The Hampton Hotels franchise began in 1984 in Memphis, Tennessee. Hampton set itself apart from other hotels by offering free cable TV and complimentary continental breakfast. Eleven years later the brand expanded with its concept, Hampton Inns & Suites, which offered condominium-like accommodations such as kitchens, living rooms, and separate bedrooms. Shortly after introducing Hampton Inns and Suites, the Hampton Hotels franchise was purchased by Hilton Worldwide whose other brands include Hilton Garden Inn, Homewood Suites by Hilton, DoubleTree by Hilton, Home2 Suites by Hilton, Hilton Grand Vacations, Conrad Hotels & Resorts, and Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts.
