MCLEAN, VA—Hilton Worldwide will build the organization’s first three-flag hotel development in Calgary, Canada.
The Calgary Airport Hotel Village will feature properties from Hampton Hotels, Hilton Hotels & Resorts and Homewood Suites by Hilton.
The project builds upon previous development models from Hilton Worldwide such as the dual-brand hotel from Homewood Suites.
“We have seen great success with models that step outside of traditional development constraints,” said Craig Mance, SVP of North American development, Hilton Worldwide. “These types of hotels offer developers savings in the construction and operational phases, while providing guests a variety of accommodations, price points and amenities to meet their individual needs.”
Exterior walkways and an underground parking garage will connect the three properties. The Hampton and Homewood Suites properties, which will open in late 2013, will share a pool and fitness center. The Hampton and Hilton hotels, the latter of which will open in late 2015, will be connected by a 14,000-sq.-ft. conference center.
The Hampton, Hilton and Homewood Suites hotels will have 135 rooms, 252 rooms and 122 suites, respectively. The Homewood Suites and Hampton hotels have broken ground, and construction on the Hilton property is scheduled to begin in Q2 2013.

The most recent NYU Conference, earlier this month proved, once and for all, that the lodging industry has finally turned the corner and happy days are, indeed, here again. While the economists and pundits all provided plenty of anecdotal evidence to bear that out in terms of supply and demand ratios, RevPAR projections, asset values and all the other metrics, that’s not what has me convinced.
