Thank You for taking the time to feedback on your stay at the hotel. I am sorry that you felt the team member was rude when explaining our tiered Wi-Fi. The free Wi-Fi is not a gimmick but I appreciate lately we have had issues with the speed especially in our peak times. This is something we are updating at... More

Stayed one night on a business trip. Arrived late to an excellent and warm welcome. Nice looking hotel - looks pretty new. Rooms pretty small but very clean. Bed was poor. The side that is obviously sleet on most is broken down an bit so you slope towards the floor. I don't know why hotels don't turn the mattresses round.... More

Visit Manchester regularly for football matches. This is the first time we stayed here. We booked as part of a package. Its a nice hotel situated about 2-3 minutes walk from Piccadilly Gardens. Rooms are spotless and comfortable. Staff are very friendly. The breakfast wasn't the best but was ok. Would recommend and will definitely stay here again.

This new Holiday Inn Express is central located and easy to walk to the restaurants, markets and shops. Enjoyed the Christmas Markets throughout the city. Good standard bedrooms and good views over the city and surrounding hills. Self-service breakfast and late night bar.

We stayed here for two nights in January and it was faultless. As regulars in Manchester we have a wide frame of reference for local hotels and, in terms of value for money, this hotel is right up there. Location - perfect for the Northern Quarter, The Arndale, Market Street etc etc. Everywhere is walkable and there's lots of cheap... More

Breakfast buffet style but you would definitely find something to eat. but beware it closes dead on time. Would recommend to anyone and definitely... More

I'm not sure how IHG choose their staff in the Crowne Plaza or other Holiday Inn Express locations, but we've never have a bad stay in any of the locations. I could praise each aspect of the stay at the MEN, or simply say that it's as great as the HIE Oxford Road. It's five minutes walk from the station... More

Stayed here after going to a concert at the nearby arena. This is a lovely modern hotel although we had a room overlooking the building site. I wasn't impressed being woken up at 8.00am to the sounds on hamering and drilling. The room was spacious and very clean, bathroom was great with a huge walk-in shower. Breakfast was complimentary which... More
