Acclaimed Manchester hotel, the Radisson Edwardian Free Trade Hall on Peter Street voted the city's Best Large Hotel at the Manchester Tourism Awards 2007 and Large Hotel of the Year in the North West at the Regional Tourism Awards 2007, has scooped the Silver Award at the enjoyENGLAND 2008 awards.

The Radisson Edwardian hotel, popular with business and leisure guests from British shores and further afield as well as guests of particular note and recognition from the music, film and entertainment industry, took the coveted silver award for Large Hotel of the Year at the renowned enjoyExcellence Awards. The five-star hotel walked away with joint silver award sharing the accolade with The Dorchester in London and following closely behind the gold award winner Chewton Glen Hotel in Hampshire.

For the first time ever the awards ceremony was held outside London in St Georges Hall, Liverpool in celebration of Liverpool, European City of Culture and St George's Day.

Commenting on the award, Stephen Miles, general manager of the 5* Radisson Edwardian hotel in Manchester and chairman or the Greater Manchester Hoteliers Association said:  'We are delighted that the hotel continues to be recognised for the quality of service that we offer our guests and our commitment to supporting tourism both locally and nationally.  The Radisson Edwardian hotels, both in Manchester and London, continues to champion the work of enjoyENGLAND and are proud of the part we play in boosting tourism.  This award is testament to the hard work and dedication of the team at the hotel and we are vastly proud of our achievement'.

The hotel is on the historic site of the Free Trade Hall, one of Manchester's most famous buildings and for years home to the Hallé Orchestra.  The Free Trade Hall has played an enormous role in the social and political history of the city; in later years the world's top entertainers appeared there.  So it is fitting that the hotel remains a favourite with guests such as Kylie, Beyonce, George Michael, Simon Cowell, Bill Clinton and Prime Minister Gordon Brown.

Situated in the heart of the city, the 5* hotel offers guests 263 dramatic yet indulgent rooms each containing everything expected of an award winning hotel of the finest calibre.
