The rooms at the Hotel Gotham are very nice: the beds are comfortable and come decorated with a furry blanket, the chairs and sofas are similarly plush, and there was a statue of a hand on the table in our room.
We stayed in an interior room compensated by a “window” with videos projected on it. At any point, this window could be retracted the reveal the actual TV behind it. Beyond that, the room comes with all the typical amenities one expects with a 5-star hotel room: a stocked mini bar, an opulent bathroom, interesting lighting and art on the walls, and high-end bedding.
The other notable part of the hotel I visited was the lounge, called Club Brass, which is designed to evoke the aesthetic of a 1920s speakeasy. Club Brass is well decorated and there’s lots of available seating both inside and on the three balconies. Each balcony has a unique attraction: one has telescopes through which you can view the city, one has plants, and one has tables with shade umbrellas. Club Brass serves a fairly wide variety of drinks and desserts, including a special Chinese New Year themed drink.
The Hotel Gotham seeks to draw upon a certain aesthetic to create a memorable experience while providing all the comfort of a typical hotel, and in my opinion, it succeeds. Even with only one night spent there, the hotel is emblazoned upon my memory. For the memorable aesthetic and the comfort, I would definitely recommend Hotel Gotham if you are staying in Manchester, England.
