Manchester has welcomed the city’s first Hampton by Hilton hotel, and the 32nd property under the brand in the UK.
Located in the city’s Northern Quarter, the 221-room hotel claims to “offer something for everyone”, situated within walking distance of the Arndale Shopping Centre and counting independent record shops, colourful street art and cultural venues as its neighbours. The release also states that sporting venues such as Old Trafford, the Etihad Stadium and Lancashire Cricket Club are only a short drive away.
The hotel offers a choice of Queen and Queen Family rooms, all of which include a 49-inch flatscreen TV, free wifi and floor-to-ceiling windows with city views. The property is also well equipped to cater to groups, with interconnecting rooms, private floors, and meeting room facilities. There is also a 24-hour fitness centre.
Guests staying at the Hampton by Hilton Manchester will receive a complimentary breakfast with healthy options or On The Run breakfast bags.
The hotel is currently open to key workers, owing to the UK lockdown, and leisure guests can make future bookings on the website. The property was built by construction firm Create and is operated by hotel management company RBH.
Stephen Cassidy, SVP and Managing Director, UK&I, Hilton, commented on the opening:
“Manchester is home to some of the UK’s finest sporting and cultural attractions and the city’s Northern Quarter is the perfect home for our latest Hampton by Hilton property – joining more than 50 Hampton by Hilton hotels trading or under development across the UK.
“At Hilton, we always strive to meet the diverse travel requirements of our guests. Hampton by Hilton Manchester Northern Quarter is no exception, and we look forward to welcoming our first visitors.”
Louise O’Reilly, General Manager at Hampton by Hilton Manchester Northern Quarter, added:
“I am delighted and proud to open Hampton by Hilton in the trendy Manchester Northern Quarter. The 221 bedrooms are a fantastic addition to the city, and I know my friends and colleagues in the business community will be excited that we are now in the neighbourhood. Located in the heart of the city, we look forward to welcoming guests to our new hotel.”
Hilton recently opened two new properties in London under the Hampton brand: the Hampton by Hilton London Park Lane and Hampton by Hilton London Ealing. The brand currently has over 2,600 properties in 29 countries and territories.
