Manchester Central Travelodge Revamp

New Dreamer Bed room concept created by customers

Manchester Central Travelodge Revamp

BUDGET hotel group Travelodge is spending £57m on a dramatic refurbishment programme in 2013 – and its Manchester Central flagship hotel in Blackfriars Street is evidence of money well spent.

Travelodge CEO Grant Hearn says: “We have worked with our customers to create a new room which offers more comfort, quality and style. The hero of our new room is a luxurious bed that is normally found in high-end hotels.”

Feedback from customers stated they wanted an inviting, functional, warm, relaxing environment, with the main focus of the room being an extremely comfortable bed. Hence the arrival of an upgraded new king size bed from Sleepeezee, used predominantly by luxury hotels worldwide.

The new Travelodge Dreamer Bed boasts an 800 pocket sprung mattress and each individual spring is designed to follow the natural contour of an individual’s body. This provides the correct amount of support and comfort to ensure that customers receive a good quality night’s sleep. For further comfort, the bed is dressed with a quilted mattress topper and bounce back duvet and pillows. 
The bed also features a unique benefit of housing two space saving comfy truckle beds within its base. When the beds are in use the base can be used for storing luggage, providing extra space in the room.  The truckle beds have been designed to replace the traditional sofa bed and provide an enhanced service for families staying in the room.
The new feature wall has been painted a tranquil blue, as research shows our body clock is programmed to relate the colour blue to the hours of darkness. So when we look at the colour blue, our metabolism slows down, making us feel relaxed and sleepy. The colour also has the effect of making a room look larger and more light and airy.   Swoosh stripes in the colours of red, grey and blue have also been incorporated into the room décor via the curtains and bed runner.
Other additionsinclude a stylish white en-suite bathroom with a power shower, stain and water resistant carpet in a dark shade of blue, a larger desk area, new reading lights and a phone charging socket built into the bed frame.

All new hotels being opened this year will incorporate this new room design. The refit programme transforms Travelodge’s flagship hotel rooms, including Manchester Central, with the new design. By autumn 2014, over 80 per cent of the chain’s estate will incorporate the new room design.
