Well located hotel with friendly helpful staff. The building appears to have had a recent refurbishment which has been done extremely sympathetically to the original architecture. The bar and restaurants are very on message with great style. The rooms are very well presented in a contemporary style that reflects the period architecture. Would highly recommend this hotel for your city break.

Beautiful historic building
We enjoyed our stay at the Palace hotel, which felt very grand with 20 ft ceilings, newly remodeled room interiors, and new bedding, furniture, etc. The bathroom fan was constantly whistling, and we closed the door to mute that noise. The location is just across the street from train station and our windows overlooked train tracks. This did make it a bit noisy, and a set of earplugs made my sleep better. This may be a nice addition to room amenities.... The noise from the lively bar made it difficult to fall asleep with the underlying beat of music resounding through the walls. I am glad we stayed, but a different room location may have been better.

A Manchester gem!
Fantastic architecture takes your breath away, but we will remember the friendly, courteous staff, who helped make our stay. We attended an awards ceremony in the ballroom and the food and service were spot on.
