Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stemasters123 Excellent hotel, superb location
We stayed at the Crowne Plaza Kensington for a combined business and pleasure visit to London. Our room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable, the bed was huge, although like most people we didn't spend much time in the room. We ate in the Umami restaurant in the hotel and had the Taste of Thai menu recommended by our waiter and an excellent bottle of wine also recommended by our waiter. The food was delightful and the wine perfectly matched. Breakfast was very nice, a good selection for all tastes and the complimentary smoothy was a nice touch. The location of the Crowne Plaza is superb, just 10 minutes walk from Harrods and a little further to Buckingham Palace. It is definitely our hotel of choice when visiting London.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ScottSW7 Surprisingly good!
Used to the reliable, but "blah" reputation of Crowne Plaza in the USA, I expected a good, but not outstanding, experience. I was pleasantly surprised to find a nicely appointed, quiet room which met my needs quite well. I know the area quite well, as I have a shared flat right around the corner, but locals and visitors alike will agree that Gloucester Rd is a very convenient area, with excellent Tube and Bus connections, and a lot of good things within walking distance.
I have stayed at another hotel in the area most times I've had to vacate the flat for visitors, but the Crowne Plaza proved to be a better choice for a similarly priced room.
Free internet is a nice touch. Ask at other hotels before you book!
