I stayed at the Crowne Plaza Kitchener hotel last December and found quite a few changes from my previous stay. This used to be Delta hotel with the typical delta features which i rather like.
Some changes are good- overall brighter look with a new paint job and no more long jaunts to the elevators in the alternate section.
The colour is a bit icy- a sort of green which is not the warmest vibe for a December stay.This colour seems to permeate the lounge/restaurant area.
The bar...next to the resto, is a bit devoid of welcoming atmosphere..a bit clinical for my taste.
Also there seems to be 24/7 disco music playing on the PA system which ...especially at breakfast, I found annoying. Something softer would would be better.
The rooms seem smaller as they have been seemingly re-designed. the bathroom in my room was very small and, due to the designer's strange idea of space-management, had a large, modern basin which took up all the surface area of the sink, thereby precluding any space for a toiletries bag. Impractical and just a head-scratcher.
The staff are still very agreeable and helpful and it's nice to see the same restaurant staff who were always nice and friendly.
All in all, the modern re-do doesn't work for me but I suppose the great location makes up for these petty annoyances.
But please- gimme some sink space won't you?
