"Need a bit more to be Luxury ..."
The hotel was much closer to Hongqiao airport than Pudong, in the French Concession district. It was a nice location, with a lot of good restaurants and interesting shops around. In general the hotel was aging. The facilities and amenities were not considered luxury but were clean in general. The shower was nice though -- good water pressure. The breakfast was really so-so. There were a range of choices, but none of the choices was very well done. The dumplings and stick rice were very tough, for example, and the egg station staff had an attitude issue. The coffee machines worked sometimes but went crazy at other times (probably too many people lining up for them). All in all, it was an OK stay.
"Excellant in all things"
We spent 3 nights here. Great location near many restaurants movies and subway. Morning breakfast was amazing. The largest buffet I have seen at a hotel. Great choices for both western and eastern tastes. Rooms large. Bathroom a good size plus Excellant Amenities. Comfortable slippers. Comfortable beds. Such a lovely hotel.

"Definitely not a luxury hotel"
If you like staying at luxury hotel, the Crowne Plaza is not your choice. I stayed at a "Luxury Suite" and would at least have expected ample closet space (I stayed for 6 days) What I didn't like: Mediocre bed Closet space for 1 or 2 nights ok, definitely not for 5 days (you can hang 4 shirts and a suit, that's about it), and definitely below what I expect for a luxury suite. Reminded me more of a closet in a cheap motel (you know, mirrors on the outside) Noisy airconditioning Mini bar only has 2 beers and a few sodas Asked for a room far away from elevators -- got one right next to it. Hotel bar closes at midnight. I arrived around 11pm on a Friday and it was DEAD Outdated furniture Positive: Friendly staff
"Wonderful home away from home!"
China is such a different country in so many ways. We enjoyed very much the history, the traditions, the food. But it was so nice to be in a western hotel, the beds, the mattress,the pillows, the bath room... the Crown Plaza is the same all over the world, we love it!
