Radisson Blu Hotel, Manchester Airport

Work has begun to radically transform the Radisson Blu Hotel, Manchester Airport.  The hotel, which originally opened in 1998, will be fully refurbished over three phases, with the first phase and the largest, already well under way.  The large-scale project will touch all core elements of the property over the next two years.  The hotel is part of the airport terminal complex, situated between T2 and the railway station and featuring a covered moving walkway.
This year, as part of the phase one works; the hotel’s reception and lobby area, restaurant and bar, 120 Business Class bedrooms and suites, and the airport’s largest functions and events area – including all 27 meeting rooms – will be completed.  Additionally, the existing Observatory Suite, overlooking the apron will be transformed into a Business Class lounge, complete with private reception and dedicated check-in facility for Business Class guests.
The hotel’s all-day dining restaurant is being doubled in size with three unique zones, creating the ideal space for social, private or individual dining, and boasting panoramic airport views. 
Phase two of the programme covers an additional 120 guest bedrooms and will be finished in early 2014, with the remaining 120 bedrooms covered in phase three in 2015 – when the project will be completed. www.radissonblu.co.uk
