Crowne Plaza Promenade, Den Haag, Netherlands

Crowne Plaza Promenade, Den Haag, Netherlands

Which room did you book and which upgrade did you receive?

King bed Club Room. No recognition of IHG member (Plat Amb). Receptionist had no idea what I was talking about. Got the room I booked. When I asked what the room was all she could answer was the room number.

How are the rooms?

Good sized room, well appointed.

How is the exec. lounge?
there isn't one that I was made aware of

What was good and what was bad?
The room is good but the standard of staff here is very disappointing. Receptionist had no idea about IHG. Barman more interested in doing his 'chores' than serving people in the bar. Asked for the bill after being ignored for 10 minutes with an empty glass and his response was to leave the bar for 10 minutes. Very remote location, nothing within easy walking distance other that the Tram.

Value for $ or Priority Club Points

Not worth it. Much better hotels in better locations with actual Service and staff that understand what Service is.

Crowne Plaza Lima - Peru

What is your IHG Rewards Club status?

Platinum Elite

Were you (or for multi-stayers are you generally) happy with the hotel/stay?
We stayed for 2 separate 1-night reservations within a 5 day period. On the first night, yes. On the second night, no.

Which room did you book and which upgrade did you receive?
Booked a Chase IHG free night award for both nights. Received an executive room upgrade on both reservations. I was not offered a suite upgrade.


How are the rooms?

The first room we received was clearly upgraded, and enjoyable. Clean, and satisfied.
The next room we received was clearly not upgraded. It was noticeably older, and less than desirable.
Also, I have no clue how the previous poster could call the rooms quiet. Must be used to living in Manhattan or something. The property is adjacent to Av Alfredo Benavides which is a major thoroughfare. Cars constantly (6am-11pm) honking. The windows are not well secured, meaning noise comes in easily. I would describe the noise as tolerable city noise, but if you need absolute peace, Lima may not be the city for you (or Miraflores specifically).

How is the exec. lounge?
N/A

What was good

Location in Miraflores is fantastic.
WiFi was speedy.
A late check out (3pm) was offered, but grudgingly after asking twice.

What was bad?

No breakfast at all for Platinum. The other poster must have been more handsome than I, because I got nothing.
When we asked for how to take the bus to Pisco, we were looked upon as if we were crazy. The bus ride was 90% cheaper than the options the concierge offered, and completely safe.

Value for $ or Priority Club Points? Would you return?
It was a nice Chase redemption. I would probably explore other properties in Lima in the future.

Well, I am just a Parisian who hates (street) noise, but is lucky to have an appartment with bedrooms facing a lovely and quiet garden
I had a room on high floor with (partial) see view (read: absolutely no noise)

Handsome, I don't know. But Royal Ambassador, certainly.
I was told, if I remember well: as there is no club lounge, you will get free breakfast (including on points)

Didn't see that but there are some other 'interesting' practices similar to that.

Crowne Plaza - Seattle Airport

- What is your Priority Club status?
Platinum

- Were you (or for multi-stayers are you generally) happy with the hotel/stay?
Yes

- Which room did you book and which upgrade did you receive?
Booked King Executive, received the same

- How are the rooms?
Quite large and modern - the bathroom has a sliding door facing the bed, which was unusual. A good selection of amenities was provided.

- How is the exec. lounge?
There isn't one.

- What was good and what was bad?
The room ticked all the boxes and there was nothing wrong with it. Parking ($19) was comped. There was nothing bad, either, although I'll be interested to see whether the welcome points post (at my usual HI, they give a voucher instead).

- Value for $ or Priority Club Points? Would you return?
The room rate was $199 plus tax, which is on the high end but not excessive. I would probably stay at the HIX instead if I returned - I'm going there next week and they've already upgraded the booking!
