Daisy Jackson Daisy Jackson - 21st February 2022

Another new hotel is set to join the fleet at Manchester Airport, with 412 bedrooms over nine storeys at Tribe.

Tribe will be constructed in the heart of Airport City Manchester’s hotel district.

It will join the 280-room Holiday Inn and 262-room Ibis Budget, both of which are due to open this summer.

Tribe will sprawl over 12,300sq metres across nine storeys, with a gym, restaurant and bar, and crew lounge all included in the plans.

The £42m build by MY Construction is expected to be completed by early 2024.

Yoav Tal, managing director of MY Construction said: “We’re delighted to have been awarded this latest contract at Airport City Manchester.

“During the past 16 years we’ve delivered over 2,500 keys of premium hotel developments across the country so it’s great to be working with the Airport City Manchester development team and Accor on building what will be the first TRIBE hotel in the UK.”


Built at the foot of the £6m pedestrian and cycle bridge connecting Airport City with Wythenshawe, TRIBE will be part of a cluster of nine new properties offering more than 2,400 new hotel rooms.

Gareth Jackson, group property managing director at Manchester Airports Group (MAG), said: “Seeing construction commence on our third hotel on-site is another fantastic landmark at Airport City Manchester.


“The hotel district is a key element of the development, providing a crucial amenity cluster between The Hut Group campus, the wider business district, and one of the UK’s busiest airports.

“Bringing TRIBE to site demonstrates our ongoing commitment to catering for those quality and forward-thinking brands looking for the scale, opportunity and connectivity that Airport City Manchester offers occupiers and we’re looking forward the hotel opening in 2024.”

Tribe comes from the Accord Group, which is also behind Mercure, Sofitel and Noveotel.
