Hotel Football: Owned by former Manchester United stars Ryan Giggs and Gary Neville, the 133-room hotel is set to open in March and aims to provide the ultimate fan experience. The hotel, which looks directly over Old Trafford, Manchester, will house Giggs' and Neville's second Cafe Football, which initially launched in London last year. The hotel will also feature a five-a-side rooftop football pitch, known as 'Heaven', situated on the 12th floor of the hotel. Heaven will have a retractable roof and cater for parties of up to 180 guests. The hotel will also offer a range of affordable and luxury match day hospitality packages and will be home to the Old Trafford Supporters Club, a dedicated social venue for United fans of all ages. 

Hotel Gotham: Bespoke Hotels is currently developing the high-end, five-star boutique Hotel Gotham, with a planned opening date in April. Located in one of the city's listed buildings designed by Edwin Lutyens, the former Midland Bank at 100 King Street is an art deco masterpiece. The 60-room hotel will feature a destination restaurant, prohibition style bar and roof-top members-only club.

King Street Townhouse: Due to open in the summer, the intimate King Street Townhouse is the fifth venue in Eclectic Hotels' portfolio of luxury townhouse hotels and members' lounges in Greater Manchester. The former bank and Grade II-listed building will offer a luxurious experience for guests. Complete with 40 bedrooms and suites, gym and spa treatment rooms, afternoon tea rooms and conferencing and event space for up to 200 people, the hotel will also feature a south facing rooftop infinity spa pool, with views of Albert Square and Manchester Town Hall.
