“A good hotel with some extras”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

I stayed here for nearly 2 weeks for work. The hotel is situated in a huge development linked to a posh shopping mall; the latter is advantagious because you have several nearby dinner options in a safe environment. The hotel is quite large with loads of public spaces.
The strong points are: fantastic views from the restaurant area and very good (clean and appealing) bar/restaurant areas. The rooms are of a nice size and clean & comfortable enough. The service is adequate.
Value for money is ok, though not special.
Downsides: the place was inundated with schoolchildren on a sport event. It meant noise, waiting and more noise. The hotel did not take adequate steps to 'help' the normal guests which meant I got little sleep for several nights. Better planning would surely have avoided this.

Upon our arrival from SAL airport we were immediately greeted by a bellman and directed to reception. We prepaid for a 1BR Master Suite @ $255 USD/night and joked about wanting to get upgraded to the Presidential and to our surprise we were!!! I am sure it had something to do w/ the fact that we are Priority Club Rewards Platinum members. The only down side was that the Executive Lounge was closed on the weekend but who cares, right, it's the Presidential Suite! As previous reviews mentioned, the rooms are dated w/ somewhat of a musty smell and the A/C not up to par.

The hotel itself looks to be in great condition, very clean, very open w/ a warm feeling. The gym has everything you need to get a good workout. The pool is huge and warm. The restaurant is so so for dinner but great for breakfast w/ pupusas made to order.

The Staff is awesome and totally believes in customer service! I would definitely return to this hotel.

Room Tip: Many benefits for Priority Club Rewards members.

This hotel was for many decades the best place in town: the San Salvador Interkontinental. Today, it is the Crown Plaza of the same group, but the infrastructure has aged. Some new additions have been built, but the rooms show signs of aging. Nevertheless, service is still prime, and the hotel remains a popular place for weddings and other fiestas.

I stayed in this hotel during a business trip to San Salvador. The facilities are fine, the service is "american standards'". There are two different rates for the rooms; you can stay either in the main building or behind the pool. I stayed in the main building and the room suited all my needs; I have heard that the rooms behind the pool aren't so great but they are substantially cheaper.
Breakfast is buffet and is fine.
I was very happy with the staff.

Room Tip: If you are on business or can spent more, stay in the main building

I stayed in this hotel in June 2012, it is a small hotel with good service and courteous staff. Breakfast has variety and many choices, good quality food. The hotel is conveniently conected to a plaza with few restaurants, great choice for dinner. In general, good rooms, no late amenities, service was good and staff is courteous. The best, the coffee shop

Mostly all-Spanish speaking staff, basic to sub-par amenities, zero ambiance, boring breakfast buffet. I was taken aback by how sub-standard this hotel was compared to other medium-tier hotels in the same price range in Costa Rica/Panama etc. This is what I would have expected in 1985 not 2012.
