Meliá Hotels International has announced the opening date for Innside Newcastle, its second property under the brand in the UK.
The 161-room Innside Newcastle will launch in December in the city's Quayside area, offering views across the River Tyne.
It will join a sister property in Manchester, which opened with 208 bedrooms in 2015.
Meliá is promoting the hotel as catering to business travellers with a bespoke ‘Workcation' package. The property features five multi-functional meeting areas, including a 'Big Ideas Space' with smart screens and comfortable chairs.
There is banqueting capacity for up to 170 people and guests can access a 24-hour gym and 'Open Living Lounge', which will serve food throughout the day.
Meliá is Spain's largest hotel group and runs Innside hotels in 28 locations.
It has a further 13 properties in the pipeline, and is set to launch Innside Liverpool in spring 2021.
