Arrived at hotel late with my colleague on late flight from London (10.30pm) and was told my colleauges room was not ready, AT 10.30PM THATS CRAZY.
Got in rooms eventually and hotel was clean as was room, so no real complaints but nothing special either. Breakfast was included and was fine. Had to get rooms cleaned as cleaner forgot my room twice, in a 5 day stay. On check out huge problems which i wont go into, but have written to the hotel to demand explanation.

The Crowne Plaza Hotel Abu Dhabi is a solid 4-star property in a good location with a beautiful, warm rooftop pool and bar!

Staff was friendly, helpful and accommodating. Room service was prompt and a great value! (TIP: The coffee is divine!)

The room was clean with a very comfortable bed and oversized windows - unfortunately these didn't open. The floors in the room are hardwood instead of carpeting, which helps to keep out dust, smoke and other smells from previous guests.

The area where the hotel is located is safe and relatively quiet, with the exception of prayer times at the nearby mosque.

I think this hotel is well suited for business travellers.

I have stayed 3 days in the hotel late november. The hotel in in town cenetr so you can have access to most known food outlets, brand shops, and banks. The hotel rooms are more than reasonable, clean, tidy, spacious yet for UAE little outdated. Generally speaking though its above generally recognized average. The buffet was diversified yet it was not tasty and mor eexpanesive if booked with the room than if room serviced with each day at your request. One little incident annoyed me, i have asked them to hand over the key to my dad who will be passing by the hotel for 2 hours and i will not be around. When he arrived everyone pretended they did not understand his request let alone that i existed. Well, later on, my dad spent the night with me and they did not seem to really bother at all.

PS. Everyone you meet in the UAE expects to be tipped and its kind of new to them

As other reviewers say a step down from what you normally expect from a 4 or 5* hotel in the UAE. However it is clean, the staff are efficient and nothing is that bad. However nothing is that good. I would stay again on business, like this trip, but not advise it for a holiday destination.
