Like much of New England, Manchester enjoys a storied history, tracing its roots back to 1672. Nearby rivers allowed the town to flourish as a center for manufacturing and shipping, with the economy centered on timber, paper, and textiles. In the early 19th century, Manchester was home to one of the young country's first successful glass works and what would become the world's largest silk factory at the time.

Today, Manchester is a growing city of nearly 60,000 residents, many of which commute to Hartford for work. However, the city has a bustling culinary and shopping scene, perfect for locals and visitors alike.

If you're planning to visit Manchester, make sure to book a hotel that fits your needs, lifestyle, and geographic preferences.

When to Visit Manchester, CT

Although New England has the dubious distinction of suffering from bitter cold in the winter, the rest of the year is temperate and inviting. Summer is the most popular time to travel to Manchester, as the sun shines frequently and temperatures hover in the mid-80s throughout the day. Nighttime is still relatively pleasant, although it can dip into the mid-60s, necessitating a jacket every now and then. Make sure to book a room early during this season, as hotels can fill quickly.

Winter can get downright chilly in Manchester. From December to February, temperatures only average highs of about 35 degrees. Throw in up to 12 inches of snow a month, and sunshine can seem like a distant afterthought. However, you can take full advantage of the winter by heading to one of the nearby ski fields or strapping on some ice skates. Hotel demand falls sharply at this time, so you might be able to snag a room with due diligence.

During fall, the weather cools down from the hot summers, often resting between the 40s and 60s. It's definitely jacket weather, but it's not cool enough to keep you from exploring the beauty of the area. Take a trek on one of the many nearby trails for some world-class leaf peeping and a backdrop of vibrant yellow, red, and orange hues. Room availability is highly dependent on the events taking place in the city or nearby towns.

Spring is another fabulous time to head to Manchester, and like fall, the temperatures stay consistently between the 40s and 60s. However, these temperatures can change quickly and without warning, and rain can fall at any time. Bring rain gear wherever you go to stay warm and dry. As far as accommodations, this time of year isn't especially busy.

Luxury Hotel Options in Manchester, CT

4 Star Average Prices: $122.85

Five-star luxury isn't easy to find in Manchester, but if you're willing to travel just 10 minutes outside the city, you're in luck. The Marriott in downtown Hartford is Connecticut's premier four-star accommodation. Built in 2005 and recently renovated, the Marriott is full of modern amenities such as a day spa, fine dining, a fitness room, spa tub, and an indoor pool. When you need a break from life, this hotel has everything you need.

After a day of pampering and relaxing, it's time to see what the surrounding area has to offer. Catch a show at the Spotlight Theater, head to a concert at the Xfinity Center, or soak up some culture at the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art. Once you get back to the hotel, dive headfirst into a super soft king or queen bed with 3,000-count linens and watch some cable programming on your flat-screen television. If you're in town on business, enjoy a cup of joe courtesy of the in-room coffee maker while you sit at a well-lit workstation.

You can eat your food in the dining room and read a free newspaper or, weather permitting, take it to go and sit in the designated picnic area.

Best Value Options in Manchester, CT

Several hotels in Manchester give you plenty of extras without draining your bank account. The Courtyard by Marriott just happens to be one of those establishments. One of its finest qualities is that it enables you to stay on site regardless of your interests. Don't feel like going out to eat? Head downstairs to the restaurant and grab a bite and follow it up with the drink at the bar and lounge. In the morning, cooked-to-order breakfasts are available to guests from 6:30 to 9:30 a.m.

If you have kids, let them blow off some steam at the indoor pool, while you relax nearby in the adjacent spa tub. The 24-hour fitness center is ideal for a morning or evening workout or, if you're a night owl, burn the midnight oil on the treadmill.

Top Attractions and Destinations in Manchester, CT

When you're visiting Manchester, you'll have no shortage of entertainment options for all ages. If you get the chance, head to Manchester during Thanksgiving. That's when the city plays host to the second-largest running event in New England. On Thanksgiving Day, over 10,000 runners from around the world race just under 5 miles. Even if you aren't running, spectators can enjoy food, entertainment, and other festivities during the race. All proceeds are donated to muscular dystrophy research.

If you have little ones, head over to the Lutz Children's Museum. This museum houses several hands-on exhibits covering art, history, ethnology, science, and nature. The crown jewel is the Main Street 1943 exhibit, which is a lifelike representation of what Manchester was like during that era. There's also a farm room, which has several small animals for children to handle and view.

After a long day of exploring Manchester, you might get a bit famished. That's when you should head over to Shady Glen. Started in 1948, this diner is a Manchester institution. It features '50s-style diner seating, complete with a counter, and serves up some of the best homemade ice cream and burgers you've ever tasted. If you order only one thing, make sure it's the Bernice Original. This 4-ounce burger with four slices of cheese may not seem like anything unusual, but the locals swear that the cheese is unlike any other in the country. Pack a pair of sweatpants for comfort after the inevitable food coma.

Whether you're coming to Manchester for a specific occasion or just passing through, the city is rife with hotels to fit your needs. From luxury options to affordable accommodations, you'll find a massive selection of hotels that will make your visit memorable.
