The former Midland Grand Hotel opened in 1873 as a luxury hotel sporting a fireplace in each room, hydraulic lifts and a grand staircase. It shut its doors during the inter-war years after having been taken over by the London, Midland and Scottish Railway and was subsequently used as railway offices for several decades. This Gothic Revival-style masterpiece has reopened as a 5-star hotel a few years ago. Cost: from £279 per night.
