The past couple of weeks have been weird. I don’t know if it’s something to do with the change in weather (again) or what, but I have felt SO drained and run down. No matter how much I try and pull myself out of this ‘slump’ nothing has really worked, I just haven’t had any motivation.
So, with a couple of days off and no plans I thought I would take advantage and book a night somewhere because sometimes you just need to get away!
I have wanted to check into Hotel Gotham for sometime now but it’s often very pricey so have always just left it on my ‘bucket list’ of places to go. With so many deals around at the moment, we got a great price and finally decided to book our stay.
For those who are not familiar with Hotel Gotham; Hotel Gotham is located at 100 King Street in Manchester City Centre in the old banking quarter. The hotel is home to 60 rooms from a standard Club room to the Bank Managers suite – complete with its own roll top bath.
The carefully themed interior of the hotel and rooms is reminiscent to the golden era of 1920s New York featuring leather, furs and velvet, with brass details.

We stayed in the Executive Club room which is a larger version of the Club room. On arrival we were greeted by the friendly ‘bell boy’ who took our luggage and directed us to the elevators (the reception is located on the 6th floor). We were welcomed by the friendly staff and given a vodka infused drink on arrival. Our room was located on the first floor where we were met with our bags.
The room itself was huge. the first thing you notice is the black and grey statement carpet which is a nod to the art deco designs of the era. The king size bed was adorned with a luxurious faux fur throw and peacock print cushions and the crisp white linen contrasted with the dark interiors and black furniture.
The bathroom boasts a rainfall shower and just like the room is a decent size. It features luxury toiletries from The White Company, on top of a gold bullion which embraces the buildings history.
On the top floor of the hotel you will find Club Brass, Hotel Gotham’s very own private members’ bar, which is also open to hotel residents. Unfortunately there was a private function being held in the main area of the bar so we were directed to a smaller area.
Regardless, we enjoyed our drinks and nibbles before heading out for the evening.
Overall, Hotel Gotham was the pick me up I needed. If you get the chance to visit or are looking for somewhere to stay for a special occasion, I would definitely recommend it.
