The lobby is large, spacious and has an airy atrium with a high ceiling. A staircase leads from the lobby to the mezzanine and restaurant floor.
The hotel's facade is ultra-modern in glass and steel. There is a pedestrian area at the entrance to the hotel complex at the base of the stunning Trinity Bridge which links the hotel to Deansgate.
The rooms are the ultimate in 5-star luxury with all the technological additions you would expect of a hotel of this standard. The decor is contemporary and minimalist with neutral colours and a chaisse longue in each room.
The hotel's restaurant is Marco Pierre White's first venture outside of London. It has views over the River Irwell and offers a suprisingly good value menu, especially for Sunday lunch.
