About the hotel
Deluxe Class Modern Hotel. The hotel is part of the new Chapel Wharf Development on the banks of the River Irwell in the city centre. The hotel is located just off Deansgate, Manchester's principal shopping street with branches of Selfridges and Harvey Nichols.
The rooms are the ultimate in five star luxury with all the technological additions you would expect of a hotel of this standard. The rooms are so superior in size and the decor is contemporary and minimalist with neutral colours. There is a chaisse lounge in each room. Bathrooms are large and very impressive.
The hotel's restaurant is Marco Pierre White's first venture outside of London. It has views over the River Irwell and offers a surprisingly good value menu, especially for Sunday lunch. Popular with visitors and local alike.
The hotel's facade is ultra-modern in glass and steel. There is a pedestrian area at the entrance to the hotel complex at the base of the stunning Trinity Bridge which links the hotel to Deansgate.
The lobby is large, spacious and has an airy atrium with a high ceiling. A staircase leads from the lobby to the mezzanine and restaurant floor.
This is the most luxurious hotel in Manchester. It has an excellent location, parking on site and super communication links. The health spa has 6 treatment rooms and separate relaxation areas offering the latest treatments. There is also a gym and sauna. (GW 06/2009)
