Hilton announces 3-hotel project in Canada

Hilton Worldwide announced an agreement to build a three-flag hotel development in Calgary, Canada.

The project, under development by Prestige Hospitality, will feature properties from Hampton Hotels, Hilton Hotels & Resorts and Homewood Suites by Hilton.

The Calgary Airport Hotel Village will allow the hotels to share certain facilities. Exterior walkways and an underground parking garage will connect the three properties, while the Hampton and Homewood Suites will share a pool and fitness center, and the Hampton and Hilton hotels will be joined by a 14,000 sq ft (1,300 sq m) conference center.

The Homewood Suites and Hampton properties are scheduled to open in Q4 2013, while the Hilton Hotel is expected to open in the fourth quarter of 2015. The Homewood Suites and Hampton hotels have already broken ground, and construction of the Hilton property is expected to begin in the second quarter of 2013. The Hampton, Hilton and Homewood properties will have 135 guesttrooms, 252 guestrooms and 122 guestroom suites respectively.

“We have seen great success with models that step outside of traditional development constraints,” said Craig Mance, senior vice president, North American development, Hilton Worldwide. “These types of hotels offer developers savings in the construction and operational phases, while providing guests a variety of accommodations, price points and amenities to meet their individual needs.”
