Tribe Hotel to open at Manchester Airport
Accor, the leading augmented hospitality group, today announced the signing of a Tribe hotel at Manchester Airport, in partnership with H3 Hotels S.à.r.l.
For Accor, the UK remains a priority long-term global market for development and investment for travel, business and tourism and this development reflects that.
The new 12,300 m2 development will become the first Tribe hotel in England – and second in the UK, the first (soon-to-open) Tribe will be in Glasgow – and will feature 412 rooms and suites.
The Tribe brand aims to surprise travellers with an original, exciting and carefully curated offer that focuses on style rather than price, making it a leader in the design-led affordable luxury sector.
The nine-storey hotel will feature four restaurant and bar areas, working spaces, a gym and a crew lounge for airline staff travelling through Manchester, the UK’s third largest airport.
Construction of the new-build hotel, for which planning permission has recently been granted is scheduled for later this year (subject to Covid 19 considerations), with the development expected to take two years to complete.
The brand has a distinct design-led approach, appealing to guests by combining the laid back feeling of a trendy urban hub, creative workspaces and the relaxation of home, serving both travellers and the local community.
Tribe, which first launched in Perth, Australia thanks to the vision of founders Mark and Melissa Peters, plans to open more than 150 properties worldwide over the next five years, including new locations in leading cities like Amsterdam, Dubai, Hong Kong, New York and London.

Dexter Moren, Partner at specialist hospitality architects Dexter Moren Associates added: “We are delighted to be working with H3 Hotels S.à.r.l., Accor and MAG Property to deliver a landmark building establishing a new gateway to Manchester airport.
“The design for TRIBE Manchester aims to give the hotel a distinct urban identity within the Manchester Airport City masterplan, bringing a youthful energy with bold colour, contemporary architecture and materials.”
Commenting on the new signing, Philip Lassman, VP Development, Accor Northern Europe said: “We believe that the Tribe brand has huge potential in the UK.
“The combination of design, art and smart service delivers an exceptional feeling of quality while still providing travellers with great value.
“Designed to enable guests to live, work and play in contemporary interiors, the new Tribe hotel will appeal to a wide of range of travellers from the UK and international guests flying in to Manchester.”
