Tulip to bloom at the airport



A 135-bed hotel is to be built at Manchester Airport. Fast-growing international chain Golden Tulip has signed a lease with Manchester Airport Developments for a property near Junction Six of the M56.

The three-star Tulip Inn will have a 140-seater Bibo bar and bistro, with parking for 108 cars. There will also be meeting rooms available as part of Tulip Inn's Simply Meet service.

Golden Tulip will be taking a lease for 25 years. The hotel is due to be open in summer 2007. Architects Leach Rhodes Walker have designed the building.

Advertisement your story continues below
John Atkins, strategy and development director at Manchester Airport Developments, said: "With its striking contemporary design, this will add to the 1,500 bedrooms already serving the airport. Golden Tulip is a complementary international brand for the airport's leisure and business customer, and we look forward to a long relationship."

The new hotel is the first sign of the expansion strategy unveiled by Manchester Airport last month.

The blueprint forecasts the airport will be generating £2.3bn a year for the region's economy by the year 2030. By that time, there could be as many as 50m passengers a year through the terminals.

Capacity

It claims that there is medium and long-term capacity for freight logistics, commercial and industrial development, hotels and airport services.

It also calls for a new planning framework to accommodate growth in airport-related activities and for a relaxation of green belt restrictions preventing development around the airport.

The new hotel is another stage in Golden Tulip's rapid expansion programme. Earlier this year, it announced a £30m programme of openings.

Peter Roberts, chief executive of Golden Tulip UK, said: "The Tulip Inn Manchester Airport will be our first UK airport hotel and the fifth new Tulip Inn site we have announced this year.

"With more than 40 million passengers expected to be using the airport within a decade, and nearly 150 companies already within a 10-minute drive of the site, I am convinced this hotel will prove very popular.

"I hope this deal will help us acquire sites at other UK airports."

Golden Tulip UK operates hotels in Manchester, Glasgow, Newcastle Gateshead, Portsmouth, Leeds and Dublin Airport, and is part of Golden Tulip Hotels, Inns & Resorts, an international hotel group with over 500 properties worldwide.

When the other side of London rd get utilised and the surrounding area finally gets built up, I can imagin the bt building having a similair imposing image as the Metropole hilton.

Lets hope it spreads the love towards Ardwick.

Rio Architects have updated their website with miniature renders of Macdonald's Hotel proposal.

The second render is very interesting.

Terrific find JRB. I'm so pleased that whilst getting some super new buildings, we are improving our best existing buildings and the 'Lazy L' definitely falls into this category!

I was thinking that - extremely interesting (and cooky to boot)

I didn't know there was any space behind the old BT building for this new build with the connecting bridge thing. Any idea what the new build will be? Possibly the hotel entrance and conference etc??

In todays MEN. A very small article tucked away on page two. No images.

£30m hotel planned for trendy district.

A 30m hotel providing 150 full-time jobs is to be built in the fashionable Northern Quarter. The 228-bedroom Crowne Plaza will have the city's largest presidential suite, seven suites, 30 junior suites, 22 club rooms and 168 deluxe rooms. It will also have purpose-built meeting and conference facilities for up to 250 people and dedicated training rooms. The hotel will open in 2008.

I take it the MEN article refers to the Ician proposal?

Nice find KITR. Renders have been thin on the ground of this development (apart from those that accompanied the planning application). Its a Leach Rhodes Walker design I think. This will be a really important building on the corner of Swan St, Great Ancoats Street and Rochdale Road, acting as a gateway to the city centre proper and a boundary to the Northern Quarter. I hope they do justice to its pivotol location in its building quality and finish.

New £30m Crowne Plaza hotel for Manchester
(25 September 2006 10:46)



Manchester is to boost its portfolio of upmarket hotels with the £30m development of the region's second Crowne Plaza.

Managed by Merseyside-based Central Island, the 228-room Crowne Plaza Manchester City Centre will open in July 2008.

It will have seven suites and 168 deluxe rooms, as well as meeting and conference facilities for up to 250 delegates.

Manchester City Council leader Sir Richard Leese said the development marked a major part of the ongoing expansion of the city.

“The quality and diversity of our hotel stock is a reflection of the increasing number of visitors who regard Manchester as a real destination of choice for both business and leisure,” he said.

John Bamsey, UK and Ireland chief operating officer of InterContinental Hotels, which franchises the Crowne Plaza brand, said: “Manchester being the third biggest city in the UK, this fills a significant gap in our distribution. It demonstrates the strength and depth of our UK pipeline as we continue to attract significant investment in our brands.”

The construction of the new hotel is being handled by Ician Developments.

More hotels as boom continues

EXPERTS are predicting that yet more budget hotels will be built in Manchester, as the city's hotel development boom shows no sign of slowing.

The claims come as developers take the wraps off two new city centre hotel plans.

A new 75-bed Sleeperz hotel is to be built on land owned by Network Rail opposite Piccadilly station.

Network Rail's commercial property department has negotiated a 99-year lease to hotel chain Sleeperz Manchester Ltd, which has been granted planning permission for the 75-bedroom hotel opposite the Fairfield Street entrance to the station.

The hotel will sit on a wedge of land between the station and the railway viaduct, and rise six floors above the ground floor.

The design is unquestionably modern and the façade will be a mix of metal and glass.

John Pike, Network Rail's Director, Commercial Property said: "We are continually striving to maximise value from our property portfolio and we are delighted to be working with Sleeperz in identifying suitable sites for this new chain of `glorious' railway hotels."

Operating in what is now called the "limited service" sector of the hotel market - until recently known as the budget sector - the Sleeperz management team believes there is an opportunity to develop a niche hotel product.

Total investment in the hotel will exceed £4.5m and work is due to start on the site in September, 2006, so that it can open in late 2007.

Last week AMEC Developments and Crosby Homes plc announced a new £27m scheme which will see the construction of a Crowne Plaza hotel in the successful mixed-use scheme Smithfield.

Suite

The 140,000 sq ft development has been purchased by the Shudehill Hotel Company, a joint venture between First House and North West based hotel operator Centre Island. The four-star deluxe hotel, due to open in July 2008, will incorporate 228 luxury bedrooms, including the city's largest presidential suite.

Research by business consultants PKF shows that Manchester is one of the most profitable places in the UK to open a hotel.

Income from hotel rooms in the city is growing, with the return on investment rising at 6 per cent a year. This compares well with locations such as Leeds and Birmingham, where yields are either growing more slowly or falling fast.

Jennifer Viloria, head of research at PKF, says that Manchester is sure to see more budget hotel development.

"There's still sufficient demand - Manchester is one of the top 20 European business locations, and the attraction isn't just from the business side, but from the tourist side, too.

"The question is more about supply: is it the right kind?"

"The supply of four-star-plus accommodation was poor until recently, but the arrivals of the Radisson and of the new Hilton Deansgate have moved the market on, and we should now expect more development in the limited service or budget sector."

"Occupancy rates for the city's hotel beds have remained flat over the past year - about 76 per cent in the year to July, 2006, which is almost identical to the previous year.

"But this is a good sign, bearing in mind the new supply of hotel rooms which has become available during that year.

"It's a tribute to the strength of demand that the city can absorb new hotel beds without sending occupancy rates down," she says.

One of the fastest growing areas of the hotel scene is around Manchester Airport.

Earlier this summer fast-growing international chain Golden Tulip signed a lease with Manchester Airport Developments for a property near junction six of the M56.

The three-star Tulip Inn will be open in summer, 2007.

Nite Nite has a target to open 35 hotels by 2012. They are currently looking at 4 sites - 2 in Manchester and 2 in London.
www.nitenite.com

Could be all talk but they do have one hotel at the moment with great rates for a nice room.

Wrappings starting to come off the "Manchester Macdonald hotel" - nice clean lines - quite optimistic about the outcome of this development - you don't realise the scale of it untill you see it close up - it's absolutely massive ! The adervtising banner states opening autumn 2007

Macdonald have now submitted plans for the whole of the building to be converted to 4* hotel use (338 bedrooms) rather than the previous two applications which proposed a mixed hotel / office use. I would have liked to have seen a mix of uses being maintained.

http://www.publicaccess.manchester.g...FO%2f2006%2fC2


Still quite amazing to think that this grubby and uninspring entrance to the city will soon host a pretty prestigeous 4* hotel.
