Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 Finding my way around Manchester
I didn't know how to find the location of the wedding and staff at reception helped me. They provided me with a map so I could walk as it was not very far away.

Rated 4,0 out of 5,0 by AlanWSW New(ish) hotel poor breakfast
Rooms are new and comfortable but hotel let down by usual Holiday Inn uninspiring breakfast. Cheap ingredients, unpleasant, overly sweet yoghurt etc... No evening meals on site but very reasonable, good quality set menu available next door at the Crowne Plaza.

Rated 4,0 out of 5,0 by Kipcol A good HI Express
Do not be put off by the entrance way - a squeeze next to the boarding up of the luxury apartments still being built.
Staff were welcoming and I appreciate getting room at 11:30
Hotel is well designed with the lifts set away from the rooms. These lifts are also between the neighbouring building works so I did not notice any noise.
Room and bathroom was spotless
Free wifi was pathetic - to access anything I had to upgrade to high speed which at 4.50 GBP per device for 24 hours is not badly priced more an annoyance.
Simple tablet device in reception for ordering a taxi was useful.
If you know Manchester then location is convenient for Arndale centre and not far to walk to the Arena (MEN, NYNEX or whatever it is called now). Hidden behind the Crowne Plaza
If you do not know Manchester then it is hidden away
