This modern hotel, which is a 10-minute walk from Media City, aims to provide everything the Millennial traveller needs. There’s a gym, library area, and shop where guests can buy drinks and snacks. The modern, minimalist style means there aren’t any unnecessary decorative extras in rooms such as rugs or artwork, while the colour scheme is neutral brown and grey tones with wooden flooring and simple crisp white linen. If you’d like a view of Salford Quays, ask for an odd-numbered room – the higher the floor, the better. Breakfast is a self-service buffet offering everything from yogurt and fruit to a cooked breakfast, as well dishes such as churros as a reminder of the brand’s Spanish roots.
