I stay here quite often (maybe once every month or two) on business, yet only once have they managed to transfer my loyalty card details onto my reservation; still, putting that minor inconvenience to one side, the Holiday Inn Express in the city centre is a massive improvement on the Holiday Inn that I used to use a couple of miles out of town.
Like many Holiday Inn (Express) properties, it's franchised, but it's a modern hotel, with smart and functional rooms. The free Wi-Fi is a bit slow (there is a paid upgrade available); and breakfast is basic (but free) - all in all it's a good value hotel close to the centre of Manchester. The only downside is that, on a recent trip an over-enthusiastic cleaner "tidied" away some magazines I'd left in my room...
One tip for guests - The Glasshouse (restaurant in the Crowne Plaza next door) gives a 20% discount to Holiday Inn Express guests (depending on menu selection).
