Well, I don't think I can ever repeat the tremendous value I got using my Priority Club points. This must've been some early-bird exclusive deal on the shoulder of the peak season for Alaska tourists. Nevertheless, I was very pleased to get in with this hotel.
The location is very close to the airport. Probably not more than 5-10 minutes drive. The "Crowne Plaza" monikor is a little misleading though; this seemed to be just a regular Holiday Inn or even a Holiday Inn Express. Nothing fancy about this hotel. But the setup and cleanliness were fine nonetheless.
My kids enjoyed the small pool and hot-tub while I was getting our stuff organized for our trip to the Alaska parks.
Overall, a nice hotel in a nice location. No complaints other than it's not the top-notch hotel a Crowne Plaza represents.More
