Doncaster welcomes its first Hilton property today, with the opening of Hilton Garden Inn Doncaster Racecourse coinciding with the start of the 2018 William Hill St Leger Festival.
The hotel joins eight existing Hilton Garden Inn properties in the UK, including two located on stadium grounds, demonstrating the award-winning midscale brand’s commitment to fulfilling the accommodation requirements of event goers, sport enthusiasts, and business travellers alike.
Conveniently situated on the grounds of the racecourse, Hilton Garden Inn Doncaster Racecourse offers a unique venue for culture, sport, conferences and events. The hotel is set to meet Doncaster’s growing demand for quality, affordable rooms, driven by the influx of visitors coming to experience all that the historic English town has to offer. According to the Doncaster Free Press, the town welcomed nearly 6.5 million visitors over a three-year period ending in 2015 – of those, it is estimated nearly 200,000 attended the St Leger horseracing festival.
The perfect address for racegoers and an ideal conference destination, Hilton Garden Inn Doncaster Racecourse offers 154 guestrooms, all equipped with the latest technology and ergonomic comfort for maximum convenience. This includes Digital Key, Hilton’s mobile-enabled room key technology that allows guests to simply and securely unlock their room door using their smartphone.
The property is just minutes away from Lakeside Village shopping centre, Doncaster Dome, museums, art galleries, golf courses, and award-winning markets. Yorkshire Wildlife Park is just under a 15-minute drive and Cusworth Hall is only 30 minutes away. When it’s time to travel, guests can enjoy quick access to the railway station, Doncaster Sheffield Airport, and major arteries linking the town to other cities.
“We’re excited to bring Hilton Garden Inn to the heart of Doncaster, a cherished, historical cornerstone of England,” said Louise Thrussell, the hotel’s general manager.
“Hilton Garden Inn Doncaster Racecourse perfectly blends contemporary, outstanding service with classic favourites – from our warm and inviting guestrooms, offering plenty of space for both work and relaxation, to a freshly prepared breakfast at our signature restaurant, The Garden Grille. And with the added convenience offered by our amenities, including daily evening room service, an around-the-clock shop for light snacks and refreshments, business centre, and fitness centre, guests will always feel right at home.”
Hilton Garden Inn Doncaster Racecourse joins two other Hilton Garden Inn stadium properties – Hilton Garden Inn Sunderland (at the Stadium of Light) and Hilton Garden Inn Manchester Emirates Old Trafford.
