Personal Shopping Weekends30 July 2012

Fancy the services or your own personal stylist during your stay? Staying Cool has teamed up with Stylizers, to offer personal shopping weekends - whether it's a new work or social wardrobe, an oufit for a special occasion, or just an excuse for a day's shopping...

Check in to your uber-stylish, city centre apartment and then kick-start the weekend with a champagne reception, followed by your own personal style party in the privacy of your apartment. Your stylist will talk you through the season's trends and themes, offering tips and advice on the right look for you, plus there's a selection of clothes to look through before hitting the shops the next day.

After breakfast in your apartment on Saturday it's time to enjoy Manchester's stores, with your personal fashion stylist at your side. They will have pre-booked your changing rooms and you'll be able to take in as many items as you want to try on - a relaxing retail experience that is miles away from the usual Saturday afternoon changing room mayhem. Your stylist will be on hand to put together outfits for you and offer advice and suggestions to help you achieve the best look for you. What's more they'll even carry your bags for you!

Saturday night is your chance to try out your new look - we'll reserve a table at a city centre restaurant or give you the low down on the coolest bars and clubs to visit - and in Manchester you'll be spoilt for choice. Spend Sunday as you please - relax, hit the shops again or perhaps you just want to spend the day exploring Manchester's city centre.

Stylizers' stylists aren't affiliated with any particular store - so whether you prefer Prada or Primark, Harvey Nichs or Hennes, vintage or Vivienne Westwood, you can shop to suit your style, age and budget.

Staying Cool Style Weekends cost £370 per person which includes accommodation (for up to four people), a champagne reception on arrival, the services of your own personal stylist and an organic full English or continental breakfast box each day, as well as access to our concierge service.

August Offer on Mini Apartments26 July 2012

Our gorgeous Mini apartments at the Rotunda in Birmingham are priced at £99 per night per apartment for the whole of August 2012.
