Having just been named the third best city in the world by Time Out – beaten only by Amsterdam and San Francisco, and surpassing London in 13th place – Manchester is flying high at present and its hospitality industry is no different, with a wealth of hotel developments on the boards from Deansgate to Piccadilly.

Tophotelprojects currently has 25 projects, totalling 4,652 rooms, listed in its database in planning or under construction. According to the data service, one of those will open this year, 16 are slated for 2022, two will arrive in 2023, and another two in 2024. There’s also four projects still TBA, including a debut Soho House.

Amongst the properties in the pipeline are the conversion and extension of the city’s Grade II* Listed London Road Fire Station building by The Zetter Group, which will mark its first outpost beyond the British capital, as well as a 412-key newbuild by Accor’s Tribe brand that forms part of the £1 billion Airport City development.

Featured below are just a few of the key developments in progress in the Cottonopolis as it looks to continue its burgeoning growth.
