By Hull Daily Mail | Posted: 6 Dec 2017

Hull’s new £25m Hilton hotel is set to open for some special Christmas events and the venue also plans to host a lavish New Year’s Eve party.

Finishing touches are currently being made to the new DoubleTree by Hilton Hull, in Ferensway, which is expected to partially open this week.

The venue, which will be Hull’s first four-star hotel, will be open for special Christmas Party Nights, with live entertainment, including seasonal three-course dinner events.

It will also host a New Year’s Eve black-tie ball later this month.

Although, the hotel's guest rooms are not expected to be available to book until 2018.

The festive events will be held in the hotel’s stunning ballroom space which has its own entrance and bar.

On the menu for the festive party nights is everything from brandy-infused pate to traditional turkey with duck fat roasted potatoes and rich plum pudding to indulgent strawberry and vanilla cheesecake.

There will also be live entertainment with prices starting at £34 per person.
