I stayed at this hotel while on route to trek Kokoda in April 2015. It's a little outdated but very clean and had all the facilities needed for a comfortable stay. The hotel has a fantastic pool and the restaurants served delicious food.

I very rarely write anything negative about any location or experience I've had in my travels. But this hotel is really overrated, and it's a bit sad because the staff try so hard to make it a good experience. The venue is really tired and in much need of a makeover to fulfill its potential. The windows bang and leak...

Two boom business opportunities in Port Moresby would appear to be security fencing, and security guard services. The Crowne Plaza has plenty of both, which make you feel safe while there. It's a very expensive city, and this hotel also is far from cheap. Everything works well enough (with the exception of the wireless Internet service, which while complimentary was...

The hotel is tired, furnishings are all ageing and the internet is not very fast at all, when I finally got it working. Rooms are a good size, with a comfortable bed and good shower.

The Crowne Plaza is turning out to be a grand old ladyy, though in fairness, there are attempts to improve the quality of the rooms and overall service. Room size is good; the cafe is still serving good food. But wifi service is poor, even if free for IHG members. Just a place to crash really..

With limited choices in POM, everything being over-priced, and movement after 6 restricted, you don't have many options to pick from. Upsides are the fruit at the breakfast buffet, stubby holders being provided with the beers, and the shower was good. Location is it's main drawcard for anyone with an office in the middle of town.
