"Service is second to none" -- Time Out
Why We Love It
- Central Manchester location
- Pool, sauna & steam room on site for guests
- Two trendy restaurants & a champagne bar
Radisson Blu Edwardian Manchester is a hotel with history at its core. Once the city's Free Trade Hall, the Grade-II-listed building, which was built in 1853, has been the venue for speeches by Winston Churchill and Benjamin Disraeli, and performances by Charles Dickens. It was also home to the Hallé Orchestra and was where Bob Dylan received the infamous heckle of "Judas".
It is a minute's walk from Manchester Central Library, whose design is loosely based on Rome's Pantheon and which recently underwent a £40 million refurbishment. The hotel is in the heart of the city, and is no more than a 20-minute walk from most city-centre attractions, including the Arndale shopping centre and the National Football Museum.
Some original features remain throughout the hotel, including the Opus Reserve champagne bar's colonnaded seating area and the coat of arms above reception. It has two restaurants -- Steak & Lobster and Opus One, both with a lively atmosphere. There is also a spa in the basement with a 40-foot swimming pool, a sauna, a steam room and a gym.
All rooms have iPod docking stations and free Wi-Fi. Bathrooms are clad with Scandinavian slate. Business Class rooms include coffee machines, and the Al Fresco Suites have a separate living area and decked veranda.
