Good Location

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)

Helpful at the front desk but the housekeeping staff has a lot to be desired. My first three days the housekeeper did nothing more than make the bed. I attributed it to the weekend at first but I still mentioned it to the front desk on Tuesday morning.

The breakfast buffet was good but expensive. If you pay in advance at the front desk you do get a discount. Even with the discount it was still expensive. 14 GBP in advance or 20 GBP walking in. If you are a big breakfast eater there is a McDonald's two blocks away for a third the price.

I am not a fan of the Euro styling. The half doors in the shower may look cool but in reality they leak everywhere and spray water everywhere if you are not standing right under the shower against the wall. Very inconvenient to say the least.

Unique Quality: Location...location...location.
Next to the fun end of Broad Street, Palisades Mall, Bull Ring and the Mailbox. A very short walk to the New Street train station if you need to get somewhere.

I've stayed at the Crowne Plaza on many occasions over the past 18 months.

If you book in advance, you can often get rooms for as low as £60 - which is excellent when you consider that even the Premier Inn and Travel Lodge in the city centre charge around the same price.

The location is not the most aesthetically desireable - you are set back from a busy, polluted road and the building from the outside (although revamped) is not breathtaking.

However, inside is a different story. The rooms are a good size, very contemporary and stylish. If you're lucky (or you ask) you could get a room on a high floor overlooking the front of the hotel - at night, the lights from the city are fabulous.

Unique Quality: One of the best things the Crowne Plaza has going for it is location - and price for that location!

Right next to the prestigious Mailbox (designer shops, classy bars and good restaurants); 5 minute walk from New Street Station; 10 minute walk into town for The Bullring and the High Street.

I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a contemporary room without a colossal price tag.

Directions: Next to The Mailbox and within short walking distance of the city centre
