“Plonked right in the middle of the city”
Reviewed June 18, 2011

Crowne Plaza Hotel Adelaide made us feel very welcome and the staff were very friendly and affable. I arrived half a day before my friend and even though I was early for check-in the staff kindly allowed me up to our room and I was able to settle in. Their instructions on how to get around town was very helpful and their consideration for the intermittent weather extremities was thoughtful. One small concern for such a magnificent refurb are the beds. Very soft and very hard pillows (although they do have a pillow menu - we thought a choice of 6 pillows in our room was more than sufficient !) - think it was just a case of the beds being too soft. Bathroom was very roomy, the water saving shower however makes you think twice about washing your hair (girls beware !).

Once my friend checked in with the rental car they were offered the same courteous service. $32 for overnight parking is a little rich for this small city but that's the problem when you have a rental car.

A nice hotel in the city.

Room Tip: Treat the staff how you wish to be treated !

Was only a very quick trip for business, but overall liked the modern and clean design. The bed was very comfortable and the room was well laid out to maximise space. The food was fine, and if I go back to Adelaide, I would certainly stay here again.

Crowne Plaza Adelaide is the "new kid on the block" for Adelaide. Situated in an excellent area of the CBD, the hotel offers everything for the business and holiday traveller. Excellent door staff and concierge and friendly check-in. The rooms are large, clean and functional. Comfortable bed and spacious bathroom, The restaurant is excellent with a good choice and sensibly-priced menu.

To be frank the room and the hotel itself wasn't too bad. It had been recently refurbished and was relatively quiet (even though it overlooked a car park!) What was really terrible was the service. For what is claimed to be a 5 star hotel it was rubbish! It started with booking the car into the valet parking, it seemed to be a big problem for these guys. Then they wouldn't recommend somewhere to go for breakfast prior to us checking in. Later on we realised we had misplaced our expensive digital SLR camera it was too much trouble for the staff to help us try to locate it. Then to top it off someone tried to access our room at 6am! So would I stay here again? No

The hotel is very modern and clean. We stayed here with a group of 8 friends. The beds are super comfy and pillows superb. Our only complaint is check-in was at 2p.m, we arrived at 3:30. Two of our rooms were not cleaned yet and we were not given our keys until 5 p.m. We were dying for a coffee and not enough cups in one room for us all so they gave us free lattes. Apart from that the spa and pool are nice. Love the furniture in the hotel, well thought out. Overall great stay.

Crown Plaza Adelaide is a great, no fuss and easy to use hotel. The facilities are great and the rates are much cheaper than comparable hotels in Melbourne or Sydney. Very centrally located. This is something common to all 4 or 5 star hotels, but the wireless internet is too expensive when on a long stay here.

We stayed at the Crowne Plaza adelaide on our wedding night. After checking quite late, we were very pleased with the size and the decor of our room. We stayed in the corner balcony suite and the view at night & day were very nice. The bed also was very comftorble. The only downfall was trying to order from room service, they found it very hard to understand me for some reason and called back to confirm our breakfast order. They seemed to be still confused when the breakfast arrived as they said they were not sure what kind of eggs we wanted so they gave us all. This resulted in a bill for breakfast of $62 which I was not too pleased about. Otherwise a nice, comfortable stay.
