Fodor's Expert Review Abode Chester

Grosvenor Rd., Chester, Cheshire West and Chester, CH1 2DJ, England

Perched at 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 as you gaze over the Chester Racecourse and the Welsh hills. There’s also a lounge bar on the ground floor. The city center is a pleasant, 10-minute stroll down winding backstreets.

  • spacious guest rooms
  • good food
  • great bar

CONS

  • lacks historic charm of older hotels
