The Place in Manchester is excellent,it is by some distance the best of the Apartment Hotels in Manchester and would,without doubt,be my first choice each time i stay overnight in Manchester but there is one thing that prevents me staying there........the hotel doesn't want me,or rather they only want guests who stay for two nights.
The hotel increasingly is imposing a two night minimum stay which appears to be becoming the norm and this policy appears to be directly linked to anyone who is going to Manchester to watch Manchester United play football.The policy is unfair,nobody travelling from within the UK and not withtanding the delights of the city of Manchester,will want to stay for or pay for two nights.
It seems strange that even great hotels in Paris like the Ritz do not impose a minimum stay even at the height of the Paris Fashion shows or the fabulous Raphael in Paris do not do so even on the Prix De L'Arc de Triomphe.
The conclusion has to be that the Place grudgingly receives football supporters and openly admits to not applying the minimum stay for regular guests,in other words those staying in Manchester on business.How an earth can people like me become regular guests when the hotel puts up barriers to prevent me becoming one.
Putting all that to one side the Place is stylish,well located,the apartments are very large,the staff generally good.I would encourage anyone looking for an apartment in Mancheter to choose the Place.
I still take breakfast at the hotel,even though i can't stay there.Usually the breakfast is excellent but on Tuesday morning it was very poor indeed but i will not dwell upon that as it was clearly an "off day"
