MCLEAN, Va. - Hampton by Hilton adds 10 properties to its portfolio starting this summer to answer consumer traveler trends. The brand's stateside growth, which includes openings across the Midwest, Northeast and Southwest regions, will especially cater to families, with 70 percent planning to travel according to a recent AAA survey. The findings also revealed a significant increase in those planning to take three or more vacations, up 13 percent from 2016. This is expected to translate to shorter trips, closer to home, with family road trips topping the list as the most popular vacation type (79 percent).
