Holiday Inn Leicester has been significantly transformed with a contemporary new look thanks to a £500,000 investment.The hotel – the first ever Holiday Inn to open in the UK has been completely repainted and remodelled, ahead of its 40th anniversary next year.
General Manager at the hotel, Michael Lyons, said: “Following our refresh the hotel now boasts a glistening exterior and the island we’re located on has been beautifully landscaped to reflect the hotel’s modern and welcoming positioning.”
“I hope our investment will benefit the local community and encourage locals to come and visit us. We have a fantastic Vermont restaurant and Spirit Health Club which includes an impressive swimming pool.”
Earlier this year the hotel underwent an extensive rebrand with a fresh new look. Most visible is the new contemporary logo which can be seen outside the hotel. Inside stylish new design touches, crisp white linen and a menu where guests can choose from a selection of soft and firm bedroom pillows has been added.
Every little touch has been designed to ensure guests feel welcome and enjoy their stay. Other changes include new music and even a signature scent in the lobby.
The whole team at the hotel has also been through a bespoke training programme called Stay Real, ensuring they are fully in tune with guests’ needs.
The rebrand also included new staff uniforms and enhancements to the main function room.
