Grand Hotel, located at 72 Piotrkowska Street, is a hotel with the longest history in Łódź - it has been functioning for over 129 years! From the very beginning, it has been synonymous with prestige and elegance. For many years, its primacy in the city was unquestioned, permanently co-creating the history of Łódź. Hotel hosted such figures as Henryk Sienkiewicz, Helena Modrzejewska, Jan Kiepura, Stefan Jaracz, Kornel Makuszyński, Władysław Broniewski, Zofia Nałkowska, Jan Brzechwa and Krzysztof Penderecki.
The impressive building developed in the second half of the 19th century has a complicated history. Initially it was Ludwik Meyer's woolen and cotton factory, and it wasn't until 1887 that it started receiving guests. Ballrooms – Malinowa and Złota - were created probably during the reconstruction in 1911-1913. Before the outbreak of World War I, a cinema was opened in the hotel, which functioned until the end of the 1930s. In the years 1945-1947, the theatre "Syrena" was operating in this hall, and from 1965 to 1988 - Theatre 7.15.
The hotel has been placed in the plot of the novel "The Promised Land" by Władysław Reymont. In front of the object, on Piotrkowska Street, there is the Łódź Avenue of Stars. Hotel suites are named after Polish actors who stayed here, such as: Beata Tyszkiewicz, Jan Machulski, Krystyna Janda, Janusz Gajos, Marek Kondrat, Daniel Olbrychski, Jerzy Stuhr. There is also the Artur Rubinstein's suite.
In 2010, the Grand Hotel became a property of the Likus Hotele group. To continue the traditions, the owners made it accessible in the current standard. In the near future, the object will undergo gradual revalorization to meet the requirements of five-star hotels. The renovation is not only designed to refresh the facility, but also to restore the splendor of the theatre hall, which will have many functions in the future.
