Lowry Hotel

Lowry Hotel Rating: 5.0 Pearls

It's hard not to be impressed by the glittering, curved facade and peaceful riverfront setting of this luxury landmark hotel. Little effort has been spared in creating a sleek, contemporary design space with a foot firmly in the world of modern art, from the lobby to the guest rooms. And while rooms aren't perfect, they're the largest you'll find in Manchester and finished beautifully with Italian porcelain bathrooms. The serene restaurant has an excellent menu and river views, but the on-site spa, strangely for a five-star, has no pool. Those not so keen on the ultra-modern might prefer Velvet -- at around the same price it's more central and definitely cozier.
Radisson Blu Edwardian Manchester

Radisson Blu Edwardian Manchester Rating: 4.5 Pearls

You'd be hard pressed to find a hotel building that has borne witness to a more impressive catalog of iconic 20th-century moments, from Churchill speeches to groundbreaking musical performances. Rooms are certainly high-end, but lacking the wow factor some may expect from an advertised five-star property. The spa is suitably swanky, especially the large pool, and the two on-site dining options are both excellent. The nearest competition is The Midland hotel, offering similarly refined lodging close by, though its rates are usually a little lower.
Arora Hotel Manchester

Arora Hotel Manchester Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Although impressive from the outside, the Arora Hotel doesn't quite deliver with its interiors, which are smart and modern, but largely lacking in character. Rooms, too, are perfectly adequate, with all the amenities you'd expect, but offer little to raise them above the average. The on-site restaurant, 24 Bar & Grill, does promise an impressive menu, and the hotel's excellent central location means there are plenty of other dining options at its doorstep. All in all, the hotel is a pretty good value for where it's situated, but travelers seeking a bit more style might consider The Midland nearby.

Velvet Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The interiors of Velvet are unabashedly plush, and both the lobby and lounge bar are impressive examples of maximalist design. It's located in the heart of Manchester's gay district, and within walking distance of Chinatown and the Piccadilly railway station. Each room is individually styled, and none fall short on amenities. The basement restaurant offers quality dining, and the bar hosts DJ nights on the weekends. Noise can be an issue when the nightlife really gets going, but it's a fun and fabulous hotel for those looking for a more energetic scene.
Radisson Blu Hotel, Manchester Airport

Radisson Blu Hotel, Manchester Airport Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Being the only hotel physically connected to Manchester Airport, via an elevated walkway, is certainly convenient -- and the hotel's large, airy lobby is actually reminiscent of an airport check-in area. Rooms are smart and well-equipped, though at the mercy of the air-conditioning as windows don't open. An on-site health club with pool and gym is a bonus, but the prices at the hotel restaurant are a little inflated. There are a few other hotel options, such as the Hilton or Crowne Plaza, which are also four-star and tend to be slightly cheaper.
Roomzzz Aparthotel Manchester City

Roomzzz Aparthotel Manchester City Rating: 4.0 Pearls

There are certainly advantages to choosing an apartment over a standard hotel room, and Roomzzz Aparthotel makes the idea even more appealing. Units are self-contained (meaning they come with fully-equipped kitchens), and have a high-end, contemporary finish. The rooms come equipped with impressive technological features such as Mac computers, and have stylish bathrooms. Roomzzz is located right in Manchester's city center, so noise is a possibility on lower floors, and some apartments show some wear. That said, if a luxury apartment stay in central Manchester is what you're after, this is a clear winner.
The Midland

The Midland Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Richly steeped in history and elegant finery, this grand old dame stands clearly as one of the most impressive of Manchester's hotels. Its heritage is displayed in its outstanding architecture and celebrated through its sumptuous and well-maintained interiors. Dining is exceptional, with two outstanding restaurants on-site, while the health club impresses with a swimming pool and squash court. Some rooms are beginning to show their ages, and street noise can be an issue, but you'll be hard-pressed to find another nearby hotel with so much character, heritage, and pizzazz.
Crowne Plaza Hotel Manchester City Centre

Crowne Plaza Hotel Manchester City Centre Rating: 4.0 Pearls

From its jazzy glass frontage to its sleek, angular interiors, this upscale hotel pushes all the right design buttons for those keen on unabashedly bold contemporary styling. The location is great if you're not after a city center setting, and rooms come with Egyptian cotton sheets and free "sleep packs" with aromatherapy sprays. Dining and drinking options are impressive, but the health and fitness facilities are limited to just a small gym and there's no parking on-site. The rates aren't bad for this caliber of hotel, but if you're on a strict budget, consider the Holiday Inn Express around the corner.
Great John Street Hotel

Great John Street Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

It's rare to find a hotel set in a lovely old Victorian schoolhouse, and even rarer to find one renovated with such a degree of panache -- interiors effortlessly blend original fixtures with vintage pieces and warm contemporary design. Rooms are no less impressive, with charming eclectic furnishings and smart, modern finishes. The location isn't bad either -- central yet quiet next to the famous Coronation Street Studios. A rooftop garden with hot tub overlooking Manchester is also a special touch. Those looking for more budget-friendly options might want to check out the Radisson Blu Edwardian a few blocks away.
Macdonald Manchester Hotel & Spa

Macdonald Manchester Hotel & Spa Rating: 3.5 Pearls

Under its impressively sweeping modern frontage, the upper-middle-range Macdonald Manchester is a pretty traditional, even conventional, hotel. Rooms are good enough, with plenty in the way of amenities, though most have a fairly uninspiring finish. The steak restaurant is a strong selling point, but the spa could use a pool or whirlpool (though it is a plus that there is a spa at all for this category). The hotel's convenient location is one of its strong points -- it's just around the corner from Manchester's main train terminal, Piccadilly Station. If you're looking for something in the area, it may be worth your while to check out the rates at the nearby DoubleTree by Hilton Manchester Piccadilly.
