“Amazing hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014

Stayed for just one night, booked online and got an amazing rate. Loved the cookies you get when you check in, and the room on the 6th floor was lovely overlooking Canal Street. You wouldn't know it was a city centre hotel as it was very quiet. Bed comfortable and all the little things you would need where provided for you. Loved the iTV was very good although I could imagine a technophobe struggling to get to grips with it. Would 100% stay here again, with such cheerful and helpful staff like they've got.

We stayed in Feb 2014 for the evening and had a fantastic time! Arrival and check in were really quick. The staff were expecting us and greeted us with a freshly baked cookie! A nice touch.
Rooms have been freshly decorated and the facilities are superb, including the usual stuff such as tea/coffee, free wifi and even an IMAC to use if necessary.
We had high expectations of breakfast, as the hotel is under the Hilton umbrella and it did not disappoint. The staff were attentive and anticipated if we needed anything such as extra juice or refills.
To top it off, we thought for comparable hotels, the Doubletree was very good value for money.

Room Tip: Try and get a higher floor for a great view of Manchester.

It is the closest access to the picadilly, which is very beneficial for business travelers. Breakfast is quick and they have plenty of options. The only item I did not like was the small size of the rooms but that is typical with other hotels in the downtown area.

Everything you need in a city hotel for either business or pleasure . We booked a quiet room on highest floor possible via booking.com & the allocated room fitted the bill exceptionally well . It's rare that I sleep well in hotels , especially in busy cities but I did here .Also given choice of pillow !
We didn't have the opportunity to enjoy the hotels facilities as we were visiting Men Arena & the only disappointed was the slow service in the bar @ 11pm on our rerun from a great concert . We waited for 10 mins & gave it up as a bad job - bar space appears to be small for size of hotel . Despite this we would still stay here again as it is located at main railway station which is good fr us & the room was superb value .

Room Tip: Tell reception what suits you for room allocation asthe time of booking .

Why is it that good reviews are so much more boring, both to read and to write than bad ones? the Germans have a word for it, I think - schadenfreude.

Well, be warned this is potentially a very boring review indeed, since this is one of the best hotels I have stayed in in the last 40 years.

Reception is fast friendly and welcoming. The public areas are spacious and comfortable.

The room was beautifully furnished with just about everything you would ever need. It was also very comfortable, which is not always the same thing. The bed was up among the best we have had in any hotel.

We were meeting my brother and his wife and when we told reception they sent up extra tea and crockery so we could all have a drink in our sitting room when they arrived.

On the subject of drinks, the mini bar is free, although there is no alcohol in it.

The wifi is also free, which is as it should be, but largely irrelevant, since each room has its own Apple computer, a joy to use after the dreaded Windows 8.

Breakfast was really excellent, with all the usual hot courses as well as every cereal you would ever want and a large choice of cakes, pastries, cold meats, cheese, fruit and yoghourt, with tea or coffee brought to your table.

Dinner was the only weak point. The chairs were too hard, the muzak far too loud and the miniscule portions of food were overpriced and undercooked. The weird combinations (like cod and ox cheeks) were rather off-putting too.

Apart from that, it just about ticks all the boxes, and we would recommend it unreservedly.

Room Tip: Tenth floor rooms are quietest and have the best views.

Very convenient location near the central shopping area, trams and buses and Piccadilly mainline station. Very friendly and efficient check in and they fully recognised our Gold HHonors status with drinks vouchers. Rooms were large enough with nice urban views over Manchester. Nice and bright and clean. Good sized bathroom with shower. Car park was in an adjacent building and was free for Gold HHonors members. Good simple breakfast. Would certainly stay here again on future visits to ventral Manchester.

Room Tip: Good views over Manchester from the higher rooms.

We've visited Manchester before and this has become our hotel of choice. Its close proximity to Picadilly station, along with the city in itself makes it an ideal place. They treat their guest in a very professional manner and tend to your needs, you can't go wrong here.
