City Centre Hotel to Convert to DoubleTree by Hilton

4:09pm 10th April 2017

Monkbar Hotel is about to embark on a further £3m programme of expansion and refurbishment enabling to become the city’s first DoubleTree by Hilton.

Hilton has signed a franchise agreement with Leisurepoint, a wholly owned subsidiary of Shiva Hotels, to open DoubleTree by Hilton York.

The latest round and conversion under DoubleTree by Hilton will expand the hotel’s guest room count to 140.

The property’s regeneration, due for completion later this year, will also include a new fitness centre, re-configured reception and new dining concept.

Graham Usher, general manager said:

“The conversion under DoubleTree by Hilton is a milestone in the hotel’s 27 year history.

The latest round of redevelopment will ensure DoubleTree by Hilton York’s place as one of the finest hotels in this city’s centre.

“This is fantastic news for us and demonstrates the confidence in the team here to deliver exceptional hospitality to our guests.

The project is also great for the city of York – a testament to the city as a business and travel destination.”

The hotel is scheduled to join DoubleTree by Hilton in late autumn with the construction of new guest rooms, followed by improvements to the public areas and existing bedrooms.
