Hilton Worldwide, a US-based hotel conglomerate, has announced the opening of two new hotels at St George’s Park in Burton on Trent, UK.
The new dual branded property, Hilton at St George’s Park and Hampton by Hilton St George’s Park, is to open at St. George’s Park, which houses training and development facilities for the England Football Association.
Simon Vincent, the area president at Hilton Worldwide, said, ‘This summer has been a success for British sport, the tourism industry and Hilton Worldwide. Having operated at near full occupancy in London over the past fortnight, we are ahead of last year for the month of August and confident of a long lasting legacy, provided the right support mechanisms are put in place.
This week we have opened one of the most exciting hotel projects in living memory, one which combines the inspirational visions of both sports and tourism, with a special focus on youth development. With this and the wider momentum we’re seeing, there is an opportunity to not only encourage more visitors to Britain but inspire more young people into hospitality, which is an incredibly exciting and rewarding industry.’
Hilton at St George’s Park, Burton upon Trent, is offering around 91 guest rooms, 41 executive rooms and 14 suites, while Hampton by Hilton at St. George’s Park, Burton upon Trent, is offering 86 guest rooms, a fitness room, a snack area, complimentary hot breakfast and relaxation areas.
The company has entered into UK Government’s Youth Contract and Social Mobility Compact, to support young people entering the hospitality industry, and it is ready to introduce a new apprenticeship scheme to train those young people for jobs in the industry.
