Fodor's Review

Perched on a busy traffic intersection on the edge of Chester's old town, this gleaming, modern hotel from the trendy Abode chain may not occupy the city's most romantic spot, but it's well-run and comfortable. Guest rooms are spacious and quiet with huge beds. The top floor bar has sweeping views of the city; come up here for a drink in the champagne bar even if you're not dining in the adjacent Michael Caines restaurant, which serves excellent modern British food. Caines

also runs the less-formal grill on the ground floor, and the city center is a pleasant, 10-minute stroll down winding backstreets.
