York is a very popular tourist destination. And if the city centre will be declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site (the bid was submitted in 2010), it will be visited by even a larger number of travellers. Luckily, there are plenty of fine hotels to meet just about any traveller’s needs although the finest ones are not particularly budget-friendly. But then again, luxury never is. If money isn’t an issue or/and if you want to enjoy pure luxury while exploring the city of York, Tomahawk recommends you to make reservations at one of the following hotels:
The Grand Hotel & Spa. This is the only hotel in York that is classed as a five star hotel. It offers pure luxury at virtually every step which makes it ideal for those who would like to explore and experience the city of York with style. Besides all the standard amenities and facilities you can expect in most five star hotels, the Grand’s guests can also enjoy fine dining at the hotel’s award winning Hudson’s restaurant. Also, the Grand’s guests enjoy easy access to all the city attractions as the hotel is located just a short walk from the old town.
Best Western Plus Dean Court Hotel. This lovely four star hotel which is intended for travellers who prefer contemporary style and modern feel is nearby all the top attractions as well. Another great thing about the Best Western Plus Dean Court Hotel is that it has a highly secure car park which is very nearby the hotel.
The Mount Royale Hotel. This hotel sits on the The Mount, just a short walk from the city centre and its main attractions. It is surrounded by a picturesque gardens which gives it almost country-like character. Since the 1960s when it was started by Richard Oxtoby and his wife Christine, The Mount Royale Hotel has been owned and run by the Oxtoby family.
York is a beautiful historic city located at the junction of the rivers Foss and Ouse. Founded in 71 AD by the Romans, the city played host to a number of historical events, some which profoundly influenced not only local history but the history of the UK as a whole. York’s economy is dominated by the service industry with tourism accounting for a large portion.
