There are plenty of places to lay your head for the night in Manchester, including an array of reasonably priced hotels in and around the city. For those looking for something a little more luxurious, for a special occasion or simply to treat yourself, we’ve rounded up five of the most exclusive hotels in Manchester.
Based around the Roaring ’20s, Hotel Gotham oozes sophistication from the minute you’re greeted by the well-dressed bellboy. The interior pays close homage to the Art Deco era, with decadent surroundings in all of the rooms, the foyer, the restaurant and the bar. Expect black leather bedheads, roll top baths, Egyptian cotton bed linen, and a fully stocked mini bar (that includes a ‘hangover kit’ and an ‘intimacy kit’). Both themed around money and decadence, Honey restaurant and Club Brass are two of the most exclusive venues in the city, the former only open to members and guests at the hotel.
