Jupiter Hotels has completed the renovation of signature event spaces at three of its hotels in Brighton, Maidstone and Manchester.
The Mercure Brighton Seafront Hotel has unveiled the £60,000 refurbishment of its Ballroom event space ahead of the property’s 150-year anniversary in 2014. The new room, which will be able to host 180 seated guests, embraces original Victorian features with contemporary additions to bring a glamorous aesthetic to the space.
The new Heart of Kent Suite at the Mercure Maidstone Great Danes Hotel has become the largest hotel event space in the county, able to host 650-seated guests. Striking local artwork inspired by the Garden of England’s landscape has been added to the room, which also benefits from an abundance of natural light and a high ceiling.
In October, renovation work on the Mercure Manchester Piccadilly Hotel’s International Suite was completed, following a £500,000 investment. The space, which is able to accommodate 800 guests theatre-style and 650 guests for a banquet, is now one of the North-west’s largest event facilities.
Jupiter Hotels CEO, Shane Harris, says: “Across our 26 hotels, we’re committed to providing truly exceptional meeting and conference spaces which leave a lasting impression with those who attend events at our properties. We ensure that cutting-edge technology and eye-catching interior design are incorporated into renovation projects that we complete – which our new event spaces in Brighton, Manchester and Maidstone are testament to.”
East Sussex-based interior designer, Helen Hooper from HH Interiors – who worked on all three projects – adds: “The new meeting and event spaces are different in their own right, but there’s continuity in the design, which is an important part of maintaining Jupiter Hotels’ identity. The spaces are bright and glamorous – but versatile also, ideal for all kinds of gatherings from weddings to award ceremonies.”
