DoubleTree by Hilton Celebrates its 25th UK Hotel

Superior Queen Bedroom 13

DoubleTree by Hilton is now welcoming guests at its 25th hotel in the UK – DoubleTree by Hilton Nottingham – Gateway. The hotel is operated under a franchise with Exceptional Resorts and Hotels (UK) Ltd, which will manage the hotel. Renovations began in 2013 with an estimated investment of £5.5 million.

DoubleTree by Hilton hotels offer an industry-recognized service culture built around the idea of CARE, which stands for Create a Rewarding Experience for guests, team members and the community. DoubleTree by Hilton Nottingham – Gateway embodies this culture, offering the brand’s signature warm chocolate chip cookie on arrival, welcoming guestrooms, and picturesque views across the moat which surrounds the hotel, all contributing to a peaceful stay.

The new hotel houses 105 guestrooms and suites, with 250 parking spaces. The guestrooms include a comfortable bed, modern en suite shower room, and complimentary in-room tea and coffee making facilities, as well as complimentary Wi-Fi and hardwired access. In the morning, guests are invited to a Wake Up DoubleTree BreakfastTM, which offers both healthy and hearty options to start the day.

John Greenleaf, Global Head, DoubleTree by Hilton, said, “Having introduced DoubleTree by Hilton to the strategic UK market in 2008 it is a great pleasure to welcome DoubleTree by Hilton Nottingham – Gateway to our portfolio, marking our 25th trading hotel. Nottingham adds a fantastically diverse location to our portfolio, giving guests the chance to visit a number of attractions, including impressive sports grounds, and explore local literary heritage, before returning to a delicious meal and a warm bed at our newest hotel.”

Guests have the option to enjoy gourmet food at the hotel’s Blossoms restaurant, which offers picturesque views over the moat. Set in the heart of the building, the restaurant is bright and fresh with designs of natural wood, marble and foliage, and serves both a set menu and an a-la-carte option. Guests can unwind in the Topaz Bar, which serves drinks and snacks until late, or order from the in-room dining service. A further option, The Lobby, is designed in the style of a beautiful Victorian conservatory, and serves a charming afternoon tea.

In Nottingham, guests can visit the Major Oak in Sherwood Forest; or visit Newstead Abbey, the ancestral home of Lord Byron. The city is home to popular sports grounds Nottingham Forest Football Club and Trent Bridge cricket ground, as well as the National Watersports Centre, which has seen a boost in popularity since London hosted the Olympics in 2012, and it is now where a number of top Olympic athletes train.

Mandy Goldsmith, general manager, DoubleTree by Hilton Nottingham – Gateway said, “I am very excited to be opening the doors to the public after two years of renovation. DoubleTree by Hilton is celebrated for its industry-recognized CARE culture, which promises to Create a Rewarding Experience for guests. The hotel is built in a wildlife haven, surrounded by woodland, which offers guests a quiet and restful stay, whilst also remaining central to tourist attractions and travel opportunities.”

DoubleTree by Hilton Nottingham – Gateway, can be found at Nuthall Road, Nottingham, NG8 6AZ. For more information, or to book a room, visit DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Nottingham – Gateway, or phone +44 (0)1159 794949.

Several attempts were made to popularise different languages…
