Stayed at the Crowne Plazza to visit the NEC (Gadget show live).
Hotel is ideally located and a short walk from Birmingham Internation stations and the NEC itself.
The hotel itself is ok and what you would usually expect for a UK 4* hotel (nice enough to stay at, clean and average food, but dont expect it to be anythign near what you would get for a 4* in the UK or other European major cities).
For value for money it was exceptional (had a twin room for 4 people and as we booked 4 months in advance paid less than £90 in total) and i could not have found a B&B for that money.
On a less positive point the hotel check-in left a lot to desire (room not ready / lake view room was a room with a view of a brick wall). However the hotel treated me well enough by giving a discount on the room rate and a few drinks from the bar. So at the end of the day issues happen with hotels but at least they were able to come to a good compromise that I was happy with.
Woud i book with them again if I went to the NEC - yes
