Mercure Sheffield St Paul’s Hotel and Spa re-opens following multi-million pound investmentSheffield’s leading 4-star hotel, the Mercure Sheffield St Paul’s Hotel and Spa, has undergone an extensive refurbishment to reflect the city’s unique cultural landscape with locally inspired artwork and design.
Located in a prime central position, next to the Peace Gardens, close to the Lyceum and Crucible theatres as well as Sheffield Hallam University, the contemporary Mercure St Paul’s Hotel and Spa features unrivalled views overlooking the Winter Garden with direct access for public events.
Mercure, a “locally inspired” brand has re-designed the bedrooms and public spaces to reflect the predominantly green city, taking inspiration from the Winter Garden, Peace Gardens and nearby Peak District National Park. With over 250 parks, woodlands and gardens in the area hosting an estimated two million trees, Sheffield boats the highest ratio of trees to people of any European city offering a refreshing break for visitors. The meticulous refurbishment also pays tribute to the city’s iconic ‘steel’ heritage with innovative design-led metal features and accents throughout the hotel’s new interior.
On arrival, guests will be greeted by Mercure’s feature wall, a signature statement in Mercure’s flagship hotels, as well as stunning glass panels featuring a back-lit leaf vein motif at reception and throughout the public areas. The warm and inviting lighting makes guests feel instantly at home with the addition of Chelsom’s Steel Teardrop light whilst they relax amongst the contemporary and stylish furniture. Keeping in line with the local nature theme, the new signature table will take center stage in reception displaying a wooden leaf skeleton frame, glass top and a rich walnut finish.
The newly designed lounge and bar area will continue to bring the outside indoors with floral metalwork details, petrified moss and a stunning corteen steel sculpture. The new upholstery features earthy tones and textures inspired by local plants found in the Winter Gardens, creating a peaceful and harmonious environment. The thoughtful layout of the bar has created zones according to guests’ activity, providing space for those wishing to work, socialize or watch sports.
The refurbishment has also been extended to the popular Champagne Bar, which is widely regarded as one of Sheffield’s most chic destinations for cocktails and pre-dinner drinks, as well as the hotels’ The Yard restaurant. Guests can enjoy local signature dishes such as Henderson’s Relish Pie and posh pork sandwiches as well as fresh and locally sourced fish and seafood delicacies.
The Mercure Sheffield St Paul’s Hotel and Spa offers a range of accommodation including 122 Classic rooms, 32 Privilege rooms, 7 Junior suites and 2 Executive suites, all of which have been fitted with top of the range beds to provide the ultimate sleep and relaxation experience. Every bedroom has been re-designed to incorporate a bright and zesty colour scheme, in line with the natural garden theme, including a stylish headboard displaying local artwork.
The hotel caters for both business and leisure guests with USB port chargers and fridges in all bedrooms offering flexibility and comfort to suit every need. The hotel’s leisure facilities include an 18m swimming pool, thermal suite and fully equipped gym. Guests can also enjoy a range of rejuvenating treatments in the spa including manicures, massages, spray tans, saunas and steam rooms.
