Located beside the expanded Welford Road Stadium – home to the famous Leicester Tigers rugby team – Hotel Brooklyn, Leicester will boast 191 bedrooms, and a restaurant and bar.
The hotel will also feature ‘Runyon’s Atrium diner’ and “extensive” conferencing and events facilities both in the hotel and inside the stadium.
Designed by Squid Inc – the team behind renowned Hotel Gotham and Hotel Brooklyn, Manchester – the new Hotel Brooklyn will offer “high-class corporate hospitality”, dining showcasing both European and American influences, and “atmospheric accommodation” with a number of skyline suites.
The hotel said its public spaces, including the reception, restaurant, bars, lifts and communal loos, will also entail an accessible design element.
“Being built by our trusted partners Marshall CDP, with whom we have worked several times before, we believe Hotel Brooklyn is a perfect fit for Leicester. It will bring a destination hotel into the heart of the city, attract a new audience of customers and, we hope, become a business of which the city will be truly proud.”
