We stayed in one of the penthouse suites, 405, which is the middle of three at the top of the building. Great design (but some windows at suite ground level viewing would've been better) and fitting out.
All lovely amenities including very well equipped refreshments tray and fab bathroom products. Flat screen tv in both lounge and bedroom.
Great service and welcome at reception and with the lovely welcome tray.
You get discounted parking at Chorlton Street parking (we didn't realise that) on validation of your ticket.
Only downside...our room WAS nice and quiet at the back, until the people next door arrived and thought they were having an electronica house party for an hour. Fortunately they'd gone out when we returned but when trying to go asleep we could hear next door's TV. So, yes lovely heavy doors.....but thin walls?
Our iPads took ages to connect to the free wi-fi but when it eventually did it was stable.
I'd stay here again but choose my room perhaps?
Great staff here, very helpful and welcoming.
