              Very close to NEC.

              Internet rate is rediculous. Poor IT service and the way of servicing.

              I was at a 2 day conference elsewhere at the nec so the fact that the hotel was quiet and the bed comfortable rank highly for me!

              The minibar was broken!

              We were contacted by Adriana to tell us that due to an overbooking we would be accommodated at the Holiday Inn instead of the Crowne Plaza. This was handled exceptionally and we had a very enjoyable and well organised stay. Our thanks to all staff at both hotels.

              I found the checking process quick and easy. The staff were all friendly and always ready to help. The rooms were very clean and everything u needed was available and clear information on how to use and operate everything. I really enjoyed my short stay and i will certainly be booking in again

              Everything was excellent.

            • Older travelers

              Very convenient location for the NEC and LG Arena. Clean comfortable room. Reasonable room rate.

              Arrived at 1.15pm and was told that as the hotel had been full the night before we could not check in until 2pm. This then resulted in a ridicolous queue forming at 2pm whilst everyone who had arrived early tried to get checked in. Surely some rooms were ready at 1pm and it would have made more sense to stagger the check in? Also drinks very expensive in the bar (£7+ for a large glass of wine) and when we returned from our event at the LG Arena it was so busy there was nowhere to sit so we ended up taking a drink back to our room. £10 to park the car also seems a little steep.

            • Older travelers

              Staff were, without exception, helpful, professional and pleasant. We ate in both the bar and the restaurant and our food was plentiful and well-prepared. The hotel is ideally located for access to the NEC.

              Inescapable muzak - loud, intrusive and dreadful '80's pop!

              Bed really uncomfortable (prefer memory foam) not spacious even though it is advertised as this, expensive, supposed to be a la carte, definately not. Felt rushed to finish meal. Felt like cafe culture not 5 star would say this is 4. would not stay again

              Location for Lg arena is excellent but hotel is very pricy for food and beverages.Still surprised in this day and age we still have to pay for wi-fi when places like McDonalds can do it for free

            • Older travelers

              We stayed at the Crowne Plaza because of the very close (5mins walk) proximity to the LG Arena.

              No discount for parking when staying at hotel. Did not try b/fast, although it sounded enticing, presume most people staying there are on expenses? Whilst the bed was comfortable, would have been excellent if they had 'duck down' soft pillows.
