Whatever your preference for an overnight stay, Nottingham has some superior accommodation on offer. Book a room for a night or three, bring your friends and family and find the heart and heritage of NG1.

Every major international city has a Hilton Hotel. The unquestionable hospitality of Nottingham’s Hilton lies behind a majestic six-floor Victorian façade, contributing to the city’s reputation as ‘Queen of the Midlands’.

Close to the Theatre Royal, this Queen of the city proves the perfect place for those with an eye on an evening of culture. And with Nottingham Trent University only a few streets away, its location is also ideal for families seeking somewhere for graduation dinner and celebratory drinks – no need to call an Uber.

Rest easy in one of the unfussy, stylish rooms before meandering down to the open-plan diner-style restaurant bar for a ‘British dish with a twist’. The unique street terrace is a prime spot for a relaxing drink while you people-watch after a wander around the nearby shops. Look out for summer offers at the LivingWell Health Club, enjoy a personalised service and make this a complete wellbeing break.

Searching for a totally different city experience or travelling with a group? Head westside to Roomzzz on Talbot Street. Just a few minutes walk from widely acclaimed entertainment venues Rock City and Motorpoint Arena, this spacious aparthotel cuts a striking silhouette in the skyline.

With a welcoming entrance cool enough to hang out, you will definitely feel like you ‘have arrived’. Their fully equipped kitchenettes and luxury bathrooms make this convenient for fast food and a freshen-up if you have little time between arriving and your event. They are also equipped with a compact workspace, if it really can’t wait.

The wide windowed frontage mirrors the summer sunset as night falls. Be inspired by the sleek lines and bold accent colours, as you dress accordingly then lounge with your entourage, for a pre-party drink on the long leather sofa, the bright city lights behind you. Splash out onto the Penthouse Suite to totally embrace the rock star experience.

If you prefer a plaza, then Nottingham city proudly presents two of these stellar hotels. Crowne Plaza also near the centre, with an inviting lobby lounge for meeting and greeting. The stark glass exterior opens up to reveal warm touches that whisper luxury at every turn.

Cool classic tones combined with natural wood set the mood for a good night’s rest and breakfast in the Lace Maker restaurant will fuel you up for a morning exploring the caves. Treat yourself to the à la carte menu in the main restaurant bar, and for the ultimate indulgence, lounge by the heated onsite pool and take advantage of the selection of spa treatments available.

Park Plaza is also situated in the centre, on Maid Marian Way, a smart glass-fronted building with a large capacity, just a short walk from the train station. The clean modern lines continue throughout, with fresh and light rooms decorated in muted shades that contrast with the dramatic setting of the dining room.

In the Chino Latino Bar, you will discover Japanese-inspired décor, and black decorative wooden panelling accented with red and hot pink backlighting. This sultry setting is superb for dining on sushi and sipping an Asahi after dark. Treat yourself to a bit of the exotic. If you are in the city for more than one night, discover fine dining at one of Vicky McLure’s favourite restaurants MemSaab directly opposite the hotel.

For a true taste of authentic Nottingham history, tucked away around the corner on Rutland Street, is St. James Hotel. One of our Grade II listed buildings is now a beautifully restored boutique hotel, the luxury of which Maid Marian could have only dreamed of.

The sumptuous rooms rich in décor take you back to the time between Nottingham Castle being built by the Normans and the Industrial Revolution. When the lace industry flourished and the Old Market Square was the centre point between the Norman and Anglo-Saxon halves of the city - once divided by a wall.

Their suite of prestigious rooms offers the ultimate in indulgence, and they do have options to suit all budgets.Get acquainted with their swanky dining lounge bedecked in regal purple. It’s a cosy space ideal for afternoon tea, a glass of prosecco with pals or Dom Perignon with that special someone. Comfortable sofas and shelves stacked with books might just make it impossible to leave.

Another one of Nottingham’s established unique experience hotels is Hart’s Hotel, situated in a quieter part of the city. Set in the vale of Nottingham Castle, it’s a top location for exploring Nottingham’s heritage.

Hart’s high vantage point affords guests spectacular city views across the city. Choose a room overlooking the cool courtyard or a garden room with its own terrace out to the secluded garden, a space to relax from sunrise to sunset. Parents can enjoy the extra room in the family suite to chill, with one eye on the kids.

A contemporary build, this hotel was constructed with sustainability in mind and combines luxury with eco-consciousness beautifully. Crisp cotton sheets and modernist prints add a light freshness to the rooms that complement the building’s well-ventilated and clever design. These make Hart’s a comfortable stay all year round.

If you’re driving into the city, don’t worry as parking is available at all of the hotels mentioned. However, as a clean green transport city, there are so many convenient ways to travel and get around in Nottingham.

Wherever you choose, delight in the joy of waking up somewhere new. Step outside, fall in with the daydreamers, weekend pleasure seekers and treat yourself to a slice of Nottingham city life.
