Hilton has announced that Arun Kumar and Deborah Acott will be leading Oxford’s first Hilton hotel, Hampton by Hilton, in the general manager and sales manager positions respectively.
Located on Grenoble Road, next to Oxford United Football Club’s Kassam Stadium, the hotel has created 25 full and part-time jobs.
General manager Kumar said: “The opening of this quality, mid-range hotel is great news for Oxford. There is definitely an appetite for both business and leisure travellers to visit the city and to stay in quality accommodation.
“For Hilton to be opening its first hotel in Oxford is also a great reflection on the city which already has a great reputation for both tourism and business.
“It’s therefore vital that the city can provide suitable accommodation to any new visitors and to have a highly respected brand like Hampton by Hilton in the city helps cement its position as a leading player for visitors.”
