Hilton is to open its first Hampton by Hilton hotel close to Blackpool Pleasure Beach.

The company has signed a franchise agreement with Create Developments Ltd to open a 130-room property in the seaside town in 2018.

Hilton said the opening coincided with a major investment by Blackpool Council to upgrade the town’s promenade and tram system in a bid to promote the area as a year-round family holiday destination.

“There is no better time to introduce one of our fastest-growing brands in the UK to one of Britain’s best known destinations,” said Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president, development, EMEA, Hilton.

It is the latest in a series of UK developments announced by Hilton, including plans for a high-rise hotel in Woking (2021),​ and 154-room site at Doncaster racecourse (2018).

The company currently operates 18 sites under its Hampton by Hilton brand in the UK, with a further 16 in development.

Hilton runs nearly 4,900 hotels across 14 brands worldwide, including the Waldorf Astoria, Hilton Garden Inn and Conrad Hotels & Resorts.
