Malmaison Manchester is a hotel for people looking for something just a little bit different. Once a 19th century warehouse, the hotel is divided up into 167 eclectic rooms to suit any budget. The ‘cosy’ rooms are just that, pretty small but nicely decorated, and starting at just £90, it’s a pretty slick shoe box to call home for a few nights. Once you start going up the price ladder, the experience gets a lot more interesting, peaking with the Baz Luhrmann-themed ‘super suites’. With an excellent bar and restaurant, Malmaison is a boutique hotel experience with a healthy dollop of the theatrical.
