Arora Review

Opposite the Manchester Art Gallery, the centrally located Arora Hotel occupies one of the city's grand Victorian buildings; its interior design, however, is minimalist modern. Chunky contemporary upholstered furnishings fill the public areas and guest rooms, where favored colors are beiges and muted reds and purples. Five rooms inspired by the veteran British crooner Sir Cliff Richard (something of a cult figure) contain artwork and memorabilia from his own collection. The luxurious bathrooms have speakers so you can listen to his tunes—or anyone else's, for that matter.
