...If you look over the aircraft you can see what appears to be a large conference room with big windows at the top of the Radisson Hotel at MAN which looks like it might present interesting photography opporunities (assuming the windows are clean of course! )
Anyone been there or know if you can get any decent shots from there?

I was with my cousins, and they said 'hey look its called the aviation suite because there is a three-piece suite in it!!!', but no.. It was a business conference room.
I asked if I could planespot for a bit, don't mind me, they didn't answer .
Glenn - It depends, on top of the car park there are fences that are over 6ft high, but there are some holes, in the actual Aviation viewing park there are viewing mounds for seeing over the fence, and at the pub the aircraft approach over the fence.......... Over the other side, there are raised paths that you can see over the fences from, etc.

I once stayed in that hotel and one evening I went up there to check it out. The doors were open and some seats were provided... I didn't ask and spent the entire evening up there, just watching the planes come in and depart. The sight was awesome, with all these lights (RWY's, taxiways etc.)
But I doubt its useful for photography, as others have pointed out
