One of Conde Nast Traveller’s ‘Top 30 Hotels in the UK’, and named one of the ‘Top British Hotels for 2020’ by The Sunday Times, Hotel Brooklyn is back, proud to be the nation’s most accessible hotel, arms open to welcome those of us missing the buzz of the UK’s great northern metropolis which is gearing up for a summer of events including August’s world-famous Pride Festival.
General Manager Paul Bayliss says: “We are a brand new property so we already have lots of features designed to allow for an environment where personal space is key, including a self-check-in facility, nearly 200 brand new and immaculately clean bedrooms and staff fully-trained in the highest standards. We have large restaurant and banqueting spaces, several separate kitchens and four lifts, allowing us to plan for continued social distancing. I am delighted to celebrate the hospitality industry getting back on its feet and look forward to welcoming visitors to Manchester’s little piece of the Big Apple’.
Designed by Squid Inc, the 189-room hotel pays homage to Brooklyn’s history from early 20th century and – crucially - is a pioneer in accessible design – leading the way in Europe with its adaptability features: a trailblazer in accessible, sexy and modern design for all.
