Had a weekend here with my mother. Specifically asked for a room with two beds and was not disappointed. Rather low ceilings everywhere, but this is to be expected in a converted warehouse where floors have been added, halving the original room heights. Our room was relatively spacious, very comfortable and quiet, despite being above the main entrance and bar... More

Cannot say which part is the original alehouse as the entire hotel looks historic with its low wooden ceiling. It has that charm of staying at an inn of years gone by with the service one expects from Marriott. Excellent eatery and bar next to the lobby with views of the river channel. Cozy Lounge by the reception. We had... More

Stayed here for the second time. Our Daughters were attending a concert at Phones4U Arena which was a short taxi ride and about 25 minute walk away.

Who pays for wifi these days? Seriously even Premier Inn have moved to free wi fi, so paying £15 a day is just greedy. I know this is in central Manchester but there's no on site parking.

We chose this hotel for our stay in Manchester strictly because of location. We're big Coronation Street fans and the tour, which unfortunately ends on Dec. 31, 2015, is only 2 blocks away from the hotel entrance. The hotel was once a warehouse and the ambiance reflects that. There is still a lot of wood beams as well as brickwork... More
