This is like so many hotels in the middle east; It tries hard with what it has to offer. And what it has is a great location and dated facilities. If you are looking for a base to explore the Dhofar region than this is a good choice. I have not stayed at the Hilton but I have dined there. I can't see how you can overlook the Hilton's awful view of a port? Is the Hilton more up to date? Sure. But I would still pick the Crowne Plaza over the Hilton. The Crowne Plaza has better grounds (again a bit dated) which provides a better resort type experience in my opinion. Keep in mind that after reading some reviews, it seems visitors are expecting a tropical resort paradise in Salalah. It won't happen. None of the hotel are up to that standard and I have also stayed at the Marriot.
Bottom line, if you prefer to stay hear the town of Salalah, stay at the CP. If you want to enjoy Salalah, rent a car and get out and explore he region. It's an amazing place.
