Naughty Has Never Been Nicer at this New Boutique Hotel

Christian Grey may well have been the naughtiest name on everybody’s lips last month, but those of us looking for something seriously scandalous are getting our knickers in a twist for the new boutique hotel in Manchester –  Hotel Gotham.

Having opened it’s newly-refurbished doors on 7th April 2015, the hotel team has one mission: “to make it the sexiest hotel in Europe”, and my goodness have they achieved that!

The listed art deco building in the centre of Manchester was once a bank, and has retained a number of its original features designed by Edwin Lutyens, which have been recognised as architectural marvels. However, those same features have been offset by some spectacular innovation, such as the double height space for a feature staircase between the 6th and 7th floors as well as a rooftop bar and club.

As with any story that has real sex appeal, renovations were preceded by a healthy dose of scandal in 2010 when it was alleged that safe deposit boxes containing jewellery and master tapes from Joy Division were found on the site. Since then however, it’s been less about rock star rumours and more about five star glamour.

Retaining its original charm, this boutique hotel still has the enviable elegance of art deco at its finest, but polished and teased into a destination fit for the 21st century. It boasts seductive slate hues, shocks of bright colour when you least expect it and quirky details scattered throughout to make you giggle with utter delight.

If Rennie Mackintosh was making a 21st century comeback, this would be his masterpiece. If Gatsby had hosted a party in Manchester he would have thrown it here. And if Jordan Belfort had really wanted to blow a fortune in style then he would have called Hotel Gotham.

Sure there’s been some interior renovations, but this isn’t the kind of magic an interior designer can create. This is about history, architecture, style, vision, architecture and location.

It isn’t just a boutique hotel, it’s a treat that’s definitely worth waiting for… and the wait is finally over!

All Bespoke Hotels are more than just a little different, which in turn makes them extremely special. Once you’ve experienced the elegance and comfort of any one of our Country, Family, Business, Luxury or Boutique hotels, you’ll always wish to seek one out as you travel.

Guaranteeing Luxury Facilities

Although the majority of Bespoke Hotels are much smaller than the monolithic, imposing brand names, you’ll know you’re going to receive a wonderful welcome, luxurious facilities and great personal service during your stay. All of Bespoke Hotels’ boutique properties are unique in this regard and will provide a stylish and intimate setting for you as well as a great restaurant for every meal of the day.

Why Bespoke Hotels are successful

Bespoke Hotels survive on their reputation which means they must provide excellent service so that their customers keep coming back. Customers only return because they are provided with a level of personal service that goes beyond the norm provided at bog standard hotels.

Because Bespoke Hotels are relatively small, it is easy for the employees and the customers to get to know each other and understand how everything clicks into place. Because customers of these hotels are bonding with employees, there’s a better morale amongst all concerned. A better morale always provides a higher level of personal service and a genuine interest in the customer’s stay at the hotel. In other word, you will feel the benefits!

Quiet or Busy?

Depending upon your requirements, Bespoke Hotels can vary from those fitted with the latest technology and gadgets to enable you to operate uninterrupted throughout your stay, to those of a quieter and more sedate disposition, that seek to provide a relaxing atmosphere and a stress-free stay because the employees are able to devote their time to the customer’s individual needs.

Many Bespoke Hotels create a niche which is valued by many travellers and this is what sets them apart from the competition. When a hotel knows and understands your particular quirks and requirements, then in turn makes sure they are attended to time after time, you’ll come away all the more satisfied.

Reserve Bespoke Business Hotels near Popular Attractions

When booking business hotels for your employees or team mates, consider those that are near popular attractions in the area. This is ideal if an employee has to travel for an extended period of time and would be able to take a little time out by experiencing the local area. In some cases, the only time an employee will visit a particular destination is to conduct business, so being able to see the sights will make the trip not only good for business but also memorable for your employee.

There are many affordable and comfortable Bespoke business hotels located in the tourist-friendly spots. While not every business trip will have sufficient downtime, sadly, some excursions will require an employee to remain in an area despite not conducting business on a daily basis. Such scenarios can keep morale topped up, while also allowing employees to rest and thereby improving their concentration.

Keeping the Entertainment Simple

If business is being conducted in an area with a small population and not much entertainment, consider keeping it simple. Look for a Bespoke corporate hotel surrounded by restaurants, parks, or shopping centres. Obviously, you aren’t sending an employee on a holiday, but there’s no harm providing some form of entertainment during the trip!

Keeping it simple lets them experience local dining and shopping instead of being cooped up in their room. Even Bespoke business hotels located near a park provide some form of entertainment. Employees can go for a walk, a run, or just take a break from the daily grind of business meetings.

Entertainment for Long Business Trips

Some business trips can take weeks, and it boosts morale and helps employees stay focused when they can experience what the local town or city has to offer. When researching Bespoke business hotels for your employees ask the staff about local attractions. While you won’t be able to please everyone’s tastes, you could consider buying tickets for a particular event, for example. If employees want to experience other attractions during free time on the trip, they can do so at their own expense.

Some popular features that often surround Bespoke business hotels include horse racing, sports games, and theatrical productions. Let your employees unwind with a round of golf on the hotel’s course, or enjoy a historical tour of the town. Whether you choose to pay for some form of entertainment or simply book the rooms near a multitude of options for your employees to select from, keeping your employees alert and happy can benefit your business no end.
