Hotel Brooklyn, a Bespoke Hotels brand, is set to open its second hotel in Leicester in summer 2022, following the launch of its Manchester sibling in February.
Running the new hotel beside the expanded Welford Road Stadium – home of the Leicester Tigers rugby team – Hotel Brooklyn, Leicester will feature 191 bedrooms and has been designed by Squid Inc.
It will also host the Lair Restaurant and Bar, Runyon’s Atrium diner and conferencing facilities.
Oliver Redfern, Lead Interior Designer of Squid Inc says: “This hotel has a very unique neighbour in the form of ‘Leicester Tigers’ rugby club and will most definitely add a little extra inspiration into the design.
“Architectural features, such as the striking central atrium stretching over five floors, will allow us to take the Brooklyn ethos – a palpable anti-slick, anti-corporate sensibility – to a whole new level. This hotel will be irresistibly familiar: a place where outsiders become insiders, and a destination of true hospitality.”
Robin Sheppard, Chairman of Bespoke Hotels, said: “We are thrilled to have secured this fantastic site in Leicester – right next door to the Welford Road Stadium.
“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.”
