Yet again I check out of a hotel and the receptionist does not ask if my stay has been OK. Are receptionists too scared to ask?
This hotel is wonderful value, with great use of space, especially in the restaurant/bar; my room was extremely large, bed was so comfortable and the shower extremely powerful.
But there was no in-room safe and the windows (inner frames) were filthy. I have my doubts about housekeeping having been asked on my first morning if I was checking out; when I replied 'No', the response was ' well you won't want your room cleaned?' My room was cleaned - and to a high standard - apart from the window frames/ledges.
My rating for service reflects on check-out reception and one of the housekeeping team; it most definitely does not reflect on check-in and restaurant staff.
I'm hoping to return in 2014 and with luck management will have sorted out these minor problems.

The Renaissance has always been my preferred hotel in Central Manchester. The staff are all so friendly and helpful and will really go the "extra mile" to make you feel welcome and ensure that your stay is trouble-free. However over the past year or so, the hotel has become to look so dated.

What a pleasant surprise to return and find a major face lift - both in the public areas and restaurant and more importantly in the bedrooms. This now feels like a modern hotel with large and functional rooms. The "oh so very comfortable" Marriott beds are still here guaranteeing a good night's sleep.

This new look has most definitely put this property back at the top of my "Manchester list".

I booked 2 rooms as an anniversary present for our friends silver wedding as part of a shopping package which included breakfast, a glass of wine each and a £20 Arndale shopping voucher for an unbeliveably low price which was well worth it.
We were fortunate to get upgraded to superior rooms overlooking the city and they really were of the highest quality. The building apparently was an old office block or bank so the rooms are very spacious and well appointed.
The front desk staff were excellent and were genuinely interested in their guests and were really helpful with directions/ information.
The bar prices are a bit on the steep side but the surroundings are very pleasant and are probably worth the extra although you really are only a couple of hundred yards from many bars and restaurants which are probably better value.
The breakfast is excellent with a wide range of hot and cold items with good service from the staff.
Overall the hotel does earn its 4* rating and is really good value compared to some other hotels of a similar rating in Manchester.

Room Tip: The higher floors have great views across the City.

With a central location and a comfortable homely feel, the Renaissance is an excellent place to stay at when visiting manchester.
The rooms are clean. spacious and comfortable, and the breakfast is indeed a treat!
There is indeed slight room for improvement, but it indeed fullfills its four star rating.
Well furnished, comfortable and with an overall friendly staff - this is one place i would highly recommend.

The hotel was a decent quality 4* hotel, centrally located and with a good breakfast.

Only complaint is that despite being an entirely normal group of 20-something year olds, the staff were a little on edge with us (security watching us when we came back for a drink at 11pm and front desk looking at us suspiciously another time). These little things get noticed.

Hello fellow travellers.

Those of you who may have read a previous (not so complimentary) review of this Manchester icon can now add it to your list of possible choices.

It's had a re-furb and a well overdue make-over. Now I'm not going to say it's perfect, but it is far closer to the four star rating it now deserves. The rooms are now modern, clean and well furnished. In addition, the staff are friendlier and much more helpful - they obviously prefer working in a better environment.

So in summary, if you want a hotel a stone's throw from Harvey Nichols and centrally placed for a massive range of restaurants this is the one for you!

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the lifts - they have not been refurbed and are still a bit noisy
