I stayed here with my husband whilst visiting Manchester for a wedding; it had been chosen by the bridal party because of it's central location so that visitors to Manchester could see the city. We had arranged an early check-in but as we arrived earlier than expected our room wasn't ready, the reception staff got a room ready for us within 20 minutes. The reception staff and concierge were very helpful and polite.
The rooms were clean, modern and well equipped with everything you would expect in a hotel of this rating. The room we were in had been recently refurbished and whilst we were staying there there was building work (re-carpeting etc ) going on in the rooms next to us. There was a little daytime noise but as we were out in the daytime it was not a problem. We did not have time to use all the facilities but the spa and pool seemed well kept and again staff were very helpful.
The best thing about the hotel was the location, it is in easy walking distance of Manchester city centre and lots of local attractions (e.g. museum of science and industry, John Rylands library) as well as shops at the Arndale centre and restaurants.
Breakfast was standard buffet and if anything overpriced (£18) even for a top hotel, there are lots of cafes, pubs and restaurants just outside the hotel offering similar food for far less.
Overall it was a good hotel in good location to get the most from Manchester city centre. I have stayed at other Radisson hotels and so far have not been disappointed. Looking at the other reviews if you shop around you can get really good deals for rooms (even with the wedding discount it was not cheap compared to other Manchester hotels, the breakfast added significantly to the price compared to other hotels) but I felt it was still worth the money to stay here.
