Global hotel brand YOTEL, renowned for challenging the status quo of the traditional hotel stay, is bringing its innovative hospitality concept to the city centre of Manchester, this month as the brand opens its newest hotel in Deansgate. We thought we would take a closer look…
Rebranding the Qbic hotel on the corner of iconic Deansgate and John Dalton Street, the new YOTEL sits in a top spot for exploring the best of Manchester’s bars, restaurants, culture, shopping and live music venues. YOTEL Manchester Deansgate will be about so much more than just a great night’s sleep, offering an experience perfect for today’s smart, tech savvy travellers.
“We’re delighted that Manchester is the location of our newest hotel.” said CEO of YOTEL Hubert Viriot. “Home to world- famous football clubs, Europe’s fastest-growing tech hub and a vibrant economic powerhouse, the city has always been high on our agenda. Manchester resonates perfectly with Generation YO and is a great addition to our other UK hotels in London, Edinburgh and Glasgow.”
With 261 cabins, each full to the brim with personality and texture, the hotel is ideal for those looking for a boutique stay experience, but without the hefty price tag. All are equipped with comfortable and organic Naturalmat mattresses, large TVs, refreshing rain showers and free superfast WiFi. The stylish cabins range in size from 15 –26 sqm, with some enjoying fantastic city views. Keeping true to the brand’s sustainability strategy, the hotel also boasts top-notch green credentials, including energy efficient LED lighting which automatically turn off when not needed, solar panels to generate electricity and eco-friendly showers that reduce water usage.
The ground floor of the hotel is also home to Motley, a quirky restaurant and bar with outdoor terrace, that is popular with both locals and guests alike. From lunch till late, the menu offers uncomplicated and good for the soul dishes that are low-mileage, ingredient-led, and seasonal. The bar offers a wide selection of draft beers from local breweries, including its very own Motley Lager, as well as a superb choice of spritzers, wines, and cocktails.
The space also offers a karaoke pod and private dining options – perfect for parties, celebrations, and memorable corporate events. Additional facilities include four creative meeting spaces equipped with all the gadgets and plenty of natural light with doors that offer access to Motley’s terrace and onto Deansgate.
Guests will also find Trib3, a global boutique fitness studio that fuses a next-level HIIT workout with an epic sensory experience. The studio will be accessible to the public with daily complimentary and special offers available for hotel guests.
The newly rebranded YOTEL Manchester Deansgate follows an acquisition by Tristan Capital Partners and Hamilton Hotel Partners, who will also manage the business. The opening of YOTEL Manchester Deansgate marks the fourth UK city centre hotel for YOTEL following openings in Edinburgh, Glasgow and London. The group now has 18 hotels worldwide from San Francisco to New York, Amsterdam to Istanbul and all the way to Singapore. The next YOTEL to open will be YOTEL and YOTELPAD Miami in early 2022, so watch this space…
