A little tired and in need of updating
Stayed for one night having landed into LAX to travel onwards the next day. The shuttle to the hotel was extremely busy (they are every twenty minutes, so expect them to be busy). On arrival the check in was efficient and we went to our room.
The decor in the communal areas was drab and in need of brightening up. In our room (11th floor) the room was very clean, but also very tired. It needed redecorating, with paper peeling in some areas of the room, not excessively, but enough to notice. The room was fairly dark and the lighting was inadequate.
We used the bar for two drinks (draft Stella and bottle of Corona) which at $21.20 was excessively high. We went to the local Starbucks for breakfast as the Crowne Plaza has a captive audience and I considered the charges were too high.
I am a member of the IHG rewards club, but I wouldn't be persuaded to stay here again as there are other hotels that offer better value for money.
