We checked into Crowne Plaza for a Saturday night; we parked up early and on the off chance tried to check in - it was 8.45am so we weren't expecting anything to be ready. We received a lovely welcome to the hotel by the check in desk and they promptly looked at the system and checked us in - what a great start!
It's a good location for getting in and out of the capitals, we just took the DLR into Tower Hill - I would just warn anyone relying on public transport to check the TFL website. They often do engineering work on a weekend which means the DLR will be disrupted.
All the hotel staff we met were helpful and courteous. The room was lovely - the bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in, which made getting up the next morning quite difficult!
We were given a £10 voucher for breakfast which we thought was great value for a hotel like this and especially for the selection and as much as you wanted to eat.
Will definitely look forward to staying here again!
