“IHG Quality as usual”
Reviewed June 12, 2011

I am a business traveler and the Crowne Plaza at the Corniche has been my top choice in Jeddah for the last half a dozen trips. It gets even better now with the lobby upgrade this year.

Free speedy internet access; spacious and modern rooms, large work desk; incredible upgrades if you are a Priority club member; nice lounge; nice swimming pool.

Other than the above, the restaurant serves excellent buffet during seafood night (Mon and Weds). The gift shop sells very nice ornamental rings (I bought 3 so far).

I would definitely recommend this hotel if you are prepared to pay a little more for quality, peace and comfort.

Room Tip: through the IHG website for booking

I was regular guest of this hotel since last 12 years. During my last visit due to delay in flight I reached hotel at 2AM in the morning. They cancelled my booking and informed that no rooms are available. The staff available at 2AM was not at all helpful and asked me to find another hotel. You can imagine at 2 AM where could I go. No taxi was available and they very not keen to help also. This they have done after going to the hotel 3-4 times a year and for 12 years. LOYALTY doesn't have value with this hotel. I send a complain later but till dat I haven't heard anything from their side.

I took a stay in this hotel for 2 nights last month and i found it very good. Alhough i thought this Hotel is on the higher side when it comes to price but the quality is splendid. The food is perhaps the best you will experience in the region, the dinner at Zahra Restaurant is priced at around USD 45. Rooms are clean, customer service is top class and welcome experience is surprising !

The Kunafa (Arabic Sweet) that is served in this Hotel almost in every buffet meal is the best i have tasted in the Middle East.

The important thing about this Hotel which suits me is that its very quite especially its floors, its reception and the restaurants and such an ambience gives me a lot of comfort. Perhaps the reason to it could be that its location is bit away from shopping areas and secondly many would consider this as an overpriced hotel. But if you want to relax and stay away from shopping zones then this is a very good option.

Room Tip: Ask for a corniche view room

Stayed in tis hotel during abusiness trip again, have ben here a couple of time. The extension is now finsihed, so no more contstruction noise. Defenitely one of the hotel to be recommended in jeddah for a business trip. Please note, that this hotel is NOT near the beach. Restaurants and a mall are within walking distance. The health club is actually under renovation.

The only thing unexpected was that this evenening the restaurant offered a fish/seafodd dinner buffet only. For other dishes ("small dishes" as they said) I had to go to the lobby cafeteria. There the tables were not very practical for eating but what they served was it worth! Although I was very, very hungry I wasn't able to eat all (and it was delicous)!
Again it has to be mentioned that the prices for internet access are much too high (in more or less all luxury hotels)! As more stars as higher the price!
One point less for the location, the surrounding area looks a bit poor (probably this is usual for this country).

I stayed in this hotel several times for it's convenient location for my business and it being cheaper than the next door's Intercontinental.
Rooms are OK but there is always works somewhere -even on Fridays at 07:00 !!
Club floor is useless: breakfast buffet always the same, fried eggs extra. The "free snacks" is 5 little salmon or cheese toasts every day the same as well as perpetual boiling tasteless apetizers
The claimed Japanese restaurant does not exist (in renovation since 2+ years)
The other reaturant offers always the same buffet with staff coming regularely to stirr in the boiling food containers to extract the last aroma's and moisture that could be in the food just to make sure it is terrible.
Have to admit that the fish buffet twice a week is OK, yet still always the same. I love sushi but they really kill them.
Airco works great !! Hotel keeps it very cold so you can wear a sweater (or get pneumonia)
Music is a treat... you get whining elevator music all over the place (but I think they have 2 CD's at least so you may be lucky and hear another song)
TV works fine, you can connect your own iPod or even laptop (channels 51 and 52).
Intener is free and works quite well, IP reset is at random and sessions may just be interupted so if you work on-line make sure to not, or make regular savings
Worthwhile noting is a nearby supermarket and very friendly laundry shop (one sixth of the price of the hotel)
So if you have to be South of Jeddah and don't want to spend too much in the Interconti or Hyatt this is an adequate hotel.

My wife and I stayed at the Crowne Plaza for 2-nights at the end of July. The hotel staff, especially Ashraf Al-Nami, were absolutely great. I was in town for eye surgery and everyone at the hotel went out of their way to accomodate us. We were treated as if we were at our "home away from home". This was also our third stay at the Crowne Plaza in the last 4-years and it did not disappoint. The rooms are very comfortable, the restaurants and cafe are great and the hotel is in a good location. Thanks to everyone at the Crowne Plaza. Barbie & Tim from Dhahran.
