I recently stayed at this hotel while in Manchester meeting friends and what a great hotel it was. I normally stay at a Marriott hotel so it was the first time I've branched out and tried a Renaissance hotel although they are part of the same global brand. I needed have worried about the standards - they were just as high as a normal Marriott hotel.
My room was excellent - really big and loved having separate areas for the desk and a sitting area too (2 seat sofa and a chair) where you could sit and read the papers/watch TV. In comparison the bathroom wasn't overly big though but big enough for what is required.
There is no free internet at the hotel - its £15 a day!!!
The free shuttle (orange & green) is about a 3 min walk away either down Deansgate or along St Mary's Gate. Tip though - the buses don't start until 10am on a Sunday in case you need to get to the station earlier than that.
If like me you happen to be on a room only basis, you can save yourself a few quid by not having breakfast in the hotel but instead walking the 3 mins down Deansgate to the Witherspoon pub (it opens early) where you can get a breakfast for £3.
