During my own stay at the hotel, I set out to spot all the hidden Staffordshire links throughout the building, from using local ales and spirits in the bar, to tiles manufactured in Tunstall and plates from pottery firms in Middleport. I love that Hilton have chosen to celebrate our industrious heritage and supported local manufacturers with this stunning hotel, making it feel all the more special for visitors, local or from out of town. So, here are six proper Stokie things I spotted at the Hilton Garden Inn, Stoke-on-Trent, that make it feel well and truly a part of the city.
