Radisson Hotel Group welcomes The Edwardian Manchester as its third in the UK and second Radisson Collection property in England
Today, Edwardian Hotels London, one of the UK’s largest privately-owned hotel groups, and Radisson Hotel Group, have announced that following a multi-million-pound renovation, the Manchester property is relaunching as The Edwardian Manchester, A Radisson Collection Hotel.
The hotel is the third in the UK to join Radisson Collection, a unique compilation of Radisson Hotel Group’s most exceptional premium lifestyle properties, set in prestigious locations.
Known for its heritage and first-class service, The Edwardian Manchester, encompassing Manchester’s iconic Grade II* listed Free Trade Hall, reflects the energy, confidence and progressive spirit of the city's neighbourhood.
The Free Trade Hall has played an integral role in the UK’s history, and has long been an important spot for those visiting and living in the city. From the political; the Free Trade Hall was constructed in 1853–56 on St Peter’s Fields, the site of the Peterloo Massacre, to the cultural; a range of iconic names have either performed or spoken at the property, from Charles Dickens and Winston Churchill to the Sex Pistols - and the hotel embodies a sense of community and union.
Jasminder Singh OBE, Chairman and CEO of Edwardian Hotels London, said, “This is a substantial milestone for Edwardian Hotels London and for Manchester, with the property being recognised as our second Radisson Collection hotel. It is testament to the team’s world-class service and Manchester’s significant role in the UK’s business and hospitality sectors. The Edwardian Manchester joins The May Fair Hotel as a Radisson Collection property, further cementing our long-standing strategic partnership with Radisson Hotel Group.”
Federico J. González-Tejera, President & CEO of Radisson Hospitality AB, said“Expanding the Radisson Collection brand in the UK is a great achievement. The ambition of Radisson Collection is to offer our guests iconic hotels around the world that provide an exceptional experience, while reflecting the individual character of each location. The historic and cultural significance of The Edwardian Manchester makes it the ideal addition to the collection, and celebrates our successful partnership with Edwardian Hotels London.”
Radisson Collection celebrates each member hotel having a different look and feel, whilst delivering to the highest standards. The 263-key hotel combines modern design influence with the classic heritage of the Free Trade Hall. The renovation has covered the entire ground and lower-ground floors - from grand entrance lobby and concept bar and restaurants to the awe-inspiring spa and fitness centre, as well as extending throughout the guest bedrooms and suites plus quality meeting spaces.
Guests have access to the hotels urban refuge, The Spa and Gym at The Edwardian Manchester. Defined by its sweeping, uninterrupted floor plan, guests are connected between each space, but the sensation is one of privacy throughout the state-of-the-art gym, urban subterranean swimming pool, tranquil sauna, steam rooms and atmospheric treatment areas.
