The Telegraph Hotel is set to open its doors in November this year in the former headquarters of the city’s newspaper.
The Corporation Street hotel is being redeveloped by Complex Development Projects (CDP) and will be operated by Bespoke Hotels, the largest independent hotel company in the UK.
The hotel will be open in good time for Coventry’s City of Culture year.
The Telegraph Hotel features 88 fully air-conditioned bedrooms, several of which are duplex penthouse suites, along with large doubles and twins.
It also features an all-day bar and restaurant called the Forme & Chase, and a rooftop bar, Generators, which overlooks Belgrade Square.
The hotel includes meeting and conference facilities. The Editors Suite, can accommodate up to 160 and has a pre-function bar. There are also two private rooms – the Boardroom and Directors – which can each accommodate up to 12 people for meetings and private dinners.
The hotel has been designed to retain many of the Mid-Century features with an incredible attention to detail.
Brian Harrabin, of Complex Development Projects said “We have been working for so long on getting all the details and the construction right that it was great to actually start showing people what we have achieved.
“Our aim has always been to create a hotel with that wow factor and the focus on Mid-century architecture and design helps to do just that. We are extremely pleased with the fantastic response that we have had and look forward to showcasing the finished hotel with everyone very soon.”
The Coventry Society is impressed by the attention to detail in restoring this iconic mid twentieth century building. The original building was constructed independently but to a pattern and with a pallet of materials that integrated it with the redevelopment of the city centre. The restoration has paid full respect to these original plans and created a high quality hotel for Coventry to be proud of.
