Over the past 2 months we have been shining a spotlight on some of our hotel partners around Leeds that we work closely with, whether it be for accommodation or to host dinners alongside our conference activity. We have a really great relationship with our hotel partners and if we are unable to host you, we will always direct you to one of our partners. It is so important to us to create the best possible experience for our delegates here in Leeds and we are so lucky to have the partnerships we do across the City.
First, we began with the Queens Hotel Leeds which has recently undergone a large scale refurbishment from top to bottom and we thought it looked amazing. Located overlooking City Square, it is right by the train station and the Victoria Shopping Quarter making it a great location in the city centre. It hosts a variety of meeting rooms from smaller boardrooms to large Gala dinners, they have a space to cater for all needs.
Next we travelled over to the IBIS Styles Hotel which offers a great location nearby the First Direct Arena and city centre. The IBIS Styles always looks bright and lively and are incredibly accommodating of our large conference bookings during term time when we don’t have capacity at Storm Jameson Court. The hotel also has themes of Yorkshire throughout offering a nod to the industrial past of the City of Leeds.
The Hilton Double Tree was next under the spotlight of Hotel Hour and we love its location, situated right on Granary Wharf it overlooks the River Aire running through the heart of Leeds. It also plays host to the amazing rooftop bar, Sky Lounge, which provides you with great drinks and wonderful views of the city. The Double Tree has a variety of amenities as well as dynamic meeting space to help accommodate for a variety of event sizes.
We then jumped over to The Light shopping centre, home of the Radisson Blu Leeds. It is situated a few minutes from the University campus and also a short walk to the city centre. It is a great hotel for those conferencing with us and very accommodating to large group bookings during term time. It gives you a short walk to the University and the city centre, giving you the full experience of conferencing here with us!
The Leeds Marriott Hotel was the next of our partners to feature on #HotelHour and the Leeds Marriott Hotel has recently undergone an extensive refurbishment, making it one of the most exciting places to stay in the city. Marriott Leeds has impressed guests with a complete transformation of its bedrooms and Meetings and Events space, and a brand-new Executive Lounge. In the heart of the city, nestled on a quiet courtyard, the four-star hotel offers contemporary comfort in bright, stylish surroundings
The next hotel we visited was the Crowne Plaza Leeds. The Crowne Plaza has fantastic service and a variety of dynamic meeting space to cater for anything from small meetings and large gala dinners. It is also located in the city centre offering great access to the train station and shopping centres alike. Visiting the Crowne Plaza is always great and we think it’s a wonderful location for those conferencing with us at the University of Leeds!
The Hilton Leeds City was the final hotel we visited and with a dynamic array of meeting space and bedroom options it is a great partner of ours! With 14 meeting rooms able to host 350 delegates alongside 208 bedrooms it is a dynamic and versatile partner of ours! They also offer the fantastic Livingwell Health Club to all guests which has a Spa, pool, and more!
At MEETinLEEDS, we absolutely love working with our partners across the city to ensure we deliver the best experience possible. We would like to thank those across our partners who helped this campaign and we are looking forward to working with them in the future.
