Manchester, a city that is a hive of hospitality activity, is about to welcome a new upscale hotel, known as The Reach at Piccadilly, Manchester, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel. Here’s what we know…
Just when we thought Manchester was at capacity with its high-end, design-led hotels, along comes Marriott International to shake things up. Named for its location – at the meeting point of the Rochdale and Ashton Canals – The Reach at Piccadilly, a new hotel expected to arrive onto the scene in Spring 2023, forms part of Tribute Portfolio, a collection of characterful, independent hotels from Marriott Bonvoy that are drawn together by their passion for captivating design and a drive to create vibrant social scenes for guests and locals alike.
The 215-key property, designed by Ica has been inspired by the heritage of its location, with figures such as the Duke of Bridgewater, James Brindley, James Rennie and William Jessop all highlighted within the design narrative. Travellers will be able to enjoy the chic interiors and fully equipped fitness centre, whilst visitors and locals alike will be welcomed to The Reach at Piccadilly’s restaurant, where locally sourced, seasonal produce will be served with the backdrop of stretching canal views.
“The Reach at Piccadilly combines local knowledge with striking design, a perfect fit for the Tribute Portfolio in the UK for 2023,” said Sandra Schulze-Potgieter, Vice President, Premium & Select Brands, EMEA, Marriott International. “This will be the third Tribute Portfolio hotel to open in the UK with a total of 20 hotels across Europe. All the hotels share a passion for captivating design, a vibrant social scene and thoughtful service; we look forward to this exciting new opening early next year.”
Speaking of the opening, Peter Nye, the General Manager of the hotel, said: “When creating the concept for the hotel, we have been conscious to create an authentic experience for travellers to enjoy. Our guests will be able to enjoy produce grown only a few miles away at the restaurant, drink a great cup of coffee which has been roasted around the corner, and we’re even working with local brewers to create a beer uniquely our own.”
The new hotel will be owned by Molo Hotels and operated by Lighthouse Hotel Management, and it will be the company’s fifth UK opening, joining Molo and Lighthouse’s expanding portfolio that also includes hotels in Aruba and Rome.
