We usually stay at Intercontinental Rialto but couldn't get a room with our vouchers so decided to stay at Crowne Plaza.The hotel is in a great spot but the entrance leaves a lot to be desired. I must say the hotel doesn't have a lot to work with.
We received a lovely greeting. Being platinum members we were given an upgrade but I think it was only to a higher floor and not a bigger room.
There was also no free wi fi for platinum members. Strange as we get it at ICH Rialto
We were however given a nice bottle of wine.
That said the room was pleasant with great view of the river, the bathroom small and tired, pillows flat and bed only OK.
The TV reception was atrocious and very difficult to watch the football.I would have expected better.
The staff were nice and the breakfast very good.
For the price OK but I am afraid it is the Intercontinental for us. We are at home there , the staff in the club lounge know us and always welcome us with open arms.
This hotel just didn't do it for me.
