I stayed here for 4 days or a conference. The room was very comfortable, Red Salt restaurant was great both for dinner[one of the best well-done tenderloin steak] and the buffet breakfast. The location was great. It just didn't have an indoor pool and a 24H gym[There is an outdoor pool and a gym though].

Professional reception and concierge service. Rooms were larger than I expected and quite cosy. Comfortable beds and pillows, bathrooms somewhat dated but satisfactory, sufficient closet space. Rooms tidied efficiently daily. Didn't dine for breakfast but did have a function at the glebe room which was serviced well by the wait staff although the food was only so-so (often the case...

Stayed for 2 nights at the end of a parliamentary sitting week. Check in was quick and efficient and staff member offered the free IHG club sign up to get the complimentary free wifi which was great. Room was not as modern as I was expecting and I think the rooms have seen better days. Nothing specifically wrong with it,...

Stayed here to attend a function at National Convention Centre - the closest hotel to NCC (essentially co-located without being same building). This is a perfectly functional and acceptable hotel - ideal for NCC functions. Not sure I would stay here for a family holiday though. Internal "atrium" style architecture- so slightly noisy for some rooms located over open bar...

This was our second visit. We had a lovely, quiet room overlooking the park. Friends had suggested other places to stay so we checked them out. Crowne Plaza's location is unbeatable and we love the view. We will return.

We stayed here for a weekend in order to see the Versailles exhibition. I am so pleased to write that this hotel's location is excellent. It took a ten minute cab ride to the National Art Gallery and there were also cabs ready to pick us up once we'd had enough time to view the spectacular exhibition. The breakfast buffet...

I booked here as part of a conference - what a nice hotel. City Center has interesting shops and eateries within ten or fifteen minutes walking -fairly well lit, and I felt secure even as a solo female seeking dinner eell past 9.
