Daisy Jackson Daisy Jackson - 19th January 2022

A new aparthotel is opening in Manchester city centre, with enormous penthouse ‘super suites’.

The new luxury development from CitySuites has opened just next door to its first, at Embankment West.

The brand new building contains 142 apartments ranging from compact studios to three-bedroom giants, right on the border of Manchester city centre and Salford.

Its facilities include an 18-metre swimming pool, spa pool, steam room and state-of-the-art 24-hour gym.

Every single room has been designed to blend ‘the luxury touches of a hotel with the space, privacy and comfort of home’.


Guests will sleep on Mattison beds and make use of bespoke bathrooms, as well as having access to their own fully-fitted kitchen (with washing machine, dishwasher, oven, Nespresso coffee machine and fridge-freezer), ultrafast broadband, and GHD hairdryers.

CitySuites II‘s crowning glory is its five high-end penthouse apartments, which have views of the nearby Manchester Cathedral and city skyline.

The largest of the penthouses spans 265 sq metres across the 16th and 17th floor of the building, and comes with a wrap-around balcony overlooking the city.

All of them have floor-to-ceiling windows, SieMatic kitchens, BORA ovens, Lutron electric blinds, home theatre systems and walk-in steam shower rooms.

The CitySuites II apartments can be booked for anything from a one-night stay up to a year-long visit.


There’s a 24-hour concierge on site, laundry and dry-cleaning services, and residents-only co-working spaces.

The arrival of the new aparthotel also comes with new food offerings for the city.

Both its in-house brasserie and bar Embankment Kitchen and its coffee shop the Embankment Cafe are open for business.

Gavin Bailey, operations director of CitySuites, said: “CitySuites II is an evolvement of CitySuites as you know it in Manchester, everything we already are and more.

“The perfect combination of comfort and luxury remains at the core of our design and approach, but with additional facilities, community areas and services we are going a step further in being able to really tailor and personalise experiences for each and every one of our guests.

“The Super Suites will offer a hotel experience currently unparalleled in the city.

“Manchester is the fasting growing city in the UK and the level of hospitality needs to rise alongside this.

“For guests who want beautiful accommodation that is spacious, high-quality yet functional, with all the amenities and services of a 5-star hotel at hand if required, then CitySuites II will be the place for you.”
