We had a club room on the 8th floor, the views of the city were fabulous, our room had a bling batchelor pad feel to it, very black & glossy. A large comfortable bed, the bedding & pillows were wonderful! I was surprised at how much traffic and city noise we could hear to say we were on the 8th floor, it was a Saturday night though. Unfortunately for us, at 3 am, we had to call Reception to ask that they speak to our neighbouring room as their music and voices were way too loud. Although it was initially quieter, the noise gradually increased again. So at 4am, we spoke to Reception who then physically went to the room to ask them to be quiet. It appeared that the occupants had 'guests' which isn't allowed. Anyway, after a lot of noise and shouting as the 'guests' left at 4.30 am we managed to get a few hours sleep. This problem was nothing to do with the hotel it was simply the selfish idiots in the room next door having absolutely no consideration for others. On checking out, the Receptionist immediately apologized for the problems during the night and asked if we would speak to the Manager. The Manager was very gracious and apologetic and discounted our room as a gesture. We use Crowne Plaza hotels regularly and often have club rooms which gives us access to club lounges, where you can have free drinks & nibbles early in the evening. The nibbles here were disappointing. A few meat & fish tiny canapes. Nothing else, even a few nuts & crisps would have been great. Although there were several complimentary alcoholic drinks to choose from, including a very good red wine. Also, in the morning there is a complimentary continental breakfast in the club lounge. This was very good, with ample choice. Great location in the Northern Quarter and just a 2 minute walk to the Arndale shopping centre. We will definitely stay here again.
