This was my first trip to Port Moresby. I have to say, it's a pretty rough town, and I think that although the Crowne Plaza is what I would rate as an average hotel, it is probably one of the best / most convient in town.
The reception, bars and restaurants were ok, albeit VERY expensive. However the room I had was pretty average. The room had a musty / smokey smell, and you couldn't open the door to the balcony to let in fresh air.
The pool area was also very average.
I haven't stayed at the airways hotel, but I had lunch there on the last day. Even this it is another 10-15 mins out of town, I will be staying there next time. You can't really leave your hotel anyway, so I figure I may as well stay somewhere nice!
