In Manchester for a day at the Ashes cricket and some shopping. Into the spacious reception area where we were greeted by a smiling receptionist. The Hilton Honors bit was swiftly sorted. Complimentary and password free wifi throughout the hotel. Liking it. Newspapers also complimentary.
Location was good for the station, the Metrolink and the delights of Manchester.
Our room was of a reasonable size and contained a very comfy bed, good aircon and was peacefully quiet even though we were close to the City centre.
Our fellow guests were mostly Australian and were a very friendly bunch as were the hotel staff. TV sets at reception and in the Picadilly Lounge were permanently tuned to the cricket - know your customers! One niggle in the Lounge - the seating was not comfortable being at odd angles or having little or no back support. Memo to management: Definitely room for improvement here.
Breakfast was really good, the restaurant was well and ably staffed and the food was of a very high quality - apart from hard-poached eggs.
We don't often single out individuals but Tom & Alex were outstanding in a team who set high standards. Thanks.
Very highly recommended, whatever the reason for your visit.More
