In a statement high-rise building in the city centre, this modern hotel affords excellent views over the Manchester skyline and beyond. On the 23rd floor there's a swish cocktail bar, Cloud 23, which is a popular spot for celebrations, and an executive lounge, both with the best views in the hotel. Leisure facilities include a glass-roofed swimming pool, whirlpool tub, steam room, gym and independently-run spa. The 279 rooms are spacious, although the décor can feel corporate, with their stand-out feature being the city views from floor-to-ceiling windows. Families will enjoy the option of children's afternoon tea and being so close to the Science and Industry Museum. Leisure guests are just around the corner from the Bridgewater Hall, and business guests are a short walk from Manchester Central conference centre.



This is a great spot if you're watching a performance at the Bridgewater Hall concert venue or attending a conference at Manchester Central.

Manchester's trendy Northern Quarter, with its bars and restaurants, is within a 20-minute walk.
By car: 1 hour 20 minutes from Leeds, 2 hours from Birmingham and 4 hours from London. Private parking is available at £19 per day.
By train: There are regular trains to Manchester Piccadilly from Birmingham New Street (1 hour 30 minutes) and London Euston (2 hours 10 minutes) as well as most other major cities. Manchester Piccadilly station is a 10-minute taxi ride from the hotel.
