Nice hotel closed to city

Pros: Very good breakfast and fantastic gym facilities
Cons: On site parking for $20 a night could be cheaper and free internet
It was just a overnight stay. And I was really impressed by the breakfast and facilities. The bed was very comfortable and bathroom was clean. But the free amenities ( like shampoo and conditioner) weren't attractive, like sitting there for long time. And also they charge for internet access and $20 for on site parking weren't impressed. But overall I am happy to stay there again.

Great Hotel close to city, NMA and Sunday Markets

We went to Canberra to see an exhibition at the National Museum of Australia and wanted something close by. The Crown Plaza was a short drive to the NDA and the Sunday Markets with an added bonus of being a walkable distance to the city with its array of great restaurants. The room was large, clean and well appointed. I would certainly book again

Good hotel,centrally located wth good dinning options nearby. Good for both family and business travel. Downsides were that there were not enough car spaces available given the size of the hotel, we went back to the hotel just before 5pm on Saturday after visiting the Art Gallery, was lucky to get the last parking space available - several other hotel guests missed out. Also the Lift took a long time to circulate between floors on the Sunday morning.

Great Location

by from Melbourne
Posted Jan 12, 2017
Pros: Convenient to main roads for ease of access to tourist sites
Cons: Cooling in hot weather. Happy Hour limited to 'house' drinks a surprise as Happy Hour usually means all drinks.
Location: Location easy to access. Within easy walking distance of supermarkets and restaurants/eateries, shops and banking if required. Nice park nearby.
Enjoyed our stay. Pleasant, helpful staff. Great gym and a variety of food and drink venues. Rooms adequate but internet payment was unacceptable. Parking very convenient but expensive at $20 a day. Taking these as givens it is a great spot and we would stay again.

Crowne Plaza Canberra - Fantastic Experience

5 out of 5
Posted Jan 11, 2017
Pros: Everything - location, facilities, food, on-site parking and staff
Cons: If you book at the last minute like me you will regret not getting a better price - learning for next time
Location: All of the National Attractions of Canberra - The Casino is part of the hotel. The Mountain Biking at Sparrow Hill and Mount Stromlo is superb
I took my son to Canberra to go mountain biking for 2 days. Admittedly we booked at the last minute and wanted to stay somewhere comfortable and centrally located. We also wanted somewhere with great food so once we returned after a long day we could freshen up and not have to leave the hotel. The hotel has a nice pool and gymnasium, which my son enjoyed. The dinner was superb (Seafood Platter for 2) and the service from the staff excellent. The biggest surprise was the breakfast - the choices included my favourite Eggs Benedict! Espresso Coffee is also part of the experience which many hotels charge extra for. All up - very nice hotel and a great experience - will definitely stay here again and recommend.
