4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Checked in quickly by friendly staff. Room extremely spacious and clean. Coffee maker, tea and coffee, chocolates on bed, water, designer toiletries in large bathroom. Close to bars shops restaurants as well as buses and trams. Highly recommended.

As others have said some parts of the hotel are a little tired, but there are obvious signs of investment, just a shame Marriott couldn't invest more, to make staying at the hotel an outstanding experience. Public areas are very clean and modern looking and guest rooms in general are of a good standard. Staff are very friendly and helpful, and especially Jez, the duty manager who went above and beyond making our stay one of the best we have had in Manchester and is a great asset to Renaissance and Marriott - thank you once again! Breakfast was OK, but not as good as on previous visits, at 7am most of the cooked breakfast items seemed to be over cooked / dried out and the plates in the plate warmer were cold. It's not just a Marriott problem, but a problem with most hotels I have stayed at in Manchester. Offer a good quality breakfast and you can easily win me over!

Upon arrival the staff were very friendly. I was given a map and showed were the places were that I wanted to visit. When I got to my room I was very happy. It was a very generous size and it was only me staying so I loved it! The bathroom was standard but very clean and the shower was lovely and warm and powerful enough too. Often hotels don't have a powerful enough shower! Toiletries were good, I always like it when there is conditioner as well as shampoo. The beds were very comfortable and I slept really well! The only thing was that the plug sockets were in awkward places and not close enough to a mirror. I was able to cope but people who have sight problems might struggle as the room was quite wide. I will definitely be returning again when I come back to manchester!

Stayed here for a family weekend in Manchester. Such a lovely hotel and the staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. The hotel was extremely busy with football goers and they handled that brilliantly. Every interaction with all members of staff was a pleasure. Special mention to David and Dean. Hotel was very clean although bathroom a little dated. Thanks for such a lovely service. We'll be booking again and recommending to others.

Stayed two nights over Easter weeekend. Great location as others have mentioned. Decoration we can understand isn't to everyone's taste but we liked it. Rooms are a little tired but downsides for us were tissue packed into the eyehole of our room rather than it being fixed - may not be the hotel but it should be checked as routine. Bathroom bin not emptied prior to our arrival and bathroom shampoos etc were left from previous guests. No wifi on Sunday morning which was disappointing. The biggest downside was the lack of sleep on Sunday night. Regrettably there was a group of young women returning to their rooms around 3am who were completely intoxicated and had no consideration for other guests. They were locking themselves out of their rooms then banging on the doors to get back in. Just when you thought sleep had got the better of them, it started again. This went on until 4.30 by which time we were wide awake. We thought many times to tackle them but they were completely inebriated. I stresss this in no way was the fault of the hotel but it does have an effect on your stay. Breakfast was efficient and staff were top notch. We would return but perhaps not on a weekend!

Spent a couple of days here for business and found hotel to be very pleasant, the service was excellent. The hotel had very recently been updated throughout. Can't fault the hotel based on my experience.

Friendly staff which made a very big difference to our 1 night stay. Very flexible to extend the check out time. I like how the staff is so helpful to attend to you when you needed their help. The staff had helped us with printing of our Europe itinerary (yes, we are very old-school and still believed in written and planned itinerary). The concierge is also helpful to help us with our luggage and when we were eating and looking for a bin, the boy at the counter just come to us with the bin. We also changed our room in less than 15 min due to the noise made by the person next to our old room. All in all, the staff are the best I have come across. The location is also great as it is near to the Corn Exchange and shopping area! Selfridges is just 5-8 minutes away. You could also get a tram nearby Selfridges to head to Old Trafford Stadium!

Well located city centre location. On site car parking which takes the stress away from trying to find somewhere to park. Staff polite and service very good. We did not eat or drink in the hotel but it appeared popular most of time during our visit. The hotel décor is looking tired and the hotel is in need of refurbishment. However, the hotel is clean and well maintained.

Lovely hotel placed in the heart of Manchester City Centre and close to all the main attractions... lovely staff and the view is quite good especially at night! Rooms have modern decor and some chocolate biscuits that make it extra worth it..

Always try to stay at the Renaissance when we are in Manchester. It's convenient, car parking easy, close to the Arena in Manchester. So no need for taxis when going to a concert or show there. Rooms are spacious, we always go for a junior suite, always spotless. Breakfast is buffet style, it's great. Staff always welcoming and friendly Never had a bad stay here.
