Ok, first the good: It is easy to find and incredibly convenient to terminal. The rooms are fantastically designed, the “hotel staff” were efficient and the bed was very comfortable. That's where the good ends....
Expect to pay for internet. However, there was no guarantee from front desk that the WIFI would work in the room (and it did not), only wired was guaranteed in room. This is unacceptable in this day of tablets and smart phones. The lobby bar had free internet if you had an IHG member card which I did (or presumably if you bought a drink?). My co-worker could not retrieve her IHG card number from phone unless she had internet which meant she had to either buy internet (to get free internet) or walk out to the terminal to get her IHG card info and then walk back in to use the in free lobby internet. Isn’t there an easier way?
BTW, You can get free Changi Airport WIFI in the airport terminal.
I am so sorry I went to the restaurant. We went to the “very upscale” buffet. The selection looked great, but the freshness of the food was marginal. The price was ridiculously high. I wished I had gone anywhere else. Finally, the wait staff were rude and continued to interrupt even after I asked him to please step back unless we requested assistance.
This is a very fancy hotel but falls short in my final tally. I don't mind spending $300+ USD for a great hotel but in my opinion this one is overpriced for what you get. If you are a newbie to international travel and you want "easy" at any expense, or if you absolutely need to be located at the airport this place could be what you are looking for.
Unless I were pressed for a hotel at the airport, the city is close and easy to get to, I'd recommend staying in town and away from this Crown Plaza. I would only stay here if no other choice and I certainly would not eat dinner here again.
If you can stay inside security at the terminal and you want a clean basic hotel for transit, try the Ambassador Transit Hotel. The Ambassador is not the same high end hotel like Crown, but a great room for a fraction of the cost.
