Great place to stay - central location to downtown and many of Seattle's sites. Staff are very friendly and helpful. See John in the restaurant for a great meal.

Comfortable Stay for Our Family of 4
We booked the hotel via Hotwire for a 3 night stay. We had a king size room which was very comfortable for my husband, our 4 and 2 years old and me. The bathroom was clean. The room was spacious enough for the kids to play with their travel toys and had snacks; and room to park our double stroller without feeling cramped. Room had a view of the city. The kids enjoyed seeing tall buildings. Room was next to the elevator but very quiet. Staff was very friendly.
Great central location. We could walk to Pike Place, Harborfront and metro from the hotel easily. We had to pay valet parking which was expected in Seattle.
Comment: We were only given 1 shampoo bottle and 2 bars of soap for our entire 3 nights stay. The soap actually were sufficient; however, we had to call for additional shampoo bottle but it never arrived. I just used the baby shampoo for our kids in the end.
Will probably stay there again due to location and price.
We stayed at the Crowne Plaza going to and returning from Vancouver. We wanted something on the airport shuttle route at a decent price. Upon arrival, we were told that we had been upgraded. Our room was on the 33rd floor with wonderful views of the city!! The sunset was gorgeous! The room was fantastic--comfortable beds with thick duvets, nice bathroom (although a bit small). Because of the upgrade we were able to have a free continental breakfast (with fresh fruit, pumpkin bread, etc) and hors d'oeuvres in the afternoon (pizza, small quiche, fruits, vegetables, dips). We also received coupons for appetizers in the restaurant. These were excellent. When we checked out after the first night, we mentioned how much we enjoyed the room. The lady helping us reserved the same room for our return visit. This isn't the closest hotel to the waterfront or to the Space Needle but the sites are definitely within walking distance. We highly recommend the Crowne Plaza.
Spacious, Clean room, good location
Used Hotwire to book and got this hotel. Did not have a car and walked from here to Space Needle, Pikes Place Market and Safeco field. Good location. Room & bathroom were spacious & clean. Stayed June 3-5, 2004. Was very crowded on the weekend. Had a room next to the elevator, but no noise. We would stay here again.
June 5th stay. Booked 3 rooms in Jan, using my PRORITY CLUB MEMBERSHIP. What a joke !. I confirmed what we (3 couples) wanted 1 day after booking. Check-in was not orginized, had no rooms for us (hotel sold out apparently). finally 1 couple was assigned a room on the 29 th floor. Us & couple 2 sat in the lobby waiting. 2 hours later the night manager tryed assigning rooms. We were stuck with 1 on the 8th fllor and 1 on the 9th. NOT what I requested 6 months prior...I have notified mangement, filled out my opinion survey will see how important we are to them as customers. With scissors and my Prority Club Mebership card beside me, the temptation is there to sever all ties with this Wanna-Be hotel.........NO Recommedation
My husband and I just got back from our extended weekend trip to Seattle, where we stayed at the Crowne Plaza. I would like to let others know that this hotel is just your "run-of-the-mill" hotel. The lobby is extremely small! During our stay they hosted several conferences and we could barely fit through the lobby because of all the people! The hallways are dark and the elevators are slow. The best thing I can say about the Crowne is that they have an excellent staff. We arrived early and they were very accomodating while we waited to check in. If you want to have a hotel "experience" don't choose this Crowne. If you just want a place to lay your head at night, this is the place for you :-)
The hotel is located on the edge of downtown, yet certainly not out of the way. I stayed on a Priority Club floor and found the rooms to be nicely appointed and very comfortable. Most impressive of all though were the two meals I had at the hotel's City View restaurant (breakfast and dinner). They were absolutely fantastic.
A Pleasant Surprise
I must preface this by saying that we might have gotten lucky on our stay. We were returning from a 5-day trip to Vancouver Island, arrived tired and cold into Seattle for a short night's stay before heading to the airport at 6am the next morning. However, after too many hotels with nice-looking lobbies whose rooms look like they're out of grandpa's fishing cabin, this was a pleasant surprise. We were given a near-top floor room with views of the Space Needle (not a huge deal, we've been to Seattle before). The room wasn't huge, but adequate, and all of the "little things" (TV remote, heating unit, shower pressure) worked as they should. There was even the nice little touch of a Sony Dreammachine CD player/alarm clock - which only took 2 minutes to learn how to operate thanks to an instruction card by the bed. Room service was prompt - food was so-so, but as expected for a 3-star. High-speed net access for $9.95 in the room. Lower level non-water facing rooms could get loud as hotel is right off the interstate ramp. Would defintely stay again for either business or leisure.
Nothing special but okay for the price
Moved here after staying at the Sheraton Seattle, which was much nicer.
The Crowne Plaza is somewhat dark and dank, with motelish rooms. It's a hotel that's TRYING to be nice, but just can't get there. Overall, I got a good night's sleep but probably wouldn't return unless the price was great.
Great Place for Business Travelers
I stayed at the Crowne Plaza while attending a convention in Seattle and thought it was a great place to stay for business travel. I arrived early before the posted check-in time and when the staff couldn't get me into a room for a couple of hours, they immediately gave me a free upgrade to a "Club Level" room (I never mentioned an upgrade). The spacious and very clean room had a great view of the bay and the Space Needle. The king-sized bed was extremely comfortable. Room amenities included a CD player and high-speed Internet access. Front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. I like walking, so I didn't mind the fact that the hotel is a few blocks away from the Convention Center and Pike Place Market. It's still a very safe and convenient location.
All right, OK
Just your run-of-the-mill experience. Not bad, not wonderful either. Good for business travel. Had high speed internet. Rooms had that surface-renovated look but tub was cracked and had stains. There was chipped plaster on the ceiling, and the lobby is strictly 80s. Room service food looked very Sysco -- I had to go down the street to the W to find some fresh food. This would be good for a convention attendee, but I wouldn't recommend it to the leisure traveler -- even with the downtown location, it's surprisingly far to walk to restaurants and bars, and the area it's in seems to clear out after 6pm in terms of nightlife (you're surrounded by banks and office buildings). The bed was comfortable. In all, very average.

That might be related to the weather, or just end of trip malaise, or just Seattle itself. As much as I am ready to move on, I am really not looking forward to the long flight home.
