Crowne Plaza Seattle Downtown

What is your IHG Rewards Club status?
Platinum Ambassador

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 Standard Two beds room, Received Club Level Two beds room with nice view of the city at the 31st floor.

How are the rooms?
Really rice! They are very clean and the bathroom was very modern

How is the exec. lounge?
Very bad, small, mediocre to bad food, small selection and too crowded. C'mon... a 35 floor building with an exe lounge of 10 seats? And with only ham and some cheese?

What was good and what was bad?
Good:.
The staff was great, they recognized my platinum status, the rooms were very clean and the mattress and pillows really soft.
modern lobby and rooms, great concierge service. Welcome spa kit.
Bad:
Exe. Lounge was really bad.

Value for $ or IHG Rewards Club Points? Would you return?
This was an expensive stay. ($240 per night) but I went in high season and it was the lowest price comparing to other hotels nearby. I would return for sure

Crowne Plaza Copenhagen Plaza

What is your IHG Rewards 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 standard room using points, received a corner room (told it was an upgrade at check-in) and Exec lounge as welcome amenity (it was either that or 500 points).

How are the rooms?
- Nice and clean
- Wood floor, tub + shower
- Not much of a view

How is the exec. lounge?
- Nice selection of drinks at night
- Good breakfast spread (did not eat there but took a peek), close to the restaurant

What was good and what was bad?
Good:
- Rooms were clean and simple
- Close to metro station (had to walk around the back of the hotel)
- Free shuttle to the airport

Bad:
- My king room had twin blankets instead of a king-sized one
- Not exactly bad, just some confusion about breakfast. When I checked in, the associate told me I can have breakfast at the lounge or in the restaurant, and either are included. He even said he recommends the restaurant because the selection would be better). I made sure it was included and had breakfast at the restaurant, but got billed for it when I checked out. Took 2 minutes of arguing to get them to take it off the room.

Value for $ or IHG Rewards Club Points? Would you return?
- Booked with 25000 points—I believe $190 was the cash price.
