A smart, contemporary Manchester hotel by the water with inclusive breakfast and free WiFi

Holiday Inn Express® Manchester - Salford Quays hotel overlooks the Manchester Ship Canal in the Salford Quays development, near the BBC North and ITV studios. It's a 15-minute tram ride to Manchester city centre from the nearby Salford Quays Metrolink station. The M60 and M62 motorways are a 10-minute drive from the hotel and Manchester International Airport (MAN) is 20 minutes away by car.

You can hunt for bargains at the Lowry Outlet shopping centre, just a nine-minute walk from the hotel. If you've ever wondered what goes into making your favourite BBC TV programs, take a BBC tour at nearby MediaCityUK. Sports fans can go behind the scenes on a tour of Old Trafford football stadium, home to Manchester United, just a five-minute drive from the hotel.

Visiting Manchester on business? The hotel is a short walk from the production companies in MediaCityUK and a 10-minute drive from the Trafford Park industrial estate. A Metrolink station a few minutes' walk from the hotel connects you to central Manchester.

All guests wake up to an Express Start breakfast buffet, with hot and continental choices. The Great Room lounge is open 24 hours a day and is a modern, relaxed location for drinks with friends or colleagues. WiFi is free throughout the hotel, and you can park your car on-site.
