WOW, friendly and well maintained, this is a true 5 star experience for the traveller or holiday maker. Situated in the heart of Abu Dhabi and a short distance from... well everything really. The food is superb and staff are outstanding, we have wanted for nothing during our stay. Heroes bar downstairs has the feel and atmosphere of a good old pub with a bar menu that is varied and plenty of it to boot, portions are huge and well priced for a city hotel. The roof top pool is something to behold, with a Jacuzzi and steam room and large pool with plenty of sun loungers well spread out. There is a covered relaxation area that you can chill in if the sun gets to much as well as two bars of an evening. The main restaurant is superb, serving food from all over the world and the breakfast menu is just awesome. There is a salon and massage facilities as well as conference rooms, free wifi throughout the hotel so you can surf the net in the café lounge or anywhere. Apart from the main restaurant there are 2 establishments attached the hotel, Spaccanapoli and Cho Gao which offer great food at a decent price, look out for promo deals like 2 for 1 before 7pm etc. All in all a fantastic hotel with first class facilities and outstanding customer service, well done Mr Ivor.

This hotel is a true 5 star hotel. When i visited there was a resident harpist playing in the lounge which was a nice touch. The room was immaculate and spacious with great views. Service is impeccable, nothing is too much for these guys. The food is fantastic too with a great international selection. My only scruple is that the swimming pool is perhaps a bit too small for this size of the hotel but it was never over-crowded when we were there anyway so not a problem.

Dear pinkpanda409,

Thank you very much for your kind words and for sharing it on TripAdvisor.
We are very happy to know that you have enjoyed the music, heart-felt service and the food.
We would love to make our pool bigger and perhaps that would be something to consider in the future.
If you were a musician yourself please do play our piano in the Cappuccino’s lounge on the 1st floor next time you stay with us. We would love to hear it.

Just as you expect, CP claim to be superb and this hotel is. No point in writing down all the good things and there’s nothing bad or poor to be aware of. The airport is half an hour. Heroes bar full of sports TV. Sun-deck good. Excellent breakfast.

I stayed here for one week on a business trip and thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. This place is very neat, very well maintained and it is in the heart of the city. They have a very good bar with live karaoke every night.

This has easy access to every place within the city limits.

Stayed here for 1 month and have to say it was a great spot. Service was excellent and everyone was really attentive.

It also has 2 great restaurants called cho gao and spaccanopoli which are must tries. We live in Abu Dhabi now and we regularly attend these restaurants.

Level lounge on the roof is also a great venue in this hotel and we would regurlalry have a few drinks and shisha here.

Breakfast buffet was good, not the best but good nonetheless. The waitresses were really nice in there and always had a smile on their face

I would highly recommend staying here

This is the best and most amazing hotel I have ever been to.
I have stayed there twice with my big family and felt at home. My kids are in love with this hotel and its amazing helpful and friendly staff. They insisted on me to go there on the second occasion. Whats-more, they say that if they have to go to Abu Dhabi just to stay in the hotel, it would be worthwhile!

I spent 4 days last year and two days this year with amazing offers.
I reserved two spacious rooms with sofa beds to fit a family of 7 (5 kids, 3 of them under 7 yrs).
The Breakfast Open Buffet is the best I have ever seen and I have been to so many luxury hotels in many cities (Hilton, Sheraton, Intercontinental...), but during my entire life, I have not seen anything close to this marvelous second home.

Last year, one of the breakfast staff dedicated sometime to help my wife with our kids. She even helped feeding the kids and choosing food for them. Never seen this before!

On the second visit, they were as helpful and there was a great offer for lunch there, so we practically ate on both days at the Crowne Plaza. Lunch for six only cost me around 70 US$!
When we checked-in, they invited me and my wife for drinks in their mezzanine lounge.
These offers come with IHG membership.
But they would easily make a membership at your arrival for you to benefit from the great offers. As I said, amazing staff!

Rooms are very clean, bathrooms as well, all spacious with plenty of accessories.
Great AC and nice large panoramic windows to look out from at Abu Dhabi.

Car parking is free and hotel staff take your car and park it for you and then bring it back whenever you need it. I did this repeatedly and had no complains or bad faces. Amazing well educated and trained staff...!

It has many elevators, you rarely have to wait in queue unless you are looking for the glass lift like my kids insist on riding.

I would highly recommend this great hotel and would certainly not think twice before going back and reserving in it again.

Thank you so much Crowne Plaza Abu Dhabi staff and management for such an amazing experience unmatched anywhere else on the planet (at least for me).

Room Tip: You can easily have 2 adults and 2 small kids in one room in this hotel. No one will complain and br...
