The Crowne Plaza Manchester Airport Hotel has unveiled the 2nd phase in a large multi-million pound refurbishment project, now featuring the return of the popular standalone Pan-Asian ‘Sampans’ restaurant and a new Club Lounge.

Flying high after the first phase refurbishment earlier this year which featured a new Open Lobby public space and 299 upgraded bedrooms, the Crowne Plaza Manchester Airport has now unveiled new leisure facilities. Sampans restaurant is returning after a full refurbishment to offer guests a wide range of popular Pan-Asian dishes ranging from Dim Sum, a variety of curries plus noodle and rice dishes to desserts such as the Malaysian Kuih Dar Dar. Open from Wednesday to Sundays, from 6pm to 10pm, the setting is modern and calming for weary travellers.

The new Club Lounge is open to IHG Rewards Diamond Elite members, who have instant access, and any adult guest staying at the hotel who wishes to upgrade, subject to availability. Club Lounge guests can enjoy complimentary soft drinks, tea, coffee, hot chocolate and snacks. Alcoholic drinks are served between 6-8pm along with the chefs’ choice of canapes. Club Lounge members will find the space stylish and peaceful with a range of comfortable seating options and live travel information.

General Manager for the Crowne Plaza Manchester Airport Hotel, Matt Byram commented: “We are delighted to unveil the second phase of our huge refurbishment project. Since reopening the hotel at the beginning of the year the public response has been incredibly positive of the modernisation work so far, so we are pleased to keep adding services and facilities we know our guests will love. Sampans is back, and better than ever, by popular demand as once voted a favourite restaurant in Manchester on TripAdvisor, and the Club Lounge offers an elite experience to our business and travel guests”.
