Second Hilton this weekend – better service

Crossed the Pennines by train to check into the Hilton in Sheffield. A bit out of the way and in a brand new part of town compared to when I was at university here. Not happy that our room wasn’t ready but they gave us a voucher for the bar and after a drink we checked into our comfortable rooms. The extra pillows we had ordered were there as well as a nice welcome gift of chocolate and cream:

Although the city centre has changed considerably the university is not that much different, apart from the students’ union which has been transformed. Pics here. The Supertram certainly wasn’t even thought of in my day but it took us smoothly to Meadowhall a mini-city of entertainment, shopping and restaurants. Back in the hotel we settled down for a quiet evening in the hotel with some wine.
