“Great location, super comfy bed”
Reviewed 11 June 2013

I'd seen this hotel from the tram a few times, so when I needed to stay overnight near to Piccadilly station, this was an obvious choice. I've stayed in it's sister hotel in Leeds a number of times, so I'm used to the style and setup.

Quick check in and check out. As I was leaving before 7am the next morning, I didn't think I could get breakfast, as in the evening I was told breakfast was available from 7. When I checked out the next morning, it turned out the kitchen had breakfast ready, so I could have had some, had I known!

Rooms are well laid out with contemporary furniture, and very functional. Plenty of power sockets for your tech, for instance. Also well soundproofed. Couldn't hear the trams going past outside.

Super comfy bed. Didn't want to get up!

The only downside in my room is that the air-conditioning fan was making a weird noise at times, for which the staff were suitably apologetic in the morning. Luckily I didn't need to leave the a/c on overnight, just a quick blast on arrival to cool down the room from the heat of the day.

Stayed recently for one night on business.
Location is good - right beside train station and a short walk to city centre.
Public areas are pleasant - open and modern and also pretty busy.
The bar and restaurant are also pleasant - although the openness extends to the restaurant, and while eating breakfast you can be viewed by hundreds of commuters walking past the large windows from the train station to their work.
The check in was efficient and helped by a warm chocolate chip coookie!
The rooms are clean and modern although certainly on the small side. I liked the apple computer for internet access and TV.
I did however leave my iphone charger in the room after checking out and came back in the evening to see if it had been found. The helpful receptionist phoned roomkeeping to find out, but in the meantime indicated that if it hadn't turned up then I could keep one of the hotels chargers instead. It's the small things that help create a good impression....

This is an excellent hotel which is very near to Manchester station and other local amenities. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Great for a short weekend away and we benefited from a discount rate.

Stayed here while going to Bon Jovi on 8 June with another couple. We paid £95 which is reasonable for a well positioned city centre hotel, close to bars and shops, certainly walking distance. Both the room and bathroom were a little on the small side but the bed was comfortable and the bathroom clean and well designed considering the size.

The bar staff were helpful when questioned about places to eat and drink nearby and make a pretty good mojito!

Breakfast was not quite up to the usual Hilton standard but only really because it felt cramped at the buffet table and there was a fair queue. Shame there was no fried bread but my heart is probably grateful!

All staff we encountered were polite, professional and helpful. We would certainly stay here again.

Very nice hotel in great location for the railway station and Piccadilly - my sons were going to the Etihad for a concert so good location for this too. Would come back to this hotel because of the service and rooms. Got A FREE UPGRADE to executive with fabulous corner windon on a high floor - great views! for being a Gold Member which was very well received - thanks Hilton! Lunch on the patio expensive but convenient.

came here for a valentines weekend and booked it off the back of the reviews on this website!checked in early which wasn't a problem and we were given a room promptly and what a room it was,corner room which meant we had a sort of inside glass balcony and could sit outside the hotel from the comfort of our room,room itself was very nice an clean and the imac was a nice touch instead of a TV,hotel bar was very nice with friendly staff but I think his name was Ben on reception was outstanding and very helpful and even managed to get me a very short notice reservation in a very nice restaurant and plan a whole day trip out for us to old Trafford.all in all the hotel is very nice and far enough away from town to be quiet but close enough to get around easily.would recommend 100%
