Reviewed 2 June 2009

Stayed at the Radisson Manchester for one evening on 31st may 2009. Excellent serive from reception staff, we arrived early so room not ready but no problems leaving luggage with conceirge. Excellent location meant retail therapy easily available.

Room still not available at 4pm, "servicing problem" sited as reason. Moved to alternative room without further delay. On arrival in room loud "air con" type noise from outside meant immediate return to reception where we recived apologies and accompanied to second room, which was superb and quiet. (Suggest light sleepers ask for room on GMex side of hotel - more likely to be quieter).

Liked the room very much, superb bed (2 singles togther, made as one double, meant stacks of room and comfort), en-suite with shower room and air con as standard. Usual TV, mini bar and tea making facilities.

Breakfast excellent following morning, superb choice and service. Lunch there later in day provided a very tough sirloin steak which was replaced without question and apologies received.


Amenities were very good, but due to our short stay were unable to use them all.

Best of all we liked the professionalism of staff, luxury standards and nothing we asked for was too much trouble. Some rooms can be noisy, so ask if you are a light sleeper.

Easy access to rail and bus services. Town centre and attractions a few minutes walk away.

Thank you for your very positive comments regarding your recent stay with us.

A point to note about your comments regarding the bed. The Double bed mattresses in all our rooms sit on a bed base which can fold. This may give the impression that it is two twin beds pushed together when infact they are not.

Booked this hotel a a surprise for my husband for our silver wedding and couldn`t have been happier with my choice . As a musician my husband used to play at the Free trade Hall and he was very interested to see the transformation into 5 star hotel. The general manager -Stephen Miles - gave us a fascinating book of the history of the FTH - which my husband really loved -and we were very impressed by the high quality and standard in the hotel .
All the staff were very friendly and helpful - we ate in the Opus One restaurant which was superb - the food was fantastic and there were a few little surprises given to us to celebrate our anniversary which we really appreciated .
The room was gorgeous and all fixtures and fittings were really beautiful .
All in all we had a brilliant night - we live in Manchester and this is a jewel - we will definitely be returning if only to eat in the Opus One.
Thanks to all at the hotel for a great stay

My wife and I stay regularly in Manchester and we have stayed at many hotels, including the Midland Hotel, The Deansgate Hilton and Holiday Inn Crowne Plaza, trust me that the Radisson Edwardian beats them all by a mile ! The genuine friendliness and professiional service and attentiveness of all staff shines through from start to finish. We stayed on May 23rd for one night and it was an experience we can't wait to repeat, book this hotel and you will not be disappointed, forget the Deansgate Hilton or any other hotel in Manchester, most take your business for granted, the Radisson Edawardian genuinely appreciate your custom and all staff seriously enjoy making your stay a pleasure. We will be back very soon, can't wait!

Immediately made to feel welcome by the concierge and reception staff. Modern fixtures and fittings, clean and presentable. Lift to 9th floor eminently quick. Room immaculate with good air conditioning and facilities. Leisure club well equipped though the jacuzzi and steam room could have been warmer - again though, very clean. Bar staff went the extra mile, effortlessly, to ensure my son and I were served good food from the a la carte menu at 1145pm. Going back in July and December for MEN Arena concerts...

I recently stayed at this hotel with my two sons and one of their friends.We stayed for just one night after a gig at the manchester academy. It is a very nice hotel, we usually stay at the more traditional Midland hotel. The reception staff were excellent and helpful, however we found the restaurant staff at breakfast appeared quite unfriendly and had no warmth. We probably would consider coming back again but only for short overnight stays.

For a brief overnight for business in the Manchester area this is a solid option and I was quite impressed with the overall service, ambiance and style of the place. The hotel is modern and well maintained and in a good central location. Rooms are comfortable and clean. I was most impressed with the gym which for a hotel gym (where even the best hotels have mediocre / dark / unkept gyms), the gym here was modern and very well maintained and had a nice atmosphere and good equipment.

First time to Manchester. Rarely stay at Radisson hotels anywhere. Room was of sufficient size, and bathrood good size. Bedding was a bit old as was the decor of the room and the tube television with strange remote control. Importantly, room was very quiet.

Bar downtairs was lively, and front desk personnel friendly and helpful. Radisson seems to be in the middle of the city so good location. Some night spots, restaurants, and historical places within a few blocks.

All in all, a good experience.
