INNSIDE is a contemporary four-star chain which seems to be aiming for the same market as the Starwood Aloft brand. The hotels are modern in design and feel, attractively priced by focussing on core services yet still offering the four-star services that a business traveller needs.
The two photos (well, one photo and one drawing) on this page give an impression of INNSIDE Manchester. The hotel website is here.
Until the end of May, all rooms are £99 – but you can do better!
If you are a Melia Rewards member you can, when logged in to melia.com, book for just £94, receive 10,000 Melia Rewards points (targeted), receive an upgrade AND receive a £15 credit per day to spend in the hotel when you are there. Not a bad package!
You must be logged in to see if you qualify for the 10,000 points bonus. Only some Melia Rewards accounts have this offer. Make sure that the ‘+ 10,000 points’ icon shows on the booking page next to the rate you choose.
What does 10,000 MeliaRewards points get you?
Looking purely at airline transfers, 10,000 Melia Rewards points will convert into 1,500 Avios points in Iberia Plus. Melia is not a British Airways partner but you can move the Avios from iberia.com to ba.com using ‘Combine My Avios’ online.
If you don’t want 1,500 Avios, 10,000 Melia Rewards points will also convert into:
1,666 Lufthansa Miles & More miles
5,000 airberlin topbonus miles
1,666 American Airlines miles
1,666 Flying Blue miles
Interestingly, you can also transfer them into 5,000 Wyndham Rewards points if you collect with the US hotel chain.
And a further 2,000 MeliaRewards points for signing up!
If you are not already a member of MeliaRewards, you can receive an extra 2,000 points for signing up. You need to click on the link at the bottom of this page on the Melia website which will take you to the sign-up page.
