I have stayed in Liverpool before at the Marriot and Holiday Inn both of which are very good however the Crowne Plaza is a cut above them! Situated on Albet Dock next to the Liver building the location is excellent for access to the newly refurbished areas of Liverpool.
The entrance all to the hotel is a wide open space and the guy at the door with the top hat makes you feel like you have come somewhere special! Check in was very fast and efficient and I found all the staff to be very professional. Throughout the hotel is smart and tidy and a refreshing change to some of the places I have been.
I got to my room and was not disappointed, the room was clean and tidy and very modern with a large LCD TV. Unfortunately my room was on the back looking at the Thistle hotel across the road. If you can get on the front you will get a view across the Mersey very nice! The only very minor comment and it is minor, was that the ice bucket provided for the water had been there that long that the ice melted!
I tried the leisure facilities and have to say they were first class as well. The pool is a bit bigger than standard hotel pools so the extra space was welcome.
Breakfast and the evening meal were both of a very high standard if a little bit expensive.
The only other negative comment I would make is the £7.50 charge for the car park. When you pay over £100 for a night in a hotel, plus food you would think the charge should be included seems to me like a little bit of profiteering there! I know some other hotels in Liverpool don’t have car parks so maybe free car parking would for guests would be a selling point!
Other than that this is an excellent modern hotel at a standard I think we all deserve and expect, well done to the Crowne Plaza on this one!
