Peel Holdings (Leisure) today announced the signing of a franchise agreement with Hilton Hotels for its new hotel at Liverpool John Lennon Airport to be operated under the Hampton by Hilton marque.
Due to open in summer 2009, the 160-bedroom hotel is part of a £37m development that includes a multi-storey car park. The hotel will allow guests to walk directly to the terminal building across a new bridge linking the terminal and this new development.
Hampton by Hilton claims to be a "new kind of economy hotel offering consistency and comfort for business and leisure travellers".
The hotel will be Peel`s second airport hotel, following on from the successful opening of Ramada Encore at Robin Hood Airport Doncaster Sheffield in autumn last year, and further hotels are planned throughout the group's portfolio.
Peter de la Perrelle, director of Peel Holdings (Leisure), said: "The Hampton by Hilton continues the successful development of Liverpool John Lennon Airport and will bring a quality hotel product to the Airport where guests will be able to walk undercover from the hotel directly to the terminal building. It is expected that this agreement will be the first of many with Hilton as Peel Holdings continues to develop its hotel estate."
