Carl Davies excited to be leading hospitality team at stylish new hotel
18th January 2021: Maldron Hotel Manchester City Centre has announced the appointment of Carl Davies as General Manager ahead of its official opening which is set to take place in February.
Situated in the heart of Manchester, the stylish four-star Maldron Hotel Manchester City Centre, which is owned by the Dalata Hotel Group, will feature 278 modern bedrooms, a restaurant and bar, a coffee shop, fitness suite and meeting and event rooms.
Opening opposite the new Circle Square development off Oxford Road, the hotel is perfectly located for exploring the city’s excellent shops, bars, restaurants, museums and theatres.
Carl, who originates from South Wales, has been working in the hospitality industry for 17 years and joined the Dalata Hotel Group in 2016. Beginning his career with the Irish hotel group as Food and Beverage Manager for Clayton Hotel Cardiff, he quickly moved up the ranks to Deputy General Manager.
Maldron Hotel Manchester City Centre isn’t Carl’s first experience opening a hotel. In 2018, he relocated to Newcastle to help open the Maldron Hotel Newcastle as Deputy General Manager, followed by a stint in London as interim Deputy General Manager at Clayton Crown Hotel.
Carl said: “I am absolutely delighted to be appointed General Manager for our new Maldron Hotel Manchester City Centre. It’s been incredibly exciting watching the hotel come together, from the early days of construction through to the recruitment of our experienced team as we inch closer to opening day.
“There is a great buzz in the air with momentum picking up pace and the hotel really beginning to take shape now. No two days have been the same so far but that is what I love about working in hospitality.
“The hotel is in such a brilliant location and our guests will have all that is great about Manchester right on the doorstep, with comfortable stylish rooms for them to relax and unwind in after a day of exploring.
“Manchester is a really friendly and diverse place, with so much to offer to people looking for a city break. We are very excited to welcome our guests with the friendly and warm customer service Maldron Hotels are known for.”
The new hotel is just a four-minute walk from Oxford Road train station and Piccadilly train station just a nine-minute stroll. Guests can reach Manchester Airport in 25 minutes by car or taxi.
From the hotel, guests can enjoy easy access to Manchester’s thriving entertainment venues such as Bridgewater Hall, AO Arena, Palace Theatre, Manchester Opera House and the Manchester Central Convention Complex.
The hotel is within walking distance of The Gay Village centred around the vibrant Canal Street, with many more pubs and bars within the area too.
The main shopping areas including Market Street, Arndale Centre and The Royal Exchange are within a 15-minute walk from the hotel. The Trafford Centre is a 20-minute drive away or you can hop on a tram from the nearby St Peter’s Square Metrolink stop.
