Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by fbonfis Outstanding experience at CP Padova
I come back again at Crowne Plaza in Padova for a business trip, and I experienced again an outstanding experience.
Nice and clean place, nice and clean rooms, nice people (both at the front desk and at the restaurant-Stefano), big free parking, and private (charged extra) for those who need it (great to have the choice between free and pay), easy to reach from the motorway.
I definitively RECOMMEND AGAIN this hotel, and of course I will COME BACK.
My compliments to the General Manager, please continue this way.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by giuliano26874 Great Service although with a few one-off blips
I visit this CP regularly and find it exceptional under many aspects. This time however there have been a few blips:
- I have not been recognised as a Gold Elite customer
- The welcome drink (part of my booking package) has not been mentioned and I had to ask for it afterwards, which was slightly embarassing
- I requested a paid upgrade through the option at time of booking. When I checked in I was not told that there were no rooms, so again I had to go back and ask about the upgrade. The staff told me they knew nothing about my paid upgrade request even though I showed the request confirmation from my inbox. I should have at least bben told at check in that there was no availability.
This said, the staff has been otherwise attentive and caring as usual, with a special mention to the AQuattro waiting staff. They are always very nice with us and with our two little children, at dinner and even more at breakfast. Rooms and the hotel overall are welcoming and clean. It may help to have a staff member to man the bar, a few times we had to go and search for someone if we wanted a drink from the bar.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by P_Will Nice, But Could Have Been Nicer
This particular Crowne is quite hard to find unless you have a very up to date GPS. We punched in the address on our GPS and it did not register. Only after going to the area did we find out that Via Po is actually a road divided in to with a large gap in between.
This is the first IHG hotel that I have been to where I was not recognized in any way (not even the token welcome drink) for my Gold Ambassador status. Further, the hotel tried to charge for parking even though the deal that I booked included parking. It was sorted easily enough, but after having such consistently good service from IHG this experience really stood out.
The room was quite nice, but the amenities had not been fully stocked and there was a little... *something* in the toilet when we first arrived. These missing little touches make you a bit nervous about the care given to the room, but that was all that we noticed.
We ate at the hotel restaurant and can honestly say it is the worst food that we had during our stay in Italy and possibly the worst Italian food we've ever had. The pasta was strangely biter and crumbly. The bread was stale.
The hotel could be really good with a bit better attention to detail. Hopefully management can make some corrections and your stay there will be great!
If you go, skip the hotel restaurant and go down the road to Antica Trattoria Bertolini - fantastic Italian food.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by theowler Comfortable and Relaxing Break
This hotel is a taxi drive from Padova station, but once there, is a large, friendly hotel, and although catering mainly for the buisness traveller throught the week, is a good place to base yourself for a weekend break, as we did
On arrival, we were greeted as if we were old friends (and Priority Card Members) and upgraded to a junior suite, which pleased my wife, as it was her birthday weekend. The room was excellent, the menu's and food in the restaurant were excellent, so what more is there to say?
We will visit again, but when? I suspect when my wallet recovers after the shopping in Venice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LisaMark Hotel to recommend
We stayed shortly, but were very satisfied with comfortable rooms. It is a bit outside Padova centre, so the car is recommended.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by pleakes Great for visit to Venice, Verona
Family room was actually two complete adjoining rooms, one with king bed and one with 2 double beds. Rooms were clean and well appointed. Complimentary shuttle to the train station made excursions to Venice and Verona very easy. Staff spoke pretty good English, much better than my Italian.
Choose the room rate with breakfast. Breakfast was very good, even by European standards, and the coffe was just awesome.
