Hampton Inn, which is now also known as Hampton by Hilton, is a subsidiary of Hilton. This hotel franchise is among the largest in the United States and also has locations in Europe, India and South America. Hampton Inn hotels fall into the upper-midscale range. Some locations are called Hampton Inns and Suites, offering suites in addition to hotel rooms. Hampton Inns offer limited food and beverage services. The brand is attractive to tour groups and conferences, providing a variety of facilities. The Hampton brand continues to grow, opening new locations every year.

Why Choose Us?

The Hampton Inn brand is highly recognized for the quality of the service it promises. The brand has a strong track record of success and continues to enjoy substantial growth.

The parent company, Hilton, provides strong brand marketing for Hampton and continues to develop and implement a variety of upgrades designed to maintain the brand's current appeal. Franchisees receive extensive and specific training for key personnel in a variety of areas, from using the proprietary software to maintaining ADA compliance. Hilton provides specific guidance as well as resources designed to help franchisees operate the hotel in accordance with Hampton Inn standards.

Ideal Candidate

Hampton Inn projects an average investment of $6,903,800 - $17,091,650. It charges a $75,000 franchise application fee, which can vary depending on circumstances. To operate a Hampton Inn, a franchisee must own appropriate premises or hold a long-term lease for them. Hilton mandates highly specific operational guidelines, including the use of proprietary software and various equipment. Experience in hotel management is highly preferred; in cases where Hilton determines a lack of adequate experience, it may accept the franchise application but require management by Hilton or an approved company.


The first Hampton Inn opened in 1984. At the time, it was owned by the Holiday corporation, which started the brand as a budget hotel chain. In 1989, Holiday-originated holding company Promus Hotel Corporation focused on upgrading the Hampton Inn hotels to bring them into the middle market. As part of the drive to begin competing with mid-range hotels, Hampton Inn became the first to start including a complimentary continental breakfast. This period also introduced the 100% satisfaction guarantee. The strategy proved successful; in 1990, there were over 220 Hampton Inn locations. In 1995, the chain introduced Hampton Inns and Suites, which offered suites with kitchens and living rooms.

Hilton Worldwide bought Promus, including its Hampton Inn brand, in 1999. As of 2004, Hilton dedicated focused efforts and resources to bring further upgrades to the Hampton Inn hotels. Small yet essential touches included hot options at the free breakfast, free room internet and a hi-tech alarm and mp3 player in every room.

2012 and the ensuing years saw further upgrades designed to appeal to a younger demographic. Changes included updated design elements inside and outside, power access panels in the bedside tables and expanded lobbies.

Today, Hampton Inn continues to expand its locations yearly. While most are located within the United States, locations are opening throughout the world, including the recent opening of a Hampton at the Dubai International Airport and plans for new openings in Chile, France and China.
