In a nod to its Brooklyn roots, the brand new and highly-anticipated Hotel Brooklyn, Leicester has officially opened its doors today, 4th July 2022.

Adjacent to The Mattioli Woods Stadium, the home of the current Premiership Champions, the 191-room hotel isinspired by the New York Borough, with its industrial aesthetic, impressive atrium and exposed brickwork. The property has already been identified as the flatiron thanks to its positioning facing Leicester city centre in an extraordinary location.

Constructed during lockdown with an ambition to deliver outstanding guest experiences for all, including its most obvious audience matchday guests whether they are in Leicester for rugby, cricket or football. There are 191 luxury bedrooms including a number of skyline suites, rooms with hot-tub terraces, executive suites with free-standing baths and dog-friendly rooms, as well as spaces for sophisticated and fun corporate hospitality. 

The Brooklyn experience will start from arrival as guests will enter the hotel via the lower ground 'Subway' entrance before making their way to the ground level and into the magnificent atrium where they will find themselves transported to a street in Brooklyn. With cheek by jowl accommodation cascading above, the interior is complemented by the natural light streaming in from the five storey glass windows that line the atrium, overlooking the stadium.

Regional General Manager for the Brooklyn Brand Paul Bayliss MBE said, “It’s a fantastic property; we’ve trialled it already giving it a strong test in all areas on almost 100% occupancy, and it has delivered superbly. When we opened Hotel Brooklyn, Manchester we were not quite sure how our guests and clients would take us as a new design of hotel properties with a genuine ambition to be cool, trendy, functional but accessible to all. With plenty to say for itself but always with guest experience at the core of everything we do. Two and a half years later we know through the feedback we’ve received we hit many of the high notes for guests. As someone who opened that hotel, we’ve learnt and developed our concepts even more and have to say this one is even better.''
