    Hilton Newcastle Gateshead has launched an exclusive selection of newly refurbished bedrooms following an extensive £500k revamp, which demonstrates the hotel’s commitment to the region’s £4 billion tourism economy. According to recent figures from One North East, spend on accommodation has increased by seven percent over the past year, while the number of overnight visitors to the region has increased by nine percent since 2003. Furthermore, the number of nights actually spent in the North East increased by 15 percent.

    In response to this rising demand, Hilton Newcastle Gateshead has created a more contemporary and comfortable environment for its guests; which range from families, celebrities, business travellers, culture vultures and those in search of Newcastle’s famous nightlife.

    The refurbishment took place over eight months, with Hilton Newcastle Gateshead discreetly closing off sections of the hotel to ensure guests would not face any disruption. The 71 new look bedrooms were transformed by creating a luxurious feel with soothing vinyl wallpaper and cooling colours throughout the rooms. A further touch of style was added with amethyst feature walls.

    The décor was complemented with a natural colour scheme, a full carpet refit, new curtains and lavish textiles. Each of the revamped rooms also comes complete with a new mattress and comfortable desk chair.

    Alongside the refurbishment, all bedrooms in the hotel now feature 37 inch flat LCD screen televisions, with 42 inch flat screens in all of the remaining hotel’s Executive bedrooms. Each bedroom in the hotel now offers over 30 television channels as well as a high selection of pay per view movies and music channels, catering to the needs of the cross-section of guests.

    Further to the bedrooms, the hotel’s Boardroom has been fully refurbished with new equipment, including a sizeable table, furniture and fittings. The Boardroom is also host to artwork by renowned local artist John Coatsworth, best known for his distinctive ‘wobbly’ view paintings of North East landmarks.

    Further renovation of the remaining rooms at Hilton Newcastle Gateshead is planned over 2011-2012.

    Based on the banks of the River Tyne and overlooking the Tyne Bridge, the stylish Hilton Newcastle Gat eshead is one of the region’s flagship hotels and as such, en-suite bedrooms, all elegantly furnished and many of which with enviable views over the River Tyne, Hilton Newcastle Gateshead is ideally situated for all guests.

    On top of this, the hotel offers diners the opportunity to sample its modern and locally sourced cuisine in its Windows on the Tyne Restaurant as well as a state-of-the-art Health Club. The hotel also offers a range of banqueting rooms to suit any occasion.
