Four Grange Hotels in London to rebrand as Leonardo properties

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

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.

Four Grange Hotels to rebrand as Leonardo

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.

    I checked my Marriott (Delta) booking for May yesterday (OCD) and found that I could click to rebook and get 6,000 points back.
    You may wish to check yours.

      • Jay H says:

        Sorry realised that’s a bit important information I missed off!

        Terminal 3

        Thank you

        • Shoestring says:

          with Business BA fare, you can do a tour: BA, American, Cathay, Qantas – they are all meant to be pretty good and offer advantage in certain areas – all have been reviewed here on HfP

          I think my 18YO son & I are due our T3 lounge ‘tour’ during the May half term hols, I’m keeping him off booze so I’ll have to make up for that! 🙂

        • Rob says:

          Aspire and No 1 are both accessible and both about equal. We have reviewed both if you search.

    Big news today, Chip launched its new card. Only 10,001 available so go quickly

    • Paul Stevens says:

      Very good!

    • Peter 64K says:

      Love it!

    • The Savage Squirrel says:

      Hahaha that is great. I hope it stays up so we can post a link every time someone mentions they like the colour/weight/feel/taste/status of some stupid card made of metal.

    • S says:

      >ChipLead will not fit into most (or any) payment terminals. Contactless payment functionality is unavailable due to the signal insulating properties of lead. Mild poisoning may occur if you lick the card or sweat excessively whilst holding it.

    OT Does the Car insurance excess cover provided by amex platinum cover car sharing schemes such as Drivy?

  • Grant says:

    Pro rata refund

    • Grant says:

      Sorry – just reread your question. I believe cash back is lost if you cancel early.

  • Andrew M says:

    Yup, lost.

  • Liz says:

    OT Did everyone who have a Revolut account get emails last week telling them that their account numbers and sort code number are changing from 22/5 – I don’t have any income set up going in to it or out of it on a regular basis but the old numbers apparently stop working on 22/5 – always suspicious of these kinds of emails.

    • Grant says:

      I got the same email.

    • Liz says:

      Just had a reply from Revolut and they say it is legit

      • Mark2 says:

        I have tried the new number and it works. Although I find that Revolut are v. annoying.

    • John says:

      Why did you think this wasn’t real?

      • Liz says:

        Because if you get a scam letter telling your account number is changing and you go and tell your employer/pension the new account number then you may be scammed out of your money. Don’t understand why they are changing the account number. Lots of people have lost money this way.

        • Alan says:

          They seem to have changed payments provider and now Faster Payments should work, which is handy.

    Can virgin flying club miles be transferred from one person to another?

    I have a colleague who has no need for their 20k miles, and glad to gift them to me.

    I have circa 150k.

    • ChrisC says:

      Yes but at a cost (but I think it’s free if they are gold)

      If they log into their FC account and uses the transfer miles function there is a drop down menu showing the cost.

      There is a section in flying club called something like ‘buy, gift, transfer miles’.
