The Hilton on Deansgate is certainly a landmark building, we've stayed in several hotels in Manchester but its the first time staying here, unfortunately it was, in our opinion, below par. That's not to say that the whole experience was poor just certain aspects of the hotel we would have expected to be much better.
Staring with the positives I have to say that check in was very good, we were checked in by Caroline, who was really nice and had all the paperwork done in no time at all, coincidently she also checked us out and remembered us. The bar on the 23rd floor is worth a visit for the views across Manchester, it is quite expensive though but you would expect that. Car parking is about £15 for 24 hours and is a very short walk from the hotel, I believe valet parking is available for about £20. The location is very good, access to the city centre is easy and there are numerous restaurants and pubs close by.
The negative stuff: we had a room which was near the lifts and all we could all night long was the constant rumbling from them, it's not particularly loud but it is very intrusive. The bathroom had a weird frosted glass floor to ceiling window into the bedroom which meant the whole bedroom was lit up when the bathroom light was switched on, might not seem like a big deal but I had to use the light from phone to go to the bathroom in the night rather than waking my wife, bad design I think. Breakfast was busy but we didn't wait long for a table and again the staff were helpful but the breakfast itself wasn't good, everything was cold, we always look forward to a nice hotel breakfast but this one didn't hit the spot or even come close.
Overall I would say the Hilton is okay but not as good as you would expect, Manchester has plenty of hotels to choose from and next time we will choose somewhere else I'm afraid.
