First Hampton Inn & Suites in Hawaii to Be Located at Ka Makana Ali`i

DeBartolo Development and Hampton Hotels today announced the first Hampton Inn & Suites in Hawaii will be located at Ka Makana Ali`i, the 1.4 million-square-foot regional mall being built in West Oahu.

The 175-key hotel centrally located in Kapolei will offer travelers and neighbor island residents visiting friends and family in the area affordable access to West Oahu. Construction on the hotel is slated to begin summer 2015.

“DeBartolo Development is very excited to welcome Hampton Inn & Suites to the growing roster of world-class tenants at Ka Makana Ali`i,” said Edward Kobel, President and Chief Operating Officer of DeBartolo Development. “The addition of a globally-recognized hotel brand to this market will make it easier for kamaaina and visitors alike to enjoy all West Oahu has to offer by providing high quality and affordable hotel accommodations.”

Featuring more than 150 new shops and restaurants, a movie theater, and LEED-certified office space, Ka Makana Ali`i will be Hawaii’s newest mall and the first regional shopping center to be built in more than 30 years. The center’s expanding roster of signed tenants includes anchor department store Macy’s, as well as Forever 21, H&M, and three GAP, Inc. brands.

The signing of Hampton’s first location in Hawaii means the brand will offer more than 2,000 locations globally including across all 50 states, as well as the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.

“Hawaii has been a part of Hilton Worldwide’s history since the 1960s with the opening of the first Hilton Hawaiian Village tower,” said Bill Fortier, senior vice president, development – Americas, Hilton Worldwide. “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.”

“This has been an exciting year for Hampton, having first celebrated 30 years as a brand, then opening our 2000th hotel in Bellevue, Washington, and now entering into the 50th U.S. state,“ said Phil Cordell, global head, focused service and Hampton brand management, Hilton Worldwide. “We’re excited to bring our friendly and authentic culture of Hamptonality to both business and leisure travelers visiting beautiful Oahu.”

Grading and grubbing activities for Ka Makana Ali`i are slated to begin in December with a formal construction start date announced soon thereafter. The first phase of the center, which includes more than 750,000 square feet of retail, dining, entertainment and hotel space, is scheduled to open in 2016.
