I have written a review on this and other Crowne Plaza hotels previously. What has changed is that I am now a Platinum Elite member and I enjoy my stays even more.
Platinum Elite gives me access to
the lounge (sodas, juice, bottled water, granola bars, fruit) 24 hours a day, which is especially handy with very early departures and very late arrivals. During set hours there are also eggs and toast, or soup and salad. In the evening there is alcohol.
I have also received complimentary breakfast vouchers and complimentary internet. These things save me money and add value as I do not need to expense them from my per diem. [Less]
