This year (2015) we won Leicestershire Tourism's "Large Hotel of the Year" and now we are in the finals of Visit England. Noteworthy history: • Opened in 1898 • Built by Cecil Ogden in 1898 in a grand Franco-German Renaissance style reminiscent of the sixteenth century • Two years later a corner addition was added by Amos Hall. The design was influenced by the churches designed by Sir Christopher Wren. • During the early 1900s part of the Grand, on the first floor, was a cinema called ‘The Kings Hall Cinema’ • The hotel has always been considered one of Leicester's most prestigious. Its heyday was during Victorian times and now returns to these glory days following the recent refurbishments. • Winston Churchill stayed at the hotel in 1909 • The Leicester Caledonian Society’s 75th anniversary in 1952 centered on a splendid Burns dinner at the Grand Hotel, attended by the Lord Lieutenant of Leicestershire, the Lord Mayor of Leicester and Mr R K Sprigg, a grandson of founder member, John Morris Brown. • The hotel escaped bombing during World War II, many employers returned to work there after the war had ended.
