The Crown is a decent hotel.
It is expensive ( but all hotels have comparable rates in Bhubaneshwar)
We stayed at the hotel for a day ( transit accomodation) so did not use the restaurant or the swimming pool as we were mostly out shopping in the city.
Crown is a bit away from the city's market places so best to stay if you have your transport facility/ cab. My experience of traveling in Orissa is to hire a cab service prior to landing there or else you are bound to overspend on short distance travel. Cabs from hotels are a rip off.
Crown could do well with some revamping and exposure/ training to staff. The front desk needs to be more efficient in billing etc.
One more aspect was the 'extra charge' on room service ( nothing was mentioned on the info booklet in the room). This charge is over and above the taxes. Advisable to check on this.More
