155 more hotel rooms for the city.

Daisy Jackson Daisy Jackson - 28th March 2023

A stylish new aparthotel is opening in Manchester city centre, with new images released of the Residence Inn by Marriott Manchester Piccadilly.

With 155 modern studios and one-bedroom apartments sprawled over 12 floors, it promises to be ‘the first aparthotel of its kind in Northern England’.

The pet-friendly rooms come with perks like well-equipped kitchens, smart TVs, and views of the city skyline.

Set to open in May, the new longer-stay hotel will be located on Laystall Street, between Piccadilly Station, Ancoats, and the Northern Quarter.

The Residence Inn by Marriott will be Marriott International’s first extended stay property in the north of England, but the fifth Residence Inn property in the UK (the others being in London and Scotland).


There’ll be a mix of sleek and spacious studios and one-bedroom suites, 25 of which will offer baths. More than half the rooms will have sofa beds, designed for younger visitors or groups.

The rooms and communal areas will be decorated in warm, neutral tones and come with a fully functional kitchen, including microwaves, single ovens, two-ring hobs, refrigerators and dishwashers, and cookware. They also all have Smart-TVs.


Self-service communal laundry facilities are available on site and open at all times, with other communal areas including lounge areas, outdoor seating areas, and a coffee shop with a grab-and-go section.

When it comes to food, you can start your day with a delicious complimentary breakfast or make use of their bespoke grocery delivery service.

Residence Inn by Marriott will have a 24-hour fitness centre, with high-spec cardio, resistance and free weight areas.


Two retail spaces have been incorporated into the building’s design, which are independently accessible from the hotel and are available to let.
