The Midland Hotel in Manchester is opening its doors today, unveiling a stylish new look following an extensive refurbishment project.

The £14m refurbishment features a stunning transformation of all bedrooms and public areas. 

The most striking change, however, is to the hotel’s main foyer, which now features a brand new, split-level bar built on a raised platform in the heart of the hotel’s lobby, providing a spectacular space for both guests and non-guests to enjoy.

The Midland’s food and beverage offering has also received a brand-new look as part of the transformation and the hotel is now home to two new venues. New restaurant concept, Mount Street, is a modern British style brasserie, which combines Northern hospitality with an all-day menu offering. Guests can also visit The Midland’s on-site restaurant, The Midland Champagne Lounge, where they will find an all-day menu serving classic dishes with a modern twist.

In addition to the public areas, the hotel’s 312 bedrooms have undergone impressive refurbishments. Featuring a restful, neutral colour palette adorned with luxurious soft padded armchairs, plump cushions and glowing lamps; the new rooms offer guests ultimate comfort and style.

Jason Carruthers, Managing Director of Leonardo Hotels UK & Ireland, comments: “We are thrilled to have completed The Midland’s extraordinary transformation and are all the more excited to reveal it to guests after a long lockdown period. The hotel has hosted gatherings and celebrations since 1903 and we are so pleased to welcome guests back once more to enjoy a new chapter in the life of this iconic building. 

The acquisition of The Midland hotel back in November 2018 marked the start of an extremely exciting chapter for Leonardo Hotels in the UK. The Midland’s £14m investment has allowed us to make our own mark on this famous Manchester property, whilst maintaining the hotel’s historical status.”

The refurbishment follows the full rebrand of the award-winning on-site spa, which transitioned, into Rena Spa at The Midland in November 2019. The new spa offers a wonderful selection of specialist treatments, all using renowned French beauty brand, Caudalie, and Rena Spa at The Midland is particularly proud to offer a range of Wellness by Germaine De Cappuccini treatments specially designed for those who have or are recovering from cancer.
