Preston has a few hotels and they seem to be fairly scattered.
The newest opened in 2011 is the Premier Inn on Corporation Street, near the railway station and university.
October 2008 is the The Legacy Preston International Hotel on Marsh Lane next to the university.
Next to the bus station, near the centre, is the Holiday Inn.
Travelodge in New Hall Lane, just out of the centre.
The Marriott is north of Preston on the A6, just north of Junction 32.
There are Premier Inns, east, next to the M6 at Junction 31a (limited access junction).
Also, west, at Lea on the A583 and south, near the A6 at Lostock Hall.
There is a Holiday Inn Express on the M6 junction 32.
The MacDonald Tickled Trout at M6 junction 31 next to the river.
Swallow Inn at M6 junction 31 near Samlesbury.
The Leyland Hotel at M6 junction 28 near Leyland.
There are a number of small establishments near the railway station going down the hill and in Fulwood on the A6. There are others I'm sure and I'll add them. Return to places within an hour of Preston
