I have stayed in this hotel several times - 2 weeks in 2009 & 2 nights in 2011. The hotel has just finished major renovations & is now vastly improved.

LOCATION: On the main thoroughfare in the heart of the city. 2 minutes to parks, 5 minutes to the beach.

ACCOMODATION: Nice rooms, standard finishes. No special views.

RESTAURANTS: The Chao Gao is a nop notch 'asian fushion' bar/restaurant on the ground floor. The Peking duck is the best in Abu Dhabi. Happy hours 4pm - 7pm.
Hemmingways is a bar in the basement. Shows lots of sports. Happy hours 12 - 7pm (AED18 pint).

TIP: Children are allowed into all bars

The weekend breakfast finishes at 11:00 - great for late sleep in at the weekend. This is excellent and should not be missed.

Many restaurants in the hotel + good pubs and nightspots ----ladies leave your wallet at homes for some nights.....

Central location in the city of Abu Dhabi - buses and taxis plentiful and immediately outside the doors.

I have stayed at Crowne PLaza in Hamdan St several times on business. Since the last stay the reception has been remodelled and it is much improved. Rooms and beds are clean and comfortable. Breakfast is good as is the service.Cho Goan is a nice restaurant and I had a good value and tasty lunch there with the daily special. The Italian is also good, through I did not eat there on this trip.
Only downside is that Heroes is still a smoking bar, so unpleasant if you are used to smoke free atmospheres like in Oman and UK of course.

I stayed for around 10 weeks over the summer 2011 and found the hotel very comfortable and convenient for central Abu Dhabi. Overall the staff are amazing and very helpful.

Watch that you don't get a room on a lower floor as rooms at the front can get noise from Hamdan St and rooms at the back get the early morning wail of the nearby mosque. Corner rooms are best unless you want a connecting door to the neighbouring room - useful for families i suppose but otherwise it can be noisy.

The rooms are a little old fashioned but comfortable, clean and fairly spacious. The mini bar is useful if you stock up on supplies from the supermarket opposite and the room service isn't bad although the choice is fairly limited.

The gym is on the top floor and isn't massive but is perfectly fine. The pool is on the roof and fine for a hotel aimed at business travellers. It isn't a pool you'd want to sit around for a long holiday. If that's what you're looking for then there are far better choices in AD e.g. Hilton, Sheraton, InterCon, Beach Rotana...

Never ate in the main restaurant as its an all you can eat buffet which doesn't appeal to me. Cho Gao on the ground floor is reliable offering a range of Asian dishes. Not bad value but service can be very slow. The Italian restaurant on the 1st floor is also reliably good but again service is very slow.

Heroes sports bar in the basement has a happy hour til 8 and free wine for ladies most nights I think. Its very popular with expats working nearby. There's a quiz one night early in the week and bands from about 9pm most days. Vincents bar, through the 9th floor main restaurant, is much more refined than Heroes. The prices in both bars seem the same. Make sure you join the Priority Club loyalty scheme before staying as you'll get a voucher for a free drink when you check-in.

If you're driving then the valet parking is very useful as its a difficult area to find parking. If you don't have a car then its possible to walk, in winter, to most places in central AD or there are always cheap taxis available outside the hotel.
