The only annoyance with this hotel is that the restaurant is short-staffed. But then I found out why - instead of paying waiters the min wage of $15/hr, Crowne Plaza downtown Seattle only pays waiters $9/hr and then tax on 18% service charge automatically to the customer's bill. The system resultd in the worker paying more in government taxes. So many have quit (and I don't blame them).
Other than the slow restaurant service, and I have no problem with the hotel. It's in a great location. The rooms are a little on the small size, but clean and updated. All the workers that I encountered throughout my stay were very friendly and spoke if they passed me in the hall. Charlotte in concierge was very nice and helpful and getting me a ride to the airport. All meals I had at the restaurant were delish! Try the exotic salads as well as the Macaroni with Lobster and the Fish & Chips.
The meeting room was spacious and not freezing - YESSSS!More
