Reviewed 29 December 2013

Have just returned from our fifth or sixth stay at the renaissance, all our other stays have been almost faultless apart from the last 2 visits, the main problem being the blocked sink which caused water to run on to the floor which then had to be soaked up with towels as the floor is tiled and can be very slippery when wet, admittedly when the problem was reported both times it was resolved very quickly but on the last visit the sink still remained slightly blocked and in obvious need of upgrading as does the whole bathroom, the rooms and corridors have obviously had a refurb so can't understand why the bathrooms haven't, on a more positive note the staff (especially the young man on the main reception) were excellent and couldn't do enough for us the breakfast was also very nice and the staff again very attentive and pleasant this and the clean and spacious rooms and of course the ideal location for the phones 4 u arena and shops is why we will be making a return visit.

Stayed here for a couple of nights as was going to a concert at the MEN, located only 5-10 minutes walk away. The reception staff couldn't have been more courteous and got us the room type we wanted (a large 6 foot bed) rather than a twin. The hotel has been recently refurbished which was noticeable in both the common areas and the rooms. Speaking of the room, it was very roomy and the layout was 'across' rather than the usual 'deep' shape. Huge amount of windows and we had a room with a view onto the canal so ask for a room on that side as there's no traffic noise from the main street Deansgate. The dinner menu seemed very limited, catering more for a snack type meal - probably as there are a plethora of restaurants on the doorstep. Breakfast was offered with a 33% discount if we ordered it when checking in - not sure if this is normal policy. Again loads of places close by for breakfast if you don't take up the hotel offer.The free shuttle bus stopped very close by which gives you free travel throughout the city - very handy indeed! Only observation would be that you can't see the green emergency exit signs from the room as they are obscured by lampshades. As airline crew, always advised to know the quickest exit if in a smoke filled corridor, indicated by the green signage. Would definitely recommend this hotel for a stay if into shopping, concerts or eating. Will certainly return soon.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the canal side away from traffic noise, higher the better

Love the Location of this hotel, the rooms are huge and very comfortable
Breakfast was buffet style and topped up regularly
Reception a bit frosty when we arrived but its Christmas week so you can forgive a little stress
Christmas decorations fantastic and the late bar was open when we returned
All in all a great experience

Stayed again at the Renaissance hotel in the heart of the city centre, the best hotel for location for shoppers in Manchester, were greeted at reception and were given an option for an upgrade and we were told the hotel had been given a full refurb which was long overdue really !!! But now it's a really nice Boutique hotel and well worth a visit. Breakfast is always good with plenty of choice available. Another plus for the hotel is the parking facility for residents which you can access by a lift to the private area reserved for the hotel guests or the Concierge will park the car for you and bring it back to the hotel main entrance.

Room Tip: we stayed on the 7th floor overlooking the canal and north Manchester, very quiet and peaceful

Huge bedroom, newly decorated but the bathroom was a bit gross and had definitely seen better days - office ceiling with stains in a £150+ a night hotel! We had just come from a great stay at a boutique hotel which was half the price and a million times better! The staff are nice and helpful and the location is great. The view was good but the windows steamed up and were really pretty gross. Breakfast should be included bus is not but the dinner we had in the bar was quite nice. Overall I don't think it is worth the cost.

Room Tip: Choose a high floor for great views!

Stayed last night with a friend for an arena concert, we arrived an got a car park pass for as long as we liked next day but at a cost of 16 pound not too bad - the hotel is very central to everything which is great.
The décor for Christmas was bright and modern and the rooms spacious and funky with orange n grey colour scheme. The staff were very attentive and helpful with advice on Manchester were to eat etc, We opted out of breakfast as at 16 pounds it's a bit steep and Maccies do a great bagel :) .
All in all a fabulous hotel just needs more biscuits with the tea one pack is a bit meagre for four star !

Really nice looking hotel. As soon as we arrived in reception to check in we were greeted with free glass of wine and mince pies (with us staying just before Christmas). Very clean. However, there was a mix up with our booking and we only had one room booked and not two. The girl serving us managed to get us a discounted rate as she could see we weren't very happy about this. She also gave our whole party free breakfasts included (which is £16 a head). Nice wide selection of food, however for a hotel like this it did taste a bit cheap.
