“Great Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2011

We stayed at this hotel for one night only as we were going to an event at the MEN arena. The hotel is really well located, short walk from Victoria Station and the arena and equally 5-10 minutes to the main shopping area of Manchester city centre.
The room we had was modern and a decent size with all the usual amenities although we were missing slippers which others in our party had. There was a safe, iron and ironing board, tea/coffee and a mini bar.
The hotel bar served food which looked quite good value although we didn't sample it and drinks were reasonably priced for a city centre hotel.
The breakfast was the only meal we had and was excellent, good selection of hot and cold food and well cooked.
Overall we enjoyed our short stay and would not hesitate to book this hotel again if staying in Manchester city centre.

We stayed for 1 night, the hotel is new and good decor and beds as you would expect. I stay in a lot of hotels, many in this chain and it is certainly one of the better ones and would chose it again next time.

My only issue was after arriving back at the hotel about 10:30pm, the bar was so slow and very indeed staffed.

Great location, very close 5 minute walking distance to MEN Arena and the Arndale shopping centre. Secure cctv NCP car park only 800metres away 15gbp/24hours.
Our King Deluxe Room was lovely.... modern, comfortable, clean, quiet. Nice separate shower cubicle in bathroom in addition to the bath.
Nice bar/restaurant on ground floor, both restaurant and bar menu's. We had bar menu Battered Fish and Chips which fish was excellent.
Standard free hotel TV channels included Sky Sports 1/2/3 which was nice bonus

Room Tip: Club Lounge is on top floor 8, so if booking club rooms, ask for 8th floor. Club rooms are oh floo...

We arrived at the hotel mid afternoon and checked into a De Luxe Club Room on the 8th floor. Our room was well furnished throughout and fully met our needs for our 1 night stay.
The Club Lounge is also on the 8th floor and provides complimentary drinks and canapes in the evening from 6pm although open throughout the day. Complimentary breakfast for Club Room Guests is also available. The Club Lounge is a relaxing place to spend some downtime and affords views over the city.
The hotel is extremely close to both Market St and the Arndale Centre and just a short walk away from the MEN Arena.
We enjoyed both Dinner and Breakfast in the hotels Glasshouse Restaurant.. The Glasshouse Bar is also available for bar meals.
We parked in the NCP Printworks Car Park which is just 100 yds from the hotel.
The charge for parking is £15.20 for 24 hours.
Internet access is available in the room and chargeable at £7.50 for 24 hours although complimentary to Platinum Members of the Priority Club.
We last stayed at the Crowne Plaza over a year ago and again the stay experience fully met our expectations. We would most definitely recommend this hotel and no doubt we will return again in the future.

we stayed here for a night after a show at the men and it was great. close to the men which was handy and close to nightlife too.The rooms were very comfortable and spotless. A special mention must go to the staff who could'nt do enough especially caroline on reception who took the time to draw a map to help us find our way to the places we wanted to go. YOU ARE A STAR CAROLINE !!!

Lovely modern clean hotel, comfy beds, fabulous shower and toiletries. Very close to Birdcage nightclub, walking distance from train station and city centre. Breakfast was plentiful although choice wasnt great, had meal for 40th at night, service was very slow, drinks were VERY VERY expensive I asked for extra orange juice to top up a vodka and was charged £3 for a mouthful of cheap orange juice! Would stay again.
