          in the city

          the initial price of 330 + 18 + breakfast was way over the top which we did not realise until we saw the room. After discussing this with the night staff; in formed by staff that we could not get a refund for the first night but they offered the room for 260 + gst with parking and breakfast which we accepted and then stayed on condition that we had the same deal for the other 2 nights (mainly because we could not be bothered to go to a better standard motel with better facilities for the same money)

          The location is good and people friendly.

          Would liked to have free internet access in the room rather than having to work in the lobby.

          Hotel was pleasantly quiet,we had a 1st floor room over looking a corner of the park next door,it was beautiful ! The room was spotless and all products and essentials were provided. The bed was superb (we have had trouble at other accom with terrible saggy beds),I'm thrilled to say that the Crown Plaza Canberra has awesome beds !! The staff were very friendly as were the lovely house maids that cleaned our room, a very,very nice stay we will be back!

          Having to pay for parking....just cuts into your budget when your on one !!

        • Older travelers
          8.2

          The location was very good and was close to most of the places I needed to research at including the Australian War Memorial. It was close to breakfast bars and some excellent restaurants. The place was clean and well appointed - the room was very well set up with an excellent work station behind the bed. Views through the picture window were good. Staff were very efficient and generally friendly and helpful.

          I must confess I am not a fan of atrium style hotels and the hotel restaurant located in the cavernous space of the atruim looked spare and uninviting. I have had a lot of experience in staying in hotel accommodation in Asia and Europe so am sensitive to standards. While were were generally pleased with the room it had the air of an old Travelodge that had been recently renovated - somewhat cheaply. This was most evident in the bathroom which was particularly bad for a place that promotes itself as one of Canberra's premier hotels. An enamel bath with a plastic drawn curtain that served as a shower place was not what I would have expected. The shower rose was also falling off the wall. Although very clean the bathroom was not to the standard I would have expected for the cost of the room. However other bathrooms in the hotel may be in better shape.

          The location is perfect, close, walking distance from shops and Convention Center. I have stayed in the double room with a friend. The room is very comfortable and clean. Plenty of towels, large screen TV, nice outside view. The buffe breakfast was really nice, a huge variety of hot and cold food. Overall it is a really nice hotel, with service and staff to match.

        • Group of friends
          10.0

          Chosen for its proximity to the convention centre but also luxury hotel reputation. Did not disappoint and the staff were absolutely amazing, we were treated like royalty - nothing was too much trouble. Would definately stay there again and recommend to others.

          The receptionist who checked us in was fantastic and very helpful as was the concierge desk

          7.4

          I liked the fact that it was close to the convention centre. The staff were very friendly most of the time.

          I didnt like the fact that I paid over $900 for 3 nights, where as others paid under $600 for 3 nights and had 3 in the room where as it was just me and my daughter. When i mentioned this to the girl on check out, she asked when i had booked and I told her in Feb, she replied with the fact that i had booked in a low peak time.

          It was well located to access the Exhibition Centre.

        • Older travelers
          6.6

          Room was comfortable. Bed was nice.

          Lift renovations. Having to pay $18 for overnight parking. Having to pay for wi-fi access. Desk staff with absolutely rotten breath that just about knocked me off my feet at 2 metres away! Overall expensive for what it was.

        • Group of friends
          8.2

          Neat clean and tidy rooms. Price.

          As we pulled up the concierge watched us take our suitcases out of our car and did not offer to take them to our room.
