"Worth every penny"
Stayed at the Macdonald quite a few times. Perfect location near Picadilly station, the Apollo and other only a short taxi ride to central Manchester. Staff are always very welcoming and the rooms are pristine and we'll kept.
My room was upgraded on arrival to a suite as there were only disabled rooms available. The room was a smoking room which had a repulsive odour. My clothes smelt the following day. The staff were very friendly.
"Old and too much inconvenience"
Strengths: The view was nice one. The breakfast was good too. The staffs are lovely. Weaknesses: Not working elevator as we had to go to our room in the 5th floor many times through stairs. Old furniture. Bad smell. Unavailability of dirty water hall in the toilet floor. Overall: I don't recommend it.
"Spacious luxury in the city centre"
I've stayed at this hotel three or four times and been impressed every time. The rooms are enormous for a city centre hotel and the views over the city or Piccadilly station are great. Beds are always comfortable and breakfast is of a high standard. The location is ideal for attending events in the centre and it's only 5 minutes from the train station. The spa is interesting, with the sauna and the ice area, but I didn't think it represented value for money, as an extra cost to use it. It's worth planning ahead to get the best price, but I will definitely stay here again.
"One night visit, everything went perfectly."
The hotel is just a short walk from Manchester Piccadilly - no need for a 25 second taxi ride. We were only in town for one night, and wanted a convenient, but nice, hotel. Reception was well staffed on arrival, and we were checked in quickly (we made an online booking). Our king room was bigger than expected, with a large bathroom with a walk in shower. Everything was great in our room - spotless, nice furniture, everything worked etc - I can't find anything to moan about! We were out all night, and when we got back at about 6am we crashed out in the very comfy bed - a bit too comfy, as we overslept and didn't have time to investigate the spa before we had to catch the train! The Macdonald is first on my list for my next trip to Manchester.
