Marriott Airport Hotel unveils Brasserie Blanc as part of refurb
Manchester’s Marriott Airport Hotel has unveiled its multimillion-pound refurbishment with the help of celebrity chef Raymond Blanc, who has opened a Brasserie Blanc restaurant at the venue and was in attendance on the opening night.
Marriot has spent 18 months upgrading the hotel – all 215 spacious bedrooms have been decorated to the highest standard, outdoor areas have been re-landscaped and guests now arrive into a completely new open plan lobby area.
The large conferencing and social banqueting facilities have been enhanced and modernised and a completely new executive lounge has been unveiled.
The Brasserie Blanc restaurant offers home-cooked French food with a contemporary international twist and a vast wine cellar to complement the existing Italian San Carlo’s offering at the hotel.
Open every day from breakfast through to dinner, it has a range of menus and features an atrium roof and outdoor terrace.
Located less than two miles away from Manchester Airport, the property is not a ‘typical’ airport hotel. As well as Brasserie Blanc and San Carlo’s, guests and the local community can enjoy top class health and fitness facilities including a pool, fully equipped gym and the luxurious Four Seasons Spa.
Chris Pilling, hotel sales leader, said: “We offer a relaxing and welcoming start to any holiday, with flexible luggage and parking arrangements and free transfers to the airport terminals and train station.
“This is not just a hotel for travellers, however, we welcome repeat visits from guests who simply want to enjoy our range of top-class facilities.
“This hotel gives businesses, leisure travellers, and the local community a unique experience, in a great location.”
Mark Derry, Brasserie Blanc chief executive, added: “We are delighted to be opening our second site within a Marriott Hotel.
“This is part of an exciting new phase for Brasserie Blanc’s development.
“The bar, brasserie and terrace are absolutely stunning and we hope it will be a destination for local residents, as well as those travelling for business or pleasure.”
