Starwood Capital Group, a private investment group, has announced that The Grand Hotel, Birmingham will open in the summer of 2020.
Following its restoration, the hotel will consist of 185 rooms and suites which will be decorated with French Renaissance and Victorian features. The property’s original features such as the stone façade, ceilings, mosaic tiled floors and grand staircase will also be restored.
The restoration also includes new penthouse suites, a rooftop garden terrace, two new bars and a destination restaurant, a gymnasium, meeting rooms, collaboration areas and event spaces such as The Grosvenor ballroom.
Cody Bradshaw, managing director and head of International Hotels at Starwood Capital Group, commented: “We’re proud to be working with Hortons’ Estate, whose founder, Isaac Horton, originally built the hotel in the 1870s, on a shared vision to create one of the most prestigious hotels in the UK.”
Bradshaw added: “The restoration of this stunning grande dame building is another milestone in what is an exciting period of transformation for this vibrant city. We look forward to providing visitors to Birmingham and locals alike with a truly one-of-a-kind destination that celebrates the splendour of this landmark building but with a 21st-century luxury experience.”
