Not the best atmosphere, cocktails were very average for the price we paid and the food on the bar menu was apparently from room service which again was very un impressive. Not at all what you would expect from crown.

Fantastic view from this 28th floor bar. Great staff and nice cocktails. Not cheap but well worth it with this amazing view.

You can pay about $65 per person but the best thing to do is look for hotel specials. Then you can usually get the room, the lounge, valet parking and late checkout for about $320. Awesome value
