If there’s one iconic building in Manchester then it has to be the Hilton Hotel. You see its skinny tall frame hovering almost precariously above the city as your train pulls into the station.
The Hilton hotel takes up the lower 23 floors of the 47-storey Beetham Tower but this is definitely enough to offer guests phenomenal 360 degree panoramic views of the city.
With everything a five star hotel can offer, Hilton’s unique feature has to be the building itself. Its contemporary design is welcoming in the busy city and each bedroom is crisply crafted, with fantastic floor-to-ceiling windows.
Its Cloud 23 bar, aptly positioned on the 23rd floor, allows guests to savour some of its distinct cocktails whilst picking out the famous Mancunian sites at night, including, would you believe, Coronation Street.
For guests, there’s the obvious advantage of getting to enjoy its spa facilities. This is a truly pampering experience that includes a 20 metre indoor pool, with underwater viewing panels. So if you don’t want to see the city from the ground, you can see the views floating above the streets.
Located between Deansgate’s bars and the Oxford Street clubs, it’s lucky the Hilton has a 24 hour reception because after a couple of cocktails in Cloud 23 you’ll be ready to take Manchester’s nightlife by storm.
