Investment in regeneration schemes across Manchester, UK, are pushing forward high end hotel projects in the area.

Nearly 4,000 new or updated upscale or luxury hotel rooms are heading to the heart of England’s north west over the next few years.

Flying high

Spread across 23 projects, these schemes are part of a huge amount of capital injected into the city over the last decade.

One of these is the £180 million Airport City hotel district which is part of Manchester Airport’s 10-year, £1 billion Manchester Transformation Programme or MANTP investment.

At least four high end hotel projects are currently underway in the vicinity, including the 412-key Tribe Manchester Airport, which is expected to open in Q1 2024. The site will include a restaurant and bar, gym and crew lounge for airline staff, allowing for convenient access to northern England’s largest airport.

Training programme

Another transport-prompted scheme is the redevelopment of Manchester Piccadilly station and its surrounds, in preparation for the scheduled arrival of the HS2 high speed rail line around the end of this decade.

Two upscale hotels are taking shape in the station’s environs, The Zetter Hotel Fire Station and Manchester Mayfield Park.

The Zetter site is converting the grade two listed London Road Fire Station building into a 42-key boutique hotel to open by the end of this year, while the Mayfield Park newbuild will see a 200-room, 170,000 sq ft hotel arriving in Q4 2023.

New enterprise

Appearing in the city centre, Enterprise City is a new district designed to be a media, tech and creative cluster. This is a redevelopment of the former Granada TV studios site.

At least two high end hotel projects are underway in the area including Soho House Manchester which will deliver 140 keys in Q1 2023 and The Nadler at St. Johns Place, a luxury tower with 160 rooms and suites located across the first to15th floors.

Umpteen upscale

Overall, the high end hotels recorded in the TOPHOTEPROJECTS database for the city comprise 65% upscale and 35% luxury sites. The pipeline is fairly steady, with three projects completing this year, five in 2023, four in 2024 and the remaining 11 either scheduled for further in the future or without a delivery date yet.

The vast majority are independent properties, with only Hilton Worldwide’s Hampton by Hilton brand appearing more than once, with two developments.
