Motel One has secured a lease agreement with Property Alliance Group to build its next hotel in Manchester.
The hotel group, subject to planning permission, will start work on a new 328-bedroom venue in St Peter’s Square in spring of next year.
The new property will see the group gain a strong foothold on the market in Manchester, with a total of three Motel One hotels due to be operating in the city by the end of 2017.
With one already open in Piccadilly, a second is set to launch in Cross Street in May 2017.
Speaking to Insider, Stefan Lenze, head of development at Motel One, said: “This is a perfect base for our third hotel in Manchester.
“The redevelopment of St Peter’s Square creates one of the most exciting urban spaces right in the heart of the city, so we look forward to working with Alliance to progress the development.”
Lenze added: “Motel One remains committed to its expansion in the UK, and we are actively looking for further sites in London and Edinburgh, as well as other major cities such as Bristol, Birmingham, Liverpool and Leeds.”
The budget hotel brand will be opening eight hotels across Europe in 2017 with more than 3,200 bedrooms.
