Renaissance Manchester City Centre Hotel

Creative Tourist
Renaissance Hotel - Mikey

The Renaissance Hotel is still open for business but due to be demolished, sometime, in the near future. It will be a quite a relief when it goes. In terms of huge buildings with little merit, it’s up there with the worst of what arguably wrecked Manchester’s natural layout and scale in the 1960’s/70’s period.

The plan is for the site is to engage with the River Irwell, immediately behind, in a way that the city has talked of but not managed as yet. Dreams of a River Park and fine walkway all the way to The Quays from this area seem more than well intentioned and we really hope they come to pass.
