The 10 best hotels in Manchester

Discover the top hotels in Manchester handpicked by local expert Luciana Bellini.

A visit to this vibrant northern city never disappoints, whether you’re coming to catch a football match, indulge in Manchester’s buzzy restaurant and nightlife scene, or check out a world-class museum. As for hotels, there are plenty to choose from, ranging from quirky boutique retreats to five-star luxury properties that are among some of the finest in the country. The bustling hub may be known for being a lively, youthful city, but its most impressive hotels are actually housed in some of Manchester’s oldest and most historic buildings, from grand former banks to atmospheric Victorian gems. There are hundreds of hotels dotted all over the city, ranging from cozy lodgings just made for romantic weekends to glamorous properties that showcase Manchester’s sophisticated side. Here I’ve whittled them down to bring you the 10 finest hotels in the city for a truly unforgettable stay.


Hotel Gotham


100 King Street



For a glamorous getaway in the heart of Manchester, you can’t beat Hotel Gotham. Located on bustling King Street – right in the middle of the city center and just a 10-minute walk to Piccadilly railway station – it’s hard to miss thanks to its grand Art Deco facade, which was formerly a branch of the Midland Bank.
The building’s history is fully embraced in the hotel’s opulent décor, which makes the most of the old bank doors and the main staircase’s gleaming brass banister, as well as quirkier touches like moneybag do-not-disturb signs and piggy bank-shaped biscuits in all the rooms.
Decadence is the order of the day here, with rooms decked out in faux fur throws and jewel-colored soft furnishings, and a gold-tiled private members’ club on the top floor offering spectacular views over the city below.


The Midland


16 Peter Street



This elegant Grade II-listed property might just be Manchester’s most famous hotel, having first opened in 1903 as a luxurious railway retreat on Peter Street. If you’re looking for somewhere for a romantic weekend with an instant wow factor, this is it.
Stepping into the grand tiled lobby feels like being instantly transported to a bygone era, while the hotel’s original marble-lined corridors remain, built to be wide enough so that two women in gowns could walk down side by side. The hotel’s main claim to fame? It’s said this is where Rolls met Royce, and you’ll find Rolls Royce-themed artworks lining the walls.
Evenings here begin with a glass of champagne in the hotel bar, before settling down to a modern-British tasting menu at the hotel’s fine dining restaurant, The French. For a spot of pampering, there’s also a tranquil spa, with a relaxation pool, whirlpool tub, and treatment rooms.


Stock Exchange Hotel


4 Norfolk Street



As the name would suggest, this glitzy hotel is housed in Manchester’s former Stock Exchange, an Edwardian baroque beauty first opened in 1906. Now a luxurious 40-room retreat close to Manchester’s main cultural attractions and owned by former Manchester United footballers Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs, it’s one of the most spectacular places to stay in the city thanks to its heady mix of heritage and modern sophistication.
The ornate interiors feature many of the building’s most striking original features, including lavish marble floors and columns, while the hotel restaurant, Stock Market Grill, is housed on the building’s former trading floor under an impressive domed ceiling.
The rooms are decked out in chic neutral tones with elegant touches like marble-topped desks, but for a truly unforgettable stay opt for The House on the top floor, a three-bedroom suite with its own private roof terrace.


Dakota Manchester


29 Ducie Street



Located on the edge of Manchester’s hip Northern Quarter – one of my favorite neighborhoods – this luxury boutique hotel ticks all the boxes when it comes to style and substance. Sultry interiors reflect the hotel’s dramatic black façade, with a moody palette of dark and muted tones used throughout the rooms and public spaces, lending the entire property an old-school glamour vibe.
There’s plenty of luxury here too, from the dedicated champagne room to the chic cigar terrace. The rooms are just as classy, whether you opt for a Classic Double, which comes with a feather-soft bed and underfloor heating as standard, or the magnificent Grand Deluxe Suite, said to be the largest suite in all of Manchester.
If you can drag yourself away from your room, head to the Dakota Grill restaurant and order one of their signature prime-cut steaks washed down with a glass of red.


Leven Manchester


40 Chorlton Street



For a slice of New York-style living in the heart of Manchester, book a stay at Leven. The stylishly appointed building has a cool loft-style layout, with rooms boasting exposed brick walls, Crittall windows, and oak parquet floors. Making the most of the hotel’s name – which means ‘to live’, taken from old English with origins in the Dutch word ‘leven’ – each of the rooms has been designed to make you feel right at home, with deep bathtubs for soaking in and carefully curated artworks lining the walls.
Located near Manchester’s Canal Street, the center of the city’s Gay Village, there are plenty of brilliant bars and restaurants on the doorstep here, but if you’d rather stay put head to the hotel’s renowned Lobby Bar, which is my favorite place to go for a cocktail (don’t leave without trying the Black Forest Martini).


The Cow Hollow Hotel


57 Newton Street



This small boutique hotel in the city’s hip Northern Quarter, a five-minute walk from Manchester’s main shopping stretch, Market Street, may only have 16 rooms, but each one packs a mighty punch. Housed in a former textile warehouse, there are nods to the building’s history everywhere you turn, with exposed beams and original antique doors in the rooms.
But there are plenty of stylish modern touches too, pa
