Radisson are a well know brand, and the Manchester is no exception. Booking is very easy on line or via the smart phone app. On arrival, check in was smooth and efficient. The reception staff were very polite and helpful. I had a room on the fifth floor, and this was fine. There is very little noise from the city and the hotel is located close to the shops (including the Arndale Centre) and city center. It is easy to get to from the airport (about 20 minutes in a taxi) and again easy access to the main line rail station (Manchester Piccadilly). The rooms are comfortable and have all the amenities you would expect, including 24 hour room service. There is a Steak and Lobster restaurant, and this does what is says on the tin - they serve steak and lobster! It is good value, but might not suit everyone if they want a more varied selection. There is a second restaurant in the hotel for those, and this has a conventional a la carte menu. The staff are helpful and friendly, and the food is good. In the lower floor there is a spa. This is excellent, and I made use of it for an afternoon. Again, the staff are helpful, polite and friendly. There is also a swimming pool and gymnasium down there. Breakfast is served in the main restaurant, and if everyone arrives at once, then there are not enough tables to accommodate everyone. One morning I arrived with a lot of other guests, and was invited to wait on the sofas until a table was available. This was not a problem for me, but if you are in a rush to get to a meeting or catch a plane or train, it could prove to be a little nuisance. All in all, a good hotel - typical Radisson. Well located, good staff and great spa. I would be happy to stay here again, and Manchester proved to be a good place for a city break.
