I stayed here for 2 nights while I was in the area on work. It is about a 10 min drive from the airport and is right on the motorway network so very handy. I was 'upgraded' to the Executive Rooms by virtue of having Platinum Ambasador with the Priority Club loyalty programme.
The room, as everyone has said, it a slightly odd shape - when you get into the room the size was fine (I had 2 queen beds) but getting in the door feels a bit snug and you are on top of your neighbours door. The room was modern and had all the amienities you could want. The bathroom was very modern and had a nice rain shower. The bed was very comfy and there was a fridge that you could put stuff into should you wish.
All sounds great but I had 2 issues - you can hear everything in the next room - my neighbour had their TV on (normal loudness) but I could hear everything - I actually checked to see if the connecting door was ajar it was that lound! The second is the fancy lifts - great to get up and down but they beep constantly - like a hearing test! It drove me insane! Oh there was a third - the air conditioning is VERY loud!!
The bar is good and the barman super friendly. I ate in there one night and the food was superb - plus you can get the menu from the restaurant next door too so a good selection.
I do love Crowne Plazas and this one asthetically is great - but they need to sort out the noise issue!
