Hotel Brooklyn is to open its second UK outpost in Leicester in the summer of 2022, following the launch of its debut property in Manchester in February this year.
Situated beside the Welford Road Stadium, home to the Leicester Tigers rugby team, Hotel Brooklyn, Leicester will comprise 191 bedrooms, including accessible or ‘Liberty’ rooms, The Lair Restaurant and Bar and Runyon’s Atrium dinner.
The new hotel, split across five floors, will also boast conference and events facilities, both in the hotel and inside the stadium.
Designed by Squid Inc, the team behind Hotel Gotham and Hotel Brooklyn, the new hotel will provide ‘high-class corporate hospitality, versatile dining showcasing both European and American influences, and atmospheric accommodation with a number of skyline suites’.
Motionspot will drive the accessible design elements of the new property, which will position itself as Leicester’s most accessible hotel.
“We are thrilled to have secured this fantastic site in Leicester – right next door to the Welford Road Stadium”, commented Robin Sheppard, chairman of Bespoke Hotels. “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.”
