STAYCITY GROUP RELINQUISHES LEASE ON LAYSTALL ST, MANCHESTER PROPERTY

Dublin-based aparthotel operator Staycity Group has announced that it has relinquished the lease on its property in Laystall Street, Manchester with immediate effect.

Staycity’s on-going strategy is to roll out purpose-built properties that are geared towards delivering an exceptional guest experience.

The Manchester, Laystall Street property has played a big role in promoting the Staycity brand in the city and in delivering revenue and guest satisfaction. However, the company now appreciates the need for fit-for-future buildings purposely designed to deliver the best experience for guests.

Guests with forward bookings will be offered alternative accommodation at Staycity Manchester Piccadilly. www.staycity.com.
