“ FRENCH. Malmaison Hotel, Piccadilly, M1 3AQ. Tel: +44 (0)161 278 1000. „
Of all the hotels in Manchester, this is the one I would probably live in if I could afford it! The location is perfect - 5 minutes from Piccadilly Station, and then 5 more minutes to the Arndale shopping centre or the Northern Quarter , a place with lots of bars and restaurants. The decor in the Malmaison is beautiful and classy, and i would especially recommend it for a couples weekend away. It has a comfortable and romantic feel about it, and feels very boutique like even though it is part of a chain. There is a lovely outside area to people watch and a restaurant that do great offers and i have heard, brilliant food too. They do excellent weekend offers if you look on their website, and it is also a good business travellers hotel due to the location and facilities in the hotel. The staff are helpful and polite, as are the reservations staff on the phones - i even asked for a cheeky upgrade and was given one! There is no pool but they do have an in house spa.
