The Crowne Plaza Grand Rapids Airport is typical of what you expect from this brand. This one had a larger size lobby with a quick, friendly check in, though I was not given the room I requested (far from the elevator ‘cause you all talk too much in the hallway). The rooms are average size and style (popcorn cement ceilings, dark and dated furniture). The room was clean, with a large flat-screen TV, and comfortable beds with lots of pillows. The internet was fast and free; you will need the password found in the key envelope. The bathroom was also average size, with just one sink, but came with lots of bars of soap and three bottle amenities (shampoo, conditioner, hand lotion).
There is a free shuttle to the airport that leaves early and frequently and is one of the benefits of the hotel.
The Crowne Plaze is supposed to be at the top of the IHG chain (well, Intercontinental really is), and I often come away with the feeling that they just change the name on a Holiday Inn and charge more, but do not provide any additional service. On this trip, I also stayed at a Holiday Inn Express (same IGH chain), which was 50% cheaper, had nicer and bigger rooms, and came with a free breakfast…the bed did not have as many pillows, but everything else was better.
For an overnight hotel near the airport, this is perfectly acceptable place if you get a good rate.
