Marriott to open Manchester hotel after near three-year wait

29th March 2023 | Jack Oliver

Marriott is preparing to open its first extended-stay hotel in the north of England after a delay of nearly three years.

Plans for the group’s fifth Residence Inn in Manchester City Centre were announced in 2019, with the hotel expected to open in late 2020.

The property had previously been operating as The Northern Quarters Service Apartments Manchester and has been in the process of a refurbishment.

The 155-room aparthotel is now expected to open its doors in May.

The hotel will offer lounge areas and a coffee shop, as well as meeting spaces and outdoor dining facilities.

The property will also house two dedicated retail units on the ground floor, which can be accessed independently from the hotel.

UK advisor for Dubai-based conglomerate PHH, Morris Katri, said: “The Ancoats and Piccadilly areas have seen significant redevelopment and investment over recent years, with Residence Inn set to add to the offering available further.

“This hotel will enhance the community with its unique long stay offering and beautiful interiors, plus bring more jobs to the area, boosting the centre’s economic growth.”
