A recent trip to Manchester involved staying in a hotel in the centre of the City. Very pleasant hotel right in the middle of the busy part of town, but I could have been anywhere once I was in that hotel room. The normal description of these sort of places is 'corporate' which in my view means it's bland beyond despair!
When asked to let them have some feedback once I was back home, I suggested that they fill some of the acres of blank walls with some well chosen images of Manchester. I hope they listen. It would give the place a sense of place. They could do worse than look at this site and choose some images from here. Not from Manchester perhaps, but brilliant works in any event and the prints would enhance any wall.
