Following its acquisition of what was one of the single largest portfolio sales in the UK in 2018 with the purchase of the iconic Midland Hotel in Manchester, the Fattal Hotel Group is acquiring the long-term lease on four Grange Hotels in London.
Marking the group’s first entry into the central London market, the deal involves more than 1,300 bedrooms, with the new hotels including the Grange Tower Bridge, the Grange St Paul’s, the Grange City and the Grange Holborn.
In the heart of the business and financial district, the properties will be operated by Jurys Inn & Leonardo Hotels UK and Ireland. Tower Bridge, St Paul’s and City Hotels will become Leonardo Royals, and Holborn will become the group’s first NYX Hotel by Leonardo Hotels in the UK.
Their addition brings the total number within the Jurys Inn and Leonardo Hotels UK and Ireland Group to 53, following a year of significant expansion. In total, the division now has more than 11,000 bedrooms across the Fattal group.
The Leonardo portfolio in Europe and Israel has more than 200 hotels with 38,000-plus rooms in more than 100 destinations. Brands include Leonardo Hotels, Leonardo Royal Hotels and NYX Hotels by Leonardo Hotels.
Also included are the newly-acquired Jurys Inn (UK and Ireland) and Apollo Hotels (Netherlands) collections. The group also recently acquired Southampon’s Grand Harbour Hotel.
