Following the success of its existing aparthotel on Princess Street, Roomzzz has recently opened its doors in the Manchester Corn Exchange.
The new renovation project, which has taken three years, offers 114 luxury apartments each individually designed to provide a comfortable, well-planned living area and featuring a fully-equipped kitchen, ideal for longer stays.
The new hotel joins the 14 restaurants which have moved into the iconic Corn Exchange building over the last few years, establishing it as one of the city’s most sought-after dining and city break destinations.
According to recent numbers provided by Marketing Manchester, Greater Manchester’s tourism sector is worth £7.9bn and supports 94,000 jobs. The city welcomes 119 million visitors every year – 11 million that stay and 109 million-day visitors.
“Building on the brand’s success in the thriving city of Manchester, Roomzzz is delighted to be launching its second Manchester aparthotel in the iconic Corn Exchange,” said Naveen Ahmed, CEO of Roomzzz.
“The excellent location and vibrant food and drink offering make it the perfect venue for guests looking to enjoy the variety of restaurants, shops and entertainment the city has to offer, as well as our welcoming and exceptional service.
“Thanks to its central location and great transport links, it caters for all guests, from city explorers to corporate travellers, who can expect the home comforts and customer service they’re used to from the Roomzzz brand, allowing them to feel right at home in the heart of Manchester. We look forward to welcoming guests.”
A spacious gym is a motivating space for the more health-conscious to get their fitness fix, while the attention to detail – from plentiful sockets and two laundry rooms to hairdryers and toiletries – will please guests looking for home comforts.
Each apartment also has a separate living area with comfy seats and a flat screen TV as well as fast, reliable W-Fi. A Grab & Go complimentary breakfast selection of fresh pastries, muffins, fruit and hot and cold drinks is available from reception every morning.
The aparthotel is a striking space, with quality furnishings, high ceilings, original features and unique finishing touches. Roomzzz has partnered with artist Katie Edwards and commissioned one-of-a kind artwork pieces to complement the outstanding design of the interiors.
Kate’s pieces highlight not only what the aparthotel has to offer, but also draw from the city’s vibrant culture and history, inspired by and featuring prominent landmarks.
The opening marks the eighth aparthotel in the Roomzzz portfolio, which has grown to include aparthotels across the North of England in Leeds, Chester, Nottingham, Manchester and Newcastle.
Roomzzz has ambitious growth plans with further developments in the pipeline for Edinburgh, Harrogate, Liverpool and York, as well as an extension to the existing Newcastle property and the brand’s first aparthotel in the South of England opening in Stratford this summer.
