A duo of highly experienced hoteliers has been appointed to lead the opening of the highly anticipated new Hampton by Hilton Manchester Northern Quarter. Louise O’Reilly has taken up the post of general manager, whilst Ashley Wykes has stepped into the role of director of sales to prepare the new property for opening later this year.
Louise said: “The hotel will be a fantastic addition to what is a truly thriving area of the city, and I’m looking forward to seeing what the journey ahead holds. I’m fully focused on building the strongest possible team, ready to offer our guests a first-class service, including the brand’s signature ‘Hamptonality’ which will see us become fully integrated into the community that surrounds the hotel.”
Ashley added: “As well as being positioned in the bustling and bohemian Northern Quarter, the hotel is a stone’s throw from the Manchester Arena and Manchester Victoria Station, with the Etihad Stadium and Arndale Shopping Centre close by too. We’re perfectly placed for gig-goers, corporate visitors or those just looking for a great city break in the heart of Manchester.”
The property is operated by RBH, the UK’s leading independent hotel management company. The hotel will boast 221 bedrooms, meeting facilities and fitness centre in close proximity to some of Greater Manchester’s key attractions.
