Why to choose Manchester…..

Marketing Manchester quotes 10 good reasons to choose its city as a meeting destination. The top 5 include, global accessibility, outstanding value, high quality flexible venues, a wealth of entertainment and leisure options and over 13,500 bedrooms. This year there are a few more reasons to choose Manchester with the opening or re-branding of some exciting new venues.

The 189 bedroom Brooklyn Hotel, part of Bespoke hotels, centrally located on Portland Street opens in February. It seeks to combine inspiration from the New York borough from which it takes its name with the similarities to Manchester with its industrial heritage and strong cultural identity. Together with its contemporary design, it is positioning itself as a champion for accessibility for all. Motionsport has overseen the design of 18 bedrooms and included basins with integrated hand grips, removable matt black grab rails, accessible storage and a hidden ceiling track hoist. The hotel offers the Runyon’s restaurant and bar which will serve American and European dishes and also the event bar Brooklyn Heights on the top floor which can accommodate up to 220 guests.

Elsewhere in Manchester the Principal Hotel has recently re-branded as the Kimpton Clocktower. This is IHG’s boutique style hotel, promising a unique experience customised to you with first class customer service. Not far away in Peter Street, Forty Seven hotel is planned to open towards the end of the year, by Asha and Kim. Asha Bhosle, the Bollywood singing sensation already has a successful restaurant on the site.
