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.

On entering the Holiday Inn the first thing that struck me was the smell.....very clean smelling and the whole place looked spotless. The staff on reception (all young men, btw) were exeptionallly helpful and polite. When the computer crashed for a little time and we couldn't get our checkin card, they very kindly asked us to bear with them, offered us a seat and free drink whilst we waited.
The room was spotlessly clean and once again smelled clean. Shower/bathroom once again spotless.
Breakfast in the morning was simple as expected, but everything laid out in a professional manner, croissants, fresh fruit all types of beverages and also a choice for a cooked breakfast and facilities to make toast. The staff at breakfast were excellent. Very very polite, the lady who was clearing the tables and the gentleman re-stocking cooked items were very efficient.
It is the only place i can say i have been to recently were the staff have been genuinely polite and helpful...please give them a raise or at least a bonus and keep hold of these staff!! Bad staff you can get anywhere, good staff are harder to find and if you have them, make sure you keep them.

Very convenient. Visited Legoland Discovery Centre and The Lowry, the second of which is only a 10 min walk away.
Hotel bed v comfy and shower good.
Only complaint was that the breakfast rolls were rock hard and a couple of hen party survivors still fully kitted out put me off my brekkie a little!!

Overall, the review should have given 5 stars ratings but for one member of staff. I shall praise all the ladies: manager, breakfast room, night staff (in particular the lovely black lady who directed me to the hotel as my sat nat was totally confused) but the man at the front desk of the night of my arrival was unhelpful and verging rude/giving attitude. His name should be : not-bothered!. When a customer is asking for directions, give them. If you do not know (after all he may be new in town) hand the call to the one who can(the black lady in this instance). He did not, let me down. Let me get more lost, I had to call again this time by miracle finding this very nice and smiling lady and I reached the hotel. I do not blame him for not knowing, I blame him for his rudeness, his lack of foresight and refusal to pass the phone to somebody who resolved the situation in less than 2 minutes. Such as giving the postcode!

I found the restaurant staff to be most helpful. The swimming pool was extremely quiet the morning that I went, so was lovely. I was able to swim my lengths very comfortably. The room was adequate, although the bathroom was quite dated. The location excellent, right in the centre of the town behind Debenhams.

Surprised by the size and comfort level of the double room I stayed in. Free internet (no £12 supplement as stated on Expedia). Hotel staff could not have been more helpful but that's no more than I'd expect from Mancunians.
