      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

      Walking to University

      This post is just to walk you through my journey to University from my flat!  It is usually to cold early in the morning to walk, so I usually take the bus!  Today the weather was bearable so I decided to make the 30-40 minute walk to the school I am attending, Manchester Metropolitan University.  Right when I step outside my flat I am standing right in front of the Holy Innocents Church of England.  This is the church I can see from my bedroom window, which is ...

After a very puzzled man and a thorough search, Nat disclosed she had bar of L'occitane soap that was not in her clear plastic bag!! Next was Bex turn, the puzzled man looked at his computer, looked at Bex and returned the bag no questions asked. It was a very pleasant flight from Manchester to Heathrow with a wonderful surprise of a bacon butty! Upon landing in Heathrow and with a long 6 ...
