Pocket Guide: 5 stars Hotels in Manchester

Manchester has a long and extremely varied and colourful history that goes back to the Romans. The city has Agricola to thank for establishing it as a fortified town in 79AD, which saw the start of its long trajectory to regional importance. This reached its apex in the 18th Century when steam-powered cotton spinning machines were introduced by Richard Arkwright and various other technologies came together to create an industrial powerhouse here. Warehouses and dockyards sprang up, railways were constructed, and engineering wonders like the Manchester Ship Canal allowed for the transport of cargoes far inland to where they were needed. The best way to see the city and its fabulous industrial heritage is to stay at a Manchester five-star hotel during your visit, for the ultimate in services and facilities.

Manchester 5 Star Hotels for a Luxury Break

The heritage of the Industrial Revolution which so transformed urban landscapes in Britain lies all around for you to enjoy when you stay at a five-star hotel in Manchester. From an establishment such as The Lowry Hotel in Salford or the magnificent Radisson Blu Edwardian Manchester Hotel you'll be able to easily get to most of the city's attractions on foot. Most visitors also make a point of taking a ride on one of the trams, just for the experience. Once the old slums were finally cleared out in the middle of the last century, the way was clear for Manchester to become the great modern metropolis we see today. It's a city of vibrant nightlife, chic restaurants and great museums which showcase much of Manchester's industrial heritage.

Fun Days Out from Manchester 5 Star Hotels

Families have a fabulous time in Manchester because of the trams and museums such as the fantastic Imperial War Museum North in the city's old and magnificently rejuvenated docklands area. The city's fine Museum of Science and Industry allows visitors to gain an insight into the industrial landscape that built modern Manchester. You can see demonstrations of textile machinery in operation, for example, and get some hands-on experience of the kinds of heavy steam engines that drove the spinning machines.

Manchester 5 Star Hotels for Comfort and Culture

Five-Star hotels in Manchester will offer you every comfort and convenience, including gourmet dining and fitness facilities, often spa treatments, and high-speed WiFi will usually be complimentary. This all makes the perfect base for exploring one of the United Kingdom's premier cities and puts you close to most of the major attractions. Manchester is a supremely cultured city and there are many excellent art galleries and museums to explore, as well as some hidden gems dotted around the city that are a little off the usual tourist trail. Spend some time exploring and you're bound to uncover Manchester's quirky nature.

Don't forget to visit the City Art Galleries with its Pre-Raphaelite collections, and the Whitworth Art Gallery with its Epstein sculpture of Genesis in the entrance and Turner watercolours inside.
