Was only at the Crowne Plaza for 2 nights recently on a work trip - wished I had more time here. It's a great hotel. Location is fantastic. The tram stops out the front of the hotel (look for trams going to "Happy Valley") and the underground train station is only two short blocks from the hotel located underneath a large shopping and food complex.
Rooms were really well proportioned. I'm a tall guy and was expecting to get a small room, but the king bed standard room is really quite large by Asian and European room standards. Bed was incredibly comfortable and the bathroom and rain shower were just what I needed to unwind after a long trip into Hong Kong.
Pool near the rooftop is great - although I was there in a colder month, so didn't use it. My only criticism if I was to be very picky is that the gym is very underwhelming. I tend to use hotel gyms quite a bit when travelling and I thought the lack of weight machines was a bit of a disappointment - but as I say, this really is only a very minor point.
Breakfast is incredibly good. The selection of Asian and Western cuisine is well thought out and ample in options. And best of all, it all tastes as good as it looks. Really is a wonderful way to start the day.
This was my first time at the Crowne Plaza and I can tell you that whenever I travel to Hong Kong in the future for work and personal trips, I will always stay here. Very highly recommend it.
