Manchester Airport hotel

In spite of severe disruptions caused by COVID-19 life still goes on.  Plans for a new 412-bedroom hotel near Manchester Airport have been approved by the city council.

The nine-storey hotel on Chicago Avenue will be run by Tribe under the umbrella of Accor, whose other brands include Mercure, Sofitel and Novotel.

The new 12,300m2 development will become the first Tribe hotel in England, the second in the UK after Glasgow, and will feature 412 rooms and suites.

The Tribe brand aims to surprise travellers with an “original, exciting and carefully curated offer that focuses on style rather than price.”

The property will feature four restaurant and bar areas, working spaces, a gym and a crew lounge for airline staff travelling through Manchester, the UK’s third largest airport.

Construction of the new-build hotel is planned to start later this year with the development expected to take two years to complete.

Thomas Dubaere, COO Accor Northern Europe, said: “The UK remains a priority long-term global market for development, investment, travel, business and tourism and this development reflects that.”

The 0.42-acre site set to be used for the Tribe hotel is currently a car park. It falls within the Manchester Airport Operational Area, the Manchester Airport Strategic Site and the Greater Manchester Enterprise Zone.
