Here for 2 nights. Excellent hotel. Staff service-minded to perfection. Rooms great, facilities also. Breakfast buffet very good too. Location is ideal, in the middle of the city centre. Can't think of any other hotel in China on this level within this hotel category. Absolutely to be recommended.
Usually Crowne Plaza hotels don't rank very high in my opinion of hotels and I have had bad experiences in the past. But this one is a gem! Checking in was a breeze and staff were friendly and helpful. The facilities are not bad too. Room offered me access to the club lounge for breakfast or on level 4 the same. Spread at level 4 was huge. Club level is not bad too. My only source of irritation is the coffee they offered. Don't have black coffee in the hotel. The blend is awful. Thankfully there is a Costa coffee in the building. But in all a great stay. The concierge staff went out of their way to help us book ferry tickets. What more can you ask for. Keep it up CP! You may well end up as my hotel of choice !
Was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. There was alot of options if you prefer a Western Breakfast at the Buffet. The rooms were spacious with 2 Queen Sized Beds and a bath tub. It would have been better if there were more english channels but it's ok because wifi was good and fast. The lounge was conducive for meetings. They offer coffee, water, soda, tea and some bite sized cakes. Our room also came with 1 drink stub at the lounge and we ended up having drinks there as well. There is also Starbucks directly below the hotel. We basically didnt have to leave the hotel after a hard day of meetings and work. Slightly higher than its other competetitors nearby but it was absolutely worth it! Highly recommended if its your first time in Xiamen. CONs: I was advised that Carrefour was 5 minutes away but they didnt say that the bridge would have 100 steps. Good exercise but hard at 12 noon.
Usually staying Intercontinental we chose Crowne Plaza as there is no Intercontinental in Xiamen and it was located near where we needed to be for business and so glad we did. The best part of our stay was club lounge especially Lisa who proved to be one of the most friendliest, helpful and broadminded staff member met throughout our travels in China. Along with the service the club lounge outdid some of the Intercontinental Hotels range of food, quality of food and relaxed atmosphere. Will definitely return to this hotel if back in Xiamen.
The Good Location, City Center Rooms, Very well equipped, clean and comfortable Facilities, Restaurant, Bar, Pool and Gym Others, Attached to a Mall, Plenty of Restaurants The Not So Good Staff should take English lessons, very few can converse in English I would say that the Crown Plaza is perhaps the best hotel in Xiamen
Stayed here for a week. The hotel is modern and immaculate. The rooms are nice and kept clean..However, This is where the good review ends. I booked and was billed for the entire reservation upfront on IHG's website. Upon checking in they refused to acknowledge I paid for this reservation. They ran my credit card for the room and I left the front desk under the assumption I was being double billed.. I really had no other option. I had to contact IHG reservations long distance to clear this matter up.. IHG reservations promised me a return call.. It never happened..Later that night the front desk manager finally figured out the error, Thanks for the grapes and tomatoes.. But a smooth check in would have been more preferred. The pool was also a complete disaster..They scowl, menace and reprimand westerners for everything. They even reprimanded me fir going into the pool without a cap. I have been traveling in China for many years and understand cultural differences. But unless they are able to clearly explain or better yet POST these regulations in clear view how can you be expected to understand any of these rules..Unfortunately I feel this hotel is a poor option for a western visitor.. Which is really a shame
Very nice hotel in the shopping centre area Had a few small problems with check out and getting a taxi Check in is always excellent and one the best in CP hotels Now a Din Tai Fung restaurant very nearby in the 5 th floor shopping areas
I have been several times to Xiamen, but this time looking for a hotel that is in the center with access to all major transportation within short distance the crown plaza is a great place. Also the bars and restaurants in the plaza make it easy to feel at home.
I was a sophomore at XMUT when Crowne Plaza was built in 2008. At that time, it was my dream to spend a night in this grand-looking hotel but this dream was not realized until last week. Considering my stay was redeemed through points, I did not anticipate any benefits even though I am a platinum member as per my previous experience that IHG did not provide any benefits for reward stays. I was surprised when I checked in and I was informed that my room was upgraded to executive floor with complimentary breakfast. Crowne Plaza absolutely went beyond my expectation in terms of how its facilities were cared and maintained given the fact that it is almost a 10-year old property (swimming pool was awesome). It really learned and knew how to make its guests feel home (I particularly enjoyed their choice of scent in the lobby and restroom). The staff were friendly, courteous, and accommodating, especially those who worked in the executive lounge. Overall, it was a memorable two-day stay and I would definitely come back again when I return to XM next time. Good job and way to go XM Crowne Plaza!
Spent 4 nights at this hotel on a business trip. Facilities and rooms are quite nice although furnishing are a little dated. Business lounge was fine. I'll join many others in mentioning that the breakfast buffet's inadequacies. The good news: lots of options. The bad news: most hot food was lukewarm. Many items had been left out too long or were reheated. It is surprising that the hotel has not done a better job in dealing with these complaints given the frequency of mentions.
