Manchester’s latest hotel has opened, pledging to blur the boundaries between business and lifestyle hotels.
Innside by Meliá Hotels 208 room hotel is located in the heart of Manchester in the centre of the vibrant First Street development. It overlooks the city’s international centre for contemporary visual art, theatre and film, HOME, with its two theatres, five cinemas and art gallery.
Located minutes away from Manchester’s museum and shopping districts and with easy access to both Manchester’s train stations and Manchester Airport, the hotel is geared towards both business and leisure travellers.
General Manager, Adam Munday, comments: “We’re very happy to launch INNSIDE Manchester. The hotel is looking great. The First Street Development is the perfect location for the brand’s first UK hotel and we’re looking forward to working alongside HOME to create memorable experiences for our guests.”
INNSIDE Manchester’s 208 rooms, including eight studio suites, will continue to follow the INNSIDE brand’s inherent design ethos for stylish, functional and contemporary rooms, with sleek ensuite bathrooms.
The new hotel is also home to “Street on First”, a restaurant and bar offering an international menu of both traditional and contemporary sharing dishes, inspired by street food around the world. The restaurant, whose aim is to create ‘food for a social mood’ will be open to both hotel guests and the general public.
The property also offers a selection of versatile meetings and events spaces with natural daylight spanning 300m² as well as a complete fitness suite, parking and complimentary Wi-Fi.
Meliá Hotels International’s chief executive and vice-chairman, Gabriel Escarrer, said: “The new cultural outlook for Manchester is an ideal framework for the growth of INNSIDE by Meliá, a brand which originated in Germany and which enjoys a fantastic reputation among our customers. We aim to bring INNSIDE to a number of key cities in Europe and across the world in the next few years.”
INNSIDE hotels have seen rapid growth in both traditional and emerging markets thanks to their adaptation to the growing demand for practical city hotels for discerning and sophisticated travellers. The brand is set to open in Manhattan, Venezuela, China amongst others in the coming years.
Prices start from £99.00.
