This is a brand new 10 storey purpose built ultra modern hotel. It has an attractive angular design to the front and windows that are made from multi-colored glass that appear to change color as the light alters throughout the day. The stunning exterior has been achieved through the collaboration of the design team and Manchester City Council who were both keen to create a building that is influenced by the best of the old and new buildings of this area of Manchester.
The lobby - in keeping with everything at the hotel - is visually stunning, large and open plan with mezzanine/viewing areas from the first floor. It combines the best of boutique elegance with the grandeur of a prestigious city centre proprty.
This is the hottest new arrival to the hotel scene in Manchester in 2008.With it's fabulous location and cutting edge design, it really does encapsulate the vibe and soul that filters through the city today. The premium accommodation suits both the discerning business and leisure traveler, there is also the added bonus of a 24 hour Crowne Plaza gym (residents only) within the hotel.This is a classy and unique addition to Manchester and highly recommended.
