I stayed at the Crowne Plaza for one night to attend a conference. As expected of a Crowne Plaza, the accommodations were clean, the staff friendly, and the amenities what you would expect in a hotel. I loved that the room access was via tap of the keycard, not insertion which can get clumsy and difficult at times at other hotels.
Unfortunately there was a hair (not mine) underneath the bathroom sink. I found the bathtub and shower old fashioned, however clean apart from the hair small mishap. I was disappointed to be charged $4 to heat up my oatmeal (specialised diet due to illness). A microwave would have helped greatly for this reason and for heating up baby milk etc.
The bed was comfortable and I didn't use any of the other amenities. It was a great location - just across the bridge to the convention centre and for this, I'd probably stay here again.
