If you work in the City you are probably familiar with Grange Hotels, which has some prime sites and was one of the first groups to open hotels in the area.
(When I started work in 1994 there were literally no major hotels in the City, with the Thistle at St Katherine Docks – which was dire even then – being the sole option.)
Four of the Grange Hotels sites – Grange Tower Bridge, Grange St Paul’s, Grange City and Grange Holborn, with 1300 rooms in total – have been sold to Israeli group Fattal.
Fattal already owns Jurys Inn and the Leonardo Hotels brands. Leonardo took over one of the Heathrow Holiday Inn sites a couple of years ago. It also owns the Grand Harbour hotel in Southampton and the iconic Midland Hotel in Manchester.
Grange Tower Bridge, St Pauls’s and City will be rebranded as ‘Leonardo Royal’ whilst Holborn will be the first UK hotel under the ‘Nyx by Leonardo’ brand.
You can earn 500 Lufthansa Miles & More miles per stay at Leonardo Hotels but that is the only airline deal they have. Details of how to get Miles & More miles can be found on the website here.
