Santiago Calatrava's Trinity Bridge offers an elegant introduction to this striking waterside hotel, which is situated just across the River Irwell in Salford. Built in 2001 and refurbished in 2015-16, it holds 165 rooms, all furnished to a five-star standard, as well as glamorous restaurants and bars, a spa, a gym and a hair salon. Every guest is guaranteed a parking space, but it's a short walk (under ten minutes) to Manchester city centre.
