DoubleTree by Hilton Hull partner with Hull Trains in a bid to attract major events
HULL Trains is all set to get on board with the DoubleTree by Hilton Hull hotel in a bid to attract large, high-profile events to the city.
The 4* hotel which opened two years ago will be working alongside Hull Trains by offering potential clients a range of special offers and discounts on travel when hosting events in the city.
News of the special partnership comes on the back of the recent £60 million investment by Hull Trains on five new high tech Hitachi trains. The award-winning operator runs 92 direct services a week from Hull and the Humber region direct to London.
Lizzie Harwood, Director of Sales and Marketing at The DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel said “We’re delighted to be working with Hull Trains on this initiative to ensure that we are attracting big events to the city. The hotel boasts a purpose built events centre and is the largest hotel event space in Hull & East Yorkshire holding 1,000 people for a wide range of events. By being able to offer travel incentives we hope to attract new events to the city that wouldn’t have considered Hull in the past. We’re very much looking forward to working with Hull Trains and look forward to seeing what our new founded partnership can bring to the city”
Louise Cheeseman, Managing Director of Hull Trains added: “Hull is a city which we are proud to represent and by working with DoubleTree by Hilton Hull, we can encourage more people see what our fantastic city has to offer. Now with our new fleet of state-of-the-art Paragon trains, travel to and from Hull and the capital is more comfortable than ever. I hope this new partnership will help to bring more tourism and leisure events into the city.”
The Double Tree by Hilton Hull boasts 165 modern bedrooms as well as a Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill and The Lexington Rooftop Bar & Terrace providing panoramic skyline views of the city. For business events the hotel has several meeting rooms as well as a large, flexible, pillar free ballroom which can accommodate 1,000 delegates theatre style or can be divided into four different rooms for smaller events. It is the largest, dedicated hotel events space in the city covering 1,500 square metres, making it ideal for large, high profile events.
