    Historical Traveler Reviews Crowne Plaza Liverpool - John Lennon Airport

    A real treat

    from

    I remember this building from when I was a child living in Liverpool. When I returned on business, I was delighted to see what they had done with the old terminal of Speke (now John Lennon) airport.

    The hotel is a prime example of the excellent regeneration work that has transformed an area of the city I would once have avoided. Situated on Speke Boulevard, about 7 miles from the city centre, the hotel is right across the road from a retail park and right next to the airport and a David Lloyd Health Club (which hotel residents can use for free.)

    External features have been retained - including the old control tower - and the interior is beautifully decorated with lots of Art Deco features.

    My room was a good size and very comfortable, with all the facilities you would expect from a 4 star hotel. The restaurant meals were good with plenty of choice and the meeting room facilities were good too - even if the range of nibbles at coffee time were as bizarre as I've come to expect at Marriott hotels: pork pies, Eccles cakes; bacon croissants, etc.

    Service was excellent. Every member of staff I came into contact with was polite and friendly - even down to the cleaner, who went out of his way to help me.

    Overall, I was very impressed. And if I was choosing to fly from Liverpool (with an EasyJet deal perhaps) I would be very likely to return and take advantage of their special offers.

    OK to me.

    Stayed at this hotel for one night 18th Feb,2005. Bed mattress not good, but I did hear that they are all to be replaced. Another person in our wedding party got moved and the bed had been slept in and the flannels used as dusters by someone previous.

    Our room, apart from the mattress was fine. The hotel was clean and modern. Would I stay there again? Yes, probably, despite the other couple's experience. Hot buffet wedding food comme ci, comme ca.

    A very bad hotel!

    from

    Being originally from Liverpool, I was impressed that someone had restored the buildng to be used as a hotel. However, I was to be sorely disappointed.

    Being a Marriott hotel, i thought the staff would be the usual friendly attitude. However, I recieved a less than impressive start to me trip. They were rude and their attitude was awful.

    Rooms were dull and dingy and food left a lot to be desired. This was just on the executive floor!

    very noisy in the lounge area as well,

    Would NOT stay here again!

    A Great Place to Stay....

    from

    Five friends and I just returned from a week long trip playing the golf courses in the Liverpool area. We stayed at the Liverpool Marriott South which provides very easy access to all the places we wanted to go.

    We found the hotel to be above expectations and to meet all of our needs quite nicely. The rooms were large, the showers were great, there was access to a business center so we could check e-mail, easy parking, and - across the road - was a Starbucks and a McDonalds.

    This isn't a Ritz or a Four Seasons, but it is a very, very good well run hotel that I will stay at again and commend to others.

    Worst night's sleep ever!

    from

    I picked this hotel because it was next to the airport and we had an early morning flight. The people in the room next to us though stopped up until 2.00 am talking v. loudly - which meant we only got a few hours sleep. Out attempts to get the hotel to do anything about this didn't get very far. Also, the rooms don't seem to have been properly soundproofed.

    The hotel itself is nice enough and you can use the David Lloyd leisure centre next door. Staff were pleasant but could do with using a bit more initiative at times.

    When I left the car in the hotel car park the security barrier was broken. When we returned a week later it was still not working. Luckily the car was ok.

    Perhaps we were just a bit unlucky but I wouldn't go back there again.

    WOW!! A DEFINITE MUST

    from

    My husband and I have just returned from a one night's stay at this wonderfully modern hotel. We made our reservation through Expedia and paid 78 for our Deluxe Room which included full english breakfast. Upon our arrival we were very impressed by the retro decor and were instantly pleased with our choice of hotel. The hotel staff were extremely polite and helpful at all times. We were lucky enough to have a room on the Executive Floor and had full use of the Executive Lounge (complimentary soft drinks and snacks throughout the day). There is also a David Lloyd Leisure Gym right next to the hotel for which the use of the pool etc is complimentary with the hotel.

    If we ever do return to Liverpool and we didn't necessarily want to stay in the centre of town (this hotel is about 6 miles or so out) then this would be our first and only choice.

    WE WOULD BOOK THIS HOTEL OVER AND OVER AGAIN WITHOUT ANY HESITATION WHATSOEVER.

    Ornate Business Hotel

    from

    Nicely decorated albeit overpriced hotel with a Marriott chain feel. Limited room service menu after hours. Rooms were larger than average size and clean. Queen Bed not very comfortable. Concierge staff was helpful and polite. Reception staff could use some work. Hotel does not cash travel checks (GBP) which I think is completely unacceptable for guests traveling. Would stay eleswhere next time.

    Perfection!

    from

    Welcome To 'The Best' should be the sign above the door!Do I have to go any further? From start to finish my experence at the Marriott Liverpool South was excellent! These guys have customer service down to fine art.The meal in starways impeccable, and quite reasonable!If you need any details on the local area, ask Gary on reception, or Albie the conciearge. They know everything and go well out of their way to find you the information.The Ambassodor Suite, where i stayed, was top class, a must for a special occasion!!The sign on the way out should read, 'welcome back to normality!

    Art Deco Delight

    from

    Stayed here as a special treat and was impressed by the attention to detail of the art deco style. The building itself started life as the terminal of Speke airport in the 1930's and was left neglected as the now John Lennon airport was built and extended nearby. We citizens of Liverpool always had a soft spot for the old building and no one was more delighted with the eventual transformation. The rooms are OK, I was extremely disappointed in not having a view of the river and the planes taking off from John Lennon airport. Staff are friendly (it comes to us scousers natural like!) dinner in the restaurant could have been better for what we paid (would probably take a cab to Liverpool or other nearby restaurants in Woolton Village) but breakfast catered for every taste and could not be faulted.

    Yes would recommend staying here, especially if you are flying into Liverppol. Don't leave without a visit to Speke Hall next door, a real tudor manor house!

    Fantastic!!!

    from

    WOW!! what a hotel!

    This was the old airport terminal for liverpool built in the 1930's and opened as a hotel last yesr.

    it is tastfully decorated in art deco with constant links to the "airport" connection.

    i must say trhat the people in liverpool are one of the most friendly i have ever met. But the staff in this hotel exceeded my previous opinion of liverpool people.

    This is a must if you are in liverpool!!

First stop is Bolivia where I'm going to start with a two-week, intensive, Spanish course. I'm meeting ...

In the mean time Nat was able to have a lovely conversation, haul 2 bags off the carousel, use up her half an hour free internet and have a sit down. We came to realise we were in America when we hopped into a yellow cab and the taxi co-ordinator was heckling "bay 2 all day, all day" whilst the taxi man was pondering over if our hostel was actually in New ...

They got onto the subject of Champions League, which is the highest competition for club soccer in the world apparently, and it just so happened Liverpool were playing on Tuesday night in their first appearance in that league for years!

    May 17, Liverpool

    It is about 11 a.m. and we are almost across the Irish Sea destined for
    Liverpool, England. The day is relatively mild with a high of 22
    Celsius. We are sitting on our balcony watching the arrival. It is one
    of the few days we have been able to sit out - but still need a
    sweater. My recommendation to anyone doing this itinerary in May would
    be to not book a balcony cabin. For the most part we have not been able
