Perfect location with cool amenities

First of all, the cookies!! The hotel is basically across the street from the Picadilly train station, which is excellent...you can even avoid steps and street crossings altogether if you take the right path. The hotel is modern and pretty, with aesthetically appealing sitting areas and restaurants. The view out our 6th floor room was quite nice - just buildings, but still pretty. The room doesn't have a TV but has a large Mac computer. If you aren't comfortable with them, I could see this being a negative, but I love them and enjoyed being able to watch Netflix on it in addition to regular TV channels. The remote is a little finicky, but you get used to it. Our room was a twin and the two twins could be pushed together, which was great when he was napping and I wasn't. The honor bar is empty which was nice because we used it as a fridge. The bathroom sink collected and dripped water, and the faucet was sort of high, but those were the only minor negatives - great shower (no tub). Interesting but pricey room service (of course), but tons of eating opportunities in the very nearby shopping area. A few minutes from Picadilly Gardens, the Canal (gay-friendly area), the Arndale Center (a HUGE mall), and the City Centre/Printworks building and upscale King Street were maybe a 10 minute walk. Easily the nicest & most comfortable hotel on our 3 week trip through the British Isles, and we got a great deal on it!

Excellent location, just near the train station

Stopped for one night on our way to Liverpool. Perfect location, just a couple of minutes walk from the train station, and a nice stroll to the centre for shops, restaurants etc. Staff pleasant and helpful. Room clean and spacious (pillows a bit uncomfortable though!). Breakfast the next morning was lovely. Have stayed here before, and would stay again.

Almost all positive

Check-in was easy and efficient. Hotel was just a block or so of the middle of a very active downtown Manchester. No need for taxis to get around. Room was clean and well-appointed. If I had any quibble I'd note that the in-room tv was not more than about 18' or so. Reception was quite good but a bit hard to see when lying on the bed halfway across the room. Didn't use it much so not really a big deal. Water main (for sewage) broke the night I was there and could not use the shower or flush the toilet for about 4 hours. Again, not a huge hassle given that it was squared away by the time we awoke and needed to use the facilities. All in all I'd recommend.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

We ate in Manchester's Chinatown, which did not exist when I last visited. Had a nice inexpensive meal at the Happy Seasons Restaurant. Was very casual, quite crowded with a variety of locals and the menu and quality was in line with local Chinese restaurants back in the States.

A great location

Friendly staff, very helpful, room was great, so convenient for those travelling by train! The Apple Mac was very useful. We love the Macs! If you are shopping, don't forget to use the free city bus.

Great hotel, spoilt by pricing error

I cannot knock the hotel facilities or location of which both are great. The only thing that spoilt our stay was that there was a discrepancy with the original price I paid (back in January) and the price I was told I had been charged after my stay in September. When I questioned this overpayment on my behalf I was told ‘Oh it’s just the wrong price that has been put on the receipt, sir’ and then the hotel staff just walked away. I’m not sure that would have happened had I been undercharged! Quite an expensive hotel given what I’d paid, reasonable if I had been charged what the invoice said! Shame really.

Lovely breakfast at a place called Cafe Metro opposite the Arndale Centre at a fraction of the cost of the breakfast in the hotel.

Grrrrreat hotel

After the hotel changed it's name for the second time in two years, I wasa little concerned some of the standards would have slipped along the way but thankfully not. The hotel looks great, as do the rooms. The drinks in the bar were good if rather expensive. The only doenside wass the painful 6 phone calls I made trying to arrange three seperate rooms on three sperate bookings, so that we could stay in adjacent rooms. They got two of us together, but not the third. That aside, I would highly reccommend.

pre-christmas get away

This is a great hotel for exploring Manchester. It is located right beside Picadilly station and only minutes away from the shops. The rooms were big and bright, the only let down was that the bed was uncomfortable and I didn't get much sleep. My partner and I probably had the best hotel breakfast we have ever had at the hotel - the range of foods on offer was vast and the quality of food and cooking was second to none.

just perfect

super - I would come back. The breakfast room was a little overcrowded - had to queue up. And no capuchino was served on demand - "machine broken..." - what ever.
