I stayed for a couple of nights while attending an event at the adjacent Manchester Central complex in a room on the Executive Floor with great views south toward the Peak District and Cheshire.
The rooms are modern, well furnished and seem to be well soundproofed, though a coat hook or two wouldn't go amiss, so you didn't have to hang a wet coat in your wardrobe - this is something even Premier Inn can get right!
Their 23rd floor Executive Lounge is a pleasant place for a coffee in the morning with a view of the City Centre and further North toward the Pennine Moors.
I've got three grumps:
The charge for in-room internet access is old-fashioned and usurious in 2014. £15 a day! I also happen to know, as I've enquired about running events there, that I have faster internet access to my house than they have to the hotel! I dare say the high charge is "scarcity pricing" to keep people off the network so that it doesn't grind to a halt.
Let's face it, charging extra, especially at such high prices, for internet access in this day and age is like charging for running the water taps, using the lights, or flushing the loo.
The second one is that there was something weird going on with the keycard system as both my room key and most of the others in my party stopped working part-way through the stay.
Didn't bother going up to Cloud 23 on this visit. I've been there before, and they've since changed their policy toward hotel guests who used to get queue jumping privileges. Guess their own guests aren't important now. We know where we stand.
Seriously, if they didn't sting you on the Internet access, I'd give it a 5.
