Crowne Plaza Qingdao

Reviewed March 14, 2010

I originally checked into the Copthorne and checked out right away - For 200 R&B more the Crowne Plaza is the place to go. Comfortable Beds, Free Internet, Free Breakfast, Great Service, The indoor pool is clean and nice. The rooms were very comfortable. All in all well worth the money. Great Location (the Shangri La is comparable but not such as centrally located) Excellent Choice of restaurants in the hotel. (Beware of the "Famous Seafood Restaurant" with the huge buffet a couple of walking blocks away from the hotel - I got BAD food poisoning from the clams and had to go to the Emergency room and trust me you do not want to go to the emergency room in China - next time I will eat at the hotel) This is the ONLY hotel I will stay at when I go there in the future.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights during the beer festival. The hotel is very good in location. Supermarkets, department stores and a local book store all are within walking distance. Also Yuan Xiao Road is close to the hotel, where we found a lot of seafood restaurants offering reasonable-priced fresh shellfish and seafood.

The staffs were quite helpful; front-desk was efficient. The hotel was very full during our stay; so it took us some time to get our table for breakfast in the morning. Food at Café Asia was ok. There are some other restaurants in the hotel, but we only got the time to try the Chinese restaurant Etsong Palace. The food was real good, especially its signature abalones.

Our standard room & bathroom were clean, but in need of refurbishment. One more thing to be improved is its lighting. The room was a bit gloomy as there were not enough lights.

I stayed at the Crowne Plaza for one week, and spent the most of the day time in one of the hotel's conference rooms. It was well organized, with a good replenishment of food and beverages throughout the entire day. I ate lunch at the hotel a couple of times, and there was always a lot to choose from. Plenty of Western style dishes, and some good Asian cooking as well.
The hotel is situated next to a big supermarket (Jusco - look for the purple sign), and if you're after some real rubbish food you also have McDonalds and Starbucks nearby.
As far as shopping went, I did not find anything good nearby. However, the Crowne Plaza is within walking distance of a big nice park situated right next to the water, from where you can see the Tsingtao beer's logo monument out in the water.

A great location to get the feel of Qingdao. Staff are excellent in getting what you require although they struggle a bit with English. Thats not so bad as my Chines is non existent so they are in front.
Rooms are good but the Chinese love hard mattresses.
Restraunt service and variety is great. Plenty to choose from and the girls in the business centre are as helpful as the people on the front desk (5 star)
Easy to get around the shooping precint and easy to find your way back to

stayed in the junior suite for $130 a night via the 7 day advance booking. The room was dated but large. The ordinary rooms are quite small. The location is great. 2 malls nearby (Jusco and MyLa) to buy any last minute needs. Breakfast is ok, the hotel was so full when i stayed that i had to wait 10min just to get a seat. (not good if you're in a hurry for a meeting).
The breakfast food is nothing to write about. Otherwise everything is ok.
