Bradford is a thriving city and a very popular tourist destination, attracting more and more visitors who love exploring its many attractions. The city hasn’t managed to recover completely from the decline of the textile industry in the mid-20th century, however, both large companies and small business owners have recognised the opportunities offered by the de-industrialisation process.
No matter if you are planning to travel to Bradford for business or pleasure, TomahawkHotels recommends you to consider staying at:
The Midland Hotel. Even though it advertises itself as a four-star hotel, The Midland Hotel is one of the very top establishments in Bradford. This also clearly reveals the long list of prominent guests which also includes celebrities such as The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Laurel and Hardy, and Sir Henry Irving who even died in the hotel in 1905. Upgraded to cater for the needs of modern travellers, the hotel is today owned and run by the Peel Hotels company.
Hollins Hall, Marriott Hotel & Country Club. This hotel is most popular with leisure travellers looking for some peace and relaxation as well as those who like to combine business and pleasure. Besides offering luxury accommodation and convenient location - it is just a short drive from both Bradford and Leeds - the hotel also provides its guests with access to its 18-hole championship golf course.
Premier Inn Bradford Central. A part of the Premier Inn chain of budget hotels, Premier Inn Bradford Central is one of the most popular hotels in the city. And it is popular with a wide range of travellers who are giving it excellent ratings for comfort, cleanliness, service and location. It is situated in the very city centre, offering easy (and quick) access to the business areas and Bradford’s prime attractions.
Located less than 9 miles of Leeds and 16 miles of Wakefield, Bradford is one of the sub-divisions of the West Yorkshire Urban Area which is home to about 1.7 million people. Bradford alone has approximately a half a million residents. The former “Wool Capital of the World” has today a highly diversified economy with tourism being one of the key industries.
