The Crowne Plaza Hotel is a nice enough hotel but I suppose all decent hotels in Seattle costs an arm and a leg. If you have any mobility issues there is about a 5 block steep hill to the downtown core, so this hotel might not be for you. No hot tub or pool unfortunately but the breakfast buffet was quite nice. Had one issue with the room, the air conditioning was not working so they immediately changed and upgraded us. Thanks.

Hi Mikey 123321, Thank you for taking the time to write a review on TripAdvisor. I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us and sincerely apologize for the issue you had with the HVAC unit in your guestroom. I was glad to read they immediately changed rooms and upgraded you. Seattle terrain is hilly (the city is built on seven adjacent hills). Most streets north/south have an easy grade, but east west is a steeper grade.When walking down to the waterfront we always recommend taking Pike or Pine which have the least incline. Thank you again for your comments and we hope to see you again soon. Kind Regards, Cristy Smith General Manager

As a Platinum Elite member, we stay in quite a few CP’s and by far this one was disappointing. When we approached, it was almost difficult to even know we had arrived. So nondescript, and unwelcoming. Footprint of of hotel is small. Dingy restaurant and the sad bar is on the second floor. We walked up to the bar on a Friday Night and no one was there. The bartender was super friendly and very helpful...but the ambiance was dreadful. The room was meh....bathroom remodel was decent and everything g was clean. We arrived on Thursday and on Saturday called and asked for towels. While we were out, towels arrived, but no one picked up the huge pile of towels - that they had to walk over to leave clean ones. There is a large outdoor patio- absolutely barren. No furniture to be found. With beautiful weather - people like to enjoy the environs. Maybe this is just banquet space - but it’s truly a disappointment. Overall it’s 3 stars...Just too many negatives. Would have To look elsewhere next time.

Dear tanya4, Thank you for being a Platinum Elite IHG Reward Club Member and for your loyalty to IHG. Please except my sincere apologies for not meeting your expectations. It was good to read the bartender was super friendly and helpful. I was very disappointed to read that we did not pick up the used towels when we delivered fresh towels to your room. I have reviewed your comments with the Director of Housekeeping who has provided additional training so we make improvements to the service we provide. We appreciate your business hope you will give us another opportunity to serve you the next time you travel to Seattle. Regards, Cristy Smith General Manager

Sally and I spent a restful night at the Crown Plaza. For an out-of-towner, the valet parking was a relief, especially with Seattle traffic. On arrival we had a drink and then took a walk. The hotel is close to Harborview Medical Center and several other hospitals; also many restaurants nearby. We returned for dinner to the Regatta Bar and Grille and enjoyed the Cobb and Caesar salad entrees with a glass of wine. The room was comfortable with a view and the hotel staff very helpful. We’ll definitely return.
