Starwood Hotels & Resorts has signed a new W Hotel. The W Manchester is scheduled to open in 2010 and will be located in the heart of the city's vibrant warehouse district.

The sleek, new, Ian Simpson-designed hotel will boast approximately 160 luxuriously appointed guest rooms, 7,000 square feet of meeting and event space, a signature spa, fitness facility, a W Hotels The Store retail store, and a world-class destination  restaurant.

"This eye-catching new hotel will not only energize the city's landscape, but will also give our guests a stylish, new alternative in the chic, modern city of Manchester," said Roeland Vos, President of Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Europe, Africa and Middle East. "W Manchester will offer escape, exclusivity and innovative design in the heart of the city's most sought-after neighbourhood, further expanding our fast-growing global portfolio."

Starwood is partnering with West Properties UK Ltd., a leading construction and property development company, to open W Manchester as part of the lifestyle-oriented 'Origin' mixed-use development. Centrally located on Princess Street, W Manchester will provide an exciting new venue for the city's hottest social events while serving as a sophisticated sanctuary for discerning travellers and local insiders. The hotel's vibrant and highly desirable location gives guests access to the city's finest theatres, music venues, restaurants and bars and is within walking distance to Manchester's main Piccadilly Station.

W Manchester will also feature a 4,000 square foot ballroom as well as more than 3,000 square feet of fully wired, flexible meeting space.
