Stayed one night with my partner and found the hotel to be a ultra modern spotlessly clean hotel with impeccable staff and fast friendly service.We booked an advance purchase rate direct with the hotel including breakfast for £82 a night.,very reasonable for a 4 star city centre hotel.The bed and pillows were so soft and comfy i slept like a log.We stayed on the 5th floor at the back of the hotel,not a very pleasant view however very quiet unlike the front of the hotel as its on a major busy road.The aircon worked very well and despite other reviews i found it to be very quiet.The bathroom had large towels and 2 bath robes which were lovely and soft.The seperate power shower was very powerfull and the bath nice and deep for a long soak.Good quality toiletries were supplied as well as a notice to cotact reception if others were needed.The hotel was very quiet with maids working quietly and guests respecting others.The hotel itself is in a good location very near to the arndale shopping centre and near shops and restaurants.Car parking is £15 per day and only 2 minutes walk away in local NCP car park.Breakfast was extremely nice with perfectly chilled fresh juices,smoothies,usual yogurts fruit cereal etc.Hot cooked breakfast was all buffet style and delicious.Staff serve hot drinks and are very fast to serve as well as friendly service with a genuine smile! idont understand some negative reviews on this hotel at all and all i can imagine is that some people are never happy at all.I am definitely going to stay in this hotel next time i return to manchester and highly recommend to anyone.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Crowne Plaza on Jan 10th 2009 as a Christmas present. I had booked tickets for the Velodrome and needed a very nice place to put our heads for the night. I really don't understand the reviews that others may put but we had a very different stay. It was amazing! The hotel is easy to get and to and looks so modern and clean! We parked at the local NCP (Printworks, I think...) down the street. We arrived 3 hours early and didn' expect our room to be ready, but it was and we checked in very quickly. We were on the 7th floor and when we etered the room it was amazing! The coloured glass and the gorgeous decor was breath taking, very nice. The bathroom was well equiped and very clean. The bed was so soft and comfy. I slept like a log! No traffic noise, but we were on the 7th floor so I can't comment, but the road down below was busy all night. The views from the foor to ceiling windows were great, it's inner city manchester but it's great to look at things from the 7th floor. We drank in the bar after the velodrome and found the prices to be steep but what do you expect from a very nice city centre hotel. We didn't have breakfast at the hotel but got a table in Cafe North next door. Get there before 11am as you won't get a table. I think everyone eats here when it wasn't included in the Crowne Plaza. Check out was very quick, we ddn't have a tab so checking out was handing over the key card.
