“Great location and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2013 via mobile

We booked using hilton's public sector discount scheme for weekend stays inc breakfast. I have to say it was excellent value with this. As others have said it very close to the station and a short walk to the city centre. Rooms were very modern, the service very slick and professional, breakfast great and small gym to work off the excess from the night before. Could'nt ask for anything more!!

I stayed here the night before a work meeting, booking ahead however the price was not out of line with other hotels in the area.

Anyway everything about the place does leave you feeling looked after, so you can worry about what is important to you, not the little things. From the moment you check in and they offer you a cookie (or an apple if you want to be healthy!), to how the concierge desk can give you maps, directions, or just hold your luggage for a few hours without any hassle or expectation of more money.

If you want accommodation to a high standard, or have an important meeting, go here, as you won't regret it.

City break in Manchester with my best pal. Great location, v. convenient for Manchester Piccadilly station. Comfy beds, clean, good sound-proofing and good value. iMac in bedroom is a nice touch. No personality as such (apart from chic-chip cookie!), but then you've got all the personality of Manchester on your doorstep!

Literally right on the doorstep of Central Manchester! So close to everything, and just up from the train station. We parked in an NCP around the corner, less than two mins from hotel. Get hot cookies on arrival! :) Room was lovely, very clean and the service by reception and bar staff, was fabulous. Only downside was that we asked to eat at the hotel on the Saturday night (albeit on short notice), no reservation and were told the "chef is very busy" and "what would we like to eat" - well one, I'd hope that they were busy and two, we didn't have a menu so how did we know?? Anyway, we walked away and went to Abode (separately reviewed) - on the whole, the hotel was value for money and we would definitely stay again. Bar prices a tad high, but that's what you expect from a hotel bar I think!

if your arriving by train, perfect location, out of the station, over the bridge and your there...fast checkin, and you get a warm cookie....rooms are clean and comfortable, as you would expect from a chain hotel, beds comfortable, good fluffy towels. smaller tvs are used as they use the screen from an apple mac, so you can use a computer as well, tv channel selection good as they have sky sports in the rooms, free wifi in the rooms which is good, breakfast the normal buffet style, with a good selection of hot and cold offerings. Had room service, which is slightly overpriced, £4 tray charge to be added, food took 35mins to arrive, soup comes in a sauce jug to pour into your bowl, however was luke warm.....overall though a comfortable stay

We stayed here because it was near Piccadilly station but as it turns out so are Abode, Malnaison and MacDonalds.The hotel is clean, clinical and processes it's many guests efficiently. We were staying in a Queen Suite which like the hotel was clean, functional but was rather disappointing and lacked any personality. The same can be said for the hotels bars and restaurants... Nothing horrendous but nothing to commend either.We ate in the main restaurant and had a typical hotel meal....average but again nothing to commend and when compared to our delightful meal at Michael Caines in the Abode it was a real disappointment.

So if you want a business hotel which is near Piccadilly and you don't care about personality and just want a good nights sleep and a reasonable but no frills dinner, then this may be your choice. Otherwise you will find it a disappointment and maybe should choose one of its nearby competitors like we will next time.

We stayed at the Doubletree Manchester Piccadilly for a long weekend.

Travelling in by train or plane, the location is perfect. Arriving into Manchester Piccadilly station, you walk out of the doors, down the ramp, and the Doubletree is right in front of you. From the hotel, everything within the city centre is walking distance.

The hotel itself is newly built, fresh and modern as you would expect from a Hilton property. We arrived at 1pm which is two hours before the published check-in time, and they checked us in straight away without having to wait. They also give you a complimentary warm cookie which is a nice touch.

The rooms are very nicely proportioned with plenty of space, a desk and small seating area. The windows are full-height which makes it feel very upscale and gives a great view of the skyline. The rooms also include an iMac computer and free internet access which is very useful if you dont have your own computer, note that this does also act as the TV which removes the possibility of having a nice large LCD - which is sometimes nice to have and perhaps what you would usually expect.

The decor of the rooms isn't the best from a design point of view. Although the furniture is relatively new, I found the decor to be quite bland and the wood to be a very odd 'dull' almost greenish colour which is definitely not something I would choose. Some refreshed furniture with bright crisp colours would be nice, but I can only assume that he furniture is actually inherited from the previous hotel chain (before it was owned by Hilton).

The bathrooms are very modern and plush, but could be improved with a bath. The toiletries are of a very good quality, and are replaced every day.

Overall a good choice in Manchester. If you get a good price, go for it.
