Hotel Description

Theories both plausible and implausible abound, from the flurry of reconstruction in the aftermath of the 1996 IRA bombing to some sort of trickle-down effect associated with City and United footballers and their spendy wives. But whatever the cause, there’s no disputing the effect: Manchester’s city center is booming, not just economically but culturally as well, growing ever more sophisticated in a way that’s hard to link with government development funds.

Inevitably, then, the time is right for a clubby and funky loft-style boutique hotel, which is precisely what Great John Street is — offering a distinct alternative to the glassy luxury of the riverfront’s brash Lowry. Here a Victorian schoolhouse has been renovated in the style of a chic post-industrial residence, all grainy wood floors, brick walls and exposed beams, mixing sleek modernist fixtures and furnishings with retro references like carved headboards and claw-foot tubs.

It’s an all-suite hotel, and each suite comes with, as they used to say, all mod cons—satellite television, high-speed internet, name it. Great John Street boasts some impressive public spaces, from the posh split-level cocktail bar to the rooftop garden complete with outdoor hot tub. And just as vital to this sort of hotel, it’s located in a thriving downtown district, packed with restaurants, bars and cafes, not to mention some of the best shopping this side of London.
