The Midland Hotel is currently undergoing a huge £14m refurbishment project, which is due to be unveiled in June 2020.
The revamp will see all of the hotel’s bedrooms redesigned, as well as transforming the public areas and shaking up the food and drink offering.
But the most striking change will be to the historic hotel’s main foyer which will feature a brand new, split level bar built on a raised platform opposite Adam Reid at The French, open to both hotel guests and the general public.
In addition to the public areas, the hotel’s 312 bedrooms are currently undergoing refurbishment, with approximately 120 bedrooms already complete. The new-look rooms are all about restful, neutral colours with luxurious padded armchairs, plump cushions and soft lamps.
The hotel’s food and drink offering will also be getting a brand-new look as part of the transformation, with Mr Cooper’s undergoing a full rebrand. The much-loved restaurant, overseen by head chef Rebecca Richardson, will become a British bistro with an all-day menu offering.
The refurbishment follows the full rebrand of the award-winning on-site spa, which changed its name to Rena Spa at The Midland last November.
The new spa features a variety of specialist treatments using renowned French beauty brand Caudalie, and also offers a range of Wellness by Germaine De Cappuccini treatments specially designed for those who have or are recovering from cancer.
“The £14m investment allows us to make our own mark on this iconic Manchester property, whilst maintaining the hotel’s renowned grandeur,” says says Jason Carruthers, managing director of Leonardo Hotels UK & Ireland.
“We’re very happy with how the refurbishment is progressing and look forward to welcoming guests, old and new to experience the stylish new surrounding of The Midland from June onwards.”
