We have recently spent a night at this hotel, we booked two rooms as we were taking guests. We stayed in Room 24, which was very nice and both the rooms do certainly have the "New York loft apartment" feel to them, however our windows looked out to a brick wall, which gave the room a rather gloomy feel, but after a few drinks in Manchester and crashing on the comfy bed, we did not notice. Our friends stayed in Room 18, with the twin roll-top baths, which im told were Great! On first checking in we had no problems and were served by a friendly smile as if nothing was too much trouble, but with a staff change in shift, so did the attitude.
The Rooftop lounge is great, especially on a sunny day. The pictures of the Hot Tub on the hotels website are deceiving, you could just fit 4 people in with a squeeze and it is rather off putting with the Security Camera right over the top of it!
Overall the hotel is good and very well placed in Manchester, just a minutes walk to the Opera House and 5 minutes to the heart of town, but I do feel it is overpriced £325 for the night and it does not include breakfast! I would return, but only by using there late availability page on their website!
