Following an incredibly tumultuous couple of years, we’ve got everything crossed that Manchester’s hospitality sector can begin to move forward without any further stumbling blocks.

With that being said, it’s been hugely encouraging to witness the city’s resilience even in the most trying of circumstances. As the new year gets underway, we’ll be looking ahead to some of Manchester’s biggest and best openings expected to pop up over the next twelve months.

Up first, hotels…

Leonardo Hotel | East Piccadilly

The Leonardo Hotel’s Jenga-inspired design won an award from the City’s Society of Architects before construction had even gotten underway.

Close to Piccadilly Station and expected to open in spring, the hotel boasts 275 luxury rooms, along with a ground floor bar and restaurant.

Along with the clear Jenga influence, the structure also pays homage to Milan’s ‘vertical forest’ tower blocks and has been designed to bring vitality back to the area, featuring lashings of greenery adorning throughout.

Treehouse Hotel | Blackfriars

After becoming such a huge hit in that-there London, Manchester is set to get its very own Treehouse Hotel towards the end of this year.

The new opening forms part of a much-needed £200m redevelopment of the former Renaissance Hotel on Deansgate, which will also include space along the River Irwell for pop-up food and drink vendors.

Clayton Hotel | Portland Street

Open now, the Clayton is a new four-star touted as a landmark destination on the evolving Portland Street.

Glossy interiors complement a mezzanine overlooking a busy bar area on the ground floor, with a feature staircase connecting the two.

The hotel will also host the No.55 restaurant, which puts local suppliers at the heart of its modern British cuisine offering.

Maldron Hotel | Oxford Road

All things going to plan, the Maldron should be with us in February, bringing with it 278 high-quality modern rooms.

Set within the brand-new Circle Square development just off Oxford Road, the hotel will offer the ideal base for exploring Manchester’s cultural hotspots.

There’ll also be an on-site coffee shop using beans from Red Bean Roastery, a restaurant and bar and an array of high-spec meeting spaces.
