First of all, you seriously cannot get any better for location than the Crowne Plaza. It is just off the main streets and shops of Queenstown. Super convenient!
The hotel itself is a bit dated, with the carpets especially being rather run down but everything is clean and the staff was pleasant and helpful enough.
But it was SO frustrating that in this day and age that a hotel can't even provide wireless internet inclusive of the room fee. Drives me bonkers. You only get 45 minutes of complimentary wifi and all of it has to be used in one go. So if you check something online in the morning, that's it. You've used your 45 minutes for the day. And then it's another $30 PER DAY to get access. Are you kidding me? We stayed in 5 other hotels during our time in New Zealand, and every. single. hotel. had complimentary wifi access except the Crowne Plaza, which also happened to be the most expensive hotel we stayed at the entire trip. It's just downright silly. Obviously we weren't in Queenstown to use wifi all the time, but the internet is the best way to make bookings sometimes, check in to flights, make international phone calls, check the weather forecast, and a plethora of other things that makes wireless access important. It was my fault that I didn't diligently check to make sure it was available here before booking, but still, at this point I expect it to be a standard thing at any decent hotel.
