Plans are underway for no less than four new hotels at Manchester airport, with Manchester Evening News reporting that the properties are scheduled to open by 2021.

The airport is currently undergoing a £1 billion transformation programme, with a new passenger pier and multi-storey car park scheduled to open in April 2019, and a Terminal 2 extension slated for 2020.

Manchester Evening News reports that a £180 million hotel district will form part of Airport City, housing two Hilton properties, as well as Holiday Inn and Ibis Budget hotels.

A 375-room Hilton Garden Inn will feature a sky bar, garden lounge and fitness centre, while a 254-room Hampton by Hilton will have a covered walkway linking it to the airport terminal and rail station. Both of these properties are set to be built behind the airport transport interchange next to the M56.

Meanwhile a 262-room Holiday Inn and 280-room Ibis Budget hotel are both set to be located on adjacent land to the east of the airport’s Terminal 2.

Current hotel choices around the airport’s terminals and rail station include the Radisson Blu Hotel Manchester Airport, the Hilton Manchester Airport, the Clayton Hotel Manchester Airport, and the Crowne Plaza Manchester Airport.

On the west side of the airport there is another cluster of hotels including the Holiday Inn Express Manchester Airport, the Manchester Airport Marriott Hotel, and the catchily named Premier Inn Manchester Airport (M56/J6) Runger Lane North hotel.
