If this hotel were in the United States it would certainly be a high end Intercontinental Hotel...not a crowne plaza. The entrance is clad with Marble and Granite. The entire hotel is very well done. Our room was very spacious with a great sea view as well as having floor to ceiling windows. The spa facilities are awesome and they even have thermal water pools, which is great for your skin after a long flight. I had a massage and a facial and I was very happy with the service. Directly behind the hotel is a store called "Ozdilek"...which I can best describe as a mix between a Walmart and a Target. The owner of the hotel owns the Ozdilek stores. After having an extremely expensive breakfast at the hotel I found the Ozdilek store had practically the same breakfast for less than half what the hotel charges. I only ate breakfast once at the hotel and the rest of time I ate at Ozdilek. (BTW...I dont eat fast food or junk food, the Ozdilek store has some really good healthy and yummy food! Give it a try!) You will see a lot of other reviews that mention the hotel is not close to the city center...and that is true...but the hotel has a free shuttle that will pick you up and drop you off on an hourly basis. I usually like staying close to the city center but this time I was glad I didn't stay in downtown Izmir. There are a few things I will point out that I did not like. The internet service is outrageously expensive and the connection is very slow. I am surprised a hotel like this doesn't have a fast internet connection. The breakfast at the hotel is too expensive for what is provided...but luckily I found Ozdilek. The weakest link at the hotel is the mediocre staff. I had OK service at the spa but the staff at the rest of the hotel was less that what I expected. As a guest of a high end hotel you would expect the staff to step back or let you pass as you are passing by them or when you are both walking in the same direction. At this hotel various staff members bumped into me 3 times in different occasions. I also had to stop walking in order to let staff pass. This occured at the bell hop area and the valet area. The staff in general is "stand-off-ish" they do not try to develop a rapport with guests. A hotels most prized asset is the staff. I would trade in all of the granite and marble for a top notch staff. There are some items that need improvement but overall the hotel is great and I would recommend this hotel.
