Rated 4,0 out of 5,0 Xmas dinner and bed
The Crowne Plaza is a very bright and comfortable stay. We were attending an arranged xmas dinner with friends and we were very pleased with our room. However, we were disappointed by the bar service which was attentive but very slow even when in the afternoon there was virtually no one in the bar, as our drinks took forvever to be served.
The xmas dinner was okay although disappointed by the portion size and the DJ's playlist was very much dictated by those groups with the biggest influence e.g. a much larger set of Asian diners who, as much as we like Bhangra music etc, was a bit too over powerful all night, especially, as this was a Xmas party?!?! I am afraid the other guests with us agreed this too. However a great hotel just little niggly things that spoiled the fun.

I stay weekly in the Crown Plaza and the staff consistently make it a home away from home. Location, food and facilities are all good but the staff make your stay worthwhile.

Rated 4,0 out of 5,0 by M33onTour Enjoyable stay
Great location for access to various venues. Hotel provided us with a good base and we had an enjoyable stay. Pool, sauna and steam room were all clean and of a high standard.

Use this hotel regularly but it's a little frustrating when week after week I am told they have run out of takeaway cups when I want to have breakfast on the run

Staff at this hotel are wonderful, obviously well trained and a real asset to the brand.
I had the best night's sleep here I have ever had away from home. Bed was soooo comfy.

Rated 4,0 out of 5,0 by jskny Excellent Hotel but In Room Safe didn't work
A lovely hotel in a quiet but easily accessible location with excellent friendly staff.
Breakfast was delicious & included vegetarian sausages. We followed the advice of a previous reviewer & booked a Queen Bed River View room - well worth the extra few pounds.
The ONLY problem we had was that the in room safe would not lock. We were offered a change of room (if available) or the use of a safe box in reception. As we were only there for two nights & in a bit of a rush to get back to the city on the night of arrival we opted to use the safe box rather than change room.
There was a slight wait to access the safe box on the first evening because staff were very busy. They were very apologetic & really couldn't have done more to help.
Planning to return in the Spring & hope to have time to use the Quad Club & Spa.

Rated 2,0 out of 5,0 by chels88 nice hotel, not worth the price..
once we arived at the hotel there was no one to greet us at reception, eventually someone came and told us where to go (didnt show us) we found our room to find it had been nicely cleaned, in the bathroom we had no towels so phoned reception and asked for some.. twice, we asked for 2 towels to eventually recieve 6. In the room the carpet was ripped, 1 of the curtains had stains down them the shelving units in the bathroom were chipped.. So we paid the extra and had breakfast there the next morning.. we arived in the dining hall to not be greated again, when someone came and showed us to a table they were very pleasnt and we were able to have a hot drink straight away, the food was dry from where it had been stood, bread stail and at 1st no chef to be found to prepare and egg?? once he was dealing with us, the egg also consisted of shell, but was happy to replace this once we adressed our isue with them.. That morning before checkout we thaught wed check out the spa, to wich we discoverd that it was a mother and todler swimming group in the pool wich happens everyday from 9am untill around midday, the gym members were not happy with this and saying what a pain it can be at times as they wish to use the facilities provided. cutting our time in the spa short in the womens changing rooms wich were heaving! there was dirty nappys in every shower, wipes and sweet wrappers. (i hope this was just a bad day) but not quite what i expected to see in a spa, its put me off kids of my own! upon checkout it apeared we had disturbed the receptionist from a convosation on her mobile.. when she called us over checkout and paying for parking was very straight forward.. Beautiful hotel, just apears to be under staffed?? i hope they were having a bad few days while we was there, not quite what i expected for the money!!

Rated 4,0 out of 5,0 by elabel Modern hotel, no atmosphere
Lovely modern hotel with comfy stylish rooms, great view overlooking Thames and O2 arena and Emirates cable cars.
Asked reception staff for information regarding getting to London Eye via river boat , which is a very popular method of travel, the young man i asked did not have a clue, and the concergie assistant passed him a map to give to me. The food is very poor and overpriced , no selection on menu and restaurant is dull with no ambieance . The hotel bar is modern , spacious and an excellent place to chill out , with nice background music. This hotel suited my needs as it was a stone throw from Excel . If you are going to the O2 or Excel then this hotel is as good as it gets in this area. But apart from that the surrounding area is in a bleak middle of nowhere location.
