I had booked this hotel this weekend but it was overbooked. First they told me to go wait in the bar and that they would find me a new hotel. When I asked what hotels they were gonna ring they said 3 and 4 stars and if I had any preferences (which I did) they could call them first.
When they came back to me they had one room ready for me at another hotel, Sachas Britannia. For everyone who's been to Manchester and stayed there, they can surely understand that was out of the question so I told the manager that was totally out of the question. He then came back 10 minutes later with a couple of hotels far outside the city center, to which I replied that if I wanted a hotel outside the city, I would have booked one there. After a 45 minutes wait and discussions I ended up at Abode, which I was very happy with as this is a hotel in another class than Meruce, in both standards and service but waiting 45 minutes and pushing back a dinner reservation due to this wasn't very pleasant.
