There is surely no hotel in a better location for access to the old town! Plus it boasts a spectacular view of the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain from the full length windows in the lobby bar. When I booked some months ago using IHG points, the hotel was a Crowne Plaza. Recently it was upgraded to an Intercontinental. As others... More

We went to Crown plaza Lijiang for celebrating my mother's 70 year birthday. As a loyal guest, I chose Crown plaza without any hesitation. Hotel is located just in the middle of old castle. You can walk to every location by foot. Hotel is so luxurious and gives feelings like resort hotel in the beach. For my mother's birthday, hotel... More

You can stay very comfortably nearby for half the price, but this hotel has all the amenities a weary traveler could ever ask for. My club room was huge and beautifully appointed, the location is perfect and the staff were great. I don't like the term "5 star" because it is all too often misused, but this hotel pushes all...

The Crowne Plaza Ancient Town has all the amenities you would expect of a five-star hotel, plus one big advantage. It is literally on the doorstep of the old quarter, with its cobblestoned streets, running streams and exotic local craft shops. You slip through a gate in the hotel wall, staffed 24-7 by a sentry who unlocks it for you,... More

Still freezing and looking for respite, our guide in Lijiang suggeste we look at the Crown Plaza, as she believes they have "air conditioning" Chinese verbiage for "heat"! We spent the full day sightseeing in sub freezing weather and were ready for a "warm" even temperate at this point, room. The guide made the reservations for us and negotiated a... More

Stayed for five nights at the end of the 2014, the hotel offered much better than expected environment inside and outside our room, and the staffs are courteous, proactive and helpful. It is situated in a very convenient location, next to an ancient town where you can find eateries and shops easily. Things can be improved included cleanliness of the... More

I pondered if I should score it by comparison to just Chinese hotels, or to other hotels in Asia and the world... Decided for the later, and gave it "only" four dots.
