The venue finding team had a great Fam Trip with Grange Hotels this weekend. Our account manager Matt Weaving took time out of his busy schedule and weekend to show us around some of the fantastic properties the chain have to offer in London.
Grange Hotels are London’s leading independent hotel group and below are some of the hotels we saw:
Grange St Paul's Hotel
This 5*hotel is located in the heart of the financial district and next to St Paul’s Cathedral. It has a huge glass Atrium that follows through to the reception area, bars & restaurant. With a main meeting room that can accommodate 730 theatre style and a further 13 meeting rooms located over two dedicated floors, the hotel has very flexible space. The hotel also has 434 bedrooms (including suites), some with fantastic views over St Pauls Cathedral (we had the opportunity to drink a few glasses of champagne on this very balcony!). The Sky Bar is located at the top floor and has a fantastic roof terrace with wonderful views over London making this an ideal place for drinks receptions & private functions. We also got to experience the fantastic Japanese restaurant where everything is cooked right in front of you, such a delight.
Grange Tower Bridge Hotel
The hotel was opened last May and is eco-friendly (incorporates renewable solar & photo-voltaic panels, and has an on-site borehole to reduce water consumption). With 370 bedrooms (including superior & executive rooms), 10 meetings rooms – the largest accommodating up to 750 theatre style and another for up to 400 theatre style this is the place to be. Leisure facilities include a 25 metre swimming pool, sauna, steam room & luxurious spa.
Grange City Hotel
Minutes from Tower Bridge, Tower of London and Tower Hill tube station, this 5 star hotel offers some unique panoramic views over the City. The hotel has 15 meetings rooms including a state-of-the-art, double height, flexible auditorium accommodating upto 500 theatre style along with 318 bedrooms (including 10 suites & a penthouse). Corporate events can be set in the piazza which features the historic Roman wall.
Grange Holborn Hotel
What a perfect location, just two minutes walk from Holborn station and minutes from some of the best areas in London i.e Covent Garden, Leicester Square and Trafalgar Square with easy access to shops, museum, galleries etc. The hotel has 201 bedrooms with all the amenities that you would require from a 4* hotel. On-site there is a purpose-built conference and events centre that offers six inter-connecting meeting rooms so is very versatile for all of your conferencing needs. The highlight of this hotel is a stunning roof top terrace that can cater for up to 150 guests – it also has an area that is fully glassed and can be used in the winter or Summer, great for corporate BBQ’s and other special parties / drinks receptions.
The Conference People look forward to continuing their close relationship with Grange Hotels.
