“Fabulous Find in the City Centre”
Reviewed 7 April 2011

Stayed here for the first time having stayed in most other hotels in Manchester whilst on business. This was the first time the rate was under the capped rate of £80 so I thought I would give it a try. From check in the service was impressive with plush surroundings and clean and tidy decor. I asked for a quiet room and was put on the 7th floor towards the end of the corridor and I have to be honest never heard a single thing. The room was gorgoeous with lovely furnishings and a comfy bed. Small touches like water in the room and chocolates on the pillow were fab. The bathroom was ultra modern with a separate shower cubicle and spotlessly clean. I didn't have breakfast as this wasn't in the room rate but it was £9.99 if purchased the day before so came in at good value. Was back again in Manchester this week but it was over the capped rate at £87 so I had to stay in the not so impressive Ramada.

Room Tip: pure luxury for the business traveller

Always stay at the mal but due to a offer with work thought I would try something new. Quick and easy checkin, good serivce and no problems with hotel. Only downside was the traffic noise which you could hear in bedroom on 3rd floor. Room I booked was a suite, which was clean and a good size. When you book a club room/suite you also get acess to the club lounge which offers free soft drinks all day and between 6-8pm you get access to free alcohol inc beers & wines which was a nice touch. You also get breakfast in the lounge in the morning but didn't try this myself.

Location is good 5 minutes walk from centre and close to Arndale shopping centre, hotel does not have car parking but NCP 200 metres at £15/ 24hrs. We had a two double bedroom for 3 persons although a little compact had good facilities and very comfy beds. Very good quality breakfast. Only negatives were the reception and bar area which felt "airport" and lack of good tourist information from the concierge desk. Would use again though

This was our first trip to Manchester for a weekend getaway. The receptionists were friendly, speedy and helpful. Room was very clean and stylish. View was of a carpark but hey we weren't here to stare at that all day. Breakfast was better than expected but other meals were had out. Location was fantastic - right in the centre with shopping and bars close by. We walked pretty much everywhere so was exhausted by the evening and thus good sleep. Would defiinitely recommend!

Stayed for one night. Requested an early check-in, this was honoured. I arrived extremely early 9:45am, and was checked in-brilliant.

The hotel is in a good location, very close to shops, Manchester Arndale Centre about two minute walk away.All staff were very courteous. Had a double-double room on fifth floor, which was very modern and very clean. No complaints! Our room price included breakfast, which was also very good.

Would definitely stay at the Crowne Plaza again when visiting Manchester!
Well done to the Crowne plaza...

This still has the feeling of a new Hotel. I was staying just one night on a shopping trip to meet my sister and had driven up. Luckily I only had a small bag as the car parking was a little walk away. The room was as you expect from this chain and breakfast was fresh. The only complaint would be that next time I would find somewhere closer to the shops.

I'm not sure as to what type of shops you perfer. But, the Arndale Centre is just a short 5 min walk from our hotel. It is actually the largest centre city shopping mall in all of Europe. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Crowne Plaza Manchester City Centre the next time your travel plans permit.

Great place to stay - very efficient staff - one niggling thing about the room was the lack of sufficient lighting.
