Manchester Premier Inn celebrates local Premier League clash

To celebrate a football match that divides a city, one of Manchester's central Premier Inns has transformed two of its floors for the upcoming City-United derby – one into red and one into blue.

As the city gears up for the match, which will take place at Old Trafford on Monday 8 April, Manchester football fans can head to the Premier Inn Manchester city centre (Piccadilly) on Dale Street to pledge their allegiance alongside other supporters. The hotel has even adorned each room with golden plaques in honour of some of Manchester's footballing greats.

United's red floor includes Room 99 – 'The Treble Room' – in homage of United's historical 1999 treble win and Room 19 – 'The Champions Suite' – the number of league titles United have won.

Not to be outdone by Sir Alex Ferguson's men, the City floor has 'The Aguero Suite' in room '93:20' named after the exact moment City striker Sergio Aguero scored the last gasp winner against Queens Park Rangers last season to snatch the Premier League crown from United's grasp.

The transformed hotel doesn’t just accommodate the reds and blues.

Its top floor is 'neutral', holding the 'Dennis Law Suite' who played for United and City and 'The Sparky Mark Hughes Suite' who played for United and managed their noisy neighbours.

The now red, blue and purple hotel will clamp down on late check-outs with staff calling the time that has elapsed after guests are meant to check out as 'Fergie Time' – due to United's knack for scoring injury time goals after the 90 minutes is up.
