The Principal Manchester (Formally The Palace) has being given a multi-million pound facelift. Brand new, loft-style bedrooms and suites offer some of the most comfortable, distinctive and generously appointed hotel rooms in the city, with brand new beds and televisions, Neal s Yard bathroom amenities and round-the-clock room service. Situated right in the heart of vibrant Manchester on Oxford St, sits the iconic five - star The Principal Manchester with its distinctive clock tower soaring over the Manchester skyline. For business, you are at the very centre of the commercial and business district, opposite Oxford Rd train station and just a 10 minute walk from Piccadilly station both of which are served frequently from Manchester International Airport. For short break guests, you re in an extremely convenient location to uncover everything that Manchester has to offer. The Palace Theatre is across the road, Harvey Nichols and the main shopping district is close-by as is the Opera House, Manchester Central, the MEN Arena for world-famous concerts and Bridgewater Hall, home to the amazing Halle Orchestra. For football fanatics, Manchester is home to United and City and both stadiums can be reached easily from The Principal Manchester. Parking is available at NCP Manchester Palace Car park on Whitworth Street a short walk from the hotel. The reduced rate for 24 hours/Overnight car parking is ?15. This is payable locally at the Hotel. The Refuge by Volta is proving hugely popular. Relaxed by day, lively by night join us for globally inspired small plates, large family sharing dishes, craft beers, wines and cocktails. We strongly recommend you book a table ahead of your visit.

Reviews from visitors...

"The Hotel was good, the staff friendly and helpful, a large decadent building with windows that open, large rooms, clean with all mod cons.
