Totalling over 1,300 bedrooms, the new hotels include the Grange Tower Bridge Hotel, the Grange St Paul’s Hotel, the Grange City Hotel and the Grange Holborn Hotel, which, following a significant investment programme, will undergo major refurbishments as the group continues to pursue a strategy to drive performance and growth.
The new hotels will be operated by Jurys Inn and Leonardo Hotels UK and Ireland, with Tower Bridge, St Paul’s and City Hotels operating under Leonardo Royals, and Holborn, following extensive refurbishment, will become the group’s first NYX Hotel by Leonardo Hotels in the UK.
Acquired by Queensgate Investments, the hotels boast meeting and events spaces that can facilitate over 4,500 people, 14 bars and restaurants, and extensive leisure facilities – including swimming pools, gyms, beauty spas and holistic therapy rooms.
The addition of these hotels brings the total number within the Jurys Inn and Leonardo Hotels UK and Ireland Group to 53, following a year of “significant expansion”. In total, it now has over 11,000 bedrooms across the group.
Jason Carruthers, managing director of Jurys Inn and Leonardo Hotels UK and Ireland, said: “We are delighted to add these prominent hotels to our portfolio, which are in excellent locations within the very heart of London, as we continue to increase our offering in the UK following a year of significant growth.
“As we start 2019, we believe our portfolio, our strategy and the proven capabilities of our people puts Jurys Inn and Leonardo Hotels UK and Ireland in a unique position to leverage and capitalise on the emerging opportunities in the UK hotel sector and to help create exceptional customer experiences.”
