The newly appointed management team has taken part in a topping out ceremony for the first dual-branded hotel under one roof in the north of England, just off Manchester’s Oxford Road.
The new development – known as a ‘double pack’ concept – will feature a 212-room Crowne Plaza and a 116-room Staybridge Suites across 19 storeys under one roof, and will be unveiled to the public in early 2018. Crowne Plaza is spread over 11 storeys from the ground up with the extended stay brand Staybridge Suites on the upper eight floors. Both brands are part of the IHG portfolio.
The 120-cover restaurant in the Crowne Plaza will be accessible to Staybridge Suites guests who also have access to a terrace on the 18th floor, meeting room, fitness room, laundry facilities and complimentary hot and cold buffet breakfast in a hub kitchen.Dual-branded hotel opening on course to open early 2018
