Park Plaza Hotel
Located in the heart of Nottingham, this 4-star deluxe hotel has style, as well as the bustling city on its doorstep. The rooms are sleek and modern with en-suite bathrooms and the hotel boasts an award-winning restaurant serving Pan-Asian cuisine, drawing up the flavours from China, South-East Asia and Japan. There’s also a cocktail bar and a fitness suite (in case you over-indulge on haute cuisine). Most impressive, though, is the Light Bar – dimly lit with blue lighting so you feel as though you’re in a very expensive and futuristic bar, where drinking from a martini glass is absolutely mandatory.
This 3-star hotel is in a superb city centre location - just a couple of minutes’ walk from the Old Market Square, which is the pedestrianised square at the heart of the city. Adjoining this is the famous Lace Market, which is bustling with bars and bistros. The rooms are bright and traditional and the hotel has a restaurant that serves hearty cooked breakfasts until 11am at the weekends (which may be perfect when you’re all a little too delicate to wander out for food). However, if you’re feeling a little more adventurous, you’re close to many of Nottingham’s interesting eateries.
