I have dealt with the first direct arena from the opening day as both Director of Sales for Radisson BLU Leeds and more recently Double Tree by Hilton Leeds, I have always received excellent service from signing up to the membership, booking, and the delivery.  The very best part of entertaining the clients in the suites are the reactions, the suites are always impressive and a great impact, I would certainly recommend to businesses
