From Breakfast to Bedtime: Hampton’s Comprehensive Guest Experience

On top of that, the brand also identified a set of signature experiences to drive brand distinctiveness and delight guests.

Focusing on what matters most to travellers – a good night’s sleep and a delicious breakfast – Hampton by Hilton identified two key experiences to elevate: the renowned Hampton Sleep Happy program and the ever-popular Hampton Waffle.

A Modernised Look for Hampton by Hilton

This exciting move signals Hampton by Hilton’s dedication to staying at the forefront of the travel industry, prioritising both cutting-edge design and an exceptional guest experience.

Hampton by Hilton understands the importance of staying relevant and appealing to a global audience. They conducted extensive research to ensure their refreshed brand identity resonated with modern travellers worldwide. This research spanned three continents and involved thousands of consumers.
