Renovations make this downtown Manchester boutique hotel shine
The renovated Macdonald Townhouse Manchester offers boutique hotel accommodations in the heart of downtown. Friendly service, stylish accommodations and convenience to area attractions are all part of the package. Piccadilly Gardens and Manchester Art Gallery are within walking distance of Macdonald Townhouse. Or travel farther and faster on the nearby Metrolink train. From the exotic to classic British dishes, the 101 Brasserie has a superb menu (reservations recommended). The accompanying 101 Bar is a great spot for drinks with others.
  • Charming, heritage building
  • Complimentary Wi-Fi Internet access
  • Discounted parking
Guest rooms and suites at the Macdonald Townhouse are tasteful, comfortable and spacious. An understated color palette and simple, elegant furnishings set the stage for easy relaxation. Find large, LCD televisions, complimentary Wi-Fi Internet access, and luxury toiletries in all rooms. Upgraded amenities are included with executive rooms, and most have fantastic views of the city. Suites offer the most space, as well as all the additional luxuries of the executive rooms.

Once a cotton warehouse, the renovated Macdonald Townhouse has come a long way from its humble beginnings. This excellent downtown location is perfect for business travel or sightseeing. Do not miss having a meal at 101 Brasserie, where the menu runs the gamut from eclectic international fusion to classic British favorites. Stop into 101 Bar for a casual lunch or to unwind after a day of meetings or touring the city.


There is plenty to keep Macdonald Townhouse visitors busy in this exciting city. Shopping at Exchange Square or Arndale Centre is a must for any fashion-conscious traveler. And in a city mad about football, be sure to catch a game at Old Trafford. Cricket is another countrywide pastime, so try to see a match at Lancashire County Cricket Club. Performances at the Opera House are world class, and there is always something fascinating at the Manchester Art Gallery. Looking for something a bit different? Head over to the Water Adventure Centre where canoe and kayak adventures await.
