Leeds Hotels and Accommodation
(Leeds, West Yorkshire, England, UK)
Leeds is first and foremost a business destination, and as such, hotels are more expensive during the week, with lodging rates being reduced to entice weekend visitors on Friday and Saturday nights, and during the summer holidays. Accommodation in Leeds comes in various guises, ranging from small guest houses and B&Bs, to large multi-storey hotel complexes in the heart of the city.
Familiar chain accommodation is popular with both tourists and business travellers alike, and there are certainly plenty of options to choose between around the city. The most notable of these include the Best Western Merrion Hotel on Wade Lane, the Crowne Plaza Leeds on Wellington Street, the Express by Holiday Inn on Cavendish Street, the Novotel on Whitehall Quay, and the Radisson Blu on the Headrow.
If your budget is tight and finding affordable accommodation is a problem, then pay a visit to the Gateway to Yorkshire Tourist Information Centre at the Arcade, within the Leeds City Train Station, where last-minute special offers may be available. A good alternative to mainstream hotels is the Roundhay Caravanning and Camping Site on Elmet Lane, within the affluent Roundhay suburb.
For a spot of luxury accommodation in Leeds, there are plenty of four-star hotels to choose between. If your budget is healthy and you feel like splashing out a little, consider staying at the Hilton City on Neville Street, the Park Plaza on Boar Lane, the Marriott on Trevelyan Square, or the highly regarded Queens Hotel on City Square, which is just a stroll away from the Shopping Plaza on Lower Basinghall Street.
The B&Bs available in Leeds tend to offer a relatively basic level of accommodation, with the most conveniently situated being found just behind the university campus. Further B&Bs are located on Cardigan Road, in the Headingley area, close to the Yorkshire County Cricket Club.
