    You'll have to ask the hotel direct. I just stayed there for a break myself, nothing to do with the sales for the hotel. Enjoy your trip to Manchester though.

    The location is great ...your on top of the theatre, then mins away from the gay village , 10 mins from deansgate lots of bars on the way, then that leads into spinning fields, plus the bar in the hotel is amazing 😉
