Two-night for a concert
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Wheelchair, Powerchair
We stayed for two nights at DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Sheffield Park in a king deluxe accessible room. The room was lovely with a huge bathroom which worked great for our needs. We loved how stylish our room was as well as accessible. The location was also great as it wasn't too far from FlyDSA Arena Sheffield and the city centre. It was an enjoyable two-night stay and we will definitely return when we next visit Sheffield.
Transport & Parking
We arrived by car and parked in one of the disabled parking bays in the hotel’s car park. Parking was complimentary. Disabled bays were located near the hotel’s reception entrance.
The entrance was step-free with automatic doors. The reception desk has a lowered section for wheelchair users. From the reception area to the rooms was accessed via a carpeted ramp and through a heavy door. The hotel room was also very spacious and there was plenty of space under the bed for a portable hoist. Plug sockets and USB slots were beside the bed for charging wheelchairs, laptops, mobile phones or medical equipment. I was also able to roll underneath the desk without any problems.
Our hotel bathroom was huge and provided lots of space for my wheelchair. I didn't have any problems turning and could easily do full turns without knocking into anything. The toilet was positioned in the corner with space for left-hand transfers. There was grab bars on each side of the toilet as well as the wash basin beside the toilet. The roll-in shower was very good with a good sizes shower seat, grab bars and shower controls within reaching distance. The main sink was large with lots of counter surface space. I was able to roll underneath the sink without banging my knees. The mixer tap was positioned at the side of the sink for easier reach rather than the back.
Friendly and helpful staff.
