DoubleTree by Hilton Hull hosts tour operator familiarisation visit

The DoubleTree by Hilton Hull hotel recently hosted a group of tour operators in partnership with Visit Hull and Steve Reed Tourism.

The familiarisation visit included over 30 national tour operators and saw them enjoy an overnight stay in the 4 star city centre hotel, as well as a two-course lunch in Marco Pierre White’s restaurant.

The action-packed itinerary included visits to the Maritime Museum and the Deep as well as the chance to experience the city’s Ale Trail. Delegates also got the chance to enjoy lunch and an exclusive rooftop tour at Hull Minster.

The group was made up of many high profile names from the group travel industry including Albatross group, Norman Allen Travel Group and Crusader Holidays.

Elizabeth Harwood, Director of Sales and Marketing at DoubleTree by Hilton Hull, said “It was a great pleasure to welcome representatives from the group travel industry and a great opportunity for us to showcase the hotel. We hope they enjoyed their brief stay with us and trust we have inspired them to return on future visits with their customers.”

Steve Reed of Steve Reed Tourism Ltd added “We very much enjoyed working with the DoubleTree Hilton Hull for the Visit Hull Group Buyer Showcase. The event, arranged by Visit Hull, and particularly Tourism Officer Tina Mott, was indeed superb and the choice of host hotel was ideal for groups.”

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.
