Manchester’s newest luxury accommodation, Hotel Brooklyn, opened on 14 February 2020, only to close a few weeks later due to the pandemic. It must have set an unwelcome record for a hotel opening and closing.
The good news is that the property is now accepting guests again.
In its brief life it achieved much, highlighted as one of Conde Nast Traveller’s ‘Top 30 Hotels in the UK’, and named in the ‘Top British Hotels for 2020’ listing by The Sunday Times.
With 189 rooms it is best described as “different”, each inspired by Brooklyn’s loft spaces with the addition of special features emphasising quality and high-spec finishes. Beds have brass adornments, while Turkish rugs contrast with the concrete floors.
Hotel Brooklyn’s bar and restaurant, named Runyon’s after Damon Runyon, the American writer renowned for his depictions of Brooklyn characters, will present a diverse menu showcasing European and American influences.
On the top floor of the hotel, Salvation is a dedicated events bar, featuring exposed brickwork, pop art and neon lights to create a lively destination space for what general manager Paul Bayliss calls the UK’s pre-eminent Northern city.
