Where to Stay in Manchester?
Most Manchester hotels are located around the city centre, and with the city itself being relatively compact a great Manchester hotel deal will mean you are well-located to explore this north-west gem.
Manchester hotels close to the very heart of the city mean good access on foot to the likes of the Manchester Gallery and the great shopping on offer at the Arndale Centre and on Market Street. They are also great to make the most of the city's popular nightlife. A central location also means ease of access to Manchester Piccadilly train station, the city's main rail hub.
Hotel deals to properties in the Salford Quays area are good choices for catching a show at the Lowry Theatre or a trip to Old Trafford to see the home of Manchester United. For both of these main areas for hotel deals in Manchester, there are luxury hotels and hotels to suit more modest budgets.
Manchester Accommodation Options
As arguably one of the United Kingdom's most popular cities, Manchester hotels range from the budget hotels popular for groups of friends enjoying the city's nightlife to more expensive and upmarket properties for couples or business travellers.
Possibly the city's most famous hotel is the Midland Hotel, located in the centre of the city near to Manchester Central (formerly the G-Mex) and the impressive Manchester Library on St Peters Square. Ramada, Malmaison, Radisson, MacDonald and Britannia all have a presence in Manchester and the city really has a great range to suit all tastes and budgets. Ibis and Premier Inn offer cheaper, well-located accommodation options.
For those looking for a bit of culture, The Palace Hotel is right opposite the Palace Theatre, which showcases performances of musicals and popular touring shows, while The Lowry is well placed to visit the Lowry museum and theatre in Salford Quays.
Manchester Hotel Recommendations?
The Midland Hotel offers a fantastic location, and the hotel is a Grade II listed building too, giving it a sense of classic charm. The Lowry is one of the city's newer hotels and, as part of the Rocco Forte Collection, is a great five-star choice. For a well-located hotel that's easier on the wallet, the Ibis on Portland Street is about as central as you can get.
Transport in Manchester
Flights land at Manchester International airport, just a 20-minute train ride to the centre of Manchester. Once you arrive at Manchester Piccadilly, which also connects Manchester to destinations in Scotland, Wales and southern England, a five-minute walk will have you on Market Street in the city centre. The city is well-served by public transport too, with the Metrolink tram system stretching to locations such as Bury and Old Trafford, as well as various stations along the way. There are plenty of buses and taxis are relatively inexpensive.
