Schaffhausen to welcome Hampton by Hilton hotel
Hotel giant Hilton has signed a franchise agreement with HRMP Schaffhausen AG, as was reported in a press release. Schaffhausen will therefore be the first to welcome a Hampton by Hilton hotel in Switzerland. “Schaffhausen has excellent transport links and is a commercial hub for international companies in the region, including UBS, IWC Schaffhausen and Georg Fischer,” commented Patrick Fitzgibbon, Senior Vice President, Development, EMEA, Hilton. “The hotel will help meet the increasing demand for quality and affordable accommodation for business travelers, as well as those visiting Schaffhausen for its picturesque architecture.”
The hotel will be located in the Herblingen Business Park, close to Herblingen railway station and just 30 kilometers from Zurich Airport. As the franchise holder, HRMP Schaffhausen AG will be in charge of bringing Hampton by Hilton to Switzerland. “This development in the Herblingen Business Park provides an exciting opportunity to bring an internationally recognized brand to a region experiencing significant investment,” said Miroslav Vuletic, Managing Director of HRMP Schaffhausen AG. Both private companies and the state “are relocating several head offices to the area. We cannot wait to welcome guests to Switzerland's first Hampton by Hilton hotel”.
The 112-room hotel is slated to open in 2021.
