Following a 3 day stay, we found the hotel an extreamly poor experience.
The service was almost non-existant and we had to change rooms because of the noise.
Never again.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Crowne Plaza Hotel

Clean, comfortable, convenient

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed two nights at the Crowne Plaza in downtown Seattle. It's a more-than-adequate hotel, not fancy but very clean and comfortable.

Rooms: We stayed in a King bed room that had a lovely view of Interstate 5. (OK, you could also see First Hill, Beacon Hill, and areas south.) The room itself was average size but well organized, with a king bed, work desk, and lounging chair. Decor was a cut above the standard tackiness of middling hotels. Bathroom was a good size, not fancy but very clean. The room itself was spotless.

Location: Great location in downtown Seattle, close to shopping, restaurants, Capital Hill, the waterfront, and freeway access.

Amenities: We didn't go to the restaurant, so I can't really comment on it. The gift shop had a few basic (and expensive) necessities. The exercise room is tiny - fine if you're going to get on the treadmill or stationary bike. There are a few basic universal-gym type machines as well, but not suitable for a real workout.

Service: Service was prompt and attentive. Valet parking was very quick. $25/night parking in Seattle is a bit tough to swallow. OK, it's not $40 like it is in San Francisco, but still pretty steep.

If you want a clean comfortable room in a good location, this should meet your needs. If you're looking for 1st-class service, luxury, or lots of amenities, you will probably be disappointed. For what we paid (a reduced rate through hotwire), it was a bargain. At the rack rate, it would be adequate.

mediocre, for the price... at best.

First of all, the room we had booked was in the "executive/club floors" rooms above floor 30. I hadn't been informed of the floor when I booked but I did notice the lack of a small refidgerator when we arrived at our room. I was told that there would be one so I had bought some perishable fruit that would need refidgeration.

Our next clue was when the toilet overflowed on the first flush. We called to have it taken care of, the attendant plunging and plunging for 5 minutes straight, then telling me..."it works now, but it flushes very slow"

On the next foray to the toilet, as you can guess, it didn't flust at all. Immediately I requested another room and was given one on the 31st floor*.

*executive/club floors 31 and up

My new room had a small fridge with the promised contents.

The toilet in the new room still had problems flushing.

My wife took a bath and when she finished it took the tub a full 15 minutes to drain... Hmmmm.

Horrible food at the menu price of $29 per person (although we had a "coupon" that the staff of the regata grille never seemed to have seen before that entitled us to this buffet for free) for a seafood buffet on friday night. The saturday morning breakfast buffet made me sick. Undercooked sausage and bacon...cold eggs (again a "coupon" which came with our room package)

This package deal amounted to $278 for a one night stay.

Without the food coupons, the one night stay was to be $159

I would never stay in this wanna-be hotel again but if I did I would never get the "food deal"

The room was nowhere NEAR worth $159

The view was magnificent.

The staff were very nice and accomodating.

Needless to say this was a big disappointment. For that kind of money.

Not a good trip, watch hidden fees

from LAdodger1
We stayed on the 33rd floor and we were next to the elevator so everytime we were about to fall asleep, we would hear a hydraulic sound. it was very anoying. Another problem was the damn hidden fees, they charged us $25 a night for tax and another $25 a night for parking our rent a car. We went there for Monday night Football. Did not have a good stay, but the Cowboys won.....great football game.

lazy management

from A TripAdvisor Member
My family stayed here in November 2004 for two nights. We were kept up past 2 AM by loud and obnoxious partiers in the next room. We complained to the front desk the following day. The second night, the pounding, yelling and fighting intensified. It even moved into the hall by our door. We called the "manager" and he said he couldn't kick anybody out unless more than one party complained! We felt unsafe and unheard by the "management." This was not an environment we were comfortable bringing our children into.

Do not stay here.

from Dianica
I have had the worse experience with this hotel than any other I've stayed at. Firstly, they charged my bill for parking and internet charges that I never made. Secondly, during my 3 week stay there, they started major renovations on the floor above us without ever having the courtesy of giving us a heads up, so to speak. I am with the national tour of a show, our schedule involves late nights so I tend to sleep in later, but jackhammering at 8:30 in the morning on a Sunday was inexcusable. To add insult to injury, the day before I was to check out, they started the renovations in on my floor! By the time I was leaving the hotel, I was stepping over plywood and furniture and torn down peices of wall paper to get out. THIS IS NOT AN EXAGGERATION. The hotel manager was completely unappologetic and rude, and I got a bill from them a month later charging me for some dinners they accidentaly billed to another bill. This is after they already charged me wrongly for the parking and highspeed. The management there is a complete and utter pathetic mess. I couldn't bring myself to follow up because I just wanted to forget the whole thing. Don't stay here, it 's not worth it.

great location !

from JKD
Good location for walking all over Seattle; especially convenient for games at Qwest or Safeco parks. Room was spacious and modern; we even had a view of the Space Needle among all of the tall buildings ! Rooms next to the elevator have been soundproofed. Crowne Plaza's new marketing campaign called "Sleep Advantage" was working - drapery clip was nice and the beds really were comfortable ...

Crowne Plaza-a good experience

from cat50
We stayed at the Crowne Plaza on 8/22/04 and 8/29/04 and had a very pleasant experience. We arrived a few hours early and our room was ready so we got ourselves settled and went out to explore the city.
Our room was very clean and the heavenly beds and little "extras" they put into the Priority Club suites made our night very restful. We were impressed that the Priority Club members had our own breakfast buffet in a lounge on our floors.
We found the staff to be pleasant and helpful and would definitely go back.

Very good hotel for what we paid

from Mike463502
My fiance and I recently stayed for four nights at this hotel and we were quite impressed. We got a great price from Hotwire so we were quite lucky with that. The hotel was really nice and it was very clean. We walked in the hotel and we were checked in and in our room within 5 minutes. We had no problems and we were treated very well by the staff. The location is also good because it's pretty much in the middle of everything whether you're there for shopping, sightseeing, or buisness. If you can get a good price for the hotel we highly recommend it. We will gladly stay here again if we get the chance.

Satisfactory Stay

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed at this hotel on a night prior to an Alaskan cruise. We won this hotel on Hotwire for approx. $120. We arrived a little early, but we were given a room immediately (a corner room with two windows rather than the standard one window). The staff was very friendly. The room was comfortable in size and clean. The bed slept heavenly, and the restaurant was very good. Also, the location was good--close to shopping, the Market, and fairly close to the Space Needle. The decoration of the room was modern rather than the traditional decoration of many luxury hotels. While this hotel is what I would consider to be a good hotel, I would only give it a 3.5 or 4 stars out of 5.

Crowne Plaza Seattle

from A TripAdvisor Member
The Crowne Plaza is a business hotel in downtown Seattle. It is also good for leasure, because of its nice location. Good things are that it is clean and has a pretty good loacation. you can walk anywhere in the city easily. waterfront, safeco field, union lake, capital hill, and the seattle center are all easy to walk to. if you are looking for a hotel in the absolute heart of the action, i recommend the Sheraton. However, the Crowne is only a few blocks away. Watch out for the elevators though, they are extremely slow, so allow 5 minutes more time waiting for one of the four elevators. it has 34 floors, but only 15 rooms on each floor. I definately recommend this hotel.

Top Local Tips for Seattle

Dress Down, Bring Rain Gear People in Seattle dress DOWN. No one could believe I was in white. They all wear jeans even to fancy restaurants. It's because of all the rain. Bring a slicker and umbrella though many locals don't bother with umbrellas b/c the rain is mostly misty. This is not a tourist-y as you'd think. People are genuine and don't try to rip you off here even in the tourist areas. One of the most pleasant surprises as far as cities go that I can remember.

The Triple Door Get your tickets for half price the day of the show down at the info booth outside of Pike Market.

Driving up to the hotel The address of the hotel is 6th street, but the parking/entrance is on the other side so you have to make a quick left off of 6th......otherwise you easily pass it up (like I did) and have to come all the way back around, which might take a while depending on traffic!
