Mercure Sheffield looks local for new design inspiration


Mercure Sheffield St Paul’s Hotel and Spa has reopened following an extensive multi-million pound refurbishment.

The new look has been designed to reflect the city’s cultural landscape with locally-inspired artwork and design, something which has become an integral part of boutique hotels around the country.

Mercure, a ‘locally inspired’ brand has re-designed the bedrooms and public spaces to reflect the green city, taking inspiration from the Winter Garden, Peace Gardens and nearby Peak District National Park.

The refurbishment also pays tribute to the city’s ‘steel’ heritage with design-led metal features and accents throughout the hotel’s new interior.

The reception area is now home to a back-lit leaf vein motif, complemented by new contemporary furniture. The new signature table displays a wooden leaf skeleton frame, glass top and walnut finish.

The newly-designed lounge and bar will be home to floral metalwork details, petrified moss and a steel sculpture.

The bar area has also been designed to encourage guests to use the space throughout the day wo work, socialise or watch sports.

The Mercure Sheffield St Paul’s Hotel and Spa offers guests a choice between 122 classic rooms, 32 privilege rooms, 7 junior suites and 2 executive suites, with each bedroom redesigned to incorporate a bright new colour scheme in line with the natural garden theme.

Jonathan Sheard, SVP operations luxury, upscale & midscale, Accor UK & Ireland said, “We are proud to welcome guests to this beautifully refurbished hotel and look forward to showcasing the strong local connections that make the Mercure hotels truly unique.”

Luisa Esposito, general manager of the Mercure Sheffield St Paul’s Hotel and Spa said, “We are thrilled to welcome new and returning guests to the recently refurbished Mercure Sheffield St Paul’s Hotel and Spa. Having taken inspiration from Sheffield’s rich local landscape and cultural heritage we are confident that the hotel will continue to be the most sought-after retreat in the city.”
