Just one night at the Crowne Plaza but wish it was longer. Dubious start as my colleague had booked our rooms for the next night, incorrectly. Ashley, who checked us in, swiftly found us rooms with a minimum of fuss and cancelled the incorrect booking. The room really was excellent although I could not connect to the wifi and the Eames desk chair in my room was a cheap Chinese fake rather than an original from Vitra - surprising in a hotel of this quality. Bed and bathroom were excellent, important points for a one-night stay. The bar was good fun although full of tourists enjoying a loud quiz via a PA system - beware this if travelling on business. Ate at the Italian restaurant but had to persuade the staff to seat us at one of the many empty outdoor tables, they wanted us to sit inside and have a drink whilst they checked bookings.....at 2200 at night! Food was good but not great. Was able to check out in the exec. Lounge in the 6th floor the following morning, which was helpful. Will definitely return.
