We stayed at the Crowne Plaza overnight as we were lucky to have tickets to go to the arena for two nights in a row. Our stay here was great and certainly is the best hotel I have stayed at so far in Manchester, providing a better experience than the usual city centre hotel chains you might choose for an overnight stay. The rooms are well equipped and have a more luxurious feel that you would usually find in a more expensive hotel. The quality of the bedding, towels and amenities are second to none and the staff were particularly helpful.
Breakfast is great with an excellent choice of food well prepared and the staff keep your coffee cups topped up throughout.
We recommend calling into the hotel first if you require parking as you can park in the car park opposite for a reduced price than if you just used the car park payment machine. The hotel staff give you a ticket to put in your car and it costs £9 for 24 hours which is a good deal.
This is a great place to stay if you want to be close to the centre or to the arena which is only a five minute walk away.
We will definitely choose this hotel if we stay again in Manchester.
