Hampton’s success can be attributed to the brand’s willingness to continually listen to its franchisees and incorporate their input into each development and innovation program. Valuable information such as this allowed Hampton to foresee the need for change early and make key upgrades before they became mainstream standards. The brand also acknowledged the need to expand outside North America and grow globally through recent hotel openings in Europe. Most importantly, Hampton recognizes that each hotel’s’ first and foremost objective is to put the guest first, a belief reinforced through a unique team culture that stretches across the brand at every level.
