Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Monnydite Good hotel, very nice room, would return
I was looking forward to staying and the Crown Plaza and I wasn't disappointed. Nicely restored old art deco airport terminal building with a number of old planes dotted around to complete the atmosphere. The rooms are a good size with nice decor. The bed was very comfortable with plenty of pillows. There was tea, coffee, hot chocolate etc in the room along with complimentary still and sparkling water. Very nice bathroom in art deco style. There was a free safe in the room. There was one dressing gown and one pair of slippers?? Guess I could have asked for another one if I had wanted to? I asked for and was promised a room overlooking the old airfield but was given one overlooking some gardens. After speaking to reception I was given a key to another room which this time did overlook the airfield.
We didn't eat at hotel so cannot comment on the food. For breakfast we went to a Toby Carvery which was just a few minutes drive away.
WiFi was chargeable, the price of which in my opinion was too expensive. Great shame as it would have been useful for us. Instead we used 3G, hotspots in Liverpool city area and next door. Maybe WiFi was charged as our double room for myself and my Husband was very reasonable considering the good standard of the hotel and the facilities of the David Lloyd Club next door which we had free access to. We only used the David Lloyd Club on one evening. The pool was rather cold so I just used the Jacuzzi. My Husband used the pool and the Sauna. Afterwards we used their free WiFi.
Parking was free and there was plenty of it you just need to give Reception your car registration number or you might get a parking ticket.
I would definitely recommend this hotel and if ever I return to visit Liverpool I would certainly consider staying here again despite not having free WiFi.

We had an excellent stay at the Crowne Plaza. The bedroom was well decorated and furnished in an art deco style, very comfortable and the temperature was just right.
Very good and would highly recommend, will return

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Newmie01 issues spoiled what should have been a nice stay
This was our second stay at this hotel and we were really looking forward to the stay as it was lovely last time.
We arrived late (9pm) and the first thing we were greeted with was a shower cap placed over the Smoke alarm. I then went to call reception to notify them only to find that the telephone in the room didn't work.
Then had to go out to reception to ask them to take it down, It may seem petty to do this but the hotel should know that people are doing this so they can smoke in their rooms!
So Smoke alarm was sorted I then found that we only had 2 towels in the room, annoying when there were four of us staying in the room (stipulated on booking the room) so back out to reception I went to get some more towels (no telephone working in room)
The hotel staff dealt with these issues promptly (apart from phone) so I cant fault the staff. The hotel looks amazing with its art deco decor but the room, especially the bathroom, is looking tired now, (dents on bath painted over, marks around bath and dent on the wall).
We would return as our previous stay was so much better but when you are staying one night you expect everything to run smoothly.
