Booked a Coogee ‘village view’ room from the hotel website; on check-in were given a poolside view room - an upgrade, judging by their price list. Room was located on the first floor, along with the function rooms, gym and outdoor pool. Our room was large and the bathroom also, with two sinks and a large tub. Room also had a decent-sized sitting area and a balcony overlooking the pool terrace area. Not really much view of the pool or beach. In winter no noise apparent from this outdoor area, wonder if it would be the same in summer. The windows are double-glazed and do quite a good job of muffling the outdoor noise. The beach is just a short walk from the hotel. The hotel is undergoing an upgrade process; our room seemed very clean and fresh, so must have been one of the upgraded rooms. It had the usual amenities, including robes and slippers, and pleasant-smelling toiletries. Staff at check-in and check-out were friendly and efficient. There is a cab rank outside, it cost about $AUD 27 to the airport, at a time when traffic was not heavy. Did not use the hotel restaurants as we know Coogee well (though this is the first time to stay at Crowne Plaza) and have our favourites there. We just needed somewhere for an overnight stay on a quick visit and our usual place was booked. Based on our experience this trip, would certainly also consider future stays at Crowne Plaza . For overseas visitors, Coogee is an excellent location if you do not want to stay in the City centre, as you can experience one of Sydney’s iconic beachside suburbs, which are a noteworthy feature of the city. Transport from Coogee to the CBD is easy and relatively quick; there are regular buses. It is also an easy trip from the airport. Coogee Village has numerous restaurants, the beach, and some historic swimming pools built into the rock cliffs. As well, there is the wonderful Coogee to Bondi cliff walk, which is a “must-do” experience in Sydney, even if you don’t stay in Coogee.
