The £14m refurbishment project will see all of the hotel’s bedrooms redesigned, as well as transformed public areas.
The work will also see the hotel’s main foyer feature a brand new, split level bar built on a raised platform opposite Adam Reid at The French.
The Midland’s food and beverage offering will also receive a brand-new look as part of the transformation, with current on-site restaurant, Mr Cooper’s, undergoing a full rebrand, turning into a British bistro with an all-day menu offering.
In addition to the public areas, the hotel’s 312 bedrooms are currently undergoing refurbishment, with approximately 120 bedrooms already complete. Leonardo said the rooms will feature a “restful, neutral colour palette” with soft padded armchairs and glowing lamps.
Jason Carruthers, MD of Leonardo Hotels UK and Ireland, said: “The acquisition of The Midland hotel back in November 2018 marked the start of an extremely exciting chapter for Leonardo Hotels in the UK. The £14m investment allows us to make our own mark on this iconic Manchester property, whilst maintaining the hotel’s renowned grandeur.
“We’re very happy with how the refurbishment is progressing and look forward to welcoming guests, old and new to experience the stylish new surrounding of The Midland from June onwards.”
The refurbishment follows the full rebrand of the on-site spa which transitioned into Rena Spa at The Midland in November last year.
The new spa offers a selection of specialist treatments including a range of Wellness by Germaine De Cappuccini treatments specially designed for those who have or are recovering from cancer.
