Hilton Garden Inn Emirates Old Trafford Manchester Review  

Hilton Garden Inn Emirates Old Trafford Manchester Review: March 2019

Located just three miles from Manchester city centre, with on-site parking, officially opened in 2017, the Emirates Old Trafford’s Hilton Garden Inn was the final part of the venue’s multi-million-pound redevelopment.

Located on the site of the fabulous and famous Lancashire cricket pitch, the hotel has a really energy and excitement about the place.

The reception was warm, welcoming and gave good vibes right from the offset.  Throughout the stay all staff were wonderful and made the hotel feel like home.

Décor a mix of subtle shades with a relaxing upholstered cosy island seating area, with of course cricket on the television.

The well-designed premium room with king bed, had a Serta mattress which gave me a great night’s sleep.  Additionally, the room included a 40-inch HDTV, mini-refrigerator, and coffee/tea making facilities.  Also, complimentary WiFi and a wonderful work desk with ergonomic chair.

A fabulous fresh fruity welcome platter and card awaited our arrival, which was fab, a nice extra gesture.

Combined with the fact that we were in a Pitch Facing room, overlooking the Cricket Pitch, with an external private balcony was a breath-taking moment and really made me genuinely smile.
