Downtown Hampton Hotel Renovations Are Complete

HAMPTON—The hotel overlooking The Docks @ Downtown Hampton marina has changed owners and names several times over the last few years. After recent renovations, it currently goes by The Landing Hotel by Hilton, and is open for business again. The iconic nine-story building is one of the first properties approved by the Tapestry Collection by Hilton brand.

Chester, Virginia-based Shamin hotels—the owners of the building—hired a national leader in hospitality design to work with Hilton on the unique design of the hotel. The Tapestry brand is positioned to appeal to travelers looking for comfort, convenience, and reliability while still allowing each hotel to keep its individual spirit and design. The concept offers guests an independent, boutique-style experience along with a reputation backed by Hilton’s standard for service and cleanliness.

The newly renovated space provides a complement of services and amenities, including 173 guest rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Hampton River, 10,000 square feet of event space, an indoor/outdoor bar, and a rooftop pool deck. This is in addition to free WiFi, non-smoking rooms, an on-site restaurant, free parking, a fitness center, a business center, and meeting rooms.

The renovation is expected to bring additional visitors to the area to enjoy the shops, restaurants, museums, and local brew pubs that are all within walking distance.
