The Place Apartment Hotel
Lonely Planet review
Eat at the ground-floor restaurant, order room-service, cook your own dinner or eat out; the concept of an apartment hotel makes so much sense that it has taken Manchester by storm. What could be better than having the luxury of a hotel with the added comforts and flexibility of home?
The chic, spacious loft-style apartments at the Place surround a giant and rather echoey atrium with exposed metal girders. But inside, the modern units are an ideal base for anyone tired of the familiar hotel routine. For the same price as a small hotel room you'll have your own lounge and kitchen and you can flake out on the sofa, watch TV, play a DVD, listen to some music or rustle up some grub - all of it without tripping over your bag or sighing about the lacklustre decor. The apartments feature a clutter-free, minimalist mix of exposed brickwork, contemporary furniture, designer kitchens and luxury bathrooms. Grocery packages can be delivered on request, there's a daily maid service and the best the city has to offer on your doorstep. Choose to stay 'home' and chill or take on the town.
