Overall a pleasant experience. Crowne Plaza was not my first choice, but I got a very decent sized room with a big, spacious bathroom. Room is well equipped, internet access is painless but slow. Service is excellent. The Hotel is located well if you have business in Eastwood or UP Ayala but is in "tourism wasteland". The only things to see are malls and the Hotel itself is in a shopping mall (which has its benefits). Crowne shares some resources (Bar, Pool, Gym) with the Holiday Inn on the other side of the Mall. So you have to walk quite some distances through the "bowls" of the Hotel to get there. I stayed there for a month so you get used to it.
Staff is extremely friendly.
Some negatives though....
Tours from the Hotel booked via the concierge - concierge is not very knowledgeable on what is on offer and gives confusing information
Concierge does not have basic tourist information like maps etc
Very little help in getting standard Taxi's as the hotel has a "limo" service with AVIS (very expensive compared to Taxi).
Although the Limo service is very effective when going to and be collected from the office.....
Overall a good business hotel - but not good for the Manila tourist.
