Coventry city centre’s new £15m Telegraph Hotel is to open its doors to guests on the 18 November.
The venue will be operated by Bespoke Hotels and features 88 individually designed air-conditioned bedrooms including loft-style penthouse suites on two levels, two panelled board rooms and a restaurant entitled, Forme and Chase.
The building which was once the former Coventry Telegraph newspaper headquarters will also feature a Winter Garden made up of 11 bedrooms overlooking a private, glazed indoor terrace only accessible from these rooms.
Mid-Century features artefacts in the hotel have been retained and signature period furniture and art pieces have been acquired to feature in the public areas.
Amy Windsor, general manager of the Telegraph Hotel, said: “The Telegraph Hotel has been five years in the planning and it is great to see it coming together ready for opening.
“We have worked closely with the developers and interior designers to produce a hotel that is genuinely different and will stand out from the crowd. In newspaper terms, this is a real exclusive.”
“Coventry is world renowned for its Mid-Century architecture and design and the Telegraph Hotel celebrates that throughout as well as nodding to its history as a newspaper office. There is simply nothing like it in the Midlands.”
She added: “We believe it will become an attraction in itself and will draw people to the city purely for the experience, as well as giving visitors an offer and level of service that is one of the best in the region.
“We are really excited about Forme and Chase restaurant and bar, and our rooftop bar which we believe will be a great attraction in a city that is really going places.”
