Overview

Striking new hotel in Manchester's emerging cultural quarter, with contemporary interiors and a Mediterranean-inspired restaurant

The Look

A short walk from Deansgate or St Peter’s Square, the INNSIDE Manchester is a striking modern addition to England’s second city. The hotel lies just beyond the canals and railway arches that played an important role in Manchester’s industrial past, but it’s slap bang in the middle of the city’s up-and-coming cultural quarter, First Street. The angular 11-story building is painted red in homage to Manchester’s red brick landmarks, and the contemporary lobby features mammoth floor-to-ceiling windows, concrete pillars, stone floors and a glass-paneled stairway.

Bed and Bath

The clutter-free rooms all feature kingsize beds, flat-screen TVs, adjustable lighting, blackout blinds and such perks as free soft drinks from the minibar and free WiFi. The largely monochromatic color scheme is broken up by plum-colored feature walls and etchings of Manchester’s skyline on the headboards. All feature semi-open-plan bathrooms with frosted glass rainfall showers. Opt for a spacious suite (549 square feet) for a separate lounge area, a quality coffee machine, robes and slippers, and tons of storage space.

Beyond

Street on First is a bright and airy restaurant (with an alfresco terrace) that serves small plates based on the Spanish tradition of sharing. The “food for a social mood” menu concept is built on the idea there will always be enough contemporary cuisine on offer to match your frame of mind, so expect a hodgepodge of dishes including shiitake mushroom skewers, whitebait, duck broth and pork wontons, and seafood paella. Local DJs provide the tunes (even at breakfast on Thursdays and Fridays), and the bar serves bottled beers from Mancunian microbrewery Tweed.

In the Area

The hotel sits in an area that is building a reputation as the city’s vibrant entertainment quarter. The centerpiece is HOME, a newly opened cinema, theater, bar and arts destination that offers a great selection of food, beers and outdoor seating spaces. Beyond First Street, Manchester’s historic destinations, such as Albert Square, the shopping areas along Market Street, the thriving nightspots around Spinningfields, and such sporting hot spots as Old Trafford, the City of Manchester Stadium and the National Football Museum, are all within easy reach.

Modern accomodation in a great location

Centrally located, good size room, modern architecture and good vibes. AC was not working one of the nights. One of the lifts was not working for two whole days. This should have been addressed on an emrrgency basis

Amazing on the Innside!

What can I say? I've experienced one of the best hotel stays in Manchester. The room was so comfy and spacious, the power shower was a massive help. Breakfast was so so nice. For me? The highlight of the stay was the free sauna and steam room! (be sure to bring a £1 for the locker). The gym looked nice too but didn't use it sadly. I really would love to stay here again!

Terrific Modern Hotel

Was really pleasantly surprised when I arrived for my night here. Friendly staff at the desk with no issues, some nice bars and eatery’s right outside and only a few minutes from Deansgate and Oxford Road stations.

The room was brilliantly modern looking, a huge comfortable bed with a think mattress, everything was spotless and new looking. Complimentary drinks was a really nice touch along with modern lighting and an open plan style bathroom with separate doors for the shower and toilet to maximise space. A really lovely place to stay and rest.

Would really recommend this hotel and plan for this to be my place to stay in Manchester from now on!
