Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hopeless the best sort of airport hotel, with some reservations
This is an excellent hotel for scientific meetings, the reason for me staying at here this year, as in other years. It is the fourth year running for me, to attend an annual meeting. The conference rooms are well appointed, poster space and buffet lunch space good (food somewhat less so), the rooms with views over the lake are memorable and very special. Unfortunately this year, for the first time I've stayed, the wonderful lake view to be enjoyed over breakfast on the level-1 dining room was blocked by an ugly 'igloo' structure, making me reluctant to bother coming down for breakfast. One other thing for me jarred badly, and that was the piped music relayed to the lifts and the corridors - mindless, bland and quite unnecessary. As a gold card priority guest, I enjoyed my room on the lake side of the fifth floor, although I couldn't get the espresso coffee machine to work, and the coffee sachets were not replenished each day. Nor were the face cloths in the bathroom - two were provided originally, and they were removed each day as I used them during my three day stay, leaving me without one on the last day. However, the room was wonderfully quiet, the bed very comfortable, and I slept well.

The hotel provides service appropriate for Crowne Plaza. The only disappointing moment is paid WiFi. Paid interntet is know as one of the biggest pet peeves for hotel guests. It is better to increase the accommodation rate but not make guests pay for WiFi.
