The hotel’s newly restored art-deco Ballroom can accommodate up to 1,000 seated guests and can work in connection with the Whitworth Room, which has original tiled features and columns and can work as a pre-function space or a standalone area for up to 450 delegates. 

On the second floor of the hotel, the Directors’ Suite has also been fully revamped to provide a setting for board meetings, exclusive parties and receptions for up to 100 delegates.

Simon Willis, brand director, said: "The Palace Hotel Manchester has long been an icon of the city and a treasured building enjoyed by many for a full range of corporate and private functions, so we are delighted to relaunch the events space that now reveals its original personality and soul, while bringing it thoroughly up to date for the needs of the 21st century delegate."
