This Crowne Plaza is a nice hotel. It's in an old Hilton building so certain parts are a bit dated. That said, the rooms were clean and spacious. Wifi was free, so that's nice, but breakfast wasn't included.
The location is a bit far from the old town of Jerusalem, but a complimentary shuttle is provided upon request and it is about a 20 to 25 minute commute by light rail (including the walk). We chose to take the light rail every time and it worked out well and allowed us to operate independently. Being farther out, it is nice that the hotel has all necessary amenities on site such as a couple options for dining...at hotel prices of course. On the plus side, it's very close to the Israel Museum and the city's Central Bus Station (just a 5 minute walk). It worked perfectly for us when we caught our bus down to the Dead Sea.
All in all, this is a good option if the price is right compared to other options closer to the old city, but don't be afraid to look around.
