Crowne Plaza Manchester Airport: Hotel reopens after £8million refurbishment

The Crowne Plaza at Manchester Airport has reopened.

The Crowne Plaza hotel at Manchester Airport has reopened following an £8 million refurbishment. 

Some of the improvements include the new open lobby, new bar and a multi-faceted area with a wide range of seating for working, socialising and relaxing. The all-day lounge bar open from 10am. There is also a 24-hour Fitness Centre and eight meeting rooms with a dedicated on-site coordinator.

The new rooms include Egyptian cotton sheets, large flatscreen TVs, highspeed WiFi, bathtubs and double glazed windows for noise reduction. 

The hotel is located within each reach of all three Manchester Airport terminals. Terminal 2, where you will also find the Airport train station, is only a 10 minute walk away. It’s only a 20-minute journey by train to the city centre and the M56 motorway is also close by. There is also a competitive Park, Stay and Fly scheme at the hotel, with 320 parking spaces available. 

There are more improvements to come at the Crowne Plaza. Plans will be revealed in the upcoming months, but they will include a Club Lounge extension, improved guest facilities as well as a stand-alone restaurant.

Matt Byram, General Manager for the Crowne Plaza Manchester Airport Hotel commented: “I’m proud and delighted to welcome guests back to the hotel and to introduce our new and improved facilities after this mega refurbishment. So far the response has been phenomenal and what’s really exciting is that there is even more to come with a new Club Lounge and stand-alone restaurant on the way soon.

“Our travel and business guests will find everything they need here, in between their wider journeys and adventures, whether that is to plug in and catch up or completely relax and switch off. The new facilities will also appeal to Manchester airport and business locals as well as networking groups as a great place to meet and connect.”

 Simon Teasdale, Chief Executive Officer for LGH Hotels Management Ltd, added: “We are incredibly pleased with the first phase refurbishment and re-opening of the Crowne Plaza Manchester Airport Hotel. We have invested greatly to ensure the high quality, industry-leading modern facilities and longevity of this important property so that it stands out as a lasting jewel in the competitive airport hotel market.

“This investment is also part of a wider local picture with the ongoing MAGs (Manchester Airport Group) multi-billion pound Manchester Airport Transformation project, including the massive upgrade of Manchester Airport’s Terminal 2. This 10 year project will bring significant jobs, economic value and business to the area, of which the refurbished Crowne Plaza Manchester Airport Hotel will play a necessary supporting role. The ambitious and well-executed first phase has paved the way for a promising second wave and I’m confident we’ll continue to achieve great success in 2024 and beyond.”
