Lonely Planet says "you can dine, drink and dance yourself into happy oblivion in the swirl of hedonism" in Manchester. If you want to experience the city’s restaurant and bar scene, the Mercure Manchester Piccadilly Hotel is an ideal base. It's a 5-minute walk from both the Northern Quarter, with its independent restaurants and bars, and the city's famous gay village. It's also on the edge of Chinatown.
The hotel is a few metres from Piccadilly Gardens, where there's a bus station and a Metrolink stop, so it's easy to access the wider Manchester area. The city's main shopping areas -- Market Street and the Manchester Arndale -- are both a 5-minute walk from the hotel, and Manchester Art Gallery is a couple of streets away.
The hotel's Brasserie Restaurant, on the third floor, serves up food including steaks, burgers and pies, as well as traditional afternoon tea. From the restaurant you can take in views of Piccadilly Gardens. The hotel also has a bar. The Mercure Manchester Piccadilly Hotel has 280 bedrooms, which are "tastefully appointed" according to The AA, and feature free Wi-Fi.
Privilege Rooms and Superior Suites come with unlimited movies, a Nespresso coffee machine and a free newspaper.
