Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jen19667 Excellent stay, once again
I stayed with a friend last year for the christmas markets and came back this year as we liked the rooms and the double bed each.
Lovely room, great location for the markets and city centre.
Only thing is rooms get warm and air con will only go as low as 19 degrees which was a bit too warm still at times
Great breakfast as well, staff were lovely and helpful
Can't wait to come back next year!

For the money they charge. this is an excellent city centre hotel with friendly, informed staff, superb rooms and an excellent bar.
Ok, Carl Froch and team were staying in the hotel for the boxing last weekend, but even when things are quieter, it buzzes.
And from those big windows/walls on the street sides of the hotel, even Manchester looks fabulous (in the dark)!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Businesstraveller73 Stayed after a gig at the MEN
The hotel is a stones throw from the city centre and MEN. Parking is good value at £9.50 for 24 hours. Lovely room and nice staff. It's the second time I have stayed in a week, so it must be good :-)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jess10 Clean and modern
Booked a room with two double beds which was very spacious, clean and modern. Lovely comfortable beds and pillows and bathroom was large with full bath and shower cubicle. There was also free WIFI available.
Paid additional £10 for two breakfasts and there was an excellent choice, however the only downside was the full English, which was buffet style, was not very hot.
The hotel is located with a couple of minutes walk from the Arndale shopping centre and a five pound taxi fare from Piccadilly station. Overall a very nice hotel with friendly, helpful staff - would definitely return.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kate901 Thoroughly enjoyable stay
Perfect for mother and daughter stay. 2 comfortable double beds in the room plus a seperate shower and bath in en suite catered for all our needs. Despite the hotel being full, the staff were friendly and polite and the service offered still quick and efficient. Nice breakfast with a variety of fresh fruit, cereals, pastries and cooked breakfast. The hotel and rooms were very clean and pleasantly decorated. Convenient location with pay car park opposite and only a short walk to Arndale shopping centre, restaurants and bars. We were on the 3rd floor and the room was very quiet with no noise from other quests or traffic. We will be back!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Coops7 Good overnight stay
I booked this hotel as I am a member of the priority club for one night in October. I was attending a meeting in Manchester. On checking in the staff were very accommodating, however we were not offered an upgrade which is one advantage of being an ambassador member. We had booked a club room so maybe there were no other options.
I was a little disappointed with the club room facilities. We had to keep on asking for a glass of wine in the happy hour, and the hors d'oevers were poor. Just a little salmon tartlet. The complimentary breakfast was also quite poor with not much choice.
The dining room was lovely though and we had a good meal there.
In the morning the club room receptionist/ concierge booked me a taxi and was wonderful. He actually came downstairs with me to make sure I had my taxi on time.
My husband stayed at the hotel and asked for a late checkout. He was only offered a 1pm checkout. Again as an ambassador member we were led to believe we could have a 4pm checkout. Just the little touches will make this an exceptional hotel, but I am sure we will return the next time I am in Manchester.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Davey5583 Had my phone stolen from the room!!
Not much more I need to say here, my iPhone 5 was stolen out of the room whilst I was in the club lounge.
This spoilt my partners birthday weekend, and made us feel distressed and disturbed that this could happen in the Crowne Plaza.
Please insure all your items are locked away if you do decide to stay in this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LillyT Nothing was too much for the staff at this hotel
My friends and I planned a weekend to Manchester which, due to personal circumstances, had to be changed. The team at the hotel were totally understanding and accommodating and helped us reschedule our visit. When we did arrive at the hotel, we really appreciated the club rooms (definitely recommended). Every member of the staff that we encountered could not do enough for us - customer service was excellent across the board. We'll definitely be back!
