Manchester is a growing center of universities, art institutions, and business. In 2007 it was viewed as the fastest growing city in England and is second only to London in the number of foreign visitors annually. The Manchester city center has been revitalized in the past decades to become an entertainment and shopping mecca, with the largest city shopping mall, the Manchester Arndale. This city has a variety of hotels that carry four and five star ratings. Suggested Manchester hotels include the five star rated Lowry A Rocco Forte Hotel and the Radisson Edwardian Manchester; the four star Abode Manchester, the Macdonald Manchester, and the Palace Hotel. All of these Manchester, England hotels have rooms that are elegant and comfortable.

For dining, the Riverbar Restaurant sits beside the river, giving guests a pleasant place to savor traditional British dishes prepared by an award winning kitchen staff.

A second five star Manchester hotel, the \Radisson Edwardian, has an impressive history. It was once the Free Trade Hall building, whose foundation stone was placed by Princess Margaret in 1950. The building was built on a site where a famous massacre, the “Peterloo Massacre” took place in the late 1800s. Later it became a place where internationally known politicians, intellectuals, and performers spoke or performed. There was a wall where everyone of note who visited the Hall signed their name. This autograph wall is still preserved in the hotel. The Radisson Edwardian was created in this famous building, after much remodeling and rearranging of artifacts to be preserved and displayed. The Radisson has twin deluxe rooms, king deluxe bedrooms, luxury suites, al fresco suites, and some rooms with handicap access bathrooms. The rooms feature cotton linen bedding, slate bathrooms, art works on the walls, wireless internet and premium televisions. The al fresco suites are designed with separate garden and seating areas. There are four luxury penthouse suites sporting incredible city views and separate sitting rooms. Dining under the tall ceiling of the Opus One Restaurant or at the informal Alto Restaurant and Bar is a savory experience one remembers. Delicious meals are prepared by professional award winning chefs.
