BOSSES of a hotel giant have revealed that its two sites at the national football centre in Burton have been merged into one.
Hilton and Hampton by Hilton at St George’s Park will now be known as the Hilton at St George’s Park following a decision by bosses located at the hotel at the £105 million facility.
While both previously existed under the same roof, now all of the guest rooms are Hilton compact guest rooms, executive guest rooms or suites
A spokesman for the hotel said: “The site features 228 contemporary bedrooms, state-of-the-art conference facilities, restaurant and health club and spa.
“The hotel is fast establishing itself as a premier conference and leisure resort.”
This comes only weeks after staff at the site were left celebrating after scooping a top award.
Hilton at St George’s Park was dubbed ‘outstanding’ after being awarded the 2013 Connie Award by Hilton Hotels & Resorts as part of the company’s 2013 brand awards of excellence.
The hotel has been a central part of the Burton-based site since it opened in 2012, regularly playing host to a wide range of footballers from the England team to players who ply their trade in America.
Greg Crawford, general manager at Hilton at St George’s Park, said: “The entire team at Hilton at St George’s Park is honoured to have received the 2013 Connie Award.
“We are dedicated to providing superior service to our guests, and this achievement recognises our hotel team members’ commitment and authentic Hilton hospitality this past year.”
The award is the highest gong that bosses at the firm can bestow, and bears the name of the company’s founder, Conrad Hilton.
