Yotel to open Manchester hotel

26 Nov 2013 by GrahamSmith

Yotel is opening a hotel in Manchester, its first non-airport property in the UK.

The 258-room hotel will be in the city’s Piccadilly¬†district and will stand at 20 storeys tall.

The development, which was formally approved by local councillors last week, will also include the conversion of the adjacent Grade II-listed Union Bank building.

The new hotel will feature a lounge bar, a kitchen, conference room, meeting rooms, an office and a gym on the ground and first floors, with guestrooms on floors two to four.

Yotel rooms are inspired by first-class airline cabins and feature monsoon rain showers, purple mood lighting and a “techno wall” with a flatscreen television and iPod connectivity.

In July, Yotel revealed it will open its first hotel in Asia with a property in Singapore (see news, July 17).
