Chester's first Hilton hotel officially opened
AN AMERICAN delegation from the Hilton family of hotels flew into Chester to honour the £27.5 million redevelopment of Hoole Hall with the status of Doubletree by Hilton Chester.
Not only is this the first Hilton Hotel in Chester, but also only the third hotel in England to receive the converted Doubletree status from Hilton.
Senior officials from the Hilton Family of Hotels travelled to Chester to tour the hotel's impressive amenities and explore the city before official giving the hotel Doubletree by Hilton status.
Rett Stegall, senior brands director for Doubletree by Hilton based at offices in Beverley Hills, said: "I'm really happy and excited about bringing the Doubletree by Hilton brand to the Chester area.
"Doubletree is built on a culture of care and the team here at this hotel certainly reflect that philosophy.
"I just love Chester. I am envious of anyone who lives here. It's a joy to visit and now visitors will have the most perfect place to stay."
Tony Wright, general manager of Doubletree by Hilton Chester, said: "It has been a pleasure hosting our guests from America and we've been very proud to show-off the breathtaking transformation of the former Hoole Hall Hotel into something very special.
"With the amazing redevelopment of an idyllic 18th century manor; a team of committed professionals; and a fantastic location in one of the country's most attractive cities; this Doubletree by Hilton is destined to be very successful.
"Specialising in luxury, quality and service, it will certainly help put Chester on the map and bring further luxury to the city's accommodation and fine-dining experience."
In addition to its first-class guest rooms, fine cuisine and stylish function rooms, Doubletree by Hilton Hotels have built a reputation for its treat, the famous Doubletree chocolate chip cookie which can be found gently warming at reception ready to be enjoyed by all customers as they check-in.
