“Theatre Break”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2009

We stayed for one night only (Saturday) to make our trip to the Theatre that bit more special.
As a Club Hotel member I thought I would give the Edwardian Raddison a try and Was not dissapointed.
The staff were very efficient, helpful and knowledgable. The service was excellent (reminded me of my stay at the Westin New York) and the quality and cleanliness of the room was second to none. We were short of time so could'nt dine in the Restaurant but we had Room Service which was superb.

We are definitely going to stay again

  • Liked — The quality and cleanliness of the room
  • Disliked — Very busy bar on Saturday night

Myself and my fiance stayed one night at the Radisson Edwardian for my birthday celebration. Its location is superb, the building itself is magnificent (the old Free Trade Hall building) and the service is excellent. We had a courtesy call half an hour afer arriving in the room and a maid knocked on the door to see if we needed her to turn down the bed not long after we had arrived. The bathroom was beautiful (wet room style shower) and was by far the most impressive part of the room. The rest of the room was clean and luxurious (suedette roller curtains etc) but the decor was a little tired and I suppose I was expecting something amazing for a 5* hotel. It didn't quite meet my high expecations. We didn't dine at the hotel so can't comment on the food. I would reccommend this hotel but I wouldn't be happy paying more than our sunday rate that we got off the internet (120.GBP). Be careful as car parking costs a ridiculous 15.00GBP!

Had a great romantic weekend away here. The staff were very welcoming upon arrival, the rooms were lovely sheer luxury. Spa facilities were very good, jacuzzi,steam room, sauna and pool, robes were provided in deluxe rooms. One area we felt was a let down was the Opus restaurant, the service was slow and the food was nothing special for the price. The couple on the next table also agreed with us, food was bland not great. Not once did any of the staff ask if the food was OK. We would go back to the hotel but not the Opus restaurant, there are many great restaurants nearby to use instead. Cinema and parking 4 minutes walk away. Breakfast was lovely, serving staff very friendly and helpful.

One of the best hotels I have stayed in. Staff are impeccable and greet you with a hello every time you see them. Waiting staff are divine, food fantasic.
Rooms are very designer and extremely homely. Decor sublime. Thanks to all, will be visiting again.
Well done all a real credit to the North West!!! Almost as good at United!

I have stayed at the Radisson Edwardian in Manchester quite a few times and every time I visit I feel like the hotel has improved again. There are many things I like about the hotel so I always book in when I’m in the area.

The three main reasons for the repeat visits are 1) The rooms are great 2) The atmosphere in the Opus bar at night is superb 3) The staff are very good at what they do and really friendly.

I am already planning another trip in the near future.

I stayed two nights at Radisson Edwardian from the 9th January till the 11th January with a friend. The staff is very friendly and helpful, especially the concierge team that was very helpful to suggest us what to do in Manchester and where to eat. Overall the hotel looks very nice and very clean. The breakfast restaurant is maybe to small and the choice from the buffet definitely not of a 5 stars hotel but of a 4 stars. Anyway food was very good. We had a room on the 8th Floor and we had an excellent view over Manchester Central railways station and the Hilton tower. The room was very clean and also the bathroom. Bathrooms have amenities of Gilchrist and Soames that were amazing. Mini bar had a great choice and prices are ok (a coke is GBP 1,50). Room are well sized with free coffee maker. On Sunday morning at 7am we have been waked up by the fire alarm and we had to evacuate the hotel. After a wait of 20 minutes in the cold morning of Manchester we were allowed to enter in the lobby and after a wait in the lobby we were allowed to go back in our rooms (with the stairs as the hotel staff was not able to stop the fire alarm meaning that the elevators stopped). Actually we had no information from the hotel if it was a false alarm or if there was a fire, only talking with the reception desk at check out we were informed that is was a false alarm. Overall a nice experience also taking into consideration the excellent location of the hotel (in the heart of Manchester).

Dear Reviewer.
Thank you very much for taking the time to complete the review of your recent stay, and your subsequent kind comments. We are sorry that the hotel had to be evacuated on that Sunday morning it is unfortunate for you as this has never happened before in the five years the hotel has been open. However this procedures are there to protect the safety of our guests as set our by the local fire authority.
We look forward to welcoming you back to our award winning Hotel.

Stayed for 3 nights 9-12 Jan at this hotel. Room was spacious and very clean with a comfy king size bed. TV set a bit small but OK. I liked the idea with wet and dry zone for the bathroom along with complimentary bathrobes. Used the gym on one occasion and it was well equipped and in good shape, both machines, treadmills and free weights. The breakfast included was OK, but the hot items were a bit tired, though the service by the staff could not be faulted. Concierge was very helpful with restaurant recommendations and booking. The only thing that concerned me was when the fire alarm went off early one of the mornings. Being one of the first people down to the lobby since I was on a low floor the confusion among the staff on how to deal with this situation was apparent. On a direct question they could not direct me to an assembly spot, nor were any guest lists produced to tick people off. Fortunately this was a false alarm but next time maybe it won´t be and these issues need to be adressed.
