With Manchester having up to a million international visitors in a year, hotels are an essential part of the city. By 2013 there were 7,860 hotel rooms around Manchester and with plans to increase this number in the works, it has been said that the figure will jump to a huge 11,137 by 2016. It's all well and good building masses of hotels, but will developers be able to cater for all of Manchester's 1,171,000+ worldwide visitors?

Considering this, events in the city, such as the yearly Christmas markets, constantly growing in popularity and adding £74.3m to the local economy in 2012, there's definitely a gap in the market for new brands to join the hotel world and massive potential to fill the beds.

In this article, we'll investigate which Manchester hotels are making the most of social media and share some of our top tips for creating a strong social marketing plan that will help you attract new customers in the increasingly competitive hospitality market.
