DoubleTree by Hilton Hull has announced its new partnership with Hull Trains, which aims to attract large, high-profile events to the city.
DoubleTree by Hilton Hull, which consists of 165 bedrooms and several meeting rooms, alongside a ballroom which can accommodate 1,000 delegates, will provide clients a range of offers and discounts on travel when hosting events in the city through the new partnership. Hull Trains runs 92 direct services a week from Hull and the Humber region, which are direct to London.
It has also recently invested £60 million on five new high-tech Hitachi trains. Lizzie Harwood, Director of Sales and Marketing at the DoubleTree by Hilton, said: “The hotel boasts a purpose-built event centre and is the largest hotel event space in Hull & East Yorkshire holding 1,000 people for a wide range of events.”
By offering travel incentives, Harwood hopes that Hilton Hull will “attract new events to the city that wouldn’t have considered Hull in the past.”
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.”
Cheeseman continued: “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.”
