My husband and I booked one night in the portland road, hotel, as it was very close to the phones 4 you arena, where we were going for a concert.
We booked an executive room,which was on the fifth floor. No problems with the room, it was clean and tidy and near the lift. Unfortunately the windows were single glazed and we were kept awake on and off throughout the night by someone shouting and swearing, outside. Then just has that had stopped, the fire alarm was set off twice, by another guest lighting a cigarette, so not the best night's sleep. The management, did however, put up notices, apologising for the disruption the early morning fire alarm caused, so I am guessing there must have been complaints about this.
No complaints about the breakfast, choice of cooked or continental, same layout in dining room and system of self service as in the Britania hotel in Liverpool. Staff were pleasant and polite.
Overall, hotel was adequate for our needs, ideal location for anyone attending events at the nearby phones 4 you arena, also good location for shoppers at the Arndale Centre. Breakfast and room was reasonable good and staff very pleasant and helpful.
But don't think I would stay in Manchester city centre again unless I had to, and if that was the case I would pick somewhere with double glazing, or maybe a city room, as I believe they have no windows.
