My wife and I visited Chester for my birthday mid December and booked to stay for a night in the Crowne Plaza, having stayed previously. On this occasion the receptionist asked why we were in Chester and I said it was for my birthday at which point I was offered a complimentary bottle of wine, colour of my choice. I know some may scoff at this, but we thought it was a nice gesture, which added to our stay, which was appreciated.
This hotel is ideally situated as a base for exploring the city on foot, having parking and being centrally located. The extra's like entrance to the leisure facilities are icing on the cake, especially the steam roon when you have been walking round for hours in the cold.
Two other points to mention, firstly we ate at Hickory Smokehouse which was great (separate review posted) and secondly we ventured into the Old Boot Inn in the city and had a very reasonable couple of drinks less than £3 for a pint of Samuel Smiths bitter and half of cider.
