The Grosvenor Hotel

The Grosvenor Hotel occupied the corner of Deansgate and Victoria Bridge Street close to the Cathedral and Exchange Station.

The aerial photograph below was taken in 1953.  The area marked within the red line marks the position of the Grosvenor Hotel.  You can see at the corner of Deansgate and Victoria Bridge Street, the corner tower of the hotel.

Today the site, along the River Irwell at the junction with Victoria Bridge Street and Deansgate, is occupied by the Renaissance Hotel and a multi-storey car park.
