HOTELS - SPECIAL LFF DEALS (Cosmopolitan & Marriott)

NEW COSMOPOLITAN RATES FOR 2014 LFF EVENTS

Room Only Bed & Breakfast

Single 45.00 49.50
Small Double (3/4bed) 55.00 62.00
Double/Twin 64.00 71.00

The LFF rate is available up to 2 weeks before event and need to book direct with hotel - subject to sufficient rooms being available. Please note that certain months do book up well in advance and rooms at the LFF rate may not be available

Other clarifications in relation to Cosmopolitan Hotel:

FUTURE EVENTS:

LFF is growing fast and the recent opening of Leeds Arena and Trinity centre have increased pressure on hotel rooms throughout Leeds. As such obtaining rooms at Cosmo may not be as easy in the future

June 2014 due to the Womens Institute Annual Conference being held in Leeds that weekend the hotel is already getting booked up. The LFF rate is not available for this month and the rates offered are:

Single £69 Bed and Breakfast

Double/Twin £89 Bed and Breakfast

July 2014 coincides with the Grand Depart of the Tour de France. The rates for this weekend will be:

£109 a single and £149 double/twin on a room only basis

RATES FOR NON LFF NIGHTS
Cosmopolitan will extend the LFF rate to a Thursday evening as well and they do offer a discount to two night bookers of approx £4 for the Saturday if booked direct. So anyone wanting Saturday in addition could have this discount.

BAR HOURS
Cosmo have a licence to 2 a.m. daily so anyone can get a drink till this time. A resident may buy a non resident a drink after 2 a.m. but it must be charged to the room and not a cash payment, therefore they will need to have asked to have their account open at check in (leave a credit card swipe)

DRINKS & DRINKS PRICES
Cosmo will continue to offer cocktails at a discounted rate and a food voucher option may also be avaiable. I will update when rates confirmed.

A message from the manager at Cosmopolitan Hotel:

"The LFF night is not only good financially for the Hotel but all my team enjoy it and the behaviour of all the girls is excellent. I love the buzz on a first Friday and seeing the place so busy, long may it continue. We never get any negative feedback from anyone following an event it’s been enjoyable seeing the event grow over the years."

Oh dear what a strange LFF with next to nobody out. I do hope there were no first time visitors because if there were they will have got completely the wrong impression. I suppose it was always going to quiet with the Tour de France and Sparkle coming up but I didn't expect virtual desertion. Maybe it got a bit busier later but I'd gone home by then and the weather Urgh.

Most of the hotels were full.

Still a good night out.

Incredibly quiet in terms of turnout due to the tour de france, but a good night all the same. Popped to Fibre, said hello and had a nice chat then headed to Smokestack where it was packed and playing some great music as usual. The whole weekend had a celebratory feel to it due to le tour : p

Next month is Pride weekend, so expect it to be RAMMED. Bring it on : )
