First time in Manchester, so no real idea of how it was laid out. I wanted to see Old Trafford and the Lowry, so this hotel made the most sense, but it turned out was far away from any of the other 'chester sights. As I only had 1 full day, I pretty much stayed local to the hotel and had myself a time.
Local area was quiet enough at night and there's a nice little restaurant across the way. The pub in the hotel seemed like a bit of a rip off, but I have nothing else in Manchester to compare it to, so I can't say for sure.
If your target is Old Trafford or the Lowry or you're looking for somewhere quieter than the city centre, I'd recommend it, but it's quite dull around the area, particularly after around 7pm at night.
