As one of England’s most vibrant and visited cities, our Manchester hotels
put all the sights of the city center at your fingertips, as well as
providing convenient access to the airport, convention centers, stadiums,
and more. Bustling Manchester lies in the northwest of England, and comprises the
third largest metropolitan area in the country. In the distance rise the
Pennine Hills, widely considered to be one of the most scenic natural areas
of the U.K. Known for its dominance during Britain’s Industrial Revolution, the
accelerated growth of Manchester’s textile manufacturing transformed the
ancient medieval town into one of the world’s commercial powerhouses of the
19th century. Today, Mancunians remain fiercely proud of Manchester’s
economic successes and thriving cultural scene. Many of Manchester’s most impressive landmarks pay tribute to its
cotton-milling past and the Victorian wealth this generated. One such
building is the impressive Manchester Town Hall in central Albert Square.
The square itself features monuments to Prince Albert and local notables,
so give yourself plenty of time to explore here, too. Mixed in with the
architecture of other centuries, Manchester’s many exciting skyscrapers dot
the skyline, including Beetham Tower and One Angel Square. Have a music fan in your travel party? Manchester is the birthplace of
bands such as Oasis and the Smiths. Pay homage and catch a show at the
always-rollicking Manchester Arena, host to some of the most lavish
entertainment spectacles in the world. High-end performing arts find their
curtain calls at the Manchester Opera House, while testaments to the city’s technological history are held at the Museum of Science and Industry. Retail mavens will find a home away from home in Manchester’s mix of large
shopping centers, local markets, and independent boutiques. Altrincham
Charter Market has been luring shoppers to its varied stalls since 1290,
while the quirky Northern Quarter offers goods on the more modern end of
the spectrum. For big name brands, look no further than The Arndale Center,
one of Europe’s largest and most popular shopping destinations. Mancunians take their soccer (or football, as they call it) very, very
seriously, and with two world-class teams bringing fans to the stadiums in
droves, you’ll love feeling like a local for the day. The Manchester City
team holds court at the City of Manchester Stadium, while Manchester United
hosts games at Old Trafford. A major hub for commerce and tourism alike, Manchester has extensive
transportation options. Manchester Airport flies to destinations across the
U.K. and abroad, and the city is crisscrossed with a convenient Metrolink
light rail system. The two major train stations, Piccadilly and Victoria,
provide a gateway to all major stops. In fact, the railway between
Manchester and Liverpool was the first passenger railway in the world. Visit booming Manchester and rest easy knowing that our selection of
Manchester hotels will have you settled in comfort, class, and convenience.
From our sterling service to our budget-friendly prices, we take the
guesswork out of your accommodation choices. Book with us today and start
dreaming of your time away in Manchester.
Great hotel for the price I paid, near to the motorway network for good links to local areas. Building and staff are really impressive. A hotel is a hotel as long as it's clean - the friendly staff[More] make this hotel just that little bit better[Less]
Another visit to Burnley
Another successful visit to see family in Burnley, made all the better by the stay at the Holiday Inn Express![Less]
Great staff and good service
Great staff, friendly atmosphere, nothing too much trouble, the staff go out of their way to help[Less]
Business travel and this hotel
The hotel stay, service and room comfort/cleanliness is awesome. However, I was here on business. The internet is the worst you can possibly have. As a business traveler, you depend on IHG to provide[More] not only free internet to their customers but reliable. The internet conditions at this hotel is very poor and unacceptable. I then spoke to a staff member and they mentioned that I can upgrade internet for a fee. As a regular IHG customer?? wow. Ok, so I upgraded; no major difference. I could not get much work done.
For business; I would not recommend this hotel.[Less]
Great staff and a superb location
By Simon's cat
Came to see ELO at the Arena - a special occasion. The Hotel was ideal, bar very nice, breakfast good and rooms comfortable. Valet parking is a bit of a bargain and extremely efficient.[Less]
Great Macnhester City Centre hotel.
i always stay here when I'm working in Manchester. Staff are friendly, rooms are of a consistent high standard, and it is centrally located for shops, bars, restaurants, etc.,[Less]
Team away day hotel stay
This hotel which has just above basic facilities is probably the best value for a one night stay.
When the hotel is busy their bar/lounge fills very quickly so if you want to sit and drink best to[More] get there early.
The TV volume in the bars lounge is set on mute which I guess is for the benefit of every one however I was trying to watch a football match and would have liked a bit of sound
If your like me and enjoy a full English breakfast you better stay somewhere else, their menu does not include bacon or fried eggs.
To summarise ok for a one night stay and if you want sausage beans and scrabbled egg you'll be fine there.[Less]
Comfortable bed and great service
Staff very friendly and helpful. Relaxed atmosphere.[Less]
stay before holiday
By super well
The hotel was very clean and tidy, beds were very comfortable, there was plenty of choice at breakfast. We did pay to be picked up at airport but it was only £3 each both ways. The price of the stay[More] was very reasonable and relaxing before we set of on our holiday. Thank you to all at Manchester Holiday Inn[Less]
