Hotel Indigo Manchester embraces a fusion of two very different types of building – the historic existing Grade II listed City Buildings connected at each level to the new build 14 storey extension. The interior design sought to connect these two buildings by neither being traditional nor contemporary and there is a seamless flow between them.

Drawing inspiration from Manchester’s Victorian and Industrial past the Hotel is indigenous to the local area so guests are well aware that they are staying at the gateway to the Northern Quarter.

The entrance reception is a stunning open atrium space filled with natural light. Bespoke lighting highlights the restored Victorian brickwork and interior details within the atrium to create an impact for guests upon arrival.

The guestrooms pay homage to Manchester’s past; Manchester’s cotton mill heritage is referenced in The Arkwright Rooms, The Press Rooms draw from Manchester’s literary and printing past and The Tea House Rooms celebrates the local areas numerous tea merchants which populated the city.

Mamucium, 120-cover restaurant and bar operated by award-winning chef Andrew Green, sits within the new building so seeks to combine the traditional materials of the old building and fusing it with the modern architecture of the interior.
