I stayed here on business at the beginning of August for 5 nights. After arriving at reception after a 5 hour drive the receptionist was friendly and very helpful. Unfortnately the room was opposite a lift which was a but noisey. But you got great views of Manchester from the 5th floor.
I had a kingsize bed and the bathroom had a wallk in shower. The only let down was housekeeping vey lazy. Considering I ate at the desk it was never cleaned and carpet was not hoovered. The gym was good very handy after a long days work.
The hotel has no car park there is an NEC car park opposite but this is expensive. I paid 60 for 5 days (I got reimbersed by work). You do get a discount from the hotel just give them your ticket upon checkout and they will update. You will see opposite a £6 car park use that more value.
It is a 10 minute walk into the city centre where you will resturants Arndale Centre and lots more. I would defitnely stay here if I am next in the area.More
