“Terrific Location”
Reviewed 26 July 2013

Ultra modern room in this high rise hotel . Very comfortable beds.Parking is fine at one of the many private car parks to the east but probably not for safe enough to leave a new luxury brand overnight . The side of the hotel leads onto trendy street with quirky bars and restaurants and a short walk to the centre of the City .

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor to get good views of the City

Stayed here with my sister . We arrived early but could check in at eleven which was great . Fab bed and bathroom . All very clean . Great location for city centre . Only drawback is the mirror .... No mirror above desk area . Only one near bed .... Not ideal for hair or make up as very dark and awrarked when sharing a room !

A great place to stay, perfect location for attending the Robbie concert. Bedroom & Bathroom are clean & a good standard - shower was fantastic. Breakfast was buffet style and a good standard but extremely busy with few tables available.

We have just come back from Manchester having stayed there for our daughter's graduation from MMMU. We booked the holiday inn express as it was fairly central and was a good price. The hotel was a bit difficult to find initially (even though my daughter has lived in Manchester for 3 years) -its tucked away down a side street. We were early but the man on the reception desk was very helpful and we were able to check in. The rooms were very clean and the staff were really nice, polite and helpful. Breakfast was really good - lots of choice and all fresh. I would recommend this hotel for a weekend stay in Manchester

Room Tip: At the moment there is some building work on one side of the hotel so if you wanted to sleep in duri...

Absolutely fine hotel, clean and with nice touches like aircon and big shower. Breakfast was included, sausages/ beans/ scrambled eggs hot and toast / croissants as well as cereal and yoghurts. Good start to the day. Quiet location despite being a very short walk to several bars and restaurants on the High St. See my other reviews for recommendations. Spotlessly clean. Spar opposite with cash machine, alcohol etc is very handy.

Good location for both the MEN arena and shops. Rooms well designed and respectable size. Nice to have a sofa rather than one pointless chair. Breakfast is busy and not the best quality but sufficient to get you started for the day. One word of warning... the machine coffee is vile...avoid at all costs

We arrived mid- afternoon and parked in the Printworks Multi storey car park which is the nearest secure car park to the hotel. The walk from the car park to the hotel takes less than 5 minutes and sited behind the Crowne Plaza. Check-in was extremely quickly processed and we soon entered our room on the 8th floor which afforded fine views across the city. The hotel is in the Northern Quarter with its many bars and restaurants. The main shopping areas of Piccadilly, Market St, and the Arndale Centre are only a few minutes walk from the hotel. The MEN Arena is also a short walk away. Our room was quite well furnished with adequate hanging space for our 1 night stay. The bathroom also had a very good size shower cubicle. The bed was also extremely comfortable.
Breakfast the next morning in The Great Room was very busy with it becoming quite crowded in the food serving area. On nice days breakfast can also be taken on the Outside Terrace.
The hotel lift is mainly glass and became extremely unpleasant in the heat of the day this week.
This was our first visit to this relatively new Holiday Inn Express having stayed previously at the Crowne Plaza or the excellent Holiday Inn Media City.
We would not discount staying here again the future as this is one of the better hotels in the Holiday Inn Express chain.

Room Tip: Rooms on higher floors offer better views of the city.
