Decided to visit Manchester and stayed at the Marriott in Spinningfield -On arrival at the hotel although we checked in earlier than the recommended 4.00pm time, we were told the rooms were available – the Concierge who checked us in had excellent customer service and made us feel welcome. The lady’s name escapes me but I highly rate her for welcoming us to Manchester. We were allowed us to check in early and we were given rooms 215 and 220. However on entering the room (220) I felt claustrophobic and the low beams did not give the room a clean feel. I knew that I would not feel comfortable and requested to change rooms. Reception were more than accommodating and allowed us to view room 420 which was excellent and had a different feel to room 220. The bigger windows and meant the room felt spacious and airy. The customer service offered by our receptionist was excellent and we were told that as we had two rooms one group would move and the other would stay. As the other room was a junior suite we decided to keep it on the 2nd floor. However the receptionist was so accommodating and without our acknowledgement was kind to offer all of us on the same level. I am annoyed I forgot her name but would like to say thank you. Whilst the Marriott boasts high standards the little extras that you would expect from the caliber of hotel lets it down. Example bread available for toasting seemed of the cheap kind and did not cater for gluten/wheat free variations. Brown sauce served in a bowl… How difficult would it be to get sachets. (Hygiene) Instant coffee in packets available was not branded however in the room Nescafe was available. Why was this different at the breakfast table? However, as a balance breakfast was excellent plentiful and varied from fruit salads to a traditional cooked breakfast. Whilst I don’t fault this hotel it really does whittle down to the small things you take for granted that perhaps you expect from a good hotel. One complaint I do have when asked about decent restaurants in the area the hotel staff seemed a bit clueless and failed to promote the excellent location of the hotel namely Spinningfelids. It was not until the following day when I checked out and explored the area I realised what a hidden gem this place was with an array of restaurants to suit the fussiest diner. The Concierge staff in particular the French gentleman was most helpful and thank you for booking our taxi. The other staff member of that night seemed a bit clueless and un-attentive and rather than tell us to go to Spinningfields he provided a list of restaurants which was full of chains. If you want to experience a hidden gem please walk to Spinningfields where you will be able to find restaurants although quiet it is worth exploring. All in all this is a great hotel and good location. Great for a weekend break.

Great weekend stay for 8 of us for my hen do. Organising was easy from the moment I contacted the hotel, to the numerous amends and organising the pre payment. I had difficulty linking all of the bookings to my Marriott rewards but on arrival reception had noticed this and completed it for me. Two rooms were ready on our arrival at 11am which was fabulous and unexpected. Rooms were lovely, beds very comfortable and breakfast was fantastic as always at a Marriott. Only one issue experienced when trying to get the key for the room that wasn't ready earlier as it was showing as unpaid due to an error in the way the prepayment had been applied. This was resolved quickly and efficiently. Location was perfect for us going to Crystal Maze and having dinner and drinks centrally. Would definitely visit again.

Another superb stay at our favorite Manchester hotel. Top service from the moment we arrived, from the concierge who remembers your name to the excellent reception staff. Little touches mean a lot. Spotlessly clean hotel, super rooms and suites and a piece of Manchester history all in one place. Lovely relaxing drink in the bar following our trip around Manchester. Great breakfast to start the day on our departure too. A great hotel to enjoy Manchester. Looking forward to coming back at Christmas for our shopping weekend. Many thanks again to all the staff. Keep up the great work.

I arrived late on Sunday to find that they held a parking sport for me right in front. A very nice service, which was only a tip of what was to follow. This hotel is obviously well managed, as the staff are all very friendly, happy, but most of all they are extremely helpful. I recommend this hotel for anyone on business, or visiting for vacation. It is ideally located for site seeing, due to its location in the heart of many of Manchester's tourist destinations.

From the moment we arrived had a feeling of being well looked after, from the Concierge staff at the desk, in fact, staff in all areas, everyone very polite and helpful. Our room was excellent as was every area in this beautiful hotel. No complaints whatsoever (okay toilet roll holder is too close when sitting on the toilet!!) and would highly recommend this hotel.

Really impressed with this Marriott by the canal.p, almost tuncked away from the sin road. The location s fery goid as bars and restaurants are all walking distance. Check in was quick and staff very helpful and the hotel had an overall boutique feel. The rooms were very good size with 2 double beds, so ideal as family room. The bathroom with nice size with good amenities. Breakfast really nice with wide range of foods available. Parking is avaiable next hotel. Very nice stay.

Me and my partner had our wedding meal in the evening at the hotel. The bar has a good selection of whiskey which was a fan of most of our guests. The breakfast has plenty of options for all the family. The rooms are amazing with wooden beams and most rooms having views of the canal, we even had chance to have a cheeky couple of pictures near the water fountain. The food was amazing from the tasty cheesecake starter to the perfectly cooked lamb. The staff at the hotel ALL are friendly and will go out of their way to help you. Even the cleaners were happy and spoke to us about our wedding. The wonderfully staff even put rose petals on our bed on our wedding day with a lovely card. They made our day extra special and we will always hold this hotel close to our hearts now.

Stayed one night at the Marriott Victoria and Albert Hotel. The room was very comfortable. Bathroom large, clean and plenty of hot water. Breakfast was a buffet but plenty of fresh cooked food and lots of different choices. Staff were very friendly and made you feel welcome.

The venue was very well presented inside. Location near city centre but area a bit iffy.. staff polite enough and food good but OMG £6.50 a pint even the bar tender apologised. felt more than a little ripped off at the prices. place ok but would book elsewhere next time

Great location, staff are always very welcoming and helpful. Check always efficient. I can leave my car and get to my meetings and pick it up late evening. The concierge always has it ready for me. A hotel I would recommend time and time again.
