Stock Exchange Hotel to open on the 15th November as a member of Relais and Châteaux
Stock Exchange Hotel will be opening on 15th November 2019 as a member of Relais and Châteaux.
Located in the heart of Manchester city centre, our building is a striking example of Edwardian architecture from the 20th Century. It is currently being meticulously transformed into a hotel which will offer a collection of 40 rooms, including two signature suites and a stunning 3,500 square foot penthouse residence, while our F&B will be overseen by chef Tom Kerridge.
We will open as a member of global hotel and restaurant fellowship, Relais and Châteaux and will be managed and operated by Manchester based GG Hospitality.
Having purchased the Grade II listed building six years ago, Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs explained that their vision was to bring the building back to life: “We knew the Stock Exchange well from when it was a restaurant but it was only when we viewed it in its entirety that we realised the extent of the history there.
“Most people familiar with the building will know of the domed ceiling above the old trading room floor, but there are many other original features that will not have been seen by many, such as fireplaces, vaults and stained glass windows. For us it was critical that this heritage was protected, and it now sits at the heart of what we hope will be an exciting new concept for Manchester.”
Speaking about the association with Relais and Châteaux, co-owner and GG Hospitality CEO Winston Zahra said: “We are honoured to be the first ever Relais and Châteaux member in Manchester and one of the first properties in the 50 year history of the fellowship to become a member before its doors open. This is testament to all of the work the team has been doing behind the scenes. We have put a great amount of effort into ensuring the design for the property truly respects the history of the building.
“The values and foundations of Relais and Châteaux are reflected in every detail of our offering and we are committed to preserving an important part of Manchester’s heritage, while offering quality service in an exceptional setting.”
