The 10 best hotels in Leeds

Discover the top hotels in Leeds handpicked by local expert Helen Pickles.
Helen Pickles
December 6, 2023

One of the largest cities in the UK’s largest county, Leeds, Yorkshire, is surely one of the country’s hidden gems. Stretching north from the River Aire, and Leeds and Liverpool Canal, through wide streets of Victorian and modern buildings, it’s a busy commercial city packed with culture. Museums and galleries include the Royal Armouries and Leeds Art Gallery, while the cultural scene ranges from Opera North at The Grand Theatre to big-name gigs at First Direct Arena. Shopping is equally tempting, with offerings ranging from bargain-hunting at Kirkgate Market, one of the largest covered markets in Europe, to designer labels in the gloriously restored Victorian Quarter arcades. Most of the best hotels in Leeds are close to the central area around City Square; some in converted commercial buildings, others in striking new structures with commanding views from their upper floors. Regardless of how much you love shopping, here are ten of the top-rated hotels in Leeds.

1.

The Queens Hotel

Address:

New Station Street, 1 City Square, Leeds

Price:

$17-599/night

Standing commandingly in City Square next to the railway station, the Queens Hotel is one of the best hotels in Leeds. Befitting this location, it’s a strikingly luminous art deco building with a starry historic guest list including Princess Grace of Monaco, Cary Grant, and Nelson Mandela.
Recently refurbished, it has a contemporary glamor that combines original features like mirrored panels, parquet flooring with modern art deco designs, such as geometric-patterned carpets. It’s big – 232 bedrooms – but somehow feels like a private club; I loved sitting on a stool in the cocktail bar and watching the bartender mix me a Martini.
Food in the restaurant is a mix of Pan-Asian and British staples that suits the colonial-style décor. Bedrooms are sleek, monochrome affairs with black-and-white art deco-influenced bathrooms. Go for City Square-facing rooms for the best views.

2.

DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Leeds City Centre

Address:

Granary Wharf, 2 Wharf Approach

Price:

$97-532/night

Overlooking the Leeds and Liverpool Canal that runs behind the railway station, and close to the bars and restaurants that have sprung up in this regenerated area, this modern mid-rise hotel is a handy choice for short city breaks. I met up here with a bunch of old school friends for a fun weekend.
A few minutes’ walk from the station, in the area known as Granary Wharf, and within easy reach of bars and shops – plus canal-side strolls – it’s easily one of the best hotels in Leeds. The open-plan ground-floor bar and restaurant are pleasantly relaxed with an all-day casual menu plus heated outdoor terrace.
The top-floor Sky Lounge cocktail bar gives a stunning panorama over the city. Bedrooms are light and modern with floor-to-ceiling windows.

3.

Thorpe Park Hotel & Spa

Address:

1150 Century Way

Price:

$116-391/night

For one of the best hotels in Leeds, it’s worth moving outside the city center to Thorpe Park Hotel. True, it’s not in an immediately obvious location – a business and retail park – but it’s easy to reach and the city center is just a 15-minute drive away.
The modern, low-rise building’s spa includes a Himalayan salt sauna, steam room and whirlpool, plus a swimming pool. Treatments use the French, natural-product-based Caudalie range and luxury British brand, Templespa. This is one of the best hotels in Leeds for active travelers, with a hi-tech gym plus exercise studio with a full range of classes.
Afterwards, chill out in the light and colorful atrium with its all-day dining or eat more classily from the Modern British menu in the restaurant. Bedrooms are large, sleek, and understated – the top-tier rooms even have complimentary stocked mini-bars – while children are made welcome with family rooms, mini-robes, and their own room service menus.

4.

Roomzzz Leeds City

Address:

10 Swinegate

Price:

$71-364/night

For convenience, flexibility, and a cracking location, it’s hard to beat these sleek one- and two-bedroom apartments. The Roomzzz (you either like or loathe the name) ‘aparthotel’ chain has made a name for itself with its contemporary mini apartments, fully serviced, and in prime city locations.
The Leeds City branch is no exception, just a five-minute walk from the station and within 10 to 15 minutes of shops, restaurants, galleries, and concert venues. Slick, neat and modern – wooden flooring, clean-cut furniture, and floor-to-ceiling windows – each has a fully fitted kitchen, sofa, and bathroom with walk-in shower and nice White Company toiletries, too.
Larger apartments have space for additional beds or a second bedroom with bunk beds, which makes them an affordable family or group-of-friends option. Simple breakfasts are also available if you need a lazy start to the day.

5.

Leeds Marriott Hotel

Address:

4 Trevelyan Square Boar Lane

Price:

$100-458/night

On one side, the hotel overlooks a leafy square: on the other one of the city’s principal streets, Boar Lane. So, you get both peace and quiet as well as the buzz of a big city. Plus, everything is conveniently nearby: both station and regenerated riverside are five-minute walks away, the shiny Trinity shopping mall even closer, and Leeds Art Gallery a relaxed 10-minute stroll.
It’s a sleek and modern hotel decorated with colorful art and big mirrors in a grand-looking period building, aimed at both leisure and business guests. Families, too. Bedrooms are airy and generous, with fuss-free furnishings and more of that art adding pops of color against neutral backgrounds.
Opt for an Executive room or above to be spoiled with complimentary breakfast, snacks, and drinks in the private lounge. Everyone is welcome in the big and lively Gino d’Acampo restaurant with its marble bar, glamorous sheen, and menu of Italian classics.

6.

Malmaison Leeds

Address:

1 Swinegate

Price:

$92-522/night

Malmaison hotels often choose interesting, unlikely buildings to transform into their hotels. Their location in Leeds, Malmaison Leeds, is no exception. The Victorian, a red brick building with multi-paned windows sitting prominently on the corner of two streets, was formerly the headquarters of the local bus company, Leeds City Tramways.
Its dimly-lit lower-ground-floor entrance, which might have defeated other new owners has been turned into a virtue. They’ve created an intimate, clubby-style bar and restaurant with exposed-brick walls, ruby-red and bitter-chocolate banquettes, high windows and festoons of naked lightbulbs.
The grill-style menu serves up hearty portions – if you want dessert, I suggest skipping starters. Bedrooms are big and airy in sober colors with bold splashes in quirky feature wallpapers. Bright bathrooms all have tubs as well as showers. As some rooms have high windows, I asked for one where they stretch from floor to ceiling.

7.

Radisson Blu Hotel Leeds City Centre

Address:

1 The Light The Headrow

Price:

$53-568/night

Don’t dismiss this hotel because it’s part of a corporate chain. A mistake I almost made. The Radisson Blu Hotel Leeds City Centre works hard to give a real sense of place. It has taken a grand art deco building, the former headquarters of the Leeds Permanent Building Society, and joined it seamlessly into The Light, a modern shopping mall and cinema complex.
The double-height ground floor, with its high arched windows, is an impressive space that combines industrial-chic bar, bright restaurant – grilled food is a specialty – and clubby lounge. I gave a small shriek when I turned around and found I was being stared at by a huge mural of locally born actor Peter O’Toole.
The 147 bedrooms may lack individuality, but they’re extremely calming, in soft shades of gray and white with sleek white and glass-topped furniture. Avoid the inner, mall-facing rooms if you can. The best overlook Leeds cathedral or the town hall.

8.

Dakota Leeds

Address:

8 Russell Street

Price:

$144-569/night
