Kimpton Clocktower

Kimpton Clocktower

Industrial Glamour In the Heart of Manchester City Centre. With its Victorian architecture and fresh approach to hospitality, Kimpton Clocktower Hotel is the perfect expression of its setting: Manchester, a city where tradition and modernity meet and where artisanship reigns supreme. Housed in a magnificent terracotta Grade II–listed building, Kimpton Clocktower has a history that dates back to 1890, when the building first opened as The Refuge Assurance Company headquarters. Today, it’s a destination where glamour and luxury meet one-of-a-kind craftsmanship and where there are new things to discover at every turn.

With its namesake clocktower, grand Victorian facade, Kimpton Clocktower Hotel impresses from the get-go, standing proudly on its street corner and distinguishing itself from its gritty surroundings. Hints of greenery, wafting music, and a Mancunian welcome from the doorman hint at what’s to come: an approachable destination that’s never stuffy, one that fuses sumptuous details (like the lobby’s beautiful glass dome and signature bronze horse sculpture) with raw, real artisan touches. Every interaction is warm yet fluff-free, making the Manchester hotel a draw for international travelers and locals alike, who come together, whisky in-hand, to breathe new life into one of the city’s most famous buildings.

Manchester Luxury Hotel Room Amenities - At Kimpton Clocktower Hotel, the warm, efficient service ensures you’ll have everything you need, whether it’s a local gift (pick one up when you swing by the corner shop for a newspaper) or a quick workout (borrow a yoga mat from your closet). For anything else, whether it’s a hair straightener or an electrical converter, flag down a team member.

Rooms & Suites - Comfortable Hotel Accommodations in Manchester - In an industrial town with a hard-working spirit, Kimpton Clocktower is a sanctuary. The guest rooms are luxurious through and through and filled with creature comforts, raw and exposed finishes, and textures layered to plush effect. They reflect the city's spirit and offer a quiet space to slow down and relax after a long day of work, sightseeing, or whatever brings you to Manchester. The accommodations at Kimpton Clocktower Hotel boast sweeping double-height windows, and many rooms have original features. With stunning architecture - the 19th-century original building, the clocktower extension, and the 1930s addition, no two recently refurbished rooms and suites are quite the same. Yet fast wifi and in-room streaming are a firm reminder of the modern-day. Be sure to look closely at the art on the walls, which expresses the anti-establishment steak from local artists.

Spread Out in the Manchester Suites - Make your stay in Manchester a little roomier by opting for one of our spacious suites. Luxurious design details and handcrafted touches add a sense of place. White-tiled bathrooms, the signature Kimpton Bed, and a record player, complete with a vinyl collection, help further the feel of an urban sanctuary. In short, this is a private, peaceful escape from the industrial, energetic city below.

Dining - Best Place to Eat in Manchester Center. A Manchester Restaurant With Vibe - ''The Refuge Dining Room'' - Curated by the award-winning team from Volta, in nearby West Didsbury, is a glam-meets-industrial destination restaurant that bring all tribes to the core of Kimpton Clocktower Hotel: local workers, city residents, visitors, business travelers, and everyone in between. The menu is eclectic, with small dishes and sharing platters that meld flavors worldwide with Mancunian style.

"Public Bar'' - Manchester Cocktail Bar on Oxford Street. With its welcome ambiance and sociable buzz, the Public Bar has become a veritable Manchester hotspot where you can play all day and stay all night. Sip cocktails, whiz through work emails, catch a live DJ, sample pours from a local brewery: You can do it all and more. Curated by two DJ-restaurateurs, the space transitions from a cafe, with specialty teas, coffees, and juice, into a drinking den as the day goes on, unveiling an eclectic wine list, local craft beers, and classic and creative cocktails.

The Capital Of Cool - Attractions And Places to Visit in Manchester - Kimpton Clocktower Hotel sprawls out on Oxford Street at the bustling heart of Manchester, a rich, complex city with cool-kid cult status. If London is refined and buttoned-up, Manchester is its more rebellious cousin. But that doesn't mean it's lacking the hallmarks of a dynamic urban center: an amazing food scene with a new crop of forward-thinking chefs, galleries and museums that celebrate local artists and makers, and quaint parks sweeping swaths of green over the gritty, industrial streetscape. Whoever you are and wherever you come from, you'll be welcomed into the textured fabric of this come-one-come-all city.

Manchester City Center - The area is abuzz with terrific restaurants, shops, galleries, and more. Manchester Arena - The city’s premier event arena is better than ever. Piccadilly Station - Journey to London, Glasgow, Edinburgh, and Beyond Manchester’s main train station. Football Stadiums - Catch live football, a quintessential Manchester experience. Northern Quarter - Manchester’s hip bohemian epicenter. Universities - Soak in Manchester’s vibrant academic culture.
