We chose to stay at the Double Tree Hilton as we were in Lincoln for a night, and it's a dog friendly Hilton property.
We were impressed with the look of the hotel, a large, modern property right on the waterfront. I believe this is the only purpose built Double Tree property in the UK.
The lobby is light and elegant with a new mix of the old and very new. We were greeted by a friendly receptionist, who checked us in early without any issue. We were told that a Hilton Honours Gold members we'd been upgraded to a Marina view suite.
We were staying with our dog and the manager came out from behind the desk to greet our dog and chat to us, very personal and memorable service.
The suite we were given was a good sized three room suite with a large marina view balcony. The rooms were a living room, bedroom and a very nice bathroom. The rooms were clean, scuff and stain free and generally to a high standard.
Every member of staff we encountered through out stay was friendly and always made an effort to pay attention to our dog (which he loved).
I understand the restaurant/bar which is on the top floor is 'the place' the go out in Lincoln and the lobby was always busy with people coming and going.
The only issue we encountered was the large queues for breakfast, it was 9am on a Sunday morning so a wait is perhaps expected; but the breakfast room is very small. But this was a small issue and the breakfast itself was delicious and i'd say above par for a Double Tree.
My focus is always service, and this place really delivered! The staff completely made out stay and I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone, and will be staying again next time we're in the city.
