I have stayed in a few 4* and 5* hotels in Manchester, and I must say, the Crowne Plaza is my favourite, surpassing even it's 5* rival, The Lowry. The Crowne Plaza's rooms are small and compact but they are so cleverly designed, it still feels luxurious. The rooms are beautifully decorated and they are spotlessly clean. Bathrooms are undeniably...

Perfect for anyone looking to go shopping in Manchester, going to the arena or both. NCP over the road is easy to use and also subsidised by the hotel. Printworks is also a staggering distance from the hotel, however the hotel does have good cocktail menu to finish off the night.

We had a lovely 3 nights here at the Crown Plaza. The staff were always happy and very helpful. Room was good but we know next time to go back for a club room as this offers more space. We ate one night in the bar and found the food to be good. Concierge was a great help with local...

To start with I'd like to say the bar/ restaurant staff was amazing! Couldn't do enough, a real credit to the team ! The check in staff was shocking, we stayed with a business trip and we was told could conflicting information all the time about our allowances. No one seemed to know what they was talking about and caused...

This is a chic, elegant hotel. Rooms are thoughtfully decorated in modern style. Ask for a city view from the 8th floor, it's lovely. Tea service is nice, and free internet is very good at all areas of the hotel. Bathrooms are ample size and feature a shower and separate luxurious tub. Beds are soft and comfortable.

There's a couple of reasons we like this hotel but mainly because it's walking distance to Manchester Arena. Also you can park nearly opposite for £13 for an over night stay, its subsidised by the hotel. Staff are friendly, especially the lovely little waitress that served us our evening meal, she's a treasure so look after her. Our room had...

We stayed here for 2 nights in a twin room as a family of 4. The room was clean and well appointed. Breakfast choice was good, although if you choose something other than what is put out at the buffet then you will be charged for it. The location is ideal for the city centre just behind Arndale Shopping Centre,...
