Fodor's Expert Review Native

Ducie Street Warehouse, Ducie St., Manchester, Manchester, M1 2TP, England Fodor's Choice

A charming reincarnation of a one-time cotton warehouse, Native retains its impressive original brick barrelled ceilings, exposed beams, and wrought-iron girders (now painted a hip powder-blue). Accommodations, all with compact kitchens and lounge areas, range from studios to two-bedroom duplex penthouses with private terraces affording panoramic city views. This is a particularly useful option for groups of friends traveling together, with apartments that link either via a private outer corridor or a door in the living room. Native also embraces the vibrant ground-floor Cultureplex community hangout with its live music, classes, debates, dining and drinking, its mini-cinema and outdoor terraces, and its BLOK fitness studios.
