We just stayed one night (two couples, two queen rooms) on room only basis, booked a few months ago for a great rate compared to similar hotels. Like previous reviewer I always ask for a high floor and we got 7th floor (think 8th was just for penthouse suite). This was totally quiet - we heard no noise from other rooms or very wide corridor and only the odd siren from outside. Lovely wall size window on one side made it nice and light with a decent view - we could see the Pennines in the distance!
Great location in Northern Quarter which is slightly away from main hustle bustle but shops (eg Arndale Centre) and restaurants and bars a stones throw away. Also close to Shudehill Metrolink (a few stops from Picadilly).
Bed was super comfortable and room layout good with clever use of mirrors and high gloss black furnishings. Bathroom well appointed including rare batha dn separate shower cubicle, nice toiletries.
Only improvement suggested would be slightly cooler air conditioning but it was a very hot day and it didn't spoil our sleep. Didn't use restaurant or bar but looked nice.
Would have no hesitation booking this hotel again.
