Hampton Inn & Suites Detroit Metro Airport Breaks Ground

Romulus, MI, November 17, 2008 --(PR.com)-- Owner Cooper Hotels completes airport development “hat trick”.

Management of the 126-unit, 38-suite Hampton Inn & Suites Detroit Metro Airport announced today that it has broken ground. Scheduled for completion in the fourth quarter of 2009, the 6-story hotel is located on Smith Road adjacent to the Hilton Garden Inn Detroit Metro Airport. Both properties are owned and operated by Memphis, Tenn.-based Cooper Hotels.

The Hampton Inn & Suites will be the company's third hotel at the Detroit Metro Airport. Cooper also owns and operates the recently opened Embassy Suites Detroit Metro Airport.

“On behalf of the City of Romulus, we congratulate Cooper Hotels for completing the hotel development 'hat trick' at the Detroit Metro Airport,” said Timothy Keyes, economic development director for the City of Romulus. “Cooper is an outstanding company providing a variety of high quality hotel products in the airport area, and the community appreciates their investment.”

Hampton Inn & Suites hotels have been designed to accommodate the lodging needs of both transient customers and guests staying three or more nights, including both business and leisure travelers. Unlike a typical Hampton Inn, the new Hampton Inn & Suites hotel will combine traditional guest rooms with larger suite rooms in a single property.

“Business and leisure travelers visiting the area will enjoy the same high-quality services and amenities that have made the Hampton chain one of the industry’s most popular and fastest growing brands,” said Phil Cordell, Hampton senior vice president, brand management.

The new hotel will include amenities such as the complimentary On The House Hot Breakfast served daily, complimentary high-speed Internet access, complimentary local telephone calls made from the room and the brand’s 100% Hampton satisfaction guarantee which guarantees each guest full satisfaction or their night’s stay is free. Guest rooms will also feature an open, under-the-counter bathroom vanity and curved shower rods for extra shower space. Also, an in-room coffee maker, iron and ironing board are standard in every room.

In addition, suite rooms offer a separate living and sleeping area and in-room kitchen amenities such as wet bar, refrigerator and microwave oven. All Hampton Inn & Suites also offer an on-site convenience shop and coin-laundry facility.

Members of the Hilton HHonors® guest reward program can earn HHonors points in addition to airline miles for every qualifying stay at the Hampton Inn & Suites Detroit Metro Airport. HHonors is the only hotel program that allows any of its members to reap Double Dip® earnings by simultaneously accumulating both airline miles and hotel points with each qualifying stay.
