Grand makeover at Mercure Leicester, The Grand Hotel

Mercure Leicester, The Grand Hotel has undergone a major investment, transforming the city’s most iconic hotel. The extensive refurbishment includes the redesign of the hotel’s bedroom corridors as well as the renovation of the ground floor, including the restaurant, bar, reception and fitness room.

The hotel will unveil its new look at an official opening on February 19. As part of the refurbishment the Victorian hotel, which is located in the heart of the city, will present a brand new image for the historic hotel’s bedroom corridors. Creating a stylish and contemporary feel, the hotel retains its authentic features with the original sweeping Victorian staircase, and uses modern colours and fabrics to give a present-day style. Mercure Leicester, The Grand Hotel will also unveil its new reception area and fitness room.

Interior designer Helen Hooper of HH Interiors, who has previously worked with Jupiter Hotels on renovation projects across the UK, comments on the project: “Throughout the public areas of the hotel, the interior fuses contemporary fabrics and colours with traditional period features and detail. The hotel is such an iconic part of the city we wanted to embrace and treasure its history and revitalise the Mercure Leicester, The Grand Hotel, keeping its heritage and redesigning it for contemporary audiences.”

The renovation also includes the opening of the brand new Marco‘s New York Italian restaurant. Guests will be able to enjoy a varied menu, which includes traditional Italian dishes as well as a variety of meats and fish and a mouth-watering desert menu. The official restaurant opening is on Friday 20th February 2015.

James Conaghan, the hotel’s General Manager Commented: “We are delighted with the investment and are very excited for the launch on February 19. We are extremely proud of the hotel’s historical features and feel the new design helps elevate our authentic elements whilst giving the hotel a fresh and modernised look. The addition of Marco Pierre White’s Marco‘s New York Italian restaurant is a fantastic offering for locals and businesses in the city as well as guests travelling to stay with us in Leicester. It’s an exciting new chapter for the city centre hotel.”
