Hilton has announced plans to open a Hilton Garden Inn overlooking the Silverstone motor racing circuit in Northamptonshire.
Due to open in early 2020, it will include a rooftop terrace and offer raceday hospitality experiences for all the major sporting events held at the venue. It will also have direct access to the Silverstone conference centre.
The new build hotel will be constructed on Silverstone’s International Pits straight, with extensive views over the track. Guests will be able to enjoy views of the circuit from their guestroom balconies.
Hilton has a slightly odd niche in stadium hotels. In the UK, it already has the Hilton Ageas Bowl in Southampton, the catchily named Hilton Garden Inn Manchester Emirates Old Trafford and the soon-to-open Hilton Garden Inn Doncaster Racecourse.
