Just a short review to recommend the Crowne Plaza in Manchester City Centre. I have stayed here on numerous occasions and have never had any cause for complaint.
The staff are friendly, and efficient (even the trainees!) and the rooms are light, airy and spacious, with very comfortable beds and the usual amenities. My only complaint would be that it takes ages to fill the bath, but that's hardly a show-stopper and there's always the separate shower if you're in a rush.
Breakfast is expensive (surprise...) but for those in the know there is a cafe/coffee shop next door that does excellent breakfasts for about half the price.
The hotel is very conveniently located in the Northern Quarter, within easy walking distance of the Arndale Centre, Printworks and the MEN Arena (or whatever it's called this week).
This hotel is a member of the IHG (Holiday Inn) chain and I'm pleased to say that they always recognise their frequent guests - I have "platinum elite" status in their rewards programme and every time I've stayed here I've been upgraded to a better room (usually with access to the club lounge) and have been offered either extra points or a free drink and snack from the bar. It's nice to have loyalty rewarded for once :-)
