UK: SH Hotels & Resorts has announced it will open a Treehouse Hotel in Manchester, the brand’s second UK location which is scheduled to open in 2023.

Developed in partnership with Property Alliance Group, the hotel will mark the first phase of a £200 million redevelopment of the former Renaissance Hotel on Deansgate. Treehouse Hotel Manchester will be owned by a controlled affiliate of Starwood Capital Group.

It will comprise 216 bedrooms, a top floor restaurant and bar as well as a gym. 

The property is being designed in collaboration with the creative studio 93ft. The facade will feature local artists’ murals and inside will feature biophilia through the use of roof gardens, living green walls and a kitchen garden. 

A number of sustainable practices will be incorporated. These include harvested rainwater, a rooftop apiary to produce honey, and the use of reclaimed and recycled materials in the construction of the building and furniture.

“I’m really excited to launch our second Treehouse Hotel in the UK,” said CEO of Starwood, Barry Sternlicht. “Manchester is as much a destination for travellers as a gathering place for its energetic local community. Our Treehouse will introduce a new execution of fun and witty, and provide an imaginative hospitality experience. As a sustainable brand, we will reuse and repurpose the existing building. We are thrilled to set roots in the city of Manchester.”

The Treehouse brand first launched in London in November 2019, and will debut in the United States with a property located in Miami in 2023.
