Hilton Nottingham Completes £6.5 Million Investment

Hilton Nottingham is onto the finishing touches on a £6.5 million hotel transformation project, which features the redesign and extensive refurbishment of 176 guestrooms, including bathrooms, corridors, noise insulation, installation of air-conditioning and reviewed bedroom layouts.

Sue Cave, general manager of Hilton Nottingham, is thrilled to present this stunning and modernised hotel to its guests.

"I feel honoured to have been a part of this amazing renovation project and thank all our residents, team, and customers for their patience. It has been worth the wait. We look forward to welcoming guests to experience this brand new offering and continuing to deliver our signature, first-class hospitality at Hilton Nottingham."

Throughout the renovation process, the team at Hilton Nottingham learned more about the hotel's history with the help of local historian Janine Tanner.

Hilton Nottingham was originally built next to the old Nottingham Victoria Station, which opened in 1900. Once the railway station was nearing completion, in July 1899, the Nottingham Joint Station Committee and Sir John Blundell Maple Bart MP signed an agreement for the Maple company to erect a hotel connected to the as-yet-unnamed station.

In 1903, three years after the Victoria Station was completed, the hotel
officially opened and proudly bore the name 'Victoria Station Hotel'. Sometime after 1950, the word 'station' was dropped, and the hotel became the 'Victoria Hotel'.

After the station was demolished in 1967, the Victoria Hotel launched a railway-themed pub in the basement, called the 'Whistle Stop'. Seating in the Platform Bar comprised an array of luggage trollies and milk churns, and the room was adorned with railway posters. There was also the Waiting Room Bar and buffet and the Carriage Bar.

In honour of the site's rich history, Hilton Nottingham has adopted this theme throughout the hotel, showcasing bespoke Nottingham City artwork throughout the newly renovated guestrooms.

Located in the heart of the city, next to the Victoria Centre, Hilton Nottingham is within walking distance of many attractions, including Theatre Royal, Nottingham Trent University, Nottingham Castle, Old Market Square, and Motorpoint Arena. The hotel is also only a 15-minute and 40-minute drive from Wollaton Hall and Sherwood Forest, respectively.

 

Hilton Nottingham provides a complement of services and brand amenities, including 176 refurbished guestrooms, indoor pool, gym and sauna, seven flexible meeting and events spaces for up to 200 guests, Bric Bar & Kitchen with outdoor terrace, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, 24-hour room service, free Wi-Fi in all public areas and in bedrooms for Hilton Honors members.
