RADISSON EDWARDIAN MANCHESTER
While most of the Radisson Edwardian exclusive boutique luxury brand hotels are in London, the Manchester Radisson Edwardian offers comfornt convenience and modern luxury located in a unique mix of the old and new in the heart of historic downtown Manchester. This new high architectural style hotel is combined with the beauty iof former Free Trade Hall facade the site of one of the great change events in social history.In 1819, not long after the Napoleon’s defeat at Waterloo, a crowd of English “radicals” gathered in St. Peters Fields Manchester to hear a speaker Henry Hunt demand reforms in England. The industrial class and land owners wanted to maintain wartime prices and the common folk sought the “radical” idea of all men being allowed the vote. The crowd was charged by horse troops, resulting in what became known as the Peterloo Massacre.
Successive buildings on the spot where associated with the idea of free trade and Manchesters growth in the industrial revolution. The building constructed in 1853 on Manchester’s Peter Street became known as the Free Trade Hall, reconstructed again after bomb damage in WWII becoming a concert hall where performers from Bob Dylan to the Sex Pistols and ABBA performed. In 1997 the aging building was demolished except for its beautiful columned façade along Peter Street which has become of signature of the Radison Edwardian Hotel in central Manchester.
The Radisson Edwardian Manchester is located within steps of the convention center as well as the Central Library at St. Peters Square and the shopping and theater complex in the former Great Northern Railways Goods Warehouse. An easy walk to Manchester’s fascinating sites like the Rylands Library and restaurants and night clubs of the revitalized Deansgate Locks and Castlefield area. Though the hotel owes some of its past character to the remaining Free Trade Hall façade enclosing one of the properties two restaurants, once inside the hotel’s style is decidedly modern, with a high atrium of elegant oriental theme. The spacious rooms and suites offer all the amenities of comfort and convenience expected of a luxury hotel.
