Second time consecutively the hotel has won in this category following its initial win in 2015. Andy Gray, Tourism Manager, Visit Hull and East Yorkshire said “2017 has been an amazing year for us with UK City of Culture status putting Hull and East Yorkshire on the national and international visitor map. The opening of the new DoubleTree by Hilton gave us the opportunity to host our awards in Hull city centre for the first time and it was the perfect choice for our flagship event of the year. The DoubleTree is a real asset to our ever growing portfolio of venues and we look forward to working with the team in the months and years to come.”
