Radisson Edwardian Manchester (Manchester)
Advantages: Nice Visually, Modern, Quality, Friendly Staff, Comfortable
This is my favourite hotel in the whole of Manchester its simply perfect and I will go on to tell you why!
I am into my luxury, I don't just want to stay in a bed, I want to feel comfortable and to actually enjoy my time wherever I am staying, I want it to be a pleasant experience and I like all those added extras visually.
**About the Hotel**
Unlike Premier Inns and Travelodge's the Radisson Edwardians are quite discreet well the one in Manchester is, there is not a big sign saying RADISSON EDWARDIAN, its very small so you probably wont notice it not unless you were looking.
The building is old and holds history it looks strong and located on Peter Street, in the Free Trade Hall and is situated in the heart of the city centre, directly opposite Manchester Central Convention Centre and Bridgewater Hall, close to Selfridges, Harvey Nichols and the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry and located close to all the central bars and nightclubs.
***Rooms and Rates***
I have stayed at this hotel on two different locations for 2 different reasons, one was with my husband and the other was my hen night. My last recent stay was August 2009. I have stayed in a Deluxe Twin and Deluxe Double. Rooms were immaculate, the decor was trendy and calming and there were quality fixtures and fittings in the room. Including Bang & Olufsen TV's, Quality Linen and King Size Beds.
The bathrooms are modern and so clean, with a wet and dry area, the wet area is a walk in shower with bath and the dry area is a sink and walk in wardrobe. They also provide robes in the wardrobes.
Rates vary but you will be looking to spend around £125 a night on average. The first time I stayed I paid £125 the second time I stayed I got a special rate of £83.00. It seems the earlier you book the better the rate as this hotel always seems popular. You probably won't find a cheaper rate then http://www.radissonedwardian.com/manchesteruk_edwa rdian as the prices are direct so if you see a good rate from another website its worth checking with Radisson Edwardians home page as you may find it even cheaper.
The rooms are a comfortable size and have air con and heating which you can easily adjust yourself.
They also have suites and penthouses but with my budget I don't think I will ever be experiencing those.
***WHAT THE HOTEL OFFERS***
I feel very secure in this hotel, when I go to walk in, I am greeted by a friendly gentleman all smartly dressed, opening the door saying "Hello" I immediately feel welcome and special.
When you walk in initially you are greeted with marble floors, nice quality sofas with cushions. It's gorgeous and simply stunning with Chandeliers.
Reception is quick and easy and they are also very polite, you are then given one or two cards to access your room.
As we were approaching the lift a man offered to take our bag even though we just had a small pull along suitcase, we said it was ok and we could manage but it's nice that you are asked.
One thing that was quite funny was, we were waiting for the lift to move but it wouldn't, so we were like "oh dear" are we stuck. But it's a security measure you need to put in your card and then select your floor. Which is great but also should probably be pointed out as we are not stupid but were wondering why the lift was not moving he he.
I realised we had a message on our answer phone in the room and it was from reception saying if we needed anything to be in contact and to check our room was ok.
The rooms again are very impressive and very clean.
The Hotel has a bar and restaurant called The Opus One, and also has ALTO Bar and Restaurant but I do not have any experience with going in there but I hope too next time as they looked great.
There is also a health spa with swimming pool, gym and concierge service and also wifi, and complimenty newspapers. I didn't manage to use any of these either.
Overall I am very impressed with this hotel and if you can get a good deal under £100 for a 5 star hotel even better! The Staff are well presented, polite and I feel they actually enjoy working there.
Summary: Looking to pay a little bit more this place is for you!
