Kimpton Hotels has opened a new boutique hotel in Manchester’s Clocktower building.
The Grade II listed building houses 270 guest bedrooms, a restaurant and bar venue, and 17 meeting rooms.
The property was first opened as The Refuge Assurance Company headquarters in 1890. Today the hotel offers a “homage” to Manchester’s music scene, with vinyl records of the city’s most infamous bands available to play on record players in each room.
The latest Manchester venture joins the Kimpton Fitzroy Hotel in London, Kimpton Blythswood Square Hotel in Glasgow, and Kimpton Charlotte Square Hotel in Edinburgh.
Johan Scheepers, general manager, Kimpton Clocktower Hotel said: “Kimpton Clocktower Hotel is the latest addition to the global Kimpton brand. Each Kimpton hotel is an escape from the ordinary, and Kimpton Clocktower Hotel will offer a real ‘wow’ factor stay with a warm Mancunian welcome.
“Kimpton continues its incredible expansion across the globe with the opening of Kimpton Clocktower Hotel, marking our fourth opening in the UK”.
He added: “The Kimpton brand is rooted in human heartfelt connections and we look forward to welcoming guests and locals in a city world renowned for its warmth, charm, and exuberance.”
