Over the last 80 years, some of the biggest names in showbusiness and politics have passed through its doors.
The Queens, built by William Airey and Sons of Leeds was officially opened on November 12, 1937 by the Princess Royal and the 6th Earl of Harewood.
Now it has reopened its doors after undergoing a huge transformation which aims to reflect the changing demands of the post-pandemic business world.

A spokesman said: "The modernised hotel will not only pay homage to its rich history but most importantly, it will play to the new way people are using city centre hotel spaces for co-working and socialising."
