Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Just a few minutes’ walk from Manchester Piccadilly station, the Macdonald Manchester is Manchester's largest 4-star hotel. With the city centre literally on your doorstep, it’s perfect for exploring the city’s attractions.

There’s plenty to see -- theatres and museums, the Opera House, Manchester Arena and Manchester Art Gallery are all central. Sports fans can be at Old Trafford in 20 minutes (by car) while those in search of retail therapy can head for the Trafford Centre shopping complex, also 20 minutes’ drive away.

Part of the fun of a city break is exploring the area’s restaurants but if you’re back at base, the AA-Rosette Scottish Steakhouse offers a choice of cuts cooked in an open kitchen on a charcoal-fuelled Josper Grill. There’s plenty for non-steak fans, too, although vegetarians seeking variety might want to try elsewhere. There’s a lounge and bar, for afternoon tea or pre-dinner drinks.

Hotel facilities include a Technogym and the Harmony & Serenity Spa, with a thermal suite featuring hot-rock and infra-red saunas, a steam room, an ice igloo and heated loungers, as well as a range of treatments. Using the thermal suite will cost £30 (it’s free if you’ve booked a treatment).

There are 338 modern bedrooms with triple glazing to keep out city noise. All offer free WiFi, flat-screen TVs and iPod docking stations, plus walk-in power showers and luxury baths. Upgrade to an Executive Room for a king sized bed, Nespresso machine, fluffy bathrobes and slippers, luxury toiletries and free mineral water.
