Originally a cotton warehouse, this Grade II-listed property has been a hotel since 1982. On the exterior, it's all Victorian splendour, but a recent £3.5 million makeover has left the interior looking far more modern.
Its 85 boutique-style rooms offer free Wi-Fi, laptop safes and flatscreen TVs. Brasserie 101, on the ground floor, serves exotic dishes and contemporary British cuisine in stylish surroundings. A handy location for Canal Street, Chinatown and the City Centre.
