The 4-star DoubleTree by Hilton Nottingham - Gateway Hotel opened in March 2015 following a six million pound refurbishment which included all public areas, 141 guest rooms, and 10 meeting rooms. The hotel's current design is based on a fusion of city glamour and rustic charm; with the hotel being located in beautiful natural surroundings guests have the benefit of a city location within a tranquil setting. The hotel originally opened in the early 1990’s with pioneering streamlined architecture which has been enhanced during the hotel’s recent refurbishment. Designed so that the hotel lobby is flooded with natural daylight, the original vision for the hotel’s design fits in line with our current goals to provide environmentally and sustainable meetings at our property, with meeting planners fully aware that natural light increases productivity, energy levels, comfort, calmness and health.
The hotel is ideally situated just 3.5 miles from Nottingham city centre, and 1 mile from Junction 26 of the M1 motorway. A gateway to both the north and the south, Nottingham is conveniently situated at the heart of the UK, with excellent road, rail, and air links. Phoenix Park and Cinderhill tram stops are also within walking distance of the hotel and connect with Nottingham train station. The proximity of the M1, A1, A52 and A46 means that nearly half of the country's population lives within little more than an hour travel time, making Nottingham a convenient and cost effective destination for conferences. The hotel offers ease of access with 200 free car parking spaces which can accommodated coaches as well as cars.
