I've stayed at the Crown Plaza quite a few times on business trips to Beirut. The number one reason I keep coming back is the location; it really can't be beaten. It's right in the center of Hamra street with everything you need in terms of food and shopping literally a stone's throw away and the Corniche just a few blocks away. My second reason for staying here as often as I can is the staff. They are just lovely and will do whatever they can to make your stay as pleasant as they can. Breakfast is not huge but has everything you need. The rooms are a bit worn but extremely clean. All in all, it's always a warm, familiar experience and I commend a chain hotel for being able to make it so. Nothing more I could ask for just continue giving the guest the great service that you provide.
