The world’s first football hotel, Hotel Football has joined The Quays Partnership, the group that promotes The Quays as a tourism destination in Britain. The Quays is Greater Manchester’s stunning waterfront destination and home to some of the most spectacular attractions and iconic buildings in the UK.
The partnership is comprised of the Northwest’s best cultural, sporting and leisure destinations, including The Lowry, IWM North, part of Imperial War Museums, Emirates Old Trafford, home of Lancashire County Cricket Club, City Centre Cruises, Mersey Ferries and the Lowry Outlet. Also, included in the partnership is The Old Trafford Lodge and The Copthorne Manchester, Salford & Trafford Councils, the Manchester Tourist Board, Marketing Manchester and MediaCityUK.
GG Hospitality directors and Manchester United legends, Ryan Giggs and Gary Neville opened the doors to the world’s first football hotel earlier this year. Located opposite Manchester United’s OId Trafford stadium, the four-star 133-room hotel features subtly themed interiors, a rooftop five-a-side football pitch, a 185-seat restaurant, conference rooms and an Old Trafford Supporters Club basement bar. To add to the footballing credentials other stalwarts, on Hotel Football’s board include, Philip Neville, Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt.
For United fans, the hotel offers the ultimate match day experience, with bespoke packages available and magnificent views of the stadium. For anyone else, the hotel is a cool and modern go-to destination to enjoy a night away, morning coffee or a meal at the hotel’s restaurant, Café Football Manchester – where two-Michelin star chef, Michael Wignall, has created the menu; offering traditional, wholesome dishes that have been transformed into something extraordinary – signature dishes include The Boss Burger and Café Football Sausage Roll.
Hotel Football is a welcome addition to The Quays, adding to its wealth of exciting places and activities to see and do. Housed within one square mile, all of its attractions are within easy walking distance, making it the ideal location for a day out or weekend break. The Quays is a one-stop destination for entertainment, dining out, arts, culture and shopping!
