Great location close to the city centre. The first impression is of a modern slick design without a lot of space and that carries through to the rooms. The ensuite shower room is like a circular pod in the room which gives it a feeling of being a bit institutional. There's not a lot of room to manoeuvre in the pod. But it was clean and the bed was comfortable.
The breakfast area gets filled up very quickly. The choice is adequate.
The service was friendly and efficient. The use of the local car park for a discounted rate is a real boon. Personally, I found the high level of security (having to use keycards to access lifts and to even get into the hotel at night) I found quite off putting. Other Manchester hotels don't impose these measures.
