“Not brand new but still in the top 3 hotels in Qingdao”
Reviewed 19 December 2013

I stayed 6 times in this hotel, I even recommended it to my mother and sister when they visited me in china,
The hotel is over 10 years old,but it's well maintained and still high in standard.
The bathrooms need to be a bit more maintained but only when you search for spots,the overall impression of the hotel rooms is more then good, I slept in normal but also in executive rooms and I must say both are good.
The breakfast is well sorted, you can get western,Chinese and Japanese items.
The Italian restaurant is a must to visit,also the Japanese restaurant.
The staff is friendly,most of me speak a bit English.
The check in is prompt, the hotel general manager Mr Bamberg was very friendly,professional and you can see that he leads the hotel by example over 10 years!

The location in the heart of the city is great,you can reach the mall by walk, the marina is 10 minutes walk away, there are many bars and restaurants around and for every taste there is something to find

The hotel is for both good, business or family

To get a taxi takes less then a minute and the doormen knows his job!
I will come back again.

This is an excellent hotel with a courteous and efficient staff. The room I had was a spacious 1 bedroom suite with two bathrooms. It was nicely decorated,quiet and comfortable. Centrally located to malls, many restaurants and shops. Olympic sailing village within walking distance. You can take a short bus ride to the beach areas but make sure you have exact change for the bus. Should you desire to purchase a Bentley there is a dealership in the lobby. The breakfast buffet is fantastic with many serving stations offering different world cuisines. The fitness center seemed a little worn but there is a nice bowling alley in the basement with multiple lanes as well as a billiard room.

The Crowne Plaza is in a great location- right near several shopping malls and a short walk from the ocean, but if you're looking for sandy beaches, those are pretty far away.

As IHG Platinum members, they upgraded us to a suite. It was very nice and clean, though it's showing its age. The fitness center and pool were great and the staff was always friendly and helpful. Our room faced north so it wasn't such a great view- just buildings and a little bit of Fu Shan.

At check-in, we were told we get two breakfasts, but the next day, we were given a bill for over RMB300. I explained to the waitress, she talked with the manager and they found I was mistakenly told the rate included breakfast, but that they'd waive the charges. I thought it was handled very professionally.

The hotel seems better suited to business travelers. During this stay with my family, we were also at the Hyatt Regency. It's a little more expensive, but I felt that it was a far better hotel- especially for leisure as it's right by the beach and mountains. Still, we had a good stay at the Crowne Plaza and very satisfied.

Room Tip: Choose ocean view

The view from my room is great - I can see the shore line of Qingdao and the Olympic sailing centre clearly from my room. The hotel is centrally located. The room is spacious. It will be good if the buffet breakfast can have more variety particularly Chinese dishes.

Recently stayed here for four nights on business , hotel is now fairly old and this is starting to show.
Rooms are small and bathroom a little compact to say the least.
Fair choice of restaurants again usually a little pricey but this is general in China.
There are plenty more alternatives in Qingdao and I would look at the Intercontinental next time , this has a great positon overlooking the harbour.
Overall to sum up , adequate hotel , standard accommodation , average value for money , don't think I'll be back.

Room Tip: Look at other options before you book.
