The city’s oldest hotel features 13 different bedroom types and has its own royal wing, a seven-bedroomed suite complete with its own private dining for intimate events, all of which have had their decor “brought up to date”.
Each room also has a variety of “premium additions” outfitted with plush bedding, large desks and chairs, four poster beds and room for entertaining. The Hotel also now features a Miller & Carter Steakhouse which opened in December 2018.
The Marriott Group said it kept the hotel’s “iconic” Palm Court in keeping with its original style – Grade II-listed architecture and a stain glass roof.
Niten Sobti, general manager at the Bristol Marriott Royal, said: “We are extremely proud to showcase our preciously restored hotel – the Grande Dame of the city. We hope our guests have a unique experience as they walk through the doors by enjoying its rich history but with the premium modern hotel touch.
“It is only right to give a hotel of this stature the kind of restoration it deserves in order to elevate its position as a premium hotel in the city. As the Bristol hotel scene continues to grow and flourish, we know our hotel will continue to be a premium choice for overnight stays and weekend breaks, giving our guests the Royal Treatment on every visit.”
