I attended the hotel for two days in June 2011 for a business meeting for 14 delegates. I should have stayed there as well, but, due to a mysterious change in reservations, my booking was transferred (without my knowledge) to the nearby (8 minute walk) Marriott Renaissance instead of the V&A. The Boardroom used onthe first day was rather claustrophobic, with no windows at all, even internal ones. On the second day we moved to a much better meeting room, of similar size, and with a glass internal wall.
Refreshments during the day were first class; the bacon butties went down very well, as did the "home made" cookies and other snacks. The lunch buffet on each day was well above the usual standard for conference fare in such hotels.
Service from all the staff we encountered was first class; the V&A is certainly wiorth looking in to for a meeting /conference venue in Manchester.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Set in the vibrant Manchester city centre on the banks of the River Irwell, the Manchester Marriott Victoria & Albert Hotel in England exudes a historical charm. Our cozy 4-star Manchester hotel's location across from Granada Television Studios is ideal, as guests enjoy a short and pleasant stroll to the Opera House, Spinningfields area, and Palace Theatre. Since our Manchester city center hotel's origin was a warehouse built in 1844, you will find many authentic details in our guest rooms including exposed brick and oak beams. Our £3 million renovation in 2014 highlights the old architecture and new contemporary flair, along with modern comforts and services. ... more less
