Motel One

Motel One is a German budget hotel chain with over 60 hotels across seven European countries. Goddard Consulting were appointed to the Manchester Motel One project, which involved the demolition of an existing hotel and nightclub and replacement with a new 330-room hotel. The scheme was designed by award-winning architects Hodder & Partners and is set over part-8 and part-14 floors.

Special care was taken to avoid distribution to the immediately adjacent occupied buildings and the tram operators, whose line runs directly in front of the building. Despite these issues, the hotel was completed four months earlier than originally planned.

The new Motel One was listed on The Sunday Times Top 100 list, one of only two Manchester City Centre hotels to feature.
