I just returned from a one night stay in the Crowne Plaza in Beirut. I travelled with two colleagues, we all had single rooms. My room (806) was really OK, with everything you need after an exhausting meeting. My colleagues were also satisfied with their rooms. My room was very clean, as was the bathroom. The 24 hour internet access from my room was a bit expensive for 22 USD, but that could not be helped. The area (Hamra street) is OK and looks safe, the walk to Beirut Downtown (restaurants, more shops) and on to the entertainment area Gemayze is a bit long. A taxi sets you back anything between 10 or 20 USD, depending on the taxi driver...
So, all in all I would recommend the hotel.More
