Take Five – Premier Inn Manchester

A fifth Premier Inn hotel in Manchester city centre has opened its doors.

The new 157-bedroom hotel at Princess Street to the south of the city centre offers skyline views of the city.  Located within the £750m Circle Square development and constructed above a multi-storey car park, the hotel restaurant is located on the ninth floor with six floors of Premier Inn bedrooms above.

The hotel brings Premier Inn’s latest format bedrooms to the Oxford Road catchment and increases its network in Manchester city centre to more than 960 rooms.

Other Premier Inn properties in the area include:
Manchester City Centre (Portland Street)
Manchester City Centre (Deansgate Locks)
Manchester Central (Bishopsgate)
Manchester City Centre West (Irwell Street, Salford)

Kevin Murray, senior acquisition manager for Whitbread, said: “Manchester is a hugely popular and thriving market for Premier Inn guests travelling for business and leisure. It is also a city where we are seeking to redefine, improve and expand our presence in key destination locations.  The new Princess Street Premier Inn symbolises how we want to grow in the city – by investing in bold and sustainable hotels where we expect to see long-term demand for our style of affordable accommodation.”

A short walk from the Princess Street hotel, Whitbread is proposing to redevelop the site of its Deansgate Locks Premier Inn into a mixed-use development consisting of 370 apartments and high-quality workspace fitting of its gateway location.
