“Comfortable centrally located hotel”
Reviewed 15 March 2013 via mobile

This is a very good hotel when in Abu Dhabi when you want a very good quality hotel while you have no wish for the expensive frills of the more expensive five star hotel.

Good choice of restaurants and coffee shops and bars.

I want to thank the hotel for the welcome they have booked during our visit to Abu Dhabi.
Our stay at the hotel was great. The team and the staff were very caring with us. Allways smiling and very professional, they have participated in making our stay enjoyable. Similarly, the quality of food and service in the restaurants is noteworthy and was perfect.
We spend a very good time in your hotel and we will come back when possible.(and for sure for the next Abu Dhabi Triathlon).

I stayed here for a week recently with my husband. The staff were extremely efficient, courteous, helpful and accommodated our every request. Nothing was too much trouble.
The rooms were spacious, spotless, with really comfy beds and the pillows were a dream.
Ate at all the dining choices; great Italian, fantastic Asian, and the sports bar served good bar food - all at reasonable prices.
The hotel is located in the hub of the business district, easily accessible and close to shopping.
A great welcome to Abu Dhabi.

Having been a regular at this place since when I was 7years old(establishment was previously under the Holiday Inn banner) I can safely say that a lot of things as they age---age gracefully and get better with time...and this place has definately got FANTASTIC over time. Very friendly and helpful staff, rooms spacious and grand looking, beautiful foyer area to relax with tea/coffee, superb continental breakfast-buffet, Cho-Gao hotel to add that extra spice to your nightlife, and to top it, Crowne Plaza is located in Hamdam Street which is one of the best central AD areas to shop, eat and get around within convenient proximity to all the other attractions by cab or car. To all lady shoppers wanting to buy gold ornaments, all the major local Indian Jewellery stores are just a whisker 10min walk away from this hotel. To wrap my review, just go for it, you wont be disappointed.

Room Tip: Ask for free Tea/Coffee coupons upon check-in.

I stayed here for a week, where I met up with husband who is working and Abu Dhabi and in total will be staying there for over 6 weeks. The beds were so comfortable, and rooms spotlessly clean. Lovely cleaning staff, always a joy to speak with. My teenage son loved the pool deck, and we played quite a bit of table tennis. Reception staff totally professional and nothing was too much trouble. Excellent food, especially the Chinese restaurant. It's hasn't got a private beach or a swanky revolving restaurant to boast, but the overall atmosphere and especially the staff make it feel like a seven star hotel.

This is the first time I am posting my review since my several stays at this hotel since July 2012. Most of the time I would stay here on a business trips and once I had brought my family to stay with me. Staff is always attentive and very friendly.
I mostly enjoy both Italian and Asian restaurants; they are both exceptionally good; especially asian one
Special thanks to Marisol who kindly upgrades my room upon check in everytime and especially when I brought my family last December

OK by comparison a lot of hotels have better bedrooms -and a beach etc - so why do I stay here time after time?
The answer is the staff. From reception, cleaners, valet to the regulars in the Club lounge they all make you feel at home and go the extra mile to help. After a long day on site I know that without asking my favorite drink is waiting for me. I am a single female traveler, and made to feel part of the CP family. I can vouch for all restaurants apart from The Garden buffet - its just not my style, but the Italian is superb as is Cho Gao. One of my favorite bars is Heroes with the live band - the International Playboys - make a visit on Tuesdays for the acoustic set - or for those wanting a more chilled experience there is the Level lounge on the rooftop.
The Gym is compact but has adequate equipment - the pool is for lounging not for serious swimming. There is also a hairdressers and beauty salon. Again I have never been disappointed with the service here and my son makes a beeline for the barbers when in town.
Location is city centre which has advantages and disadvantages - step outside the door and you can find every store you need, but at peak hours add on a little extra time to make the journeys. A short taxi ride will take you to some of the more exclusive stores in the Marina Mall, you a one block away from Madinat Zayed Gold Souk where you can haggle for your jewelery or pay for your own bespoke piece to be made in less than a week and the Hamdan centre is there for anyone looking for a bargain.
Value depends on when you are booking but in comparison to other hotels in town its quite good. Book when there is a major exhibition or the Grand Prix is on and expect to pay premium prices anywhere.
Have I stayed in better hotels - yes - but for me this is first stop when traveling to Abu Dhabi - its simply the people and atmosphere.

Room Tip: i book the Club rooms every time - it you can afford the extra you get Breakfast, free internet, a c...
