The Crowne Plaza Porto is located on the Avenida da Boavista, in the heart of the city’s new business district.
"Crowne Plaza level as expected"
This is a perfect business or leisure hotel for a visit to Porto. Quality is up to Crowne standards, maybe not their newest property but still quite high. Rooms are decorated traditionally and may need some visual updates but do not disappoint. Not a romantic option though, there are smaller and nicer places downtown, but very convenient for many other purposes. Breakfast selection very wide and assorted.
"Excellent stay at an excellent hotel"
This hotel in Porto was selected for us by the Globus tour people we booked with. It was a beautiful hotel about 2 miles from the heart of town. We had our tour bus, so I'm not sure about how public/private transportation worked. The lobby and hotel facilities were all outstanding. The breakfast was excellent. Our tour guide told us that the hotel had been upgraded since she had been there last. The rooms were comfy, clean, and spacious. We had 3 people, so we had an extra cot as well. There is a restaurant inside the hotel which had some good menu choices, a supermarket across the street, and some other restaurants within walking distance. It was a Crowne Plaza experience and I highly recommend it!
"STUNNING AND FAULTLESS"
What a beautiful hotel. Very very nice indeed. Beautiful, clean decor. Lovely spacious rooms, with huge bed and pillows. Can not fault this hotel. I have done some travelling and this is up there with the best. Great location, very friendly staff. A great place to stay, and I can't wait to return. Great job guys :):):)
"3 things you need to know"
This is a solid choice for a quiet and clean hotel. Here are three points to consider. 1) This place is full of class and elegance. The entire team knows what they are doing and it extends to the appointments in the room. Clean, quiet and comfortable. 2) On each pillow just before bed where items to help you sleep. If you chose, The lavender and other scents were truly a special touch - great job Crowne! 3) The Spa - First class. Many selections and personal touches. Again, Crowne did a great job from top to bottom on this hotel. Go, Relax and Enjoy - this hotel knows what it's doing!
"Absolutely wonderful hotel and amazing staff"
We stayed at this Crowne Plaza twice during our holiday in Portugal. It is about 2 miles from the centre of Porto in a very pleasant area with plenty of restaurants and shops. There is a taxi rank just outside and taxis cost only about 5 Euros to any of the downtown sites. We walked once and it was a pleasant experience but did take about 45 minutes. The hotel has a large bright lobby and the reception desk was always well staffed and very efficient. The staff were always cheerful, efficient and charming. Nothing seemed too much for them. We were given a delicious glass of port on each check-in and were upgraded to a junior suite which was a great bonus. The room was wonderful - huge and with every conceivable facility including a large safe, big TV with numerous channels in English, extremely comfortable bed with luxurious linens and pillows, spacious bathroom with array of excellent toiletries and numerous extras. The curtains were blackout. The wifi was free and was extremely fast. We slept very well. We absolutely loved this hotel and it is one of the best we have ever been in anywhere in the world. If only others could provide such well trained, charming and highly motivated staff it would transform peoples' experience of staying at their hotels. We very much hope we can return.
