Bottom line: above average Crowne Plaza. Good location. $30 valet only parking, few alternatives, $30 is pretty much the going rate.
I used PC points to get a room at the downtown Crowne Plaza. They put us on the top floor, which is controlled access and is really only suites. Our room wasn't a suite, but it connected to one, to make the suite expandable. They also gave us access to the PC lounge on the 32nd floor, where they have a free breakfast and social hour on weekday afternoons.
Overall, I thought it was an above average Crowne Plaza. The room was good sized, but nothing special. Complimentary bottle of water, and turndown service were highlights that I didn't expect. They also gave us a coupon for the restaurant.
The location is within easy walking distance to the convention center, Pike Place and the waterfront. Its also right off I 5, and is fairly easy to drive to. I would definitely stay there again, but the parking is a killer.
