Andy Cosslett, CEO of InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), returned to his home town of Manchester to open the new Holiday Inn Manchester MediaCityUK.
The 218-room property is in the heart of MediaCityUK in Salford Quays. The hotel has good transport links. It is a 20-minute drive from Manchester Airport and has a tram station nearby. Three meeting rooms are provided and guests can choose to dine in The Green Room Restaurant which serves British food, or the Hub Bar for a light meal.
From 2011, the BBC is relocating more than 2,300 staff to MediaCityUK. BBC Breakfast, Radio 5 Live, Children's Sport, Learning, and Future Media and Technology will move from London to MediaCityUK in addition to all the BBC's existing Manchester operations.
The MediaCityUK development is on a 36 acres site (roughly the size of 18 football pitches) and includes office space, a state-of-the art studio building, shops, restaurants, apartments, a five-acre public piazza, and the Holiday Inn. www.mediacityuk.co.uk
