I saw pictures of this hotel in a 1994 Israeli movie when it was the Jerusalem Hilton. Apart from new TVs, new beds and a new name, the owners of this hotel do not appear to have spent a cent on this hotel in the ensuing 20 years. This hotel is tired and drab and in desperate need of a refurbishment. The signs of 20 years of usage were to be found all over the room that I was in. The towels in the bathrooms were hideous. I have seen better in a youth hostel. As for the claims of some reviewers that there is something special about their breakfasts, I have been to a number of hotels in Israel, and I would rate the Jerusalem Crowne Plaza as being amongst the most mediocre. If you are attending a function at the nearby Convention Centre, its location is convenient. Otherwise there is little to recommend this hotel.
