Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 Valued Guests?????????
Attempted to plan 'the perfect weekend' to propose. Hotel claimed to offer everything I required, nice rooms, bar and restaurant.
Arrived to be told that we would not be able to use the restaurant as there was a function on that night............oh but I could go around the corner to Prezzos. Clearly a case of where can we get the most profit from!!!!! Would not trust what this place has to offer as you may just be surprised what you find when you arrive! why advertise something if it is not going to be used by ALL paying guests?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cubby72 Another Excellent Stay
This was our second stay at Holiday Inn Media City and it was just as good as the first time, the rooms are very comfortable and well equipped. We stay here because its convenient for the places we want to visit.
When we returned to our room late at night our television wasn't working, a member of staff came very quickly to fix it, when it seemed unfixable, we were offered an alternative room. However it rebooted while they were arranging an alternative room and we didn't need to change rooms. I can only praise the service we have received during our stays and would definitely recommend this hotel, to all our friends and family.

Great stay at Media City. We met up with friends for our annual Christmas Market weekend. Decided to stay out of the central Manchester area for a change and decided on the Holiday Inn.
Terrific hotel, quiet in the rooms, so no noise in the corridors during the night. High standard of decor and even with that many floors, the lifts seemed to cope.I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to spend time in Manchester. A taxi was £10.00, so with 4 people, very reasonable, and the tram stops almost outside the hotel. Lots of bars and restaurants locally. We paid a visit to the Lime Bar and had a great eveining.
Looking forward to going back in the spring/summer.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dwood1982 Reasonable stay
Generally a very good stay, although the staff on the front desk did make the parking policy very clear in terms of charges & ended up costing me more money that it should have done

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KarlT Great location & friendly staff
The hotel is situated right in the heart of media City next to the BBC. Perfect for the Lowry as well. There is a secure modern multi-story car park on the other side, which isn't free but guests can get a heavily discounted ticket fom reception at check out. There are also restaurants and bars within 5 minutes walk, plus a mall.
The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and the rooms are modern, clean and very comfortable. We didn't dine in the hotel, but breakfast was decent if not outstanding. There is plenty of choice. The well stocked bar was open till late and prices weren't extortionate by hotel standards. This is a great place for a nightcap after a show or night out.
If you want to venture in to the city centre the tram terminus is only a couple of minutes walk away and they run regularly until late.
All in all a great stay and very viable alternative to more expensive City centre hotels as it's far quicker to drive to and easier to park, with the tram almost on the doorstep.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Abi1972 Great modern new hotel
Easy to find, great links into Manchester city centre, only £8.80 in a taxi.
Fabulous views from the 15th floor, and lovely new, sparkling room and bathroom with well-thought out facilities. Being a girl, the powerful hairdrier was a bonus!
Staff were welcoming and attentive.
Only downside was the bar didn't stay open after 1.00 am for residents, although there were quite a few still drinking and breakfast was £10, which is a bit steep when there's a few places in the outlet mall to eat, just a short walk away and for half the price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DevaDave Very good experience
Great hotel close to Lowry for event, very nice. Comfortable beds, great views, very helpfully reception staff.
Bar manageress was very pleasant as indeed was the bar staff for our late night drink after the event.
Breakfast was very good with fresh foods coming out all the time.
I thought the coffee and tea area next to the toaster was too cluttered, perhaps move all these to the other area on a separate table, I was recently at a Hotel in Holland and they had small thermos flask for coffee on a table so customers could take the small jugs (300 ml) to their tables so you can sit enjoy breakfast without having to get up and refill the small cups.... Or offer bigger coffee mugs?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steve999 Very nice hotel
This may have been one of the quietest hotels I've every stayed at. The rooms are quite nice, very comfortable and a decent size. And despite being full up, there was virtually no noise. It's almost strange, really. Anyway, I'd rebook there in a minute, and will if in the area again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Elaine9 Great Bed, Fantastic Location
Stayed for the first time, Oct 5th to 7th 2012. Great welcome at reception, very efficient check-in. Our room on the 8th floor was immaculate with everything you needed. Only one niggle our telly remote was temperental, though we hadn't come to watch telly! Location is fantastic, right on top of tram station, only minutes to local bars and restaurants etc. And in our case just 10 minutes walk to Old Trafford. Breakfast was good with a decent selection on all fronts, though fried eggs disappeared too quickly, maybe could offer scrambled too? Big bed was so comfy with great pillows, and hotel really quiet after hours, so we spent two very peaceful nights. Again checkout was quick and efficient. Would definately recommend to anyone who asked, and we can't wait to come back next year. Thanks to all at Media City for a brilliant stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GPJH Happy to recommend
Great location - handy for the Lowry Centre where we had booked to see the RSC. Very clean and modern decor. Really great staff - friendly and helpful. The room was great but I've gone for 4 stars as the bed had a broken spring or slat which meant it caved in towards the ctnre. Not a huge problem - we mentioned it at a reception when we checked out and were offered a complimentary breakfast. - unexpected but very welcome. It's not the cheapest we've stayed in but it is next door to the BBC so priced accordingly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Reds Excellent location and top class hotel
Ideal location for celeb spotters, getting the tram into shopping centre or within easy walking distance of Old Trafford. Only grip was the bed - the mattress felt like we were rolling into the middle but other than that the accommodation was first class. We had an adjoining room to our children which was excellent. We would definately return to this hotel but would book direct as having booked for this stay via a hotel finder website we paid way over the odds for our rooms.
Bonus of stay was seeing Lemar and then Aled Jones both staying in the hotel! What more recommendation would you need when celebs are staying there!!
