“The Principal Manchester is located in an iconic Victorian building in the centre of town. It offers elegantly appointed accommodation (no two rooms are the same) with modern furnishings echoing a classical style and original features including huge windows and wood panelling. A smart city stay.”

Principal Manchester

"Formerly The Palace hotel, this sleek option opposite Oxford Road train station occupies three of the city’s most characterful buildings – a red terracotta former insurance company HQ by Alfred Waterhouse. A hip bar and restaurant have put it squarely on the city’s nightlife map."

The Principal Manchester

"More than £25 million has been poured into a revamp of one of the grand dames of Manchester city centre; the old Palace Hotel in the opulent, Victorian gothic former offices of Refuge Assurance company close to Oxford Road station."
