But if you have no car, Crowne Plaza is certainly a better choice for more central location and tramway station.

Yeah. The best you'll typically do with Gold is getting the better room within the class you booked. So a higher floor, a nicer view, and nowhere near a noisy ice machine, but not a suite or something.
