Accor has inked a deal to open the first Tribe hotel at Manchester Airport in 2022.
In a partnership with H3 Hotels S.à.r.l, the 412-bedroom hotel will be the first Tribe hotel in England and second in the UK, joining Tribe in Glasgow which launched in Q3 2019.
The nine-storey hotel will also feature four restaurant and bar areas, working spaces, a gym and a crew lounge for airline staff travelling through Manchester.
Construction of the new-build hotel, for which planning permission has recently been granted is scheduled for later this year (subject to Covid 19 considerations), with the development expected to take two years to complete.
Thomas Dubaere, COO Accor Northern Europe, said: “The UK remains a priority long-term global market for development, investment, travel, business and tourism and this development reflects that. The signing of our second Tribe extends our lifestyle brand pipeline in the UK and offers greater opportunities for guests to experience the exceptional service and design culture that Accor offers.”
The new hotel is being brought to life by Dexter Moren Associates.
Tribe, which first launched in Perth, Australia by founders Mark and Melissa Peters, plans to open more than 150 properties worldwide over the next five years, including new locations in cities like Amsterdam, Dubai, Hong Kong, New York and London.
Tribe joins the likes of Mama Shelter, JO&JOE, greet and 25 Hours as part of Accor’s lifestyle portfolio.
