Hotel Description

In its former life as the Free Trade Hall, this stately old building bore witness to more than its share of historic moments, from political rallies and violent uprisings to, more recently, the Sex Pistols gig that spawned the Buzzcocks, the Smiths and Joy Division.

Today it’s more likely to serve as the stage for events of a more personal scale — while the classic exterior remains in place, the interior is all-new, the meeting halls replaced with cozy and contemporary hotel rooms and the sort of clubby and masculine public spaces you’d expect from a grown-up hotel like the Radisson Blu Edwardian.

We say grown-up because at bottom this is an old-fashioned luxury hotel, albeit one whose look shows the influence of the modern boutique trend toward Eastern-inflected clean-lined minimal design. Rooms, first, are loaded with all the modern conveniences and creature comforts like heaping plush beds and impeccably equipped high-tech stone bathrooms; only secondarily do they attempt anything like a design statement, and what statement they do make essentially amounts to a reminder of the value of visual restraint.

Facilities include a pool, spa and fitness center, and more meeting space than you’re likely to need. Here in Manchester city center, though, the focus is on dining and nightlife — the Opus One restaurant is one of Manchester’s hottest tickets, serving some fine modern British cuisine against a backdrop of red velvet and glossy black woodwork, while the bar, Opus Reserve, offers an impressive selection of champagnes. And if you’re the sort who’s paralyzed with mealtime indecision, the hotel’s other restaurant, Steak and Lobster, has a clever solution. There’s no menu, just a choice between mains — the options, as you've likely already guessed, are steak and lobster.
