Nicholas Thompson discusses some of the exciting new hotel openings scheduled to hit the city soon:
Manchester City Centre has one of the largest hotel pipelines in Western Europe. With an already wonderful choice available in the city, the numbers are due to shoot up to 15,000 within 3 years time. To put that into context, by same time, the other major population centres in the UK will sleep less. Birmingham and Edinburgh will sleep 12,000 per night, followed by Glasgow with 8,000 rooms and Liverpool with 7,500.
The sector is already booming but the key to a great city is the type of property the city is attracting. There are more rooms coming on line covering both the budget end of the market to the top end and plush hotels.
Tourism is on the up, with more and more flag ship events being hosted by the city. Coupled with the fact that the existing operators are refurbishing their existing stock, means that the future is bright.
