Hampton by Hilton opens in Bristol

AHampton by Hilton hotel, located on Bond Street and York Street, has opened in Bristol today.

Following a £20m investment, the 186-bedroom hotel is part of a ‘major’ conversion of York House, a 1960s office block.

Managed by Focus Hotel Management, the property features a restaurant, free Wi-Fi, a business centre, bar and fitness room and has created 46 jobs within the city.

Imran Ali, general manager at the hotel, said: “It’s great to be open and I’d like to thank the Lord Mayor for officially opening this fantastic new venue. Our location on Bond Street and proximity to the bottom of the M32 and Cabot Circus makes this new hotel a key asset for the city.

“To bring back to life a building that had stood empty for many years is also good news for the city and will hopefully stimulate the regeneration of more buildings in the area.

“It’s vital that the city can provide suitable accommodation to any new visitors and to have a highly respected brand like Hampton by Hilton in the city centre helps cement its position as a leading player for business and leisure.”
