Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Normally love this hotel. But so disappointed with the service. Given wrong room, double not twin. There was blood on a towel. There were boxer shorts under the bed. No pool bar service, even though this service was advertised. Room service frustratingly had busy tone all of the time. There seems to be a lack of staff.There was also a terrible constant smell of sewage. I sent an email about the issues and haven't even had a reply.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Great hotel, but it is basically an airport hotel, built for business meetings and the like. Very close to the airport, but very far from everything else.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Need to improve the food quality & response time
Actually it was very bad experience its not the stander of crown plaza group as the room service was provided the food without any quality of the materials, the hotel should improve that to follow the Crown plaza standers. And the management they have to manage calls for because if u need any thing u have to contact the reception and they are busy with new arrives guest so u have to wait till u they response your calls.

3/5 Okay

Travelled with family, Business traveller
Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The food brought to the room was not fresh until we complained. You need to keep complaining to receive good food quality. The hospitality personals are not qualified enough to take care of the customers. For example, the toilet paper rolls ordered to the room were sent as open rolls, indicating that they were prevously used.
