On the eve of the European Football Championship many major players of the hotel industry rushed to Poland. Among the recent new projects is construction of a new Hampton by Hilton hotel near the main international airport in Warsaw - Frederic Chopin airport.
Hilton will act as a franchising company. Yesterday it became known that the Polish construction agency Condite Spó┼éka was chosen as the general contractor.
Hampton by Hilton is one of the Hilton brands representing economy class hotels. According to the project, new hotel will be designed for 116 rooms. New Hilton hotel will be located only 800 meters from the airport terminal entrance. The hotel will be designed both for tourists and business travelers.
As noted in a press release of the construction company, the offer from Condite Spó┼éka met all developer’s requirements. Condite Spó┼éka was also able to offer the lowest price among all applicants. Opening of the new hotel is scheduled for mid 2013. Port-Hotel company especially created at the Warsaw International Airport will act as the founder and general manager of the hotel.
It should be noted that Hilton is developing its network in Poland not only in big cities, but also at the Polish Baltic Sea resorts. For example, recently another Hampton by Hilton was opened at one of the most famous seaside resorts of Poland Swinoujscie. Today Polish hotel industry is experiencing a tourism boom. In 2011 the average hotel occupancy rate increased by more than 7%. One of the major developing regions apart from Polish cities and towns, which will host European Football Championship 2012, became Pomerania. According to Eurostat, during the last 5 years the number of hotels in Pomerania has grown from 113 to 158.
Currently the most famous Hilton hotels in Poland are Hilton Warsaw Hotel, Convention Centre in Warsaw and Hilton Gdansk.
