Formerly called the Grand Harbour Hotel, the new operators said they will retain the “character and ambience” of the hotel while growing and developing the product and customer service.
Located in the city centre on West Quay Road, the property was originally opened in 1994 by hospitality business De Vere, and features 173-rooms and suites as well as the city’s only Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill.
The hotel also has 13 meeting and event spaces, including the Mayflower function room which holds up to 500 people, making it the biggest hotel event space in the city.
Jason Carruthers, managing director of Jurys Inn & Leonardo Hotels UK and Ireland said: “We are thrilled to be expanding our UK portfolio with this renowned hotel in Southampton.
“Whether you are planning a weekend city break, an overnight stay before you head off on a cruise or a relaxing afternoon at the spa, we are excited to welcome locals and guests old and new to experience our newest hotel.”
