The site will occupy a “prime location” in Embankment West and offer 142 apartments, from studios (33.5 SQM) up to three-bedroom apartments (105.8 SQM), each designed to combine the “touches of a hotel with the space, privacy and comfort of home”.
Also, under the roof of CitySuites II will be five penthouses, occupying the top three floors of the aparthotel. The largest of the five suites will be a three-bedroom duplex penthouse that occupies 256sqm of the 16th and 17th floor including a wrap-around balcony with views of Manchester’s skyline.
CitySuites said all apartments are designed to suit both business and leisure stays offering anything from a one-night stay up to a year-long booking.
Long stays will be offered professional housekeeping, 24-hour concierge, laundry and dry-cleaning services, and residents only co-working spaces.
The site also features an 18-metre pool, spa pool, steam room and a gym, as well as community spaces that include The Lounge, an open-plan area overlooking Embankment West courtyard and its in-house brasserie restaurant and bar, Embankment Kitchen.
Gavin Bailey, operations director of CitySuites said: “CitySuites II will be an evolution of CitySuites as you know it in Manchester, everything we already are and more. The perfect combination of comfort and luxury remains at the core of our design and approach, but with additional facilities, community areas and services we are going a step further in being able to really tailor and personalise experiences for each and every one of our guests.
“The Super Suites will offer a hotel experience currently unparalleled in the city. Manchester is the fastest growing city in the UK and the level of hospitality needs to rise alongside this.”
