About the hotel

We will be celebrating New Year’s Eve in The Refuge with a Vogue As You Are party. The restaurant is now fully booked on the 31st, but hotel guests can book tickets to the party at the special rate of £20 per person — please contact hotel directly for further details. Room rates quoted exclude entry.

For hotel residents not wishing to attend the party, there will be a residents’ bar open from 5pm. The Principal Manchester (Formally The Palace) is being given a multi-million pound facelift. Brand new, loft-style bedrooms and suites offer some of the most comfortable, distinctive and generously appointed hotel rooms in the city, with brand new beds and televisions, Neal’s Yard bathroom amenities and round-the-clock room service. You can be one of the very first guests to experience the new-look The Principal Manchester – and enjoy great value, introductory rates whilst the builders put the finishing touches to public spaces and the destination bar and restaurant, opening later this summer. Situated right in the heart of vibrant Manchester on Oxford St, sits the iconic four-star The Principal Manchester with its distinctive clock tower soaring over the Manchester skyline. For business, you are at the very centre of the commercial and business district, opposite Oxford Rd train station and just a 10 minute walk from Piccadilly station both of which are served frequently from Manchester International Airport. For short break guests, you’re in an extremely convenient location to uncover everything that Manchester has to offer. The Palace Theatre is across the road, Harvey Nichols and the main shopping district is close-by as is the Opera House, Manchester Central, the MEN Arena for world-famous concerts and Bridgewater Hall, home to the amazing Halle Orchestra. For football fanatics, Manchester is home to United and City and both stadiums can be reached easily from The Principal Manchester. Parking is available at NCP Manchester Palace Car park’ on Whitworth Street a short walk from the hotel. The reduced rate for 24 hours/Overnight car parking is £15. This is payable locally at the Hotel. ‘We will be investing in the future of this historic building to create a stunning new restaurant and destination bar. Whilst we are doing so, from January to August 2016, our current restaurant will be closed. We look forward to revealing our new look and restoring The Principal Manchester to its original glory. ’

The Principal Manchester

The hotel has recently been refurbished and it has been done beautifully.

The rooms were immaculate and had nice little touches like bottled water and fresh milk in the fridge. On arrival the receptionist upgraded us to a deluxe room as it was my partners birthday which I thought was a lovely touch. The only thing that wasn't perfect was that the bathroom only had one bath towel for the two of us and no bath mat, so this was something we had to chase up, but it was rectified promptly. Really cannot fault this hotel. We will definitely be visiting again.

Stayed in double room which was very large and clean.

Bathroom excellent

Shame the room was behind railway line as was disturbed by trains during the night.
