Hotel Brooklyn is set to open its second design-led hotel in Leicester in the summer of 2022, following the launch of its Manchester sibling in February. Located beside the expanded Welford Road Stadium, which is home to the Leicester Tigers rugby team, Hotel Brooklyn, Leicester will offer 191 rooms and will be designed with accessibility for all in mind.
The hotel will be crafted by Squid Inc, the team behind Hotel Gotham and Hotel Brooklyn, Manchester. Inclusive design of the hotel will again be driven by Motionspot, a U.K.-based accessible design company. Public spaces, including the reception, restaurant, bars, elevators, and restrooms, will all entail accessible elements.
“This hotel has a very unique neighbor 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,” says Oliver Redfern, lead interior designer of Squid Inc.
