overnight stay for a show

Would recommend Sun, Jul 12, 2015
We have stayed many times at this hotel when going to a show in Manchester. It is only a five minute walk to the arena and has it`s own car park.We did some shopping then had a meal before going to the Neil Diamond concert. The food was excellent, the chef was called Glen and the waitress was called Magda, both very nice people and made us feel special. The room was really nice,it had 2 double beds and an L shaped area with a sofa,chair and coffee looked as if it had been recently refurbished.Lovely white cotton bedlinen and comfy beds. HOWEVER, it was back to back with the lifts!!! The lifts were very noisy and kept whizzing up and down for hours! We were on the 8th floor in room 808 and hardly slept all night.We were really tired after the show and looking forward to a good nights sleep.We felt we just couldn't complain in the middle of the night as we were too tired to move anyway! A real let down this time!

Convenient location and comfortable hotel

Would recommend Sun, Apr 21, 2013
But best of all are the excellent staff - from the friendly and efficient reception and checkout to the excellent car service, we couldn't fault them. We were even guided to a good local restaurant by a very friendly engineer who chatted to us in the lift from the tenth floor! A real treat to find uniformly good customer care in an English hotel..

Very disappointing 4* hotel. Reception very contemporary, rooms very dated. TV big, dated v few channels. Bathroom very old and dated. Requested a king size bed given 2 doubles. Stayed in better 4 *, that have been cheaper!

My Pearl Jam Trip

Would recommend Mon, Jun 25, 2012
This hotel is a bit older than what I saw on the website. However once experienced it offers excellent service, comfort and convenience to fit your needs. I am from the US and this was my first trip to England and staying at this hotel eliminated any guess work or fears a foreign traveler may have. Although it is a bit older cosmetically, this does not take away from the service the staff provides. I was only in town for a concert at the MEN Arena and was pleasantly surprised that the Arena was just down the street only a few blocks away. EVERYTHING was a few blocks away and within walking distance. There was absolutely no way to get lost and from any given street I could see my hotel. I loved my stay here and would come back and stay again anytime. The only thing I would have to say is that the room was a little hot and the air conditioning was not very strong, however since it rained for the next couple of days of my trip I hardly noticed. :) it was a little chilly. Also the bed was absolutely comfortable and the English breakfast delicious. A bit pricey for 15 pounds which is about 26 US but I loved it. I hope to come again and will stay here, it was my little home away from home! Thank you so much Renaissance!! And thank you England for allowing me to Enjoy my favorite band in your country!!!!

Entertainment hint

I loved Frankie and Benny's which was just down the street and around the corner, and there are pubs all over within walking distance in the city.

Trip to Manchester

Would not recommend Tue, Sep 6, 2011
we were in town one night. Staff was friendly. Room was a generous size and was very clean. The location of the hotel was great for our plans and easy to get to the train station. However, no Internet included which was a major turn off!!! That is the only reason I would tell a friend to consider another hotel.

--Positive-- * Good Location * Spacious Room --Negatives-- * No Air Conditioning. The room temp (30C+) was warmer then outside, so couldn't sleep at night. Also the double glazed windows don't open. * Wasn't told that Breakfast isn't included. Also very expensive at £15 per person. * Parking was £14 per night * Outdated Furniture * Internet for £6 per hour * Old style CRT TV in a cupboard. * Unconfortable Beds

Beautiful hotel - excellent service

Would recommend Tue, Jul 13, 2010
This was a girly get away trip and the hotel could not have been more suitable to us! It was beautiful and excellent value for money. It catered for the random hours we kept in that no-one ever frowned upon us, or were rude when we came home late after a night of partying! We loved the stay and our only regret is that we never got around to dining in the hotel restaurant or drinking at the hotel bar which all looked so beautiful and trendy. I've been on many trips and in many hotels, but this hotel by far was my favorite and it really contributed a huge amount to the overall enjoyment of the trip. I will definitely be going back!
