost.

General Manager Chowdury, who has over 20 years of operational and commercial experience across multiple full service brands within the Hilton family, said she was proud to be the first female Hotel Manager in Hilton for the Arabian Peninsula region, and that she relished the challenge to open the largest and first-ever Hampton by Hilton in the Middle East in Dubai.

“With Dubai’s vision of welcoming 20 million tourists annually to the emirate by 2020, diversifying its hospitality offering has become a major priority for the travel and tourism sector,” Ms. Chowdury told The Times Kuwait in an informal chat.

 “Today’s travelers are increasingly looking for affordable hospitality without compromising on quality. They want a hotel in a well-connected location, with clean and modern rooms, free Wi-Fi, and friendly, reliable, quality service. This is precisely what the Hampton by Hilton brand offers,” she added.

To receive instant benefits, including lowest price available online, free Wi-Fi and Hilton Honors points that can be used towards free nights, guests are encouraged to join Hilton Honors, and Book Direct.
