UK: The Lume, a dual-branded Staybridge Suites and Crowne Plaza on Manchester’s Oxford Road will open next month.

The 19-storey, 328-key hotel development is owned by M&L Hospitality and managed by Cycas Hospitality.

The extended-stay brand Staybridge Suites, which is making its Manchester debut, is located on the upper seven floors, and will have a mix of 116 studio and one-bedroom suites featuring fully-equipped kitchens and exceptional views of the city. Staybridge Suites guests also have access to a terrace on the 18th floor with panoramic views of Manchester, access to the 24-hour gym, laundry facilities and complimentary hot and cold buffet breakfast in the "Hub" kitchen.

Crowne Plaza Manchester - Oxford Road, which occupies the lower 12-storeys, features 212 guest rooms, a 120-seat restaurant, bar, fully equipped 24-hour gym, club lounge and seven state-of-the-art meeting rooms catering for over 200 delegates.

General manager Andrew Fletcher said: "With the opening date just weeks away, we're really excited about how combining two hotels under one roof will give business as well as leisure travellers a new way to experience Manchester."

"As the way people travel evolves, we wanted to give guests the more flexible accommodation options we know they're looking for, whether they're staying for a few nights or a few weeks. The Lume will, for the first-time, offer travellers to the north of England the choice of two different hotel styles in one central location. We're therefore looking forward to combining personalised home-from-home touches with an on-site restaurant, buzzing bar and extensive meeting facilities in a way that visitors to Manchester haven't had before," he added.

The name The Lume was chosen to celebrate the light-filled illuminated hotel and as a nod to the textile loom - an innovation that helped shape Manchester's past.
