Hilton Garden Inn Re-opens

Hilton Garden Inn Emirates Old Trafford re-opens to the general public

The Hilton Garden Inn Emirates Old Trafford has re-opened its doors to the general public having successfully hosted England Cricket’s bio-secure behind-closed-doors fixtures this summer.

The hotel, which last week celebrated its third birthday having opened in September 2017, was temporarily closed back in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic but has since hosted international cricket teams including England, West Indies, Pakistan and Australia after Emirates Old Trafford was awarded 21 days of International behind-closed-doors cricket by the England and Wales Cricket Board.

Social distancing measures are in place throughout the hotel, with all customer touch points reduced wherever possible. Hilton Honours Members will be able to access Hilton’s digital key which means guests can check in via the app, and therefore don’t require to check in, in the usual sense, at the main reception desk on arrival at the hotel. The hotel’s restaurant and bar, The Garden Grille, will also re-open to the public, as well Emirates Old Trafford’s on-site Caffè Nero.

The hotel staff have taken key learnings from hosting guests during behind closed doors cricket and are also now delivering Hilton’s ‘CleanStay’ initiative, an industry defining standard of cleanliness and disinfection to ensure that visitors feel safe while on-site in the Hilton Garden Inn. The policy includes new procedures to help guests across Hilton hotels enjoy a cleaner and safer stay, and also forms part of the Emirates Old Trafford ‘Safe in One Place’ campaign. The initiative, which was launched last month, offers guidance and best practice for the wider events industry, ahead of the opening up of the events industry.
