As a travel agency owner and agent, our policy is to sample as many of the resorts we personally recommend, generally speaking to our high volume areas, to do so in a through manner, I brought along some of my toughest clients, including my five year old daughter. The Crowne Plaza is located in Givat Ram, a very central location in terms of overall area for Jerusalem. I will get to the free shuttle service later. You are less than 15 minutes walking time to both the central bus station, and light rail station. This is an invaluable asset for efficient and inexpensive travel around Jerusalem. In terms of sightseeing the Knesset, and the Israel Museum are both 15 minutes walk, downhill. The very convenient shuttle service that departs every two hours to both Mamilla adjacent to the Jaffa gate, and to the Ben Yehuda street outdoor area, is very handy to avoid expensive Taxi rides at tourist rates. The Crowne Plaza has a very modern, and expansive lobby. Meeting facilities are top notch as well as essential services for business travelers. The Club level I found was a quiet place to conduct the few meetings I had, with good coffee and fresh fruit easily on hand. Both the Indian restaurant located in the hotel and the dining facilities were also top notch. The expansive breakfast provided some very quality pastries and coffees and teas. The staff very much went out of their way to cater to a picky five year old. Shopping in the hotel is also fair for hotel prices. The House of Shalom jewelry shop is one of the finest in Israel. Our room was considered a standard, was very comfortable with a balcony and wonderful view of the Kneseet and Shrine of the book. The complimentary fruit plate on check in was certainly appreciated. I discovered by wandering around that the hotel has a kids camp, located just by the retractable roof pool. Expert and multilingual councilors were attentive and well in control of their operation. The Pool can be a little busy on Shabbat (Saturday). But this is typical for most of Israel. The staff was also multilingual and very professional. I observed them dealing with all types including very difficult tourists with ease and experience. I don't normally give top marks but this hotel really earned it. Highly recommended to both clients and friends.
