The Grand Hotel in Birmingham to reopen this summer

The Grand Hotel in Birmingham is to reopen this summer following a c.£30m refurbishment.

The historic property on Colemore Row will be operated by Starwood Capital and feature a ‘destination restaurant’, two bars, 185 rooms, rooftop garden, and revamped Grosvenor Ballroom.

The Grand Hotel was built in 1879 by architect and landowner Isaac Horton, whose family still owns the site today, and has welcomed guests including Winston Churchill and King George VI.

It was managed by several operators until it closed to the public in 2002.

The hotel was saved from demolition in 2004, after which it became a designated Grade II listed building.

A multi-million-pound revamp has seen the restoration of original character features throughout the property, including the stone façade, historic ceilings, mosaic tiled floors and grand staircase.

“We’re proud to be working with Hortons’ Estate…on a shared vision to create one of the most prestigious hotels in the UK,” says Cody Bradshaw, managing director and head of international hotels at Starwood Capital Group.

"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.”
