I stayed here only two weeks into the new ownership and aside from some temporary signage the experience was as good as previous stays under the crowne plaza brand.
Excellent service, warm welcome and even an upgrade based on my priority club status level.
One criticism is he wifi - lots of it but a bit weak. There are 4 different login areas and the best are the lobby and restaurent. In the bedroom I found just enough signal in one corner of the room. The result meant skyping my wife in the lobby with lots of odds looks from other guests!
Driver service was also good and prices excellent. Only pity is no priority club points so do I look elsewhere in future?
