Now open: The Reach at Piccadilly, Manchester – A Tribute Portfolio Hotel, part of Marriott Bonvoy’s portfolio of more than 30 extraordinary brands  – pays tribute to the northern city’s unique industrial history and the pioneers who made it what it is today.

The Reach at Piccadilly features a chic and captivating design, with 215 impressive guest rooms, eight suites, and a ground-floor restaurant & bar: Lock 84.

Part of the Marriott Bonvoy’s Tribute Portfolio brand, this premium, design-led hotel honours Manchester’s rich heritage.

Located in the city centre, the 11-storey building towers over the Rochdale Canal, which was once used to transport goods across the city.

The hotel’s bespoke concept draws inspiration from its location, using the materials that were once carried down through the canals: coal, cotton, timber, wool, limestone, and salt.

ICA, one of the world’s leading hotel architecture and design studios, has led the design to transform an existing aparthotel into a refined luxury hotel. The hotel design is a progressive interpretation of the industrial era, Manchester’s pioneers, canalside living, and the beautiful craftsmanship of the narrow boats. Expect nautical, nostalgic interiors, with quality craftsmanship and greenery scattered throughout. Other features include bespoke artwork, influenced by the Rochdale waterways; brass detailing, inspired by boat grab-rail tops; and locally designed feature tabletops, with a nod to mill engines.

Collaborating with local partners is a key part of The Reach at Piccadilly’s food & drink offering. The restaurant, Lock 84, incorporates the city’s heritage in a variety of ways. Offering an ultimate all-day dining experience of speciality small plates, Lock 84 uses the best, sustainably sourced and seasonal ingredients from local suppliers.

The Reach at Piccadilly forms part of Tribute Portfolio, a collection of characterful, independent hotels from Marriott Bonvoy that are drawn together by their passion for sincere service, captivating design and a drive to create vibrant social scenes for guests and locals alike. All Tribute Portfolio hotels have their own unique vibe.

Stephen Bench, Managing Director of Lighthouse Hotel Management said: “We are delighted to launch this exciting addition to the portfolio. The Reach at Piccadilly prides itself on local authenticity and celebrating Manchester’s historical roots. Guests from around the world can certainly expect a warm, northern welcome.”
