Hilton Garden Inn at Emirates Old Trafford celebrates topping out

Emirates Old Trafford and Lancashire County Cricket Club is celebrating reaching the highest point in the construction of its brand new Hilton Garden Inn Hotel.

Representatives from contractor Galliford Try, Trafford Borough Council and Emirates Old Trafford were on the roof of the new development to celebrate the milestone.

The Hilton Garden Inn at Emirates Old Trafford is the crowning glory in the Club’s re-development plans. With 150 bedrooms, 85 of which will be pitch facing, a restaurant, fitness centre and adjoining coffee shop, it cements Emirates Old Trafford as a truly world-class sporting, music and business destination.

Daniel Gidney, CEO at Emirates Old Trafford said “We are thrilled to have reached this key point in the construction and I’m delighted to share the celebration with our Partners, Trafford Council. The hotel will strengthen our already successful conference and events business as well as providing fantastic facilities for international cricket and of course, concerts at Emirates Old Trafford.”

Sean Anstee, Leader of Trafford Council added “It is an exciting day not only for Lancashire County Cricket Club but for the borough of Trafford as a whole. It will be fantastic to have on our doorstep, a brand new state-of-the art hotel, providing jobs, supporting the already impressive array of cultural attractions, and helping to increase visitors to the area. I look forward to following its development in the coming weeks and months.”

The 150-room Hilton Garden Inn hotel will allow the Club to progress its continued growth of the conference and events business, and firmly establish the stadium as one of the leading cricket, music and business venues in the UK.

The Hilton Garden Inn at Emirates Old Trafford is due to be completed in the summer of 2017 in time for the Fourth Investec Test Match between England and South Africa, starting on Friday 4th August.
