We stayed 7 nights during our golf vacation at the crowne plaza in festival city. The hotel is clean and in very good condition with nice amenities. Guests can also use the intercontinental next door. The location next to the festival city mall is a great plus if you want a quick/cheap meal. 10-15 min cab ride downtown costing about 25-35 dirhams one way. The golf course is no more than 7 minute shuttle ride (included in our package, the take you there in a nice new Lexus). We had some food at the Belgian beer cafe. Food was good and the beers excellent. Service can be a bit slow though. The breakfast is a nice spread with fresh fruit and everything else you would like to have, so definitely worth having it as part of your booking. The service there is a bit variable. We prdered some coffees which never arrived. Lots of staff but they seem quite inefficient (except when the manager in a suit was around). We upgraded our room to an upper floor for 180 dirhams extra a night, which I am not sure was worth it. We had booked a superior room already which I am not sure would have been any different. I know people have been upgraded for free. We enjoyed the stay. The intercontinental next door is a notch above, however, but probably not worth the extra 150 a night. One complaint we had was that we were booked into a "joined" room with a door to another room and felt the noise insulation was extremely poor. We could hear the phone ringing in that room, and the tv. Also, the housekeeping staff started to vacuum outside our door (very loud) at 8:30 on a Saturday. Not nice to wake up to.
