Manchester also has dining districts, such as Hardman Square and Canal Street, where international cuisine is found in abundance: Thai, Chinese, Indian, American, Mediterranean, South American, and more. The Central Retail District harbors street vendors in every nook and cranny as well as delicious local food. Spinningfields is an area where some of Manchester's biggest events take place.

Hotels to fit every budget are scattered across the city in the various cultural areas, and while travel through the city is relatively simple, it's always fun to stay in a hotel situated near a few things that interest you. Also keep in mind that you will most likely be traveling by “tube” or train, difficult when your arms are full of packages. Whether planned or unexpected, it's something to consider when you are on foot and taking trains to and from your hotel. Not all city blocks are square, and you can't always go around the block to get where you started.

Manchester is filled with beautiful hotels at reasonable prices in close proximity to travel and attractions. Think ahead to what shopping you might do as you study the map and plan your budget and hotel. There are many hotel choices in a city as large as Manchester, so don't short-change yourself by not doing your homework. Keep in mind that when the competition is stiff, the quality often improves.

Sweater Seasons in Manchester, England

Manchester, England has a lot to offer the adventurous traveler, but smart travelers should be prepared for cooler weather. During the summer months of June, July, and August, the highest temperatures hover around 68 degrees F, quickly dropping to the 48-to-63-degree range for fall. Winter months remain temperate, however, and for the most part stay in the forties, which is nice for those who don't like freezing temperatures. Also expect rain, since there is an average of twenty days of rain every month of the year. Knowing this fact offers visitors an easy solution: bring a trench coat, sweater, umbrella and shoes that can withstand the damp. Manchester has a lot to offer, so don't let the weather stop you!

If you're feeling weather shy, don't travel in the wettest month, October, and do travel in December, when there is the most sunshine. Watch out for holiday travel, though. During Christmas season, hotels fill up fast! In February, Manchester hosts a large festival celebrating the Chinese New Year. The parades and many activities are outside, so plan to stay warm and dry when you come to this event.

There is definitely no shortage of luxury in the city of Manchester. But if you are looking for an exquisite stay, the Radisson Blu Edwardian Manchester should top your list, with rates ranging from 230 to 1500 USD for more inclusive packages.

You can also get a room for less than 100 USD per night at the MacDonald Manchester Hotel and Spa, which is only a half mile to the center of the city and near the train stop.

Manchester, United Kingdom in a nutshell

The heritage of Manchester can be summed up in one word, impressive. It is where first programmable computer and the first railway station in the globe were built and atoms were first split. This is why it's not surprising that it is the third most visited town in United Kingdom, next only to London and Edinburgh. Even if you will just stroll along the streets of the city, the architectural styles of the buildings that range from Victorian to modern will speak for themselves. Take advantage of free attractions in the city where you can have a taste of its history and culture such as the Manchester Cathedral, the Imperial War Museum and People's History Museum. Discover what role the city has played in textile and industrial revolution and football. Pay homage to the father of modern computing in Alan Turing Memorial located in Sackville Park. Explore Albert Square which houses notable edifices such as the Victorian Gothic-style Manchester Town Hall, monuments to prominent personalities like Queen Victoria, Prince Albert Robert Peel and even American President Abraham Lincoln.

'Leaving Manchester was the toughest challenge I've faced in my life. It's not just about the United, it's the city. I love the city, it's my home. It's the best city in England if you have the desire to work hard and make it big.
Danny Welbeck, a former Manchester United player who now plays for Arsenal FC expressed his love for Manchester in these words. It would be quite fair to say that he's probably not the only one to think this way about Manchester. After all, it's a city that has been known to live and breathe hard work for all these years. It is the only city in England that could give Birmingham a run for its industrial legacy. 

Manchester cotton was once the identity of this city in all of the world, especially Asia. Although many of cotton mills that literally made this city what it is today have gone cold and into foreclosure, the spirt of industrialization still is palpable through the way this city operates. 

Football is the new global face of the city now. Kids in distant African countries may not have heard of Eaton and Oxford, but they surely know what Manchester is, thanks to two of the biggest teams in the Premier League “ United and City.

If you are making a trip to Manchester to soak in all the footballing atmosphere and see the sights that lay scattered around while you are at it, you would do yourself good by getting to know quickly rudimentary information about various classes of Manchester hotels.  

Budget Stays in Manchester 

It can, at times, get difficult to find cheap hotels in big cities like London or Brighton. But it's relatively easier to find an affordable hotel that doesn't charge you for every bit of their infrastructure in a city like Manchester. 

In fact, there are over 100 bed & breakfast units operational in the city center of Manchester, making it quite easy to find rooms of one's liking, however fussy the concerned taste or requite for appeal is. 

Talking of budget hotels in Manchester, Ibis Budget Hotel is an unavoidable mention. Operated by Ibis, this budget hotel is located on the Pollard Street, one of the best neighborhoods in the city. 

Le Ville Hotel Ltd. is another budget hotel that is accessible easily from the railway station. Hotel Castlefield is a great fit for tourists who prefer quiet, isolation and peace of mind to the hustle and bustle of busy streets of Manchester. 

Living Life King Size: Manchester Edition 

Staying in a five star luxury hotel is the best part of a trip for many tourists. If you happen to be one of them, Manchester has some special ideas in store for you. 

Renaissance Manchester City Centre Hotel is a premier hotel in Manchester, located in the very middle of the city centre. It is a historical landmark of the region and is extremely welcoming of guests. 

Hotel Velvet is another beautiful property in Manchester, boasting of decor befitting high life of European royalty. Radisson Blu Edwardian is a typically lavish Radisson Blu hotel, known for its mouth-watering delicacies. Hotel Gotham is an offbeat hotel that derives its luxury straight out of the playbook of Bruce Wayne. 

In short, luxury hotels in Manchester are sure to ˜wow' the luxury seeking globetrotter inside you. 

Things to See and Do in Manchester 

When you are in Manchester, make sure that you don't get too many sights crammed in your limited schedule. The result of such exercises is often limiting and unsatisfactory. 

For football fans (make sure you don't call it ˜soccer' while you are Manchester!), a trip to the holy grail of English football “ the Old Trafford “ is a must visit place. City fans can take to the Etihad stadium to feel similar emotions.

The Museum of Science and Industry located in the city centre is another not to be missed sight. It would be better managed if you could devote one full day for the museum, especially if you are a history buff.
