We’re delighted to announce that The Principal York has been shortlisted twice over in the EHDAs 2016 (The European Hotel Design Awards, run by leading hospitality magazine Sleeper). The first nomination is for the Renovation & Restoration category, whilst the second is for the Lobby, Lounge & Public Areas. The new design for the hotel, which originally dates from 1878 and is Grade-II-listed, sought to reinstate the hotel’s essential character and breathe new life into the interiors to create spaces that were bright and light, subtle and warm and full of a sense of welcome.
