Crowne Plaza Sohar is in a nice part of the fast developing Sohar town. Lots of highway construction close to the hotel and it is easy to get lost trying to find the hotel. The hotel itself has a nice quaint look, which I imagine is representative of Omani architecture. The patio and lobby are welcoming and the lobby is tastefully done without much bling.
The hotel staff was helpful and courteous. Bar staff was very friendly. Restaurant was great except we were not told about the grill available during the buffet. So we ate just vegetables. Waitstaff was great otherwise.
I think the hotel needs to do some up keep on maintainence. The towel rack was falling down in our room and the tile was a little old and loose.
It was a very beautiful setting and the grounds were nice. Will certainly go back.
