A new city centre hotel has announced it will open its doors next month.
Dakota Deluxe Leeds is described as the jewel in the crown of Evans Property Group’s £25m investment into rejuvenating the Bond Court area of Leeds city centre. It is due to open on May 1.
The boutique 84-bedroom hotel, which is situated between Russell Street and Greek Street, is the fourth for the independently-owned Dakota Group, led by Ken McCulloch, who founded Malmaison Hotels.
There are two hotels in and near Glasgow and another in Edinburgh.
Mr McCulloch said: “It is great being back in Leeds and it’s time that Leeds had a luxury hotel because the city deserves it”.
The hotel boss gave his creative team, headed by international award-winning interior designer Amanda Rosa, the remit of designing a hotel which oozes luxurious elegance.
He added. “The majority of time spent working away from home is always grudged and so we wanted to create a very special experience.”
The hotel includes the Bar & Grill restaurant and Salon Privé, a cocktail bar with a first-floor terrace.
