Night out with friends
Our stay at the velvet was excellent every part of our stay we was made to feel welcome. The only down side is the parking issue. And having to pay an extra £16 to park for 24hr apart from that it's a beautiful hotel.

Good 6.0
Weekend Trip
Good: The hotel was VERY well decorated. The amenities were fantastic. The folks at the front desk were super helpful. Bad: The walls were paper thin. For a hotel that clearly spent a lot of money on how it looked, they really dropped the ball on soundproofing. We eventually fell asleep at midnight listening to our neighbor throw a party. We were woken up at 2 and 4am by the party goers outside the window (3 floors above the street). And finally we were woken up again at 8:30am by our other neighbors having a very loud morning sesh.

Dissapointing - Got the basics all wrong!
Me and my wife stayed here for 1 night as we were attending a concert at Manchester Arena. I used a local NCP carpark (£25 a night) and then made our way to the hotel where we were greeted by very friendly hotel staff, paid our £50 deposit and went to our room (21). The room was a good size with funky decor but had a few issues. First of all, we noticed a used contact lens from a previous guest on the floor beside the bin. The tv wasn't connected (although impressive in size) and did not include apps such as Netflix as had been advertised. It wasn't even connected via the socket or the internet. Comfort wise the bed was fine, although I was awoken by the sound of creaking floorboards above (you hear literally every step people make). In the morning we tried to make a coffee but no granulated option was provided, leaving only a perculator - which would have been fine, had the machine worked and the milk provided not already gone off. Needless to say, this experience didn't tempt us to pay the £11.95 each for breakfast. We reported every issue to the very polite gentleman on reception who advised that someone would be in touch regarding our feedback. I left it until the next day before writing this review in the hope that we would be contacted, but I'm yet to receive a call or email about our experience. As such, I'm afraid that I couldn't recommend this hotel to friends or family staying in Manchester - I expected better.

The hotel location was perfect for working in the day and relaxing in the evening. The staff could not have been more helpful and the room itself was certainly interesting!
