Due for completion at the end of September the work has seen the renovation of all bedrooms and public areas including the hotel’s main foyer, which now features a brand new, split-level bar built on a raised platform in the heart of the hotel’s lobby.
In addition to the public areas, the hotel’s 312 bedrooms have also been revamped to feature a “restful, neutral colour palette” and new padded armchairs and lamps and decorations.
The refurbishment follows the full rebrand of on-site spa, which transitioned, into Rena Spa at The Midland in November 2019.
Jason Carruthers, MD of Leonardo Hotels UK and Ireland, said: “We are thrilled to have completed The Midland’s extraordinary transformation and look forward to unveiling it to the public, allowing guests to once again experience this iconic building.
“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 Midland’s £14m investment has allowed us to make our own mark on this famous Manchester property, whilst maintaining the hotel’s historical status.”
He added: “We can’t wait to see the finished product and look forward to welcoming guests, old and new to experience the stylish new surroundings of The Midland.”
