First let me say how great the sleep I had here was, thanks to the extremely comfortable bed and pillows - definitely head and shoulders above other properties nearby the airport area.
Otherwise this is an older and fairly average Crowne Plaza, nothing really outstanding or terrible either. The hotel has been through an obvious renovation, the bathroom in my room was nice and modernized and so were the furnishings and decor generally speaking. There were two things I found not to be that great here in the room I stayed at on the 5th floor (top, club), however.
Despite the fairly recent painting, there were a several stains on the walls, as if things had been spilled or splashed, as well as two areas that appeared to have spackle on them for no apparent reason (this stood out on the green paint on the wall). These things seemed like they would be simple to clean up, so I don't know why they weren't as it really detracted from the appearance of an otherwise modernized room. Also some old water stains on the ceiling.
The room tended to be very cold - this was winter during a very brutal cold snap - because the old window and sliding patio door just don't have the insulation or newness needed to keep up and cold air liberally seeps through. I had to keep the heater and fan on constantly, and i am usually not a cold person. Hopefully the hotel will consider renovating or replacing this in future.
Stayed on the club floor and the continental breakfast and "lounge" (a former hotel room it seemed) were nice. The lady who ran it was nice.
