“Great value hotel in an excellent location!”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Crowne Plaza for two nights for a weekend getaway and it was a great experience.
The room has a fresh, modern design and was in very good condition. The bed was the highlight, big, soft and comfy with a really cosy duvet and lovely soft sheets while the bathroom had a separate bath and shower which was a nice feature - all very modern and well designed.
I think this hotel is truly excellent value and I will absolutely be staying here again on future trips to Manchester.

As this is a city centre Hotel we knew the parking would be adjacent rather than onsite but we thought it would be the ideal place to stay and we weren't disappointed. It's stylish and set in a good location. The rooms were comfortable and we had a great view towards the Co-Op's iconic office complex. Staff in the bar were nice and chatty without being overbearing, and we enjoyed the breakfast; my poached eggs were perfectly done. We would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: The best views would be from the front elevation where our rooms were situated.

Stayed on Saturday night. The hotel is very new, modern and clean with car parks available close by.

Fantastic room on the 8th floor overlooking the city. Room was great, plenty of space with a fantastic en suite

I stayed here in May of 2014 on a 2 night business trip to Manchester. The hotel appears to be newer and very stylish. The check in process was super smooth and they upgraded me to the club floor because of my status with the IHG brand. The rooms on the club floor were really well appointed with a full mini bar, huge bathroom, TV, nice beds, and decent view. The club lounge itself was a bit lack luster and provided only soft drinks and some places to sit. The location is ideal if you do not have a car as there is a lot of walkable stuff, and the main rail station is only a block away. The bar in the hotel is very trendy and the bartenders were very attentive. Room service breakfast was very good.

I would stay here again for business in Manchester.

Room Tip: The club level rooms were nice and had access to the club lounge

As a frequent business traveller I do not like hotels. My attitude is different with the Crowne Plaza, Manchester City Centre. The rooms and facilities are good, albeit a swimming pool would be nice. But the real difference is the people.

I noticed on the first night I stayed there that the staff were warmer than most establishments, within a couple of days they treated me like family. There are too many to mention by name but Girma and Malik are real stars, I often arrive late and nothing is too much trouble.

The Executive Lounge is perfect for the business traveller with exceptional service from Joel.

One word of caution, it does seem to be the most popular hotel in Manchester City Centre so book early. Regardless of how busy they are Gill will move mountains to try and accommodate your booking.

If you have to be away from home, the Crowne Plaza is a home from home.
