This is a fantastic location first of all. Access to the underground and rail. Just near the Blackfriars bridge, where you can simply walk across to access the Tate Modern and other delights. The staff is exceptional as well as the two on site restaurants. I hope they keep the facility in good condition! I will stay here again on my next trip to London

Very convenient location being right in front of Blackfriars station. The chinese restaurant on the ground floor was great as well. Very clean and modern. Air conditioner was a little weak during the night but other functional. Enjoyed our stay. I would recommend to others and would stay here again.

Hotel representation, by Travelocity, was misleadi

Hotel under construction. Loud and workmen makes checking in difficult. Staff ok but had to complain about room left unclean. Primary problem: Travelocity advertised the hotel with a pool. We booked this hotel for this one reason. Hotel staff indicated that this location of Crown Plaza has never had a pool. Very disappointing. Will not make this mistake again.

Close to attractions, but

The building from the outside is unimpressive, but the lobby is inviting. The room looked a bit worn down but provided adequate sleeping condition. The hotel was nice enough to provide free sparkling and still water. However, the hallways leading to the room was in very poor condition for obvious lack of upgrade; the carpet needs replacing, the walls could use new paint. Yet, this place is close to attractions and opposite to the subway. These two facts are what I am using to recommend this hotel. I also want to mention that the staff was helpful.

Crowne Plaza - London

Pros: The best feature was the Handy phone that was provided which allowed us to have a mobile phone with data and GPS included in the room charge.
Cons: Unfortunately, there were multiple times, we had to call for additional towels with 4 people in the room and 3 towels being left on a regular basis.
Location: Highly recommend the pub across the street in the Black Friar building.
The bright spots were the proximity to the Underground and National Rail at the Black Friar station. Very convenient, mostly 5 minutes via tube into the heart of the tourist areas: Leicester Square, Oxford and Regent streets, PIcadilly & Trafalgar Square, Westminster and Southwark. The best feature was the Handy phone that was provided which allowed us to have a mobile phone with data and GPS included in the room charge.
