Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kimmieb46 Lovely Room but Breakfast in room not so good
I booked a suite a few months ago at a very good price. It was lovely, nice lounge area with sofas and table and chairs, tv. Gorgeous bedroom with such a comfortable bed, heaven. Loved the batheroom with huge bath, seperate shower and proper sized toiletries, I hate those tiny ones usually left in hotels so well done for that!
We had access to the club lounge which we really enjoyed, a few glasses of wine and canapes before we went out for the evening is such a nice touch, and certainly sways me to book a club/suite room again!
The only down side of the visit was the breakfast. We opted to have room service and all I can say was the tea nad coffee was the best part! The cooked breakfast was cold, toast cold and burnt, not great. We didn't complain as we needed to get on the road and couldn't wait for another one to be replaced.
All in all a great room, loved the club lounge and would stay agin

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MB123 Not bad but needs some TLC to bring this hotel up to standard
Parking was close but space was tight, but we did find a space after soom time.
Room was good but it just needed some TLC, skirting boards where badly damaged.
Cllub lounge in the evening was good but at breakfast there was no coffee pods for the machine so we had to use instant coffee. Food was OK but again not what I would expect in a Crowne Plaza Club lounge.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SUKIE1967 LOVED HAVING THE TWO DOUBLE BEDS IN THE ROOM!
This hotel was perfectly situated for our needs. 5 mins. walk to Broad Street, 10 mins. to Brindley Place, more or less next to The Mailbox. The room was extremely comfortable. In my experience I felt it was a little pricey, but at the end of the day I suppose you get what you pay for.
Breakfast was hot, fresh and plentiful.
My only criticism was the dirty floor.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Ashwin Very poor service from Reception
I checked in and 10 am and was informed b the receptionist that she could not issue me with the room keys as the rooms were not ready. I informed her that that would be OK as long as she ensured that we did not have any problems when we return back to the hotel after 6 pm. She assured me that she would. At sometime after 1 pm someone form the hotel telephoned my wife at home to inquire if we were going to take the rooms. She telephoned me on my mobile to let me know what had happened. I was therefore forced to telephone the hotel at a great amount of inconvenience. When I did so, the telephoning was totally ignorant as to us checking in at 10 am. I informed her what had happened and she assured me that she would ensure all would be in order when we return to the hotel later on. ON OUR RETURN TO THE HOTEL AT 7pm WE HAD THE SAME PROBLEM AGAIN AND THIS TIME WE WERE GOING TO BE ALLOCATED ROOMS WITH KING BEDS DESPITE HAVING RESERVED TWINS BEDS AND ALSO HAVING INFORMED THE RECEPTIONIST IN THE MORNING THAT WE WERE 4 MEN WHO WOULD REQUIRE TWINS BEDS IN BOTH THE ROOMS.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Nick666 Bad experience
As me & my fiancé went into the room, i used the toilet and the first towel i picked up had a massive stain on it which i rang down to reception to get it changed, and they did.
then late on in the night as we was ready to go sleep, we notice the bottom of the bed was all dam and wet, I'm sorry but how could this be, i have stayed at your hotel plenty of times but now it has put me off, i shall tell my business friends and make sure my clients dont use your hotel in birmingham because it was awful. i would recommend you after this bad experience.

Having in stayed most of the main hotels in the center of Birmingham, I have found this the most pleasing. It is set back from the main roads and is just the rights distance form the lively bars of the city, this location helps it benefits with a better nights sleep when compared with others.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by eringreg A pleasant surprise
I want sure of what to expect from my visit to Birmingham but it was a pleasant surprise and the Crowne Plaza met and exceeded our needs. The location was close to many of the attractions we were looking for - aside from the run-down/abandoned parkades our room view provided - we would stay again!

Staying at Crowne Plaza Birmingham was great, and value for money. The location was also great right in the centre. The room was very clean and tidy, it was also very stylish and modern which i look for in a place of stay, and the bed was comfortable. The staff were also very friendly and helpful and i would definitely recommend to anyone.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CarolR49 Great stay !
Met up with 2 friends for weekend commencing 17 May and we all stayed at the Crowne Plaza Birmingham City Centre Hotel.
Lovely modern hotel with very welcoming atmosphere which we all enjoyed. Room and bathroom fresh and clean and decorated well.
Breakfast was hot and freshly made with a good variety to suit all tastes.
Staff were extremely helpful and answered all our requests with courtesy. Big thank you to them.
If this hotel is typical of your chain I would definitely stay in one of your hotels again.
Our next trip will be down Southampton way towards end of year.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jayne01 sky sports in room
Room are normally upgraded to club rooms for gold and platinum members but they were unable to for us as they didn't have the availability. Instead they offered us a complimentary drink and canapes at the bar. This was not explained very well by the receptionist and was very confusing. A real plus for us was that they had sky sports in the rooms which I have never really come across before even at 5 star hotels.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DanRM2013 Ideal weekend break
I stayed at the crown plaza for the night over the weekend and overall thoroughly enjoyed my stay, me an my girlfriend were treated very well and all the staff were polite and helpful.
Rooms were nice and spacious and well designed. Complimentary tea and biscuits were also in the room.
The bar was quite expensive however compare to places outside the hotel it was about right, comfortable seating downstairs next to the bar.
The design in and around the hotel is very modern , could even be described as quality.
Shops and restaurants are close by which was great.
Upon leaving we could leave out luggage safely with staff while we went out to lunch and had a last browse around the shops, when we came back they staff offered to order us a taxi.
Overall very please and would consider coming back

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Porkypig Superior Room with Superior Experience
The Reception staff were very welcoming and extremely helpful from the first moment we arrived to the time we left which made a great first impression. The room was extremely well appointed with large flat screen TV and tea making facilities. The Club Room enabled us to relax in the exclusive lounge and was well worth paying the extra money. Thoroughly recommended.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by D4wnc Nice room but spoilt by noisy guests!
I've stayed at this hotel and it is in a brilliant location for the shops, train station, mailbox and Brindley Place.
Beds very comfy and lots of space. Lovely shower and complimentary toiletries.
Paid extra for breakfast which had an excellent selection.
However the trip was spoilt by other guests having a party firstly in the corridor and then in their room at 4am. I did phone reception who came up quickly and told them to be quiet, but they carried on anyway. It would be a good idea if the reception/security team paid a visit 10 mins or so later to see if the problem has been resolved.
I did complain to a nice lady on reception on check out who was sympathetic but no compensation!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DaveG55 Good as always
Probably my favourite hotel in the UK at the moment. Staff always polite and helpful and the gym is small but comfortable with ample equipment. The club room is always pleasant and all staff who are in attendance are considerate and polite.
The location is excellent and is within easy walking distance to all Birmingham attractions.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Cardiff Lack of care for Platinum member
I checked in great and was upgraded to the club level which was a great touch. However upon returning to the hotel I suggested to some clients that we had a drink in the bar, I ordered the drinks and was informed that I was unable to charge drinks to my room. I stated that as the norm for all platinum members there was no requirement to hand over a credit card at check in. I asked the barman to charge it anyway and I will sort out.. Was told no and was frogmarched much to my embarrassment to the check in desk to swipe a card. The reception staff again repeated that just I needed to swipe a card. Upon heck out in the morning I complained and was told this would be passed to the manager. To date not received. A response.
Why do across the IHG chain if your a platimum member you don't need to swipe a card and yet this lot seem to be a law onto themselves. I wouldn't of minded if I was informed at check in.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Norrie Credit where credit is not due
What a shame that this Hotel has decided to charge 3% when you pay by AMEX card.
As a priority Club member since 2002 & pay by card for all transactions, I feel this is a cheap shot for loyal customers.
I am not aware that Holiday Inns charge in the same way for using your credit card to settle accounts.
I say think again Crowns Plaza as customers have a choice where they want to stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by pebblesstone Good business location
The lifts were having a service and so one lift for several hours was a pain but overall it was acceptable. Bar food way over-priced. Staff in the bar and restaurant area were very accommodating. Rooms very clean but why the missing half-door on the shower?

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kar111 Great location
Stayed twice at this hotel . But very disappointed with room
Husband won't let me complain but wish I did
Booked though late rooms so perhaps that's why we were put in a disabled room with aids in bathroom . Toilet seat raised , sink lowered ,shower dreadful no power. Pull cords in bathroom and bedroom. Don't get me wrong I'm a carer so agree with these aids but i am lucky enogh not to need them. Just wanted to be spoiled with a nice room. But on the plus side Beyonce concert was brillant.
