My friend surprised me with a weekend at the Macdonald so we could visit the Manchester Christmas markets in comfort.
We stayed in one of the panoramic suites on the 8th floor and I cannot explain how beautiful it was, the height of luxury. The bed was huge and incredibly comfortable, I didn't want to get out of it, the bathroom was also very spacious with a lovely big bathtub. In fact the room as a whole was huge.
The views were brilliant, being on the top floor we had a 180 view of Manchester which was lovely. The room had an ipod dock, a mini bar, a trouser press, complimentary toiletries, bath robes and slippers.
On one of the nights we ordered room service, which in comparison to other hotels I think had a lot more choice, we were able to order a steak at gone midnight along with the most delicious sweet potato fries. Portions weren't very big, and the price wasn't exactly cheap but that's to be expected with room service, and it was delicious so I'm not complaining!
we didn't venture into the spa, so I think that gives me an excuse to return to the hotel which is literally a stone throw away from Piccadilly station, very convenient!
overall great hotel, thoroughly enjoyed my stay and will consider the Macdonald chain for future trips.
