I chose this hotel because it was walking distance to Canberra Centre where there is mall of shops. The lobby to the hotel is decent and wheelchair friendly. The room needs a bit of updating in terms of colours overall but decent enough. But for the price it tags itself on I would prefer the white square tiles in the... More

I stayed here on business a couple of months ago. I have stayed in many hotels across Canberra and there are really only a few that are above average. The room itself was ok, bathroom a bit dated. Room service was ok and I didn't wait to long for it to arrive. The only issue I had was the noise... More

Stayed at the Crown Plaza which was very good. Request a park view room to get away from street noise. Breakfast was outstanding and is included in some rates along with daily drink/canapé coupon for the bar and water bottles in the room. You can join their hotel club (IHG) and get 3 GB free Internet daily. Long term guests... More

Placed here by work check in was without issue. Advised wifi costs I unless you join the hotel rewards scheme which is free to do so. Wifi was hit and miss & needed to be renewed every 24 hours, with it down for a day during my stay. Rooms fine, generous desk, bed comfy, pillows super soft and bathroom clean... More

I hate to say this but anything Australian (Australians must be the friendliest people in the Western world), But this hotel was a bit of a disappointment. There is nothing wrong with the hotel and the staff is predictably quite friendly. However, the hotel seems virtually unchanged from when I last stayed here 8 to 10 years ago. Several pieces... More

This met our expectations as one of the Crowne Plaza chain but the staff and the general attention to detail made it stand out as a great place to stay in Canberra. The room was excellent, well equipped, faced the park and had ambiance and a relaxed, friendly feel about it - also clean and well equipped. The only draw... More

The hotel is a great location if you are visiting the convention centre - being so cold I didn't want to have to walk very far!! The roadworks outside of the hotel are fine, as the taxi seemed to know exactly where to go and what to do. So although it doesn't look great immediately upon arrival, it doesn't really... More

Our stay was ok. The rooms are a little tired. You could see that house cleaning has tried to scrub the bathroom, but its a little beyond that. The king size bed was comfortable and the linen was clean. There is some road works going on out the front of the building. It was a hassle to find the hotel... More

Great hotel, good breakfast, excellent efficient staff, clean spacious rooms in perfect location. We have stayed here on a number of occasions and found the standard consistent. No complaints and will definitely return time and time again!Value for money on every level! The rooms are bright, airy and well laid out.
