I really enjoyed my extended stay here. The location is fantastic, the room was fantastic (I was fortunate to be upgraded) & the staff were lovely. The only "issue" was noise from other guests as it seems to market towards hen parties & groups of lads in Manchester to party - but it really wasn't a huge problem (it was limited to the weekend only).

We stayed at the Crown Plaza for a mid week stay to see a show and visit the Greman Market.
Check in was easy and we were allocated our room in less than a minuet. The receptionist was very friendly and chatty. We had a standard Queen size room wich was very spacious and very well appointed. The level of cleanliness was very high and the amount complimentary extras were above what I was expecting.
The bed was exceptional comfortable and the request for extra pillows was not a problem.
Although the room looked out onto a very busy road there was not traffic noise in the room and the red glass window panel cut out the glare.
There was a wide range of options available at breakfast from continental to a 'Full English' that was well cooked and not greasy.
The Hotel had a modern and contemporary feel about it and a high standard overall. Will stay here again with out a doubt and will not hesitate to recommend it to any one who is looking for a hotel in Manchester.

Went to Manchester to see the Eagles, we have never stopped overnight in Manchester, so we wanted to make sure we had a good place to stay. We wanted a hotel which was situated between Piccadilly Railway station and the Phones for U arena, and this hotel was ideally situated.
We were a group of 8 girls, staying in two apartments, who had came to Manchester for the Christmas Markets, Christmas shopping, festive drinks, & to catch up with friends that lived near by. The apartments were perfect for us. Having read other reviews with such mixed reviews we were all wondering what to expect but were pleasantly surprised. Both of our apartments were well equipped, well maintained, spotlessly clean, with cosy bedding, body shop toiletries supplied in the bathroom, & nice large guest towels. The staff were all really friendly, & helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for them. We were on the second floor facing the Bird cage night club, & whilst we did hear noise at kicking out time, but really if you stay in accommodation that is opposite a night club, in the centre of town, what do you expect?! My advice would be to have a few more drinks, so you sleep through it! ;-) The location of these apartments is fantastic, right near to the shops, bars, restaurants, & the Arndale Centre.
