I will be honest with you. If I had checked more thoroughly with what was going on in Manchester that weekend, we may never have stayed in the hotel. As it turned out, the Radisson spared my blushes after we had committed ourselves to visiting the city for a family get-together; cancellation of which was not an option. With all city centre rooms in the region of £250 per night, as a result of the World Rugby League Final on the Saturday, the option of a double room at the Radisson at £86 was an acceptable alternative.
We were greeted politely and efficiently at reception, discovered that we had been allocated a very comfortable room on the eighth floor, and were pleased with the standard of both bedding, furnishings and bathroom. Parking at the hotel was £12 for a full 24 hours, so it was easy to use taxis and rail travel to get to our family do; and to go into Manchester for Christmas shopping. (Please note: the dedicated taxi service intimated proved to be quick directions to the black cabs at the station).
As an add-on,we included breakfast at £10 per head, which was a buffet served in the hotel's wine bar area. It was all right, but neither the food, nor the setting was quite up to the mark; unless you want to sit in a circular booth, and eat barely pink bacon and lukewarm scrambled eggs. Still, as an alternative to £250 a night, without breakfast, in the city, the Radisson proved to be a comfortable and affordable alternative. And very,very quiet, if you are lucky enough to get Room 801.
