    The Grosvenor is a hotel in the Sheffield centre. It was opened in 1966 and was a 5 star hotel. The hotel itself was not modernised to keep it at that standard and by the time of its closure in 2010 the building was in need of renovation. There are mixed reviews on trip adviser but many cited the condition of the hotel to be an issue. I found this particularly scaving one;

    The hotel closed in 2010, however it did well to last that long. In 2008, curiously at the start of the recession, the area surrounding the hotel was set for demolition to make way for a new retain quarter.

    None of that actually happened. The hotel closed and was used as a police dog training area. Now the car park is being used as *drum roll* a car park. Proceeds for the parking go to St Luke's hospice charity. It's quite reasonably priced as well.

    Visited with Kaplan and Jazzywheelz. Was good to get in and have a look round in daylight as well. Fun explore, even got chance to test out the x100 I just got. On with the pics;

    Had a little stop off on the 1st level of the roof.

    Up to the top of the tower. The tower was where the bedrooms were. By this point it was dark so we didn't bother going round these. Most of the place was stripped and empty anyway.

    From the top;

    Aye, that ballroom was huge. Read somewhere that a guy wanted to open it for large capacity weddings as there's not (m)any places locally that can accommodate private parties of that size. Cheers fella :thumb

    Glad we finally ticked this one off. Actually quite annoyed that we left it so long though :banghead

    Might tag my shots on here when I actually get round to processing them.
