Sheffield’s newest hotel checks into former police HQ

Sheffield’s newest hotel opened this week - in the old West Bar police station.

The Hampton by Hilton is a £9m 18 month conversion of the seven-storey building, which was constructed in 1965 and closed as a police headquarters in 2011.

With 142 bedrooms, it joins Hilton Worldwide’s brand of more than 1,900 mid-priced hotels.

Phil Cordell, global head for focused service and Hampton brand management, said the Sheffield development provided “high quality facilities to business and leisure travellers. As ever, we pride ourselves on the 100% Hampton Guarantee, which means that if guests aren’t satisfied, we don’t expect them to pay.”

Sheffield already has a Hilton and a DoubleTree by Hilton

The new hotel is managed by Interstate Hotels & Resorts. Hampton by Hilton general manager Peter Hendry said: “Sheffield is a wonderful city which I’m now proud to call my home.”

An adjacent Marco Pierre White New York Italian-style diner opens on March 24.
