I booked with Hotwire where you only find out where you are staying once you have booked and paid. I was allocated a room at the Mercure which was a pleasant surprise, since it is on the south side of Piccadilly Gardens and therefore at the centre of the city. I had not realised that the entrance is not on Piccadilly Gardens at all, but there is a lobby on Portland Street (which might have saved a few minutes!). I should have remembered, having stayed here before. Up in the lift to reception on the 2nd floor and I was allocated room 821 with a good view, but not too much noise from buses and trams below. A few tram squeals as they turn the corner, but nothing worth worrying about. Room reasonable size, well appointed bathroom, and I slept well. Never got to see the bar or the restaurant since I was booked room only, but checkout was not until 1200 which was good as I went out at 0720 and came back at 1145 to gather my things, and no problem storing the luggage for a few hours. All in all, a comfortable stay.
