Following a franchise agreement with established partner Primestar Hospitality GmbH, Hilton is slated to open one of the world's largest Hampton by Hilton hotels in Vienna, Austria, in 2024.

"In Europe, Hampton by Hilton has more than doubled its portfolio in the last five years, arriving in new markets including Belgium, Latvia and Austria, which welcomed 32 million international visitors in 2019," said Patrick Fitzgibbon, Senior Vice President, Development, EMEA. "Working with our trusted partner Primestar, we are excited to build on the brand's Viennese presence with a second Hampton by Hilton, the largest in Europe and a valuable addition to the brand's European portfolio."
As part of a EUR40 million development, Hampton by Hilton Vienna City West will feature 358 modern guestrooms with contemporary furnishings and signature bedding. The hotel will offer a fully-equipped fitness centre and a multi-functional open concept lobby space created to accommodate guests' travel needs. Hampton by Hilton's complimentary breakfast will also be available at Hampton by Hilton Vienna City West, preparing guests for a day of exploration and discovery.
