I love this lobby. As you walk in the door, your jaw will drop. Although I am still living in Kuwait for another two weeks, I have been in this hotel many times, booked friends in rooms and booked in business colleagues. They have never disappointed in the rooms, service, food (8 restaurants), spa, pool or exercise rooms.
I do have to mention Marianne (and all the ladies behind the gym desk) who are excellent employees that bring a friendly atmosphere to the gym!
I will miss the Crowne!

I stayed at the Crowne Plaza Kuwait for 21 nights. Overall the hotel was nice and the hotel staff was pleasant and with a very serviceable attitude. The fitness facilities and the pool was just great not to mention the free Internet. Rooms were very comfy and the only downside was that they could have better illuminated. In a nutshell a good hotel and especially for business travelers.

Room Tip: The neighborhood of the hotel seemed a bit rough in the beginning but walking through it we managed...

I stayed with my family in Crowne Plaza in Novemebr 2012. Wonderful infra with great and lavish rooms, with good facilities. Friendly staff and delicious food is served in cuisine restaurants.

Lobby is beautifully done and it has some memoirs of War also, when the hotel was hit badly. Cafe Shop, Bakery Shop, Chocolate Shop, etc makes this hotel unique. Gym along with Swimming pool, and other amenities add value to hotel.

Pleasant stay in Kuwait!!

Good hotel, comfortable room, staff is polite, but some improvements could be done especially when ordering a taxi as I've had to wait twice 10 minutes even though I booked early enough the taxi!
The breakfast was alright but nothing exceptional.
Same for the gym, nothing exceptional either.

Home away from home!! Not really....because the hotel boasts of some very opulent interiors, many restaurants, a well equipeed gym and spa- but definately a place you"d want to be if you are away from home! What makes it comfortable is very friendly and eager to help staff,delicious food and decent rooms! Truly a very good choice! Strongly recommended!

Stayed here when I was in Kuwait for work. Compared to the other places Ive stayed in Kuwait this place probably had the most friendliest staff. Great atmosphere the food was great. Overall this place is outstanding.

Only 15 mins from the Airport and good breakfast and room service.

Spend some time looking at the pictures of how badly it was damaged during the gulf war.

Room Tip: The club rooms are fantastic.
