Why We Love This Hotel
- The 5-star Hotel Gotham is set in an Art Deco former bank building
- The Honey Restaurant & members-only Club Brass have panoramic views across the city
- The restaurants, bars & shops of King Street are nearby, including luxury department store Harvey Nicholas
Located on King Street, the former centre of the North's banking industry, the 5-star Hotel Gotham opened in April 2015, 80 years after it first opened as a bank. Known to be one of Manchester's most chic destinations, King Street has a variety of restaurants, bars and designer stores.
The hotel is listed in The Time's 2014 Cool Hotel Guide, which describes it as a "bank robber's dream" with a "decadent, bling style". The property has an upside-down feel: the reception is on the sixth floor and rooms are on the first five floors. Receptionists in sharp pinstripes welcome guests with complimentary mini cocktails.
The Hotel Gotham has "seriously luxurious and nostalgic interiors, according to the Manchester Evening News, and reflects the Neoclassical style of the Grade II-listed building. Condé Nast Traveler praises the "tongue-in-cheek banking décor" – all rooms have moneybag-style laundry bags, gold bars are used as bookends and toiletry holders, and there are bat-shaped Do Not Disturb signs that pay homage to the fictional Gotham.
There's plenty to do in the area, which has a "rich history and culture, easily explored in its myriad museums and galleries", according to Lonely Planet. Further afield, the Salford architect Daniel Libeskind, is a 10-minute walk from the Harbour City Metro stop. The Lowry, with its multiple performance spaces, bars, restaurants and shops, is also a short walk from the Harbour City stop.
The restaurant, Honey, has typewriters on the wall and waiting staff are dressed as pinstripe-clad bank managers. The menu features a modern twist on brasserie classics and local dishes. The 7th-floor private members bar, which has three outdoor terraces, is accessed via an illuminated steel and brass staircase inspired by old bank vaults.
Each of the individually designed bedrooms in the hotel are "dark and decadent with grey walls, large comfy beds, leather bed heads and faux fur throws", according to The Daily Telegraph. Rooms range from club, executive and suites, and there are five Inner Sanctum suites. With no windows, these suites instead feature a huge wonder wall with a projection of the city skyline. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout.
