Interstate Hotels & Resorts Debuts IHG’s Hotel Indigo Brand in Manchester, UK
December 12, 2018 3:04pm
Hotel Indigo® Manchester – Victoria Station has opened its doors to guests, marking the brand’s debut in one of the UK’s largest cities. Famous for its cotton mills and its role in the industrial revolution, Manchester is a vibrant city that is rapidly expanding and regenerating, complementing its historical setting.
The boutique hotel is located at the gateway to the Northern Quarter, Manchester’s creative heart, and is adjacent to Exchange Square, the city’s shopping district. Known for its bohemian bars, the Northern Quarter has a lively music scene, and includes bustling independent studios and shops. Guests can enjoy the laidback atmosphere come day and night, with a wide range of places to eat and drink.
Hotel Indigo® Manchester – Victoria Station features 187 stylish guest rooms, with design inspired by Manchester’s rich and colourful history. The exterior of the hotel is a beautifully restored Grade II listed building, featuring an eye-catching contemporary tower, providing fantastic views of the city’s skyline.
The hotel’s three room designs combine Manchester’s industrial past with modern luxury and style. Raw materials feature throughout the hotel, such as bare brick walls in the reception, complemented by iron pulleys and rope connecting to lights which have bespoke weaved baskets as shades.
The bedrooms pay homage to Manchester’s cotton mill heritage by using rich, raw cotton on the bed, contrasting with green velvet, which gives the rooms an added sense of luxury. Drawing from Manchester’s literary and printing past, features also include lamps with books as stands and artwork in the form of metal lettering on the walls along with china pattern motifs which reference Manchester’s love of tea.
The hotel will feature a restaurant and bar, Mamucium, headed by award-winning Mancunian chef Andrew Green. Named after the Roman fort that was the birthplace of modern Manchester, the 120-seat restaurant will serve a menu of classic, locally sourced food, topped off with a Northern spin. The venue’s centrepiece will be a stunning, silestone and brass bar area. There will also be a cosy café, M Café, within the restored building.
Nicholas Northam, Managing Director for the UK at Interstate Hotels & Resorts,commented: “We’re very proud to welcome the Hotel Indigo Manchester – Victoria Station to our growing UK portfolio. It is a truly stunning hotel that I’m sure is going to delight both leisure and business travellers alike.”
James McDevitt, General Manager, Hotel Indigo® Manchester – Victoria Station, commented: “We are truly proud to launch Hotel Indigo® Manchester – Victoria Station. The hotel is situated in a prime location for those visiting Manchester and who wish to see and appreciate the city’s artistic side. Working with local designers, the interiors reflect the creative personality of the area, whilst reinforcing this first-class hotel we have created.”
Inspired by the neighbourhood around each property so just as no places are alike, no two Hotel Indigo® properties are the same. Each Hotel Indigo property features thoughtful design touches and vibrant restaurants and bars connected to the spirit of the local neighbourhood. There are currently 27 Hotel Indigo properties in Europe with another 17 due to open in the next 3-5 years. *
