Hampton Inn Hotel & Suites to Be Built in Kapolei
Hilton Worldwide has announced that they have come to an agreement to build a Hampton Inn & Suites at the planned Ka Makana Ali'i regional mall in Kapolei. The tentative plan is to build a 175-room hotel as part of the mall's 750,000 sq ft first phase. Construction will begin in mid-2015 and the Hampton Inn would open sometime in 2016. Hilton currently has six hotels and seven-time share properties in Hawaii, but does not have a Hampton hotel in the islands yet. Bill Fortier, a senior vice president of development for Hilton, commented, "As one of the world's most sought-after travel destinations, it is only fitting to expand Hampton Hotels to Hawaii, bringing a successful mid-priced product to the market."
