The Ricoh Arena in Coventry is fast becoming one of the UK’s premier leisure venues. The Ricoh Arena is perhaps best known of as the home of Coventry City FC, but it also has a growing reputation as a leading conference, exhibition and concert venue. In the past few years renowned music acts such as Oasis, Take That, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Bon Jovi, Bryan Adams, Kings of Leon, Rod Stewart and The Specials have all entertained crowds at the Ricoh Arena, both in the main stadium and the 8000 capacity Jaguar Hall.
In addition, the venue has also hosted major sporing events, including England U-21 internationals, Heineken Cup Rugby, Premier League Darts and the Women’s FA Cup Final. Most notable in the Ricoh’s short history has to be its selection as a venue for football at the London 2012 Olympics, making it one of only a handful of venues outside of the capital, and the only Olympic venue in the Midlands.
The impressive range of on-site facilities continues to grow, and now includes several bars and restaurants, one of the UK’s largest casinos, offices, a health club and a 65 bedroom De Vere hotel.
The boutique-style De Vere hotel offers a very unique hotel experience, it is located right at the very heart of the Arena complex, and as a result offers 46 rooms boasting a pitch-side view (rooms which are cleverly converted to executive boxes on match days).
A total of 21 mini suites (comprising washer/dryer, combination microwave, integrated fridge, in-room bath and shower), 3 junior suites and one master suite are also available. All suites are impressively appointed and include a King or Queen-sized bed, an in-room bath, separate bedroom and lounge, plasma TVs and DVD players, Monsoon showers and master and junior bedrooms.
