Best Hotels for Business Travel Manchester

Known as the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution, Manchester remains a well-established hub for business travellers around the world. Recognised for its music and sporting culture, the city has hosted major global events such as the Commonwealth Games in 2002. With sturdy infrastructure and reliable connections, Manchester is considered a popular destination for business and events travel.  

With an active development pipeline, Manchester has seen a steady growth in its hotel market over the past decade, with an impressive line-up still to open well into 2020. Despite many European cities battling constant threats from alternative accommodation providers, such as Air Bnb, these properties make up only 0.4% of residential stock in Manchester, meaning the city’s quality selection of hotels remain a preference for visitors. In 2020, the Manchester hotel market will see its largest growth in the four-star properties and serviced apartments.

With a current room supply of 18,754, Manchester ranks only second to London in available rooms. Seeing there’s an abundance of choice, we’ve listed some of the best hotels for business travel, to make your next trip to Manchester a little easier.

Below, we list some of the best hotels for business travel:
