Hampton by Hilton

Utrecht Central Station

In commission of First Sponsor Group, Mulderblauw made the design for Hampton by Hilton Utrecht Central Station in the newly built ‘Poortgebouw’ in Utrecht.


New Hoog Catharijne

The ‘Poortgebouw’ is the connecting building between the Central Station and the city centre of Utrecht, and is part of the brand-new Hoog Catharijne shopping mall.



The hotel is accessible from the so-called ‘Stadskamer’, the beating heart of the new shopping mall, located on the first floor. From the Stadskamer, the public space of the hotel is easily reachable by elevator. Situated on the third floor, the public space of the hotel looks out over the shopping audience in the ‘Noordpassage’. On the three subsequent floors you can find the 193 Hampton by Hilton rooms. Several rooms have a clear view towards the Catharijnesingel.



Not only is one of the canals of Utrecht visible in the beautiful view over the ‘Singel’ in certain rooms, the canals are also represented in the interior design of the hotel. References to these characteristic Utrecht elements can be found in the choice of materials and the artwork.


Historic & contemporary

For instance, the rooms are adorned with historical images of the Catharijnesingel, surprisingly combined with contemporary views of the Utrecht canals.
