The Grand Hotel & Spa in York has unveiled the first look at the 100 new bedrooms it will be opening in early 2018.
The property, which launched in May 2010 following the £25m transformation of the former North Eastern railway headquarters, will almost double the number of its bedrooms from 107 to 207 in the next phase of development at the five-star hotel.
The new rooms are being designed by Twenty2 Degrees and will include marble-finished bathrooms, Eyptian cotton linen and be inspired by the building’s history.
The introduction of the new bedrooms will follow the unveiling of the hotel’s two restaurants, The Rise, a Yorkshire-style small plates concept which launched this summer and the refurbishment and relocation of The Grand’s 3 AA Rosette fine dining restaurant, Hudson’s by Craig Atchinson.
Philip Bolson, general manager of The Grand Hotel & Spa, York said: “We have been working on this development for the best part of two years, and we’re extremely excited to unveil the first rooms in our new accommodation development – it will increase our total bedrooms from 107 to 207.”
Next year, as well as the new bedrooms, the hotel’s development and expansion will include the addition of two new areas: an Executive Lounge with complimentary dining, as well as an Arrival Lounge to enhance the guest arrival process.
