With all the regeneration in and around the Northern Quarter, it was only a matter of time before a luxury hotel appeared in this newly-exclusive and very funky area of Manchester city centre. A boutique hotel with just 16 rooms occupying a former textile mill, this Victorian-urban gem is also home to its own cocktail bar which boasts ‘hands down’ one of the best cocktail and wine menus in Manchester, making this as much a destination for drinks as it is for overnight stays. Although if you are going to stay over here, the rooms are pretty damn exceptional, featuring lots of original exposed brick and metalwork, softened by beautiful decorative touches, clever tiling and unique decorative pieces. It’s warm, it’s luxurious and it’s very impressive. With prices starting from £99 per room per night, it’s also affordable, leaving you with just enough cash to enjoy a cocktail or two in the Plantation Bar. Effortlessly cool, beautifully furnished and super-chic – the ideal Manchester city centre hotel to entertain your escort date this evening.
Another occupant of one of Manchester city centre’s former warehouses, Native on Ducie Street is smack bang in the centre of Manchester, and a stone’s throw away from, well, everything. Winner of the Sunday Times ‘Best Hotel In The North Of England, 2019’ award, this stunning hotel has some pretty impressive credentials, which is why it’s often referred to as the go-to hotel in the city centre. With an independently run café, restaurant and bar as well as a fitness studio, Native has the feel of an exclusive apartment building rather than a hotel, with each of its rooms boasting generous living and kitchen spaces. As such, Native feels more like an urban pied-a-terre than a traditional hotel and, once installed, it’s easy to convince yourself that you are in fact a native, having nabbed yourself a luxury city pad with the accompanying city-kitty lifestyle starting at just £89 per room per night. Too cool for school.
The welcome video on Dakota’s website says it all: this is a destination hotel. The perfect pad for couples enjoying a luxury stay in Manchester city centre, Dakota hotel has exclusivity splashed all over its black and gold frontage. For those aching to live the lifestyle of the rich and famous and starting at £120 per room per night, Dakota is self-consciously marketed toward those who drive very tidy cars, wear very expensive watches and whose girlfriends look like they occupy the cover of this month’s Harper’s Bazaar. Advertising itself as ‘a modern luxury lifestyle brand’, Dakota is most definitely aspiring to be more than ‘just’ a hotel… but, terribly millennial mission statement aside, it does actually achieve what it sets out to do. Industrial, yet warm; luxurious, yet comfortable and achingly hip while also having its tongue in its cheek, Dakota definitely lives up to expectations without being too far up its own butt. Very, very nice.
