This hotel may have been 4-star 20 years ago, but it certainly does not meet that standard now. The hotel is very old and outdated. My room had stains all over the carpet, and the bathroom left a lot to be desired. The room windows are not very thick allowing noise to easily pass through from outside. My room had a door that attached to the adjoining room - this was fine for the first night as there was nobody staying in that room; however, the second night I heard the other room guests straight through that door. The quietest noise would pass through very easily. The only English-speaking staff in the entire place were the front-desk staff.
Across the street is a small shopping mall with a food court and movie theater. There's absolutely nothing special about it. There are ATM machines located outside of the mall, and hotel security will provide an escort over there and back. The hotel has its own branded taxis outside and just about everywhere I went was C$100. None of the drivers speak English. There is a free airport shuttle that was running every 30 minutes.
Overall, I would not recommend the Crowne Plaza and would pay extra to stay at the Intercontinental or Hilton instead (which are in a better location anyway).
