Hyatt Hotels Manchester has become Manchester Museum’s exclusive hotel partner as part of its strategy to cultivate positive community impact and promote tourism to the district.  The 12-month sponsored partnership coincides with the museum’s much anticipated re-opening, which is scheduled for February 2023 following an extensive £15m refurbishment.

The dual branded Hyatt Regency and Hyatt House Manchester will run themed campaigns for guests to promote the new exhibition spaces, including the centrepiece ‘Golden Mummies of Egypt’ Hall.  The purpose-built hall will house an exhibition that has toured the US and China and features eight mummies and over a hundred objects from the museum’s existing Egyptology collection.

The 19-storey building comprises a 212 bedroom Regency Hotel and Hyatt House; a 116 bedroom apart-hotel. With a choice of luxurious rooms, suites and studios, the 4-star hotels located on Booth Street West will also welcome and host media and VIPs attending the museum’s press launches as well as running new and unique leisure stay packages with a creative twist to entice families to visit the new museum collection.

The major refurbishment programme at the museum named ‘hello future’, includes a new space called the Belonging Gallery, the Lee Kai Hung Chinese Culture Gallery, a new display area for the dinosaur and prehistoric exhibitions, and a South Asia Gallery, which is in partnership with the British Museum.  As part of the refurbishments, accessibility has been improved at the neo-Gothic building, with a new ramped entrance on Oxford Road.

Assumpta McDonald, general manager at Hyatt Regency Manchester, said: “We are delighted to support Manchester Museum, one of our closest neighbours, in this landmark year.  The new exhibitions and the vibrant programme of activity are bound to attract visitors not just from the region, but from across the UK and overseas.  As a global hospitality chain, our brand provides a familiar and luxurious welcome to guests from all over the world.  We are looking forward to theming rooms, menus and offers and displaying exciting artefacts in our lobby to tie in with exhibitions at the museum.”

Esme Ward, director at Manchester Museum, added: “The hotel is simply round the corner from us and there couldn’t be a better base for exploring the results of our exciting refurbishment.  With over 4.5 million items to discover, it’s a great idea for visitors to plan an extended stay and we are very thankful to the hotel for pledging their commitment in supporting us as we re-open to the public and for a very exciting year ahead.”
