Best Places To Stay After Man U game

My 17-year old son and I are coming to Great Britain for a trip to see some Premier League matches. We are planning to attend the Man U vs. QPR game in November. Looking for some recommendations for places to stay the night of the match. We are looking for a livelier part of town where football fans may be after the match. We are not looking for fancy accommodations, just clean and safe area.

Premier Inns are OK although rooms on the small side. Travelodges are the most basic of the chains and personally I wouldn't recommend them. The comments about hotel prices when United are at home are spot-on and it is sometimes difficult to find rooms in the city centre. Also bear in mind the game may well be on a Sunday or a Monday evening; I've been away and not yet picked up the tv alterations. In my view the location within the city centre isn't that significant; anywhere between the Gmex and the MEN centre is easily walkable and most of the evening eating and entertainment is in that area. Hotels nearer the ground are convenient for the trams and therefore the city centre so somewhere like the Holiday Inn at Media City is fine and rather nicer than the Premier Inns. I stay over quite often and would recommend you use the various on-line booking sites where you will sometimes find offers at selected higher rated hotels. Also try Accor Hotels who run Ibis [two convenient in city centre], Novotel and Mercure; each is pitched at a slightly different market but the overall standard is good.

They've already said who will be on on that Sunday and that Monday for TV so this game should (only should!) not be moved for that reason.

Thank you very much for your detailed answer.

The National Football museum is definitely on my to-do-list while the Imperial War Museum and Lowry Centre aren't at the moment.

I think I will take a look at the city centre hotels. Prices do not seem to be very different compared to the Salford Quays hotels but the surroundings definitely are. :)

@lancashireexile: somehow overlooked your answer. Thanks for it. It unfortunately just confirms what I thought and noticed. Hotel prices are way different to non-ManUtd-home fixtures. Just did a little comparison and prices vary a lot. Therefore I am still thinking of staying based in Liverpool. Since the question does not have anything to do with this topic, I opened a new thread for it: tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g187069-i236-k5582…

Would be great if I could get your opinion. Thanks a lot!

I happen to be going to the Nov. QPR match as well. When I went last year I stayed at the Marriott Albert & Victoria on Water Street. About a 15 minute cab ride or so form Old Trafford, but an easy walk down Quay Street to a lot of places, and only about a mile from Arndale mall.

If you do stay in the area, make sure to go to the Christmas Market in the evenings in Albert Square. Crowded as anything, but a lot of fun.
