... We had no idea of how much of one until we were walking back upstairs and saw the poster on the wall enlightening us that there was a drag show on stage every Thursday night at 9:00, and Thursday it was!


We enjoyed a great night of drinks and movies and departed the next day with a great deal of plans ahead of us. We were a little bit more prepared for what lied ahead that day as we made our way past the rainbow flags and flagrant signs. We were both taken ...

I'm. So. Tired.

To see my Grandma and Grandpa! Ps I am exhausted so don't mind my probably terrible post. Dan puts a lot of work into his blog postings but I'm not about getting stressed over my blog.

Apparently Stage 1 of the Tour kicks off today in York and the riders will see a giant swath of West and North Yorkshire. I have to admit the main focus for us what the preparation for the next day and the all important climb up Holme Moss in Stage 2. I spent the morning recovering from the rigors of the race the previous evening and relaxing. The big event during the day was lunch ...

... huge number of people come to visit at that time (35,000, we heard), then the place shuts down for awhile, probably to clean up and give the staff a needed break. So our whole trip was basically constructed around the 6:15 am visit we were able to book 3 months before, at Dan's request.

There were over 20 of us from all over the world who finally (seems like they gave us a big window to get there, we could have slept in a few more ...

... beneath the clouds. All I could see now was the empty sky ahead of me. A blank canvas ready to be painted with the adventure of a lifetime. A new chapter waiting to be written. But what wonders will make up this chapter? I pondered on this before I drifted in to a deep peaceful sleep. To dream of what may lay ahead. When I would wake up I would be in Sao Paulo for the start of the World Cup in Brazil 2014. Living the dream baby ;) ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Renaissance Manchester City Centre Hotel

    Very average at best

    from

    Quite possibly the worst old worn mattress ever. This is a very sub standard Renaissance. The locations is great but that's about it. The rooms are old and worn; somewhat clean but not sparkling. I would not stay here again because of the age and condition of the furniture and bed. Marriott should be ashamed.

    Okay

    from

    Okay, functional, business-style hotel. Service is friendly and efficient and room was large and well equipped. On the downside, the en-suite bathroom looked very dated (with a cigarette burn on the plastic sink surround) and the food in the restaurant was terrible - e.g. my ceasar salad was served with grated chedder cheese over it and tasted like it had been prepared the week before it was served. No gym on-site. Overall I wouldn't say it was a bad experience, but at the same time I wouldn't stay here again as there are better hotels in Manchester.

    Great location & great hotel

    from

    My husband & I stayed at the Renaissance Manchester for 2 nights in October 2004.

    The rooms are large and we had a comfortable king size bed. The rooms have a fridge but no minibar, which we found great as we could buy a drink and actually fit it in the fridge! The bathrooms are a little tired but they still have everything required, including good shower pressure.

    The location is wonderful, just a short walk from everything. We found the staff very helpful and polite. Car parking is on site and we found the breakfast to be excellant.

    We have stayed in other hotels in Manchester and would recommend this hotel to anyone.

    Average Chain Hotel

    from

    Stayed for one night while visiting our daughter. Room was large and clean; furnishings standard; bathroom clean but unremarkable. Thought it was pricey for the quality but based on reviews of other hotels in Manchester, may be the going rate. Staff was helpful.

    Excellent!!!

    from

    Very Good Quality hotel. Peaceful, nice rooms, good service. Only down side to my stay was the valet crashing my car and trying to blame it on someone else in the car park when obviously him! Apart from that the hotel is excellent and would highly reccomed to all who stay in Manchester. WARNING, avoid the Jarvis Picadilly unless you are a cockrach, in that case its 5*!!

    Superlative!!!!!!!

    from

    I work for a group of luxury hotels in the Canary Islands, so I know my stuff. The staff are super - friendly, helpful and attentive. Nothing is too much trouble. My room was massive, with two double beds and lots of seating space. I spent six nights here and was really, really comfortable. The breakfast variety is excellent and don't forget to try the fruit smoothies! One of the nicest hotels I have stayed in in a long, long time and highly recommended.

    Impressive hotel, great staff

    from

    We stayed at the hotel over Christmas 2003 and from the moment we arrived the staff were friendly, the lobby was lovely and the room wonderful. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and they went above and beyond to make our stay special. They were wonderful with our two very small children too (ages 1 and 2) and when we requested something in our room it was always accompanied by a friendly member of staff and a little note with a chocolate. We would love to stay here again and would highly recommend it! The food is great and we got some added bouses for the price. Very attentive staff and a pleasure to stay at. It was the highlight of our stay overseas. Thank you.

    Excellent

    from

    Renaissance Hotel is just great. I've stayed there once in 2003, and I loved the stay. The food was good and the rooms were very nice with very big beds. U just need to see it for yourself.

    Pricey for what it is!

    from

    Have stayed here twice (only because work were subsidising the rooms) and have to say it is most certainly overpriced for what it is! The rooms are nice and the interior is great, don't get me wrong, I am not knocking the standard of the hotel, but you could pay much less at other hotels in the city and still get the same service. Food is overpriced and to be honest I have found most of the staff quite sharp and unhelpful (on both occasions). Had trouble parking as they have limited spaces in a local NCP, and would NOT stay here again.

    Great hotel

    from
