Coventry City Council will spend over £1 million to prepare land for a new four-star hotel to be built near Friargate.

The hotel will be operated by Hotel Indigo and will include a 100-cover fine dining restaurant and themed bars.

The proposal will be submitted to the planning committee in the autumn and if approved, work is expected to begin early in 2020. This would mean the hotel should be complete by spring 2021.
