Travelodge chief executive Peter Gowers has today opened a new flagship property for the brand in Manchester’s Piccadilly Gardens. 

The 157-room hotel represents an £11m investment for the budget hotel chain, bringing its portfolio to 16 hotels in Greater Manchester and 513 in total. 

“The city of Manchester is a vital hub for business and tourism, actively supported by the focus of the local authorities on developing infrastructure and cultural attractions to foster growth,” said Gowers. 

“This new hotel, together with our ongoing refurbishment and modernisation programme, positions us well in the city as the economy continues to strengthen.”

Manchester Piccadilly Travelodge is one of 15 new hotels that the brand will open this year, as part of a £100 million programme into extending the chain. The hotel incorporates Travelodge’s new room design - which includes a new blue and red theming, new bathrooms and king-sized ‘Travelodge Dreamer’ beds.
