The five-star hotel, known for its 1930s banking theme and Art Deco architecture, will become part of the Leonardo Limited Edition collection. This acquisition was supported by the Fattal Partnership Fund through Leonardo’s parent company, Fattal Hotel Group.

Located in the Midland Bank building designed by Edwin Lutyens, Hotel Gotham opened in 2015 under Bespoke Hotels. It features 60 bedrooms, five suites, a two-AA-rosette restaurant, and a rooftop private bar and members’ club.

 “We are delighted to welcome the Hotel Gotham in Manchester to the Leonardo Hotels portfolio. This property aligns perfectly with our vision to provide exceptional guest experiences. “This acquisition further strengthens our presence in key city centre destinations and underscores our dedication to delivering unparalleled service and quality to our guests.” - Jason Curruthers, managing director of Leonardo Hotels UK and Ireland

Despite the change in ownership, the hotel's theme and level of service will remain unchanged, though the "Hotel Gotham" name will only be used for a limited period under the new ownership.

“The acquisition of the Hotel Gotham is a significant milestone in our growth strategy, reinforcing our commitment to becoming one of the fastest-growing hotel groups in Europe. “This addition enhances our portfolio with an iconic hotel destination, further supporting our ambitious plans. We continue to source similar high-end hotel opportunities across the UK and Ireland and the rest of Europe, which is brimming with investment potential” . - Ronen Nissenbaum, CEO Leonardo Hotels UK, Ireland, Benelux, Spain, Portugal and US Development

Leonardo Hotels, which operates 54 hotels across the UK and Ireland, has been expanding its luxury offerings in recent years. Other notable acquisitions include The Midland Hotel in Manchester, The Dilly in London, and The Grand in Brighton.
