The Clock Tower, Manchester

Kimpton Hotels is expanding its offer with a new 4* hotel in Manchester, in an emblematic building in the city, under the clock tower.

The brand moved into a historic terracotta building, whose tower and large clock are one of the city's emblems. The new Kimpton hotel is located in the heart of Manchester, close to shops, so it seems fairly easy to get to, since it is a 10-minute walk from Manchester Piccadilly station and opposite Oxford Road station. While undergoing renovations to adapt the spaces to the contemporary style, the establishment has retained elements of Victorian architecture such as carved wooden staircases, glazed bricks, stained glass windows, and double and triple-height ceilings. The Kimpton Clocktower Hotel exudes a typical Manchester atmosphere with the brand's dedicated service.

Johan Scheepers, General Manager of the Kimpton Clocktower Hotel, is very excited about the opening:

Every Kimpton hotel is an escape from the ordinary, and the Kimpton Clocktower Hotel will offer you a true 'wow' stay with a warm Mancunian welcome. ...] The Kimpton brand is rooted in sincere human relationships and we look forward to welcoming guests and residents to a city known worldwide for its warmth, charm and exuberance.

The 259 rooms and 11 suites adopt a loft style and are anchored in the culture of the city with record players and vinyls of famous bands scattered throughout the rooms. This 4* hotel provides guests with yoga mats in the rooms, free boxes of treats, as well as travel essentials based on the service called "Forgot It? We've got it! " with the goal of creating the best possible customer experience.

Kimpton® Hotels & Restaurants embodies the leading international luxury brand of IHG® Hotels & Resorts and is renowned for its food and beverage offerings, so guests will be able to enjoy The Refuge by Volta bar and restaurant in the Winter Garden, a large, bright space in the heart of the hotel. It is here that the Kimpton Clocktower Hotel holds regular events such as the Kimpton Social Hour, every day from 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm, while asking attendees to stay at tables far enough apart from each other as part of the health measures against Covid-19.

And to satisfy its business clients, the hotel has 17 meeting rooms equipped with all the necessary audiovisual equipment, all in Edwardian architecture. Their capacity is up to 1,000 people, making the Kimpton Clocktower Hotel in Manchester the largest hotel ballroom in the North West of England.
