Hotel Gotham

28 September 2017

Housed in a Grade II listed building at the heart of the northern powerhouse city, Manchester, Hotel Gotham has developed a reputation as something of a VIP spot in the centre of town.

Designed by British architect Edwin Lutyens in 1935, the Art Deco features of this former bank were lovingly restored and turned into a seven-storey hotel in 2015.

Although there are 60 rooms and suites, this very much feels like a boutique hotel. Artfully styled and with playful nods to the building’s financial history – we loved the moneybag laundry sacks and FT-styled salmon pink Gotham Bugle hotel newspaper in our room.
With stunning views of the city courtesy of the building’s original half-moon windows, Honey Restaurant is perfect for breakfast or dinner. The menu has some really nice twists on classic local dishes (be sure to try the lamb hotpot), then follow it up at private member’s spot, Club Brass. With free entry for guests, a drink or two here is as stylish an end to the day as you can find in the city.
