The Manchester Hotel Scene is buzzing with plenty of
exciting new projects on the horizon! Here's a
- A new Holiday Inn has been confirmed for Manchester Piccadilly;
330+ bedrooms to hopefully include up-market apartments on the
top two floors. This is likely to be completed by 2014.
- We are excited about Hotel Future which is set to open in
Oldham in 2015. This is a hotel which will operate like no other -
doubling as a training academy where staff learn all aspects of the
hotel trade "on the job". The project is backed by the Manchester
Hoteliers Association and Oldham Council and is gathering pace with
an agreed location and part funding.They are currently seeking
further investment into this 5 star hotel concept that will be the
market leader in Hospitality training in the UK.
- There are exciting times ahead for Radisson as they continue
their re-branding from Radisson Edwardian to Radisson Blu. There
will be potential to invest in this impressive Manchester property
with the addition of 2 extra floors offering substantial suites to
rival its closest competitors. This project combined with their
Leicester square project will take the Radisson group brand to new
- MacDonald Piccadilly has been chosen to launch the Scottish
Steak club concept within their in-house restaurant. An open
kitchen with an indoor barbeque offers a unique dining experience
to rival Manchester's choice of steak house restaurants.
- The Apartment hotel concepts are also muscling in heavily on
the Manchester hotel scene, winning business from many of the
4 and 5 star properties not just in the corporate short /long stay
market but in the celebrity business. There are some
interesting characters staying over in the next few weeks!
