More like 3 1/2 stars but not 4. Arriving at the hotel I had a problem with the taxi driver. There is a guy with an earpiece who calls for help. There is no one to greet you or help with luggage. I had to wait until someone with the from desk arrived. Since there are quite a few stairs to walk up the hotel should always have someone on hand to help with luggage. Not an earpiece guy to call and wait for someone. After checking in I asked for the concierge. They seemed confused. I said I was interested in a river tour. They handed me a brochure in Chinese. Enough said about that. The area was not what I expected, The river walk is mostly boring Chinese restaurants with no menus with photos. It seemed half of the store fronts were boarded up. The nearby restaurants that had menus with photos were 2 star at best. All low end places. The hotel restaurant's ala carte menu was also pretty boring. If you want to go out to eat for dinner you could be stuck in traffic for a long time. So better not to go back to the hotel. Now I know why this hotel was such a good deal. Location sucked. Luckily with daytime traffic a decent place to visit is only about 20 minutes away. Lunch at Paradise walk only cost 23 RMB in the low cost taxis. The nearest MTR is about an 8 minute drive. The room is the best part about the hotel. Decent size, comfortable bed and pillows. Clean. International channels on TV. Nice bathroom. Employees were always cheerful and friendly. When checking out at 5:30 AM there are plenty of taxis. Terminal 3 was only 25 minutes and 50 RMB. Next time though I'll try the Intercontinental and it's better location and service.
My second visit but last. I was assigned a smoking room, changed it but eventually room was again smoking. I left it there. Shower was flooding, breakfast very average and basic for the level. Hotel feels run down. This is nowhere near quite a few other Crowne Plaza hotels I visited.
I stayed for 3 nights for a business trip in April 2017. Flawless is all I can say. Reception; speed of check-in and -out; rooms very large, clean, well-maintained, well-designed; breakfast options and food quality; the staff; everything perfect! Location is good but far from the airport (~60-80mins by taxi). Most remarkably: As an IHG Platinum member, I even enjoyed benefits at this hotel that would otherwise be given only to IHG Spire members. Thank you so much! Crowne Plaza Chongqing Riverside is better than all Crowne Plazas I've stayed at in Beijing and Shanghai. Btw, for your convenience (although I didn't make use of it) there is a large hot spring wellness/recreation facility right next to the hotel.
My friend and I stayed here in October and found it very comfortable. Very nice bathroom, spacious rooms. Location suited us fine. There are some good bars and restaurants on the riverside where the views at night are quite spectacular. The hot spring resort which adjoins the hotel was a surprisingly pleasant experience. I'd happily stay there again.
Once again, the Crowne Plaza Chongqing upped its game! A fantastic place to stay, excellent service and very fine restaurant. Room was wonderful, staff attentive and pleasant and location excellent for my business needs. My place to go and stay in Chongqing. I will be back again.
The room was large clean bathroom exellent they even have a pillow menu,the pillows on the bed were very comfy as was the bed.Breakfast was good ,better with the help of Vivian who helped with breakfast,she gave us some photo,s of Chongqing that she had taken her self.Very proud of her city.The hotel next door had hot springs what a great way to spend a relaxing few hours.Highly Recommend this hotel.We stayed at three other hotels in China this was by far the best it was also the cheapest.
We had a very comfortable 3 night stay here. The room was great, with lots of space. The breakfast and dinner buffets were outstanding: range of food, display and taste. The room, bar and restaurant were well air-conditioned but the corridors and some of the public spaces were somewhat uncomfortable. The location was convenient for the river and quiet. Attractions were easily accessible by reasonably priced taxis.
I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. Real five star hotel. Free wifi, nice western breakfast and clean area. I really suggest this to who travels to Chongqing. The hotel is on top of the hill near to river but there is not any view to river. The garden behind the hotel is very nice and what is more there is no sounds of cars and horns. Keep calm at there and enjoy your time.
The hotel is connected with a hotspring next door which are owned by the same company, hotel guest can get 20% off with the room card. The hotel room itself is a bit outdated, but still acceptable. The hotel is surrounded by residential building and not far away from the main road which is full of restuarant.
This is a nice hotel but they need to be able to turn on the air conditioning when it starts to get hot outside. We were here in March and the temps reached the upper 80's F and they wouldn't /couldn't turn it on because of "rules" the lobby air was on but the rooms didn't and it was hot. Other than that the accomdations are nice and the restaurants are ok.
