This year, the Hilton hotel group are celebrating 100 years of hospitality and we were delighted to be invited to stay as part of these celebrations. Hilton East Midlands Airport is conveniently located just minutes from the airport and the M1 and as we found out is much more than a place to stay before catching a flight.
We arrived at the hotel in the afternoon and upon arriving and walking into the spacious reception the aviation theme was instantly apparent with lots of little details throughout (look out for the series of cute little planes on the ceiling!) Check in was one of the smoothest we have ever experienced and within minutes we had reserved a table for our evening meal and were on our way up to the room.
Attention to detail and a personal touch is something that we noticed during our stay and it was delightful to find a couple of Pina Coladas waiting for us when we entered the room which was a delicious way to start the evening (Interesting fact: the Pina Colada was invented by Ramón Marrero, bartender at the Caribe Hilton San Juan in the 1950s!)
