Marriott UK is welcoming a new direction for its Manchester Airport hotel, with a multi-million pound refurbishment.

Located less than two miles away from Manchester Airport, the global group’s Hale property is looking to reposition itself as a destination hotel, shifting any perceptions of it as a ‘typical’ airport hotel, to an aspirational setting where people are excited to visit, meet, stay, dine and spa.

The aim is to create a unique destination amongst the hotel’s competitors by upgrading all 215 spacious bedrooms, landscaping outdoor areas, creating a new open plan reception area, modernising its conferencing and social banqueting facilities and offering a completely new business lounge as well as a brand new restaurant.

Comments Rav Khangura, Marriott Airport Hotel Manager;

“Our hotel is more than a necessity stay over for business and leisure travellers – the investment will help us create a totally new experience for our guests.

“The Northwest, and Manchester in particular, is home to a number of fantastic large and boutique hotels, but none of them are able to offer the feeling of space that we can, so close to a global transport hub like Manchester Airport.

“Thanks to our bars, health club and onsite eateries, we offer a range of desirable facilities and this renovation aims to secure our position as the number one hotel in its area. Which other hotel in this area can offer two onsite signature restaurants, with top brands such as San Carlo? We offer businesses, leisure travellers, and the local community a unique experience, in a great location.”

The renovation process is well underway, with all bedrooms now completely refurbished with new furnishings and technology. The completed project will be launched in September 2018.
