The midland Hotel is situated in the Heart of Manchester. The history itself is one thing that makes it so special. Having been around for 100 years, it has been the chosen hotel for many celebrities, including Jennifer Lopez, The Beatles and Queen Elizabeth, the Queen mother. I chose this hotel because of its proximity to everything and the historic beauty both inside and out.
The main features of the Midland hotel are:
- Valet Parking
- Free internet access in the entire hotel
- Fitness Centre and Swimming Pool
- An award-winning restaurant: The French Restaurant
The rooms of the Midland also have some great features. The regular rooms include:
- En-suite bath and shower
- Tea and coffee maker
- Ironing facilities
- Television with Sky Channels
- 24-hour room service
They also offer superior rooms which have those features mentioned above plus:
- More space
- Thick and soft bathrobes
- Complementary mineral water
- Large bath and shower
Finally, their suites feature:
- Even more space
- And a view of downtown Manchester
This hotel is a favourite among many people. First of all, it has a very quick check-in, even during peak hours, and the staff has been described by many as welcoming, friendly and helpful. One customer describes having gone for a friend’s birthday, and the extra effort that was put into making her day special was remarkable.
Also, the way the rooms are decorated is really great. The hotel is a historic building, and the decor matched this theme perfectly. All the extra touches make you feel as if you were at the hotel when it first opened its doors over 100 years ago. You can also ask for a tour of the hotel, where they have stories and show you some interesting areas with historic information. The hotel has recently been renovated tastefully.
There are also many positive comments on the breakfast. They offer a choice of continental style or cooked, and there are many different things to choose from. They also have an award-winning restaurant: The French restaurant, as well as more options for food.
It is also a great place for a wedding. With their many different rooms available, guests would be amazed to be coming to this hotel. The staffs are also around to help with anything that the happy couple may need during the day and they try to make it extra special for them.
It is also a great location for those who are attending a conference or meetings at the Manchester Central Convention Complex, which is next door. And also, it is close to shops, restaurants and nightlife for those attending for pleasure.
The rooms do not come at a cheap price, and the restaurant and bar are slightly expensive, but it is to be expected from a hotel of this calibre. Also, unlike some other hotels, its superior style and friendly staff make up for it.
The hotel has also been experimenting with background scent which some customers have found too strong. They are however looking for suggestion from guests in order to find that scent that would be most appealing without being too strong.
My favourite benefits
A truly remarkable thing is that the resident manager of the hotel will respond to every review on a popular review site. Whether these are negative or positive, he adds his own touch in the messages and he makes them personable. On some messages it is obvious that he has checked the person`s other reviews to see what they compare it to. When people have a bad experience, he invites them to call him personally so that he can deal with any issue immediately. This is not something that many businesses will do anymore, and I think consumers could benefit if others would take an example from the Midland Hotel.
Another one of my favourite parts of the hotel was the fact that it had a lounge area which played great music and had a very relaxing atmosphere. Whether you wanted to wind down alone, with your partner, or with a group a friends, this is an ideal place to enjoy a drink at the end of the day. The staffs at the bar are also very friendly and helpful.
If you are looking for something in the downtown area of Manchester, this is a great choice. You will have all the benefits of every other hotel, and a beauty unlike any. If you are coming to the area, whether you were to visit for business or pleasure, you can have both in one spot. BOOK IT AT THE BEST PRICE NOW!
And just in case you need to stay in London as well, take a look at the Landmark Hotel London. Decent place!
