As we reported back in September, Hyatt is opening two hotels in Manchester next year.
These are NOT new hotels. They are rebrandings of the brand new Crowne Plaza Manchester Oxford Road and the brand new Staybridge Suites.
The Crowne Plaza Manchester Oxford Road, which we reviewed here, will become a 212-room Hyatt Regency hotel. Staybridge Suites Manchester Oxford Road, which we reviewed here, will become a 116-room Hyatt House extended stay property.
The hotels are located in the University Quarter, a 10-minute walk from the city centre and close to Manchester Oxford Road station. Hyatt’s presence outside London is currently woeful, if you exclude the ‘Small Luxury Hotels’ affiliates, with their only hotel being the Hyatt Regency in Birmingham. This is a welcome expansion.
Both hotels are now showing on hyatt.com for bookings from Friday 10th January. This is a surprisingly quick turnaround – just four months from the announcement – which implies that relations between the owners and IHG have broken down badly or that both parties have agreed that Manchester simply has too many upper scale IHG hotels these days.
