I think this is an older hotel, but the rooms are up to date with great furnishing and an excellent bed. My only complaint about the room was a noisy and erratic heater/air conditioner. If I stayed more than one night I might have changed rooms.
As an IHG Priority Club member you get a goody bag, free internet and a free breakfast. That's a good thing, but I wonder why they don't offer free parking in their spacious garage area? They want to charge you $20 a day, $15 if you're a member. I can appreciate that the hotels on King St charge for parking, but the Crowne Plaza is several blocks away. Free parking would be a great incentive to stay there.
Overall, it's the room that counts, and this room was spacious, comfortable and worth the price when compared to others in the area.
