The giant Hilton Hotels Corporation has signed a franchise deal with Liverpool John Lennon airport owner Peel Holdings to open a 160-room Hampton by Hilton hotel next to the airport this summer.

And international hotel group Millennium & Copthorne Hotels has been named as the operator of two new hotels in Liverpoolís Central Village development.

It is the second Hampton by Hilton destined for the city after the group announced plans last year for a similar development on Liverpoolís Kings Dock.

The Hilton Liverpool will also open this spring in the £1bn Liverpool One scheme, bringing the total of Hiltonís to three in a city it previously had no presence in.
