Radisson Blu Hotel, Manchester Airport, is not your standard airport hotel…Whilst it’s certainly close to the runway, the hotel offers much more than proximity to a gateway with the world. With two floors of dedicated event and function spaces, planning a meeting or event at this hotel is hassle free. Learn why below!
From the plane to the meeting room
Thanks to its closeness to the airport, the Radisson Blu Hotel, Manchester Airport is well-positioned to attract delegates from just about anywhere in the world. Its links to the motorway network also makes it easy to reach for those travelling by car, with guests able to take advantage of the on-site car park. For those travelling by public transport, the airport's transport hub is also connected to the hotel directly.
Construction is currently underway to create the first airport city in the UK directly adjacent to Manchester Airport. Around 465,000sqm of offices, logistics, hotels and advanced manufacturing space will be built over the next 10-15 years, with a total development value of £1 billion, making the area an even more attractive place in which to do business now and well into the future.
The hotel's leisure facilities provide a place for guests to relax and unwind ahead of meetings or at the end of a busy day. Delegates can book into the Beauty Lounge which has an extensive list of treatments for both men and women, or make use of the health club with its 12-metre swimming pool, gym, sauna and steam room.
When it comes to simply grabbing a bite to eat, the laid-back Little M bar serves a menu of sharing platters, light snacks and pizzas, while the contemporary Collage Restaurant offers a creative interpretation of the classic British brasserie.
For those looking to venture further, Manchester city centre and all its bars, restaurants, shops and attractions is less than 10 miles from the hotel, and easily reached by train via the Skywalk. At the end of the night, guests can bed down in one of the 360 modern bedrooms or suites.
A treasure trove for meetings & events at Manchester Airport
There are 27 modern rooms spanning 1,700sqm to choose from each with individual climate control, built-in AV equipment and free high-speed Wi-Fi. Spaces are bright and airy and the brightly decorated Brainbox room has been designed to inspire creative thinking . Two business class meeting rooms on the 9th floor offer a more traditional setting, with panoramic views.
The jewel in the crown and the largest of all the spaces is the Manchester Suite. Recently refurbished, the room can hold up to 400 guests for a reception, making it one of the biggest in the area and a popular choice for charity balls, gala dinners and conferences. It is complemented by a series of smaller suites accommodating between 22 and 120 people.
For something a bit different, the hotel's dramatic glass lobby can double up as an event space. It has been known to accommodate vehicles, feature circus acts suspended from the ceiling and bagpipers piping from the imperial staircase! Imagine the possibilities…
And getting to the Radisson Blu Hotel, Manchester Airport is a breeze, thanks to its easy-to-reach location and speedy Skylink from the airport, and with 360 modern, comfortable bedrooms on-site there is plenty of space to accommodate residential events.
