Impressive Grand Victorian – The Palace Hotel Manchester England

Reasonably Priced Enchanting Palace Hotel with a Legendary History

The Palace Hotel Manchester history covers the structure of three buildings built at different times over the years. The four-sided Clock Tower stands 217 feet tall and is one of Manchester’s celebrated skylines. The main entrance relocated under the tower while the interior courtyard donned in marble flooring and a gorgeous glass dome became the grand centerpiece. Today, staying at The Palace is reasonable, chic, and comfortable. Its elegant setting and beautiful architecture make your stay a memorable one.

The Palace of Today for Your Event

Once you pass the chandeliers, crown molding, ornamental frieze placed around the perimeter, and the flat pilasters crowned with Iconic capitals, you’ll feel like you traveled back in time, a time of grand splendor. Today the hotel stands as a testament of years past coupled with modern facilities catering to weddings, parties, and receptions. Plus, the hotel will accommodate anything from a small board meeting to a grand conference, including state of the art technology with event planners and wedding coordinators on site.

Plush Palace Hotel Guest Rooms

Each guest room is an elegant statement, some with faux fur bed topper and decorative pillows placed on white bedding, and others fitted with hues of red, black, gold, or blue fabrics. Relax and sit in the comfortable, plush seating while you watch the plasma television, or sit at the desk and catch up on email with free high-speed Internet. Finally, your room has complimentary toiletries, a safe for valuables, iron and ironing board, and a coffee and tea maker.

Explore Things to Do Within the Palace and Steps from the Palace

If you’re not spending time at the hotel participating in a Murder Mystery Weekend, afternoon tea, dining in Tempus Bar and Restaurant where fresh nutritional ingredients create delectable dishes, or staying fit in the Health Club, visit the local attractions practically right out your door. There you’ll find the Manchester Conference Center, Chinatown, Landmark Manchester Town Hall, Bridgewater Hall, and the Manchester Art Gallery.

Bottom Line:

Looking at the hotel is gratifying. Viewing the ornate and spectacular entrance and immersing yourself in the story of The Palace Hotel or attending a wedding reception, conference, or award ceremony, brings satisfaction because you made the perfect hotel choice. As a last point, the hotel is in a prime spot for touring, shopping, and dining.

Occupying one of the city’s grandest Victorian buildings, a terracotta-clad extravagance built to a design by Alfred Waterhouse in 1891, the Palace is part of a small deluxe chain.
