The striking Royal York Hotel is among this famous city’s most iconic hotels and even buildings, of which there are many, of course. Formerly known as the Royal Station Hotel, the four-star gem of a building takes up a position adjacent to York’s train station and has some gardens with a pond outside for good measure. One of York’s most central hotels, the Royal York Hotel and Events Centre lends itself in particular to high class conferences and events thanks to its well established facilities and its well versed staff. There is something for everyone in this York city centre hotel, with plenty of bedrooms, places to eat, conference facilities and a bag of leisure activities to experience and enjoy.
Set in the heart of the city, the Royal York Hotel is a traditional setting that fits in well with this largely historic location. The hotel has to fit in with the likes of the beautiful York Minster, the famous city walls, the historic Shambles shopping street and the National Railway Museum: high end company indeed. Visitors to the area may also wish to take up on the opportunity to visit Betty’s Tea Rooms or hear the chilling story of York’s Dungeons. Due to the city’s popularity plenty of events and activities take place throughout the year, occasions that would coincide well with a visit to the Royal York Hotel.
There are 167 bedrooms under the roof of the Royal York, with some modern designs mixed in with more traditional offerings. Then, for meal times, there is the Tempus Bar and Restaurant, a place for three-course meals or light snacks, and most definitely beverages of all kinds. The aforementioned conference facilities are 15 in number and they can be used for a whole host of event types including weddings, while finally there are also some leisure facilities for your relaxation, with a sauna, swimming pool, steam room and gym onsite for this very purpose.
