Waited almost four hours for room to be ready. Was told it was a “priority” for housekeeping when I arrived. I hate being lied to. Really think it reflects badly on a business.

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback. We value all the feedback provided. I am very sorry to hear that your check-in did not meet your expectations and lacked some service requirements. This will be passed onto the relevant departments to address.

5 out of 5
We liked the fact it was at the City Centre and within walking to many sights. It was a very clean and quiet hotel.

Hilton Quality

It's a Hilton, and it hits American standards for accommodation. We were in Cambridge in the midst of a mini-heatwave, but the lounge and our room were cool and restful. The hotel was quite full, but it was reasonably quiet. Our room didn't have much of a view for the price, but it was clean and well kept, the bathroom larger than in most British hotels. We were comfortable and well located for things we wanted to do.

Cambridge Visit

Dropped child off at Pembroke College. This hotel could not have been closer to that campus. The hotel is well maintained and an easy walk to every form of shopping.

Worth the little extra

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet, close shopping, close sights
Cons: No free Internet
The Crowne Plaza is a wonderful place to stay. We used to live in Cambridge and came back for a three day visit. My husband and I got a room on the fourth floor, looking onto Downing Street. It was surprisingly quiet. We had two double beds that were really comfortable and the room was incredibly clean (like American hotels). The location was perfect! All the sights were within walking distance. We had backpacks so walking from the train station was no big deal but it would have been better to take a cab -- the bus doesn't run that often on the weekends. The hotel was expensive but you got what you paid for -- a clean, comfortable room in the middle of Cambridge. We didn't interact with the staff that much. They were professional but not entirely friendly -- could have been an English thing. Overall, we had a great experience there. When we go to Cambridge again, we will definitely be back at the Crowne Plaza.
