We stayed at the 'Crowne Plaza' on the evening before catching an early morning flight. the choice of hotel was entirely based on economics, although having previously stayed at other 'Crown Plaza' hotels, i knew what the hotel offered. Check-in was quick and effective, and the bedroom had everything needed. We chose to eat at the hotel, and tried the attached Asian restaurant. Decent meal, although more expensive than the quality deserved. However, i was very surprised that the bill included a mandatory 12.5% 'service charge'. I had not seen any mention of such a charge on the menu (perhaps it was there and I missed it). However, the service provided by any of 3 servers, each with limited English was, at best, perfunctory, and undeserving of the mandatory service charge. Since I live in Canada, I am well used to the practice of 'tipping'. However, I want to be the one who dictates what the level of service deserved, not hotel management.
Overall, I would stay at the 'Crowne Plaza' again whenever I am flying in or out of Manchester airport.
