Marking the brand’s debut in one of the UK’s largest cities, Hotel Indigo Manchester-Victoria Station has opened its doors at the gateway to the Northern Quarter, Manchester’s creative heart, and next to the Exchange Square shopping district.
The property, housed in a restored Grade II listed building, features 187 guestrooms, with design inspired by Manchester history. The exterior features a contemporary tower, providing views of the city’s skyline.
The hotel’s three room designs combine Manchester’s industrial past with modern luxury and style. Raw materials feature throughout the hotel, such as bare brick walls in the reception, complemented by iron pulleys and rope connecting to lights which have bespoke woven baskets as shades.
The bedrooms pay homage to Manchester’s cotton mill heritage by using rich, raw cotton on the bed, contrasting with green velvet to give the space an added sense of luxury.
Drawing from Manchester’s literary and printing past, features also include lamps with books as stands and artwork in the form of metal lettering on the walls along with china pattern motifs which reference Manchester’s love of tea.
There are currently 27 Hotel Indigo properties in Europe, with another 17 due to open in the next three to five years.
