More about The Principal Manchester

An overview

Offering an extremely convenient location, this 4-star hotel with its distinctive clock tower soaring over the Manchester skyline, is found right in the heart of Manchester on Oxford Street. The Palace Theatre is across the road, Harvey Nichols and the main shopping district is close-by, and so too 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. The hotel houses one of England's largest event spaces which can comfortably cater up to 1,000 guests. There is also a fully equipped business center as well as 18 conference and event rooms. After a day of exploring this much-to-do city, the Tempus Bar & Restaurant makes for a perfect place to relax with a range of cocktails and mouthwatering dishes provided.
