Jim McGovern : Hilton Hotel returns to Dundee
23 October 2014
Speaking on the decision of Hampton by Hilton to return to Dundee, Jim McGovern, MP for Dundee West said:
“The decision for Hilton to return to Dundee after leaving their Earl Grey Hotel is of course welcome news not just for the economy of Dundee through providing around 60 jobs and attracting business, but for its cultural status too through providing accommodation within walking distance of Dundee’s restaurants, bars, theatres, cinemas, museums and art galleries.
“To have a world-famous and reputable hotel chain in Dundee will also do much to regenerate the area directly through renovating two empty office blocks for the hotel and paying for publicly accessible art, as well as indirectly through attracting businesses that see what Dundee has to offer, and I hope that the Council will approve these plans as result.”
