The Crowne Plaza in Montpellier is in a pretty good location. It's near the pedestrian area (about 7 -> 10 minutes up the hill) and near to the Event Centre. Tram is about 3->5 mins away, and it's
down the hill.
The rooms are good for your standard IHG hotel, beds are great and the AirCond is great. No walk in shower, but it's France after all and the bathroom is fairly big.
Pool is great - good size for kids and adults, but better for kids. It's one level mostly, with a nice big play area for little ones. There is a bar/food place next to the pool, but the food was a bit limited, given it's in France.
Front desk was very good, with easy English all though the hotel.
Very clean all the way though, and the AirCond was great during a heat wave. [Less]
