I had wanted a night out in Manchester,so I booked at short notice (on the day) and got an executive double Room on the top floor for £79 (room only). There was a standard double available for £59 but I felt the small additional premium for the views over the Quays and the additional attention to detail would be worth it. the room was amazing, clean, modern and fresh and very commodious. The shower was fantastic with a large fixed overhead shower. The staff were friendly but don't expect the service of a romantic 5 star break in the Maldives. The location was great and Media City is quite impressive but the 15 minute journey on the tram into Manchester really added to the location, "The Perfect Short Stay".

Room Tip: Pay for the top floor!!

I stayed here a few months ago for business. Nice hotel friendly hotel staff. Gym was very useful and the shops/restaurants are around the corner..e.g. wagamama etc. I gave it four stars and not 5 because the lads behind the bar seemed miserable/unapproachable. Breakfast buffet well stocked. Also must say the views are great...I was waiting for the elevator to arrive and notice old trafford as I was looking out the window. You probably will bump into celebs because it is situated right next to the bbc.

Room Tip: Go for a room on the 10th floor and above for great views. If you are on the 8th floor make sure th...

I stayed here on a business trip. The hotel is very easy to find with subsidised car parking in the adjacent block above the Booth's supermarket. It's less than a 5 minute walk from the Lowry (where the work's event was being held) and across the dock from the Imperial War Museum of the North. The tram to other districts of Manchester is just a stone's throw from the front door.

The reception staff were very friendly and accommodating. The 'Green Room' is where meals are served - I only had breakfast which was quite nice for a serve-yourself meal.

The room and bathroom were immaculate - the bathroom design has to be seen!

It was a pity that I didn't have the time to explore and use all of this hotel's facilities as they looked to be more than adequate and well designed.

Being next to the new BBC studios, you never know who will pop in for breakfast - the French 'spiderman' who free climbs up buildings popped in the day I was there - I was only watching him on the BBC'S 'Breakfast' programme a few minutes earlier!

Room Tip: I was up on the 11th floor - the views across the city are amazing from up there

I sound myself in Manchester at short notice And booked at short notice . Very competitive rates and right beside BBC whom I was meeting so no taxi fare ... Even better. I decided to opt for the restaurant as a lady travelling alone and the staff were so nice . Had the special .. Fresh sole and it was very tasty .. Even though the portions were large . Comfortable room , spotlessly clean and a view of old Trafford .. Will be back

You wouldn’t ‘choose’ to stay here… it’s your typical box hotel, nothing special. However, if you want somewhere near MediaCity UK, you could not be closer, as it’s on site. The Lowry Centre, Old Trafford and The Imperial War Museum North are all close buy.

The rooms are okay, the welcome is okay, the staff are okay, the food is okay (I only had breakfast, and the coffee needs more coffee ( but is okay) and less water and the OJ needs to have been acquainted with an orange).

One odd thing; the duvet was too short, I’m not that tall. Also, get a room away from the lifts/stairs due to noise.

Nothing wrong, nothing great. I’d go back as it’s convenient.

I was stuck in the Manchester area for 2 nights because of severe weather, so I checked in to the Holiday Inn at Media City. It's a beautiful hotel with comfy rooms and really goood staff right next to the Salford Quays arts and entertainment complex. There's a tram stop right outside, good bars and restaurants and bars nearby and a fabulous Booth's supermarket next door. (If you don't come from NW England, Booths is a superb supermarket with first class food and drink, knowledgeable staff and I wish I had one in my neighbourhood).
Some reviewers have commented on the discounted parking - I didn't know about this so I left my car at Ladywell Park and Ride and took the tram.
Only negative was the breakfast buffet - the coffee was awful and the cooked food was lukewarm. Unappetising at best and potentially hazardous. Next time, I will avoid it - there's a Costa Coffee round the corner or you can buy some croissants from Booths.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the canal - the view out of the back is rather bleak. And don't book...
