Decent central hotel to stay in with the Mrs for a Sat night next month? Thinking either Double Tree or Crowne Plaza, both coming in around 125, anyone got any experience of either or other suggestions?

The Hilton Doubletree is the former Mint Hotel, and before that, City Inn. It's hardly changed so if you're familiar with the former brands then you'll know what to expect. Businessy, closest hotel to Piccadilly Station, a few Mins walk from the cooler end of the northern quarter.
Crowne Plaza is closer to Victoria station and on the edge of the more commercial northern quarter. I've never stayed there though so can't comment, but it faces onto a carpark, but then it's not too far away from the marble arch pub.

Thanks - gone with double tree as best deal atm. Nothing is too far away it seems, so should be ok. Only for one night anyway…

^ do they have dodgy satellite feeds though? We want to watch the arsenal game which is Saturday 3pm KO
27 Feb 2014 14:59
Both have full subscription.

Thanks but we don't need somewhere with BT or Sky as they can't show 3 o'clock Saturday games, we need somewhere with a foreign satellite feed

Which coffee shops are decent in central?
Also looking for somewhere for a laidback Sunday breakfast / brunch, I was recommended Cornerhouse or Simple
