Perhaps I'm cynical, but I don't expect too much from a 4-star city centre hotel; too often they have unmotivated staff and second-rate rooms. But I was very pleased that I chose the Crowne Plaza in one of the world's nicest cities.
Its location is excellent, in the city centre, yet in one corner of a large green square, away from traffic noise. The public lawns and gardens outside feel as though they belong to the hotel, and almost next door is a typical, large Aussie pub-restaurant.
The hotel lobby is fairly characterless, but our room was large and cool with a nice view over the square. The restaurant is good, if expensive (and Australia is so expensive these days for we poor Europeans), and the wine prices were astronomical. The restaurant serves a buffet breakfast, again not cheap, but of very acceptable quality. There are plenty of places within two or three minutes' walk for a cheaper breakfast.
On my next visit to Adelaide, I'll certainly choose the Crowne Plaza again, especially if they offer the rate I paid this time.
