Yotel Arrives in Manchester

Global hotel brand YOTEL is bringing its innovative hospitality concept to the city centre of Manchester this month as the brand opens its newest hotel in Deansgate. Renowned for challenging the status quo of the traditional hotel stay, YOTEL Manchester Deansgate will be so much more than just a great night’s sleep, offering an experience perfect for today’s smart, tech savvy travellers.

Rebranding the Qbic hotel on the corner of iconic Deansgate and John Dalton Street, the new YOTEL sits in a top spot for exploring the best of Manchester’s bars, restaurants, culture, shopping and live music venues.

With 261 cabins, each full to the brim with personality and texture, the hotel is ideal for those looking for a boutique stay experience but without the hefty price tag. All equipped with comfy and organic Naturalmat mattresses, large TVs, refreshing rain-showers and free super-fast WiFi, the stylish cabins range in size from 15 –26 sqm with some enjoying fantastic city views.

Keeping true to the brand’s sustainability strategy, the hotel also boasts top-notch green credentials including energy efficient LED lighting which automatically turn off when not needed, solar panels to generate electricity and eco-friendly showers that reduce water usage.

Commenting on the opening, YOTEL CEO Hubert Viriot said: “We’re delighted that Manchester is the location of our newest hotel. Home to world- famous football clubs, Europe’s fastest-growing tech hub and a vibrant economic powerhouse, the city has always been high on our agenda. Manchester resonates perfectly with Generation YO and is a great addition to our other UK hotels in London, Edinburgh and Glasgow.”

The ground floor of the hotel is also home to MOTLEY, a quirky restaurant and bar with outdoor terrace popular with locals and guests alike. From lunch till late, the menu offers uncomplicated and good for the soul dishes that are low-mileage, ingredient-led, homely and seasonal. The bar offers a wide selection of draft beers from local breweries, including its very own MOTLEY Lager, as well as a superb choice of spritzers, wines and cocktails.

The space also offers a karaoke pod and private dining options - perfect for parties, celebrations and memorable corporate events. Additional facilities include four creative meeting spaces equipped with all the gadgets and plenty of natural light with doors that offer access to MOTLEY’s terrace and onto Deansgate.

Guests will also find TRIB3, a global boutique fitness studio that fuses a next-level HIIT workout with an epic sensory experience. The studio will be accessible to the public with daily complimentary and special offers available for hotel guests.

The newly rebranded YOTEL Manchester Deansgate follows an acquisition by Tristan Capital Partners and Hamilton Hotel Partners, who will also manage the business. The opening of YOTEL Manchester Deansgate marks the fourth UK city centre hotel for YOTEL following openings in Edinburgh, Glasgow and London. The group now has 18 hotels worldwide from San Francisco to New York, Amsterdam to Istanbul and all the way to Singapore. The next YOTEL to open will be YOTEL and YOTELPAD Miami in early 2022.

Frank Croston, Partner at Hamilton Hotel Partners said: “Hamilton Hotel Partners is delighted to have partnered with Tristan Capital Partners in the acquisition of the hotel and to be operating YOTEL’s latest addition to its UK portfolio going forward. YOTEL Manchester Deansgate enjoys an excellent location in a market recovering strongly; our team at the hotel are thrilled to see this hotel take the next step with a well-known global brand.”
