“Very good, centrally placed hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 February 2012

A very good, modern hotel situated right in the City Centre. Pleasant, well equipped & stylish rooms, very comfortable beds. Friendly staff, good breakfast, & floor to ceiling windows giving a decent view. For a city centre hotel, I found the outside noise level to be minimal. Downside is the lack of parking, not even a discount on nearby car parks. The NCP is very close, & costs £15.20 for 24 hours. Overall, will definitely return when next in Manchester.

My husband and I had an enjoyable stay at this hotel recently. The staff were very friendly and helpful. On arrival we were upgraded, so we experienced the Club Lounge, which was excellent.
The room was lovely, clean and spacious. The bed was very comfy and we had a brilliant night's sleep.
The only downside was the bacon at breakfast, as it was very stringy.
We would definitely recommend this hotel and we are looking forward to staying here again (in June).

I spent one night at Crowne Plaza and it impressed me.
The hotel design is modern and the staff is friendly. The rooms are big enough and were very clean. The downside was the bed, as the matress was a bit too soft for me.
Is is very well located as you can easily reach the city center by foot or catch the tram in a station nearby to reach farther places.
The most negative point I'd say that was the breakfast logistics. The hotel was crowed and at the rush hour it was very difficult to walk through the breakfast area to grab anything to eat. Additionally in spite of the variety in terms of smoked ham, eggs, sauchices, it lacked different kinds of bread.

If I return to Manchester I'll certainly consider to stay at crowne plaza.

I recently stayed at this hotel when I had my 2 night hen weekend in Manchester.
I booked 3 rooms on a pre-pay rate which worked out about the same price as hotels which would have meant getting taxi's into the centre.
Each room was a modern twin room with 2 double beds, I have stayed there before and you do get more room if you just have a queen size bed but it was just right for 2 nights.
2 of our rooms were interconnecting so we had the doors open all weekend and the other was right next door - great for when girls are getting ready for a night out!
The bathroom looked lovely - seperate bath and shower even if the flow on the water wasn't the best - it was nothing to complain about! We also had bathrobes and slippers - only one had been provided so I called down and another one was with us within 5 minutes!
One of our party used the gym and said that it was small but had enough for a short stay.
We didn't have breakfast in the hotel, we chose a cafe just by the hotel (turn left out of the hotel - first cafe you come to on the corner). It was lovely and really reasonable cost wise. It must be a popular cafe with the people that stay in the hotel because we couldn't get a table for 7 on the Sunday when everyone had checked out - the place was packed! So may be worth checking out a little earlier if you are in a large group!
As for the location of the hotel, it is ideal for those wanting shopping and nightlife. Turn left out of the hotel and walk down the hill - the arndale shopping centre is to your left and the printworks (restaurants, bars and clubs) is to your right. You also have selfridges, a large primark and many other outside stores.
The MEN arena is also within walking distance.
We caught a taxi from the train station to the hotel as we were unsure of our bearings but it cost only £4.50 - bargain with all the luggage we had!
We had a brilliant weekend and the hotel contributed to this. The reception staff were lovely, the rooms were lovely and the location was more than we could ask for!!
Will definitely stay here again if in Manchester - the only thing this hotel is missing is a pool!

My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights in February taking advantage of a deal from the Holiday Inn Priority Club. Check in was quick and polite. We booked a club room which is well worth the extra. Very comfortable room though not completely soundproofed from the road leading into Manchester centre. We took advantage of the complimentary beverages in the club lounge including the complimentary breakfast. Will definitely return.

Stay here while on business in Manchester and the hotel is within walking distance of the city centre. The rooms are a good size and spotless. The hotel is modern and the restaurants are good (albeit pricey). Checking in and out was hassle-free. Brilliant for anyone visiting the MEN.

Working in central Manchester I ended staying in the Crown Plaza. Stayed over a period of 4 weeks in late 2011 and Crown Plaza was a home from home. Friendly staff, great food, smashing hotel.
Right in the centre everything was reachable by foot, loads of restaurants nearby to choose from. I really enjoyed the experience and look forward to staying Crown Plaza again!
