My wife and I recently stayed at the Mercure Manchester Piccadilly, again, for our wedding anniversary. We have stayed in this hotel a number of times in the past but, for this occasion, we upgraded to a Privilege room.
The hotel is one of the best placed in all of Manchester, overlooking Piccadilly gardens. Being a short walk from Piccadilly station and having its own car park (15 pounds overnight or 10 pounds for a day visit) there are numerous ways to reach the hotel.
Beth on reception was fantastic checking us in and was really helpful, she had us in and up to our room on the 14th floor very quickly. Special mention must also go to Jane Shaw who had assisted me in organising the room and some flowers to surprise my wife. She was a great help and made our stay even more special.
The privilege room is great, almost double to size of a standard room. It has a large, must be, king size bed, sofa and large flat screen tv. The room also has a desk and chair with large storage area and safe. Along with an ironing board/iron, nespresso machine and some robes/slippers the room is fantastic. The bathroom was spacious with a great shower too!
Due to my Accor status we enjoyed a free drink the bar which is large and well stocked. In the morning the bar converts to a restaurant where you can have a great cold or cooked breakfast, overlooking Piccadilly gardens. A tip, if still applicable when you check in, breakfast is 15 pounds but, if you purchase it before midnight the previous day there was an offer for breakfast at 7.50!
If you are thinking of staying in Manchester, make this hotel one of the first you consider.
