The Hilton Hotel Manchester
The Hilton Hotel is Manchester’s only five-star hotel, with its own Cloud 23 bar on the 22nd floor. The building was designed by architect Ian Simpson and has a striking glass curtain wall facade that shines in the sun. Beetham Tower consists of 219 apartments and 16 penthouses – all are available for rental or purchase from £250k upwards plus service charge per year which equates to an annual ground rent equivalent to 25% of your property value. This makes it one of the most affordable options if you want luxury living just outside Central Manchester at prices comparable with other high quality developments around town such as West Point (formerly known as Salford Quays) and Spinningfields among others.”
