Anyone travelling to South Yorkshire in 2020 should note that the Hilton Sheffield hotel is closing for good on 15th December.
According to The Star, the operator has surrendered the lease on the building. It is possible that the owner decides to re-lease it to another hotel operator, although it could be turned into offices or apartments.
I stayed here once a couple of years ago and it was totally acceptable. The location is pleasant but competition has been increasing – a Holiday Inn Express opened immediately behind it, and the downtrodden Holiday Inn – also directly behind it – has been reborn this Summer as Crowne Plaza Royal Victoria Sheffield.
There are two other Hilton options in Sheffield but neither is great for the business traveller. The DoubleTree is out of town whilst the Hampton Sheffield is in a weird location and, whilst nominally central, is likely to still need a bus, tram or taxi to get you to where you need to be.
