It's been a while since I've stayed at the Crowne Plaza Auckland, and it's great to see that IHG Rewards Club Platinum members are now clearly recognised and offered the important benefits of the programme at checkin - a room upgrade, late checkout, free Wi-Fi, and a warm welcome from the front desk staff, although I'm sure all guests can expect the latter! Previously this had been a little inconsistent, so I was very pleasantly surprised.
I would choose a 5 star rating but for a couple of things. Firstly, a previous guest had asked for the a/c in the room to be set uncomfortably warm, so some fine tuning by maintenance was needed to get it back to a sane level. I prefer the independent a/c units at the Holiday Inn near the airport, but I realise this isn't really practical in a high rise building. Secondly, I had paid for my parking in the adjacent Atrium car park as part of my room bill, but the parking card wasn't properly validated, so the barrier wouldn't let me out. Thankfully, the attendant opened it manually. The yummy eye fillet steak from room service was worth an extra half star, but TripAdvisor doesn't allow this, so, consider this a 4 1/2 star review!
To management: Please consider offering at least one easily accessible power point by the bed, since working at a desk at the end of a long day can sometimes be a bit much. Please and thank you!
