Leeds is a vibrant metropolis - voted by Conde Nast as one of the UK's most popular cities - and the hotel sits near the very heart. It is within easy reach of some of the most exclusive shopping and popular attractions including the Victoria Quarter (likened to London's fashionable Bond Street) and Royal Armouries not to mention being near to the Financial District. The M62 and M1 motorways are minutes away, whilst the main railway station is a 10 minute walk and Leeds Bradford Airport is just 8 miles away.
All 109 rooms are ideal for both business and pleasure boasting contemporary interiors. All rooms have tea/coffee making facilities, trouser press, flat screen television, radio, hair dryer, 24 hour room service, iron, ironing board, direct dial telephone and en suite bathroom.
The Starlets restaurant offers a choice of continental and English cuisine, and has a popular adjoining cocktail bar.
It is a modern purpose built building.
The lobby area is quite spacious with wood panelling and marble tiled floors. There is also a small seating area.
The Merrion provides everything you would expect from a city hotel, and gives a good base to explore the bustling and vibrant atmosphere of Leeds. (GW 05/2009)

Very enjoyable stay. Room very clean and comfortable. Friendly helpful staff. We arrived early, and even though our room was not ready, they kept our bags and suggested we call back in about an hour. We did and were checked in within 3 minutes of arriving.
They gave us a free street map, and directed us to a location we wanted to visit, even told us how long it would take to get there. Well done.
Only downside was that there was a good bit of street noise, but then it was a Saturday night in a City Centre hotel, so a small issue really.
Would definitely stay here again.
