Native Aparthotel, Manchester
This Grade II-listed former cotton warehouse, just around the corner from Piccadilly railway station, is now a hip 166-room aparthotel. As well as stylish, spacious serviced apartments that range from studios to vast two-bedroomed penthouses, Ducie Street Warehouse is home to a boutique gym called BLOK, and CULTUREPLEX, a cultural space with a bar, restaurant, mini cinema and coffee shop. These social spaces let solo guests and business travellers mingle with trendy locals without having to leave the building. From its vast, glass-roofed atrium to its large lounge, original features are everywhere, including exposed brickwork and steel pillars, and these are matched with stylish furnishings.
Two of Manchester's most happening neighbourhoods are within easy walking distance, as are transport hubs, so you won't need a car.
Native Manchester is in the city centre, near the popular nightlife districts of Ancoats and the Northern Quarter. If you're visiting for the football, the Native is a five-minute drive from the Etihad Stadium and 15 minutes from Old Trafford.
By car: the hotel is 1 hour 45 mins from Birmingham, 2 hours 40 mins from Newcastle and 4 hours 15 mins from London. There is parking on-site costing £15 per day.
By train: London Euston to Manchester Piccadilly takes just over 2 hours. The hotel is a few minutes' walk from the station. thetrainline.com
Style & Character
With kitchenettes and a central social space that's popular with locals and residents, this is a great option for business guests. It's hard not to be wowed by the enormous glass-roofed central atrium - where the glass panels allow you to peer down at Cultureplex below.
Service & Facilities
Cultureplex holds a number of interesting events throughout the year, from open-mic storytelling and marketing talks to tarot reading.
Some rooms can feel a little dark - on longer stays, try to nab one of the loft apartments, where glass-vaulted roofs allow natural light to flood in. We love that full-sized British Bramley toiletries are used in the bathrooms, and the coffee in the kitchens is from local brand Ancoats Coffee Limited.
