A Fascinating Past and a Vibrant Future: Hotels in Nottingham
A number of the hotels in Nottingham reflect the city’s past. At one point, Nottingham was a world leader in the lace-making industry. Today, the Lace Market has been transformed into one of the main hubs of the Creative Quarter, its old warehouses and storerooms having been given a new life as restaurants, shops and cafés. The Lace Market Hotel by Compass Hospitality is a converted Georgian townhouse that now offers boutique accommodation set in contemporary surroundings and boasting all the little extras you’d expect from luxury accommodation.
