Second Hotel Brooklyn to open in Leicester in 2022

Bespoke Hotels is set to open a second Hotel Brooklyn in Leicester in summer 2022, having opened the first in Manchester in February.

Located beside the Welford Road Stadium, home of the Leicester Tigers, Hotel Brooklyn, Leicester, will have 191 bedrooms. Like its sister property, it will focus on well-designed accessibility.

It will also feature the Lair restaurant and bar, Runyon's diner in the hotel atrium, conferencing and events facilities both inside the hotel and the stadium, and direct access into the stadium. Construction has already begun onsite.

Robin Sheppard, chairman and co-founder 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."

The hotel has been designed by Squid Inc, the team behind sister properties Hotel Gotham and Hotel Brooklyn, Manchester, with accessibility input from Motionspot.

Oliver Redfern, lead interior designer of Squid Inc, said: "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."
